What Do You Do With All The Time You Save?

I am part of a focus group for a major retailer.  So many of the things they ask us about have to do with changing checkout so that you buy your items with your phone as you go through the store, or doing online grocery ordering for curbside pickup.  Lately they have been asking about those services that send food to your house which are supposed to provide fresh cooked meals in 30 minutes.   Evidently they want a piece of that economic pie as well.

Commercials would lead us to believe that families use these services then rush from the dinner table, flinging paper plates into the trash so that they can play soft ball with their kids.  I can’t tell you the last time I saw a family in my neighborhood play ball outside or even throw a Frisbee (ahem, “novelty flying disc”) for their dog.

So, I wonder, what do you do with all of the time you save?

Whee!

Teeny Tiny Toby’s Terrible Tuesday Temper Tantrum

 

Roar!

…which really took place on a Monday…but I am posting about it on a Friday!

I got fortunate in that Toby decided to throw one of these fits in front of the vet.  She was taken aback at the viciousness of his outburst.  She said that this is simply what he does when he doesn’t get his way, and no one should give in to him or he will learn that this is how he gets what he wants.  The down side?  This

Ouch.

I was feeling happy that my little monster had largely outgrown this phase, until today.  Then ol’ crabby pants showed up again to say that he did not appreciate the hug I gave him after supper.  Looks like I had better keep the Band Aids handy.
