So Much To Do!

Sorry I've been MIA. I've been super busy lately, which has prompted me to look for better ways to keep track of everything on my many plates.

I discovered TaDa List and it's AWESOME. It is different enough from the To Do list feature on my Outlook that I can really use and find it super helpful. I have made different lists - general and specific ones for cases I'm working on - and I reorder them at the beginning of the day. I can access TaDa on my Blackberry, too.

Now I just need to find a web-based application that makes the day longer...

I Want This

It's not easy for us to charge things now that we have kittens who like to chew on cords. We charge a cell phone and have to stay nearby. Then we have to wrap up the cords and put them out of chewing range. Which means, of course, that we can't find them again when we need to charge something.

This table would be perfect.

Patience? Not so much.

I want my _______ (depending on the day, insert: ice cream, juice, dvds, Sugar Sweet Sunshine cupcakes, pet food, dream job, vacation -- wait, ignore those last two), and I want it at my front door in 20 minutes.

Luckily, since I live in Manhattan, this can actually happen.

When I need basic groceries, dvds, or Sugar Sweet Sunshine cupcakes, I go with MaxDelivery.

When I need pet food or litter or toys for our kitties, I got with PetNetDirect.

They are perfect for anything you can't get from Delivery.com or SeamlessWeb.

Between these four services, pretty much everything is covered for a rainy or snowy day, or when you just don't. want. to. go. outside.

Bulbs for Spring

I am buying a bunch of bulbs to plant for the spring. They are shipped at the right time for your climate zone (in October for NYC), and they bloom next spring and summer. You can force bulbs inside (like you've seen done with Hyacinth and Amaryllis a lot around Christmas). Check out my choices.
