Cell phones

I know I've been quiet these last few days. We've had a lot of home projects going and both kids have been battling a cold for a few weeks now.

I would like to take a quick second to say that I'm still working on fulfilling my pledge.

1 - Today, I mailed off 3 cell phones to Cell Phones for Soldiers. Go to their site, print off a free shipping label, and stick it in the mail. It's that easy. Cell Phones for Soldiers sell the phones to a recycling facility and with the proceeds purchase phone cards for soldiers. There are even directions on how to erase your personal data from the phones.

2 - I listed an old electric typewriter that is still in great condition on freecycle. I've had 2 people interested, but no one has picked up yet. The first to respond says she still wants it, but that her mom had a stroke and she can't come get it right now. I'm going to hold on to it a bit longer. I still can't believe someone wanted a typewriter. Said Hannah, "Mom, it's kind of like a computer keyboard." hee! hee!
