[ - ] This is so annoying. My SIL calls her daycare "school" to her 3 yo. As in "you're going to school today" when it's some woman's lame basement. It really irks me that she is so delusional. 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I just posted below...it's VERY tough. You have to get DH to help. Have him help with dinner, getting db's things ready for the next day so you can go for a walk/jog once db is in bed. I get off a few stops early during my commute to get some brisk walking in, and I jog a few times a week at 8pm once db is asleep.

It's not a specific thing--it's a word to describe a type of marketing. Viral means you create a campaign aimed at getting others to forward something around or talk about something (i.e., it's so cool, it's viral/contagious). [ Reply | More ]

Marketers try to use 'viral' as a way to get the word out about a service or product. For example, you would try to get a Blogger to talk about it, or post on a message board such as this. That gets the word spread, and journalists pick it up, folks start to buy your product or service. [ Reply | More ]

She likes the Bindi jungle girl show, she loves shows on the food network and House Hunters (because she likes to see if she can guess what house they will pick at the end..lol) and she loves animal/nature shows on discovery. Anything that has a lot of interesting information. She's certainly has not been like this always but she's in a "sponge" age where she wants to find out more, more, more.
