10/52 photo challenge

oh the things that make my life easier! the challenge for this week was knowing where to stop! the list could go on and on...

i bet y'all thought i was gonna post a picture like this, huh...


well, i've decided to go the more uncommon route. while we all benefit from dishwashers, electricity, washing machines, running water, cars, etc., here are a few things that indeed make my life easier!


indoor toilets. believe me, for the amount of times i go to the bathroom any average day (or night, for that matter) an indoor toilet certainly makes my life easier! and not just any indoor toilet. more specifically, a western style toilet as opposed to a squat toilet i once saw in an indian movie. i can guarantee that would be disastrous with me.

my laptop, sheba. ok, i guess most everyone benefits from computers and email. but i just cringe at the thought of having to write a letter to communicate with my friends and family. oh, and i don't know how i'd blog without her...



wet wipes. kids. need i say more for you to realize how they make my life easier? and i'm not just talking about diaper changes.

keyless entry. have you ever carried a 25 pound wiggling toddler, a purse, diaper bag, 4 heavy grocery sacs, while holding your 5-year-old's hand and all at the same time fumbled with your keys (that you can't see) to get the car door unlocked? well i haven't! because i have this wonderful little button on my keychain that unlocks the doors for me. now if i only had remote start...

showers. raise your hand if you take a bath every day. every other day? once a week? anyone? no one? yep... that's what i thought. the shower is something i take for granted. and i shouldn't because boy, it's a whole lot easier than taking a bath. although it would be nice to soak in the bath once a week... but that's out because remember, i have kids.

my alarm clock. my internal clock is so off that i'd be in big trouble if i didn't have my alarm to wake me!

night lights. 2, 3, 4, sometimes 5 or even 7. that's how many times i get up at night thanks to the children or my bladder. i wonder how many injuries i'd have if i didn't have night lights all over the house. and i'm sure ben wouldn't like it if i turned the big light on at 3am!



one-stop shopping. really, 'nough said.




ben. now i'm not trying to be sappy by saying that ben makes my life easier, because he really does. except for the times when, well, he doesn't!


what makes your life easier?!

I never would have thought of some of these things but how true!

I don't know how I lived before I got my laptop and I did used to have to turn the key manually to get the door to open - what a pain!

I am so jealous of the Super Target! Why can't they put any in California!?!

How did I live before baby wipes? And yes, keyless entry - that's a big one!
