The Other Yvonne

The Other Yvonne

I'm a stay-at-home-mom of 2 beautiful boys, married, and I enjoy scrapbooking and watching tv/movies. Came to the bay area in 1997 from NJ.
I MAY have bought a huge LEGO set for the boys today. It really felt like a guilt purchase since they didn't put much money of their own towards it, but I wanted it, too. =)
I love the fragrance of the flowering trees right now! Smells wonderful! ACHOO! ACHOO! ACHOO! I friggin' HATE the flowering trees. This sucks!!
Sadly, fitbit doesn't register as many steps when I use elliptical w/o moving hand grips. Oh well. Still, I did 45 minutes! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Good job! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Thanks, Stephen! My right ankle is paying the price today though. =( I'm hoping if I keep it up my foot will get stronger as I lose some pounds. - The Other Yvonne
My kids are awake and upstairs with my friend and her 2 boys. Do I try to get more sleep or head upstairs to help?
Ooooooh! It's snowing! I'm getting up to see the kids play.
Almost not worth going to sleep for 2.5 hours. 4:00 will be here too soon!
oof, good luck Yvonne - Stephen Mack
We are up! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Safe travels! - Half Pint
Happy trails! - Corinne L
Bon voyage! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Safe travels! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Made it here safe and sound. TIRED! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I just downed another cup of coffee to get me to the packing finish line.
OMG. How is it already Wednesday night??? 48 hour packing frenzy about to begin!
You work well under pressure! You got this! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Years of practice procrastinating. Lol! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
One of my only 'have to dos' this week is packing for our trip to CT on Saturday. But believe me, that's plenty!
Does the ending of the kids' book Sam and Dave Dig a Hole remind you of the movie Silent Hill? Discuss.
Luke was confused and a little disturbed that they end up at a place that's LIKE home, but isn't home. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
They almost released a Balrog. - Stephen Mack
I'm nodding off trying to get some stuff done on my laptop, yet I can't fall asleep when laying down in bed. I'm. So. Tired. Wahhhhhhh...
How the hell does me posting some stupid fb status like 'how do I get rid of foot fungus?' raise breast cancer awareness? And if you need to tell me not to be a spoil sport, you know it's stupid, too. So why bother? Eff these people.
Um, what? I'd be tempted to mess with them and do a mash up of all those dumb memes. Something like "I'm going to Paris for 8 months wearing a purple bra so I can get my foot fungus cured!" - Corinne L
I changed my fb status to this: Your fb statuses might be true, or they might be elaborate traps. I'm not going to like or respond to them for the time being because I don't believe cryptic messages promote breast cancer awareness. - The Other Yvonne
10 of the Most Addictive Video Games Ever Made Read more:
Yeah... I may have logged a few hours with these. =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
EverQuest was brutal - Rodfather
The Sims and WoW for me recently. Tetris in college. We used to joke that Tetris was a Russian plot to get kids to fail out of college. =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Haha - Rodfather
I'm so addicted to Clash of Clans now. I found out it almost ruined the Kansas City Royals' post season last year. I believe it - Rodfather
I spread pirated copies of Tetris at my high school back in the day. The computer teacher didn't mind. He actually loved it. It became so popular, kids would fill the computer room everyday during lunch and he loved having the kids in his classroom. - Rodfather
I wonder how much time total I have spent playing various iterations of The Sims? A freakin' lot. - Jenny H. from Android
The stat on how many shots fired in Call of Duty is amazing. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
When John cleaned out the office, he unearthed The Sims, Sims 2, Sims Deluxe, Sims Hot Date, Sims 2 Pets, Sims Castaway, Sims 3, and various books to go with them. So. Much. Time. Spent. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Don't Starve/Don't Starve Together needs to be added to that list. It's the first game in years that I have become instantly addicted to. - April Russo
Latest iOS app update 2/4, now Active Minutes not calculating. WTH?
Weird. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Apparently the 30 minutes I spent on the elliptical yesterday weren't 'intense' enough to register as active minutes. Although my body tells a different story! - The Other Yvonne
Have any active minutes registered since then? Sometimes the accelerometer doesn't work so great for measuring active minutes, depending on the activity. - Bruce Lewis
Yup! Got some yesterday. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I'm really confused about photos on my iPhone. There's Photos>Years>Collections>Moments, Albums>Camera Roll, and Albums>My Photo Stream. I've noticed that I can delete a photo from one of these 3 places and it still lives in the other 2. I feel like I can't make any headway on getting photos off my phone, and they're taking up so much space!
check the "deleted" album and empty it out? - Big Joe Silence
The kindergarten cutoff here in CA is Sept 1 meaning Luke wouldn't be eligible until 2016. In CT, the cutoff is January 1 so he'd be eligible THIS year. We see pros and cons to holding him back AND sending him. What to do?
In general, my bias is towards having the kid be oldest in the class, BUT, there are so many factors. Having Luke be closer in grade to Logan is a big issue too. Luke sure seems ready for Kindergarten to me. - Stephen Mack
The New Yorker article talks about how the younger kids have the older kids to look up to and they actually do quite well. Guess I'll have to see what his preschool teachers say at the end of the school year about his readiness... - The Other Yvonne
What dinner time looks like at my house these days. #4monthstogo
To the folks who responded to my plea for help regarding my malware. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I'm back!
It's Groundhog Day!
It's 78° here today! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Snowing here and about 25 - WarLord
It's Groundhog Day! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
OMG. I've fallen on the couch and there's no coffee made. Help!
It's Groundhog Day!
It's Groundhog Day! - Stephen Mack
It's Groundhog Day! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I need to go somewhere fun with the kids this weekend. I gotta get outta here!
Logan's a celebrity! This is our Sunnyvale Activity Guide.
That's awesome! - Stephen Mack
Royalties! You are rich I tell you, rich! - Steve C, Team Marina
#ThrowOutThursday is here! Sounds ridiculous, but I threw out like 14 empty Starbucks coffee bags. I thought they were good for free tall coffees, but apparently they stopped that a while ago. Oops! Heave ho!
Does going through my pantry and throwing out expired canned foods count? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Yes! For me it's removing anything that makes my life easier. I've been looking at those stupid coffee bags for a year. Now I know I can throw them out and make more space for things I WANT to see. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
What I made with Shannon's beads... Not bad for a beginner!
Cute! Love the 'green grass' bead, great idea! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Funny! The green grass beads were Logan's idea! =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Um. I joined a gym today. Yikes!
Yay. Go you! - Tamara J. B.
Did 20 mins on an elliptical which kicked my ass, and a Pilates/yoga class which I'm sure I'll regret tomorrow since I did it barefoot. They have onsite childcare. Yay! And it's an all-women gym. =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I'm already regretting the barefoot thing. Owwie. =( - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I set up a Melissa Etheridge station on Pandora and I'm really loving the songs being selected.
Now taking recommendations for cross country car transport. Advice online says to avoid brokers in case of damage to the car, but at this point I'll take anything! Thanks!
Hmm, my family always did it the hard way. I have a cousin who just loved road trips and has done it several times. I've never used a broker but surely there has to be a reliable one? - Stephen Mack
Last time I moved I towed mine behind the moving truck. - laura x
I used Magic Carpet Auto Transport to move my car from NY to CA. I have no complaints. The price was fair and it was delivered on time. - Mary Carmen
