Thursday Thirteen #5

Thirteen Modern Miracles I couldn't live without.

1. Automatic Coffee Pot.

2. For that matter, flavored creamer in those really convinient plastic containers.

3. TV. With Remote. I am addicted to the news and weather. I couldn't imagine having to depend on the radio for all that!

4. Laptop. Although I could settle for a desktop, but again couldn't live without a computer.

5. Washing machine and Dryer. I actually don't mind hanging clothes out to dry, but could you even think about washing clothes by hand? Scrubbing out stains and spots? No thank you. Now when they invent a machine to automatically fold, I am so there.

6. Swiffer. Since I got one, our floors are really cleaner because I wash the floor more often.

7. Digital Clocks. Forget analog, although, yes, I do know how to tell time on one.

8. Whiteout. hehe...

9. Air Conditioning. Central air to exact, although we haven't had to use it 3 times yet this year.

10. Tampons. I haven't have my period in over 2 1/2 years (I feel like I have been constantly pregnant. :P), but tampons rock.

11. Disposable diapers. I was made to do alot of things as a kid that my mom wouldn't. One was the cloth diaper changing and cleaning. I know what they are about and I SO do not ever want to do that again.

12. Packaged food and plastic wrappers. Can you imagine coming home from the store with a handful of blueberries wrapped in a piece of cloth?

13. C-sections and modern medicine. Because I would be literaly dead without it!

Yeah computers and Swiffers are my top two.


Who could live without those things now-a-days. I couldn't do without it especially washing machines.
I'll try to put it up on my next TT.
Thanks for dropping by.

Good ones! Thank goodness for disposable diapers--I bought cloth ones, but just couldn't do it, too much time and yuck! We don't have the diaper services where I am. Tampons, great thing, I wish I had made it longer after having Justice without the monthly visit, no fun. Washer and Dryer, Swiffer, thank goodness for that otherwise my floors would be neglected for sure! Thanks for stopping by today!

You haven't had a period in 2 1/2 years? Awesome! My longest stint was about 18 months.

Also, I concur with Naomi about the diaper service.
