We use the Xbox to webcam with my mother in law and to watch tv and movies via amazon prime. We have a computer hooked up to the tv...more

Teenagehood is HARD, but I can't even imagine what it's like growing up with the constant push to over share. Not to mention the cell phones to snap a picture and document whatever shenanigans are being performed right then.
Years ago I kept a day planner. One of those fancy loose-leaf books with a calendar, to do list, planning sheets and a section for contacts. I liked my day planner. Each morning I would review my calendar and to do list to see what was going on that day. Each afternoon I would carefully move items from one day to another according to the day's events. At the end of each year, I travelled to the planning store and looked at the planning and calendar pages and carefully chose the appropriate new set of paper pages for the new year....more
