Countdown to Thanksgiving (cont.)...


It's my 2nd consecutive Countdown to Thanksgiving blog post! And today, I'm feeling thankful for something that I'm not sure I could live without- Google! (These are in no specific order, by the way. Google is great but not necessarily a close second to my husband and kids, knowumsayin?) Anyway, I use it at least two dozen or more times a day. I am a Google dependent. Pretty sure that if I had to live without it people would ask what happened to me. "Alicia always seemed so creative and informed. What happened?" In reality, I don't think I've ever had an original thought pass through my head. Everything I do is some form of something that I saw on the net. I need a recipe- google it! What the heck is a fartlek? Google it! What time is the movie? Google it! Need ideas for a lesson handout? Google it! You get the idea. I'm not necessarily a bright lady but imagine how much dumber I would be without Google! Ever had to live even just a day or two without the internet and felt completely paralyzed? I have! It's so sad but true. What an amazing thing to have all this info right at our fingertips! Yay Google! Yay computer! Yay fartleks! (Google it.) ;)

I completely agree!!! I have had to "suffer" without the instant knowledge that I have come to depend on for several days and it is torture! Fartlek.. hmm who knew? I DID google it and waddyaknow? :)

Right you are, sweetie! Google is worth its weight in gold! Remember how I used to tell you kids to look things up that you didn't know?? I am glad to see that you still remember the counsel.
And I even find myself looking up words that haven't found their way into my old blue Websters. Fartlek...lol....I just had to find out if you were trying to pull one over on me!! ;) Just seeing what you can get by with, aren't you??
Love,
Mom
