We are very excited at home. What’s new? We have a new arrival living with us! No, I did not have a baby, but of sorts… The kids’ favorite aunt, Marlene, will be in town visiting for 4 months! That will definitely change the whole family dynamic this holiday season, and we couldn’t be happier. Our goal will be Keeping in Touch. That is because she will be very busy from home to home, shopping and doing things with the kids. But, since she is staying at our house, I want to stay connected with her in case she need anything at all.
Aunt Duties and Keeping In Touch
Eager to spend time with the kids, auntie has already taken over many chauffeuring duties. A lifesaver for me with how hectic my schedule is slowly becoming with the holiday preparations. It gives me enormous peace of mind to have given her the ZTE Zinger phone (only $34.88) because she quickly understood how to operate it. Besides that my budget is kept in check considering that her phone line is an affordable $34.88 a month for all the talk, text, and web. Yes, it is the Unlimited Talk, Text & Web service plan.
Communication and Keeping in Touch
We keep in constant communication about how things are going, if ballet class was canceled, whether she will be skipping dinner with us. I love how she is taking so many photos of the kids and really is documenting life with them. I am not missing a thing at all!
Marlene is getting around the city just fine with the GPS and the internet. As you can imagine everyone wants to be in touch with her, so she is calling us all constantly. She is definitively giving the phone and the service a run for the money! Amazing when you consider she has only been here for 4 days!
The best part of it is that she is not restricted. Neither she nor I have to be counting minutes or worrying about data size because we have unlimited everything on the phone! I can’t be stressing over this
I do have a lot to be thankful for this year. I just keep counting my blessings with Aunt Marlene’s arrival. The joy, help, support, and love added to our lives with her arrival has everyone very happy and very ready to plunge into the festivities coming up!
I sure hope you are getting ready for an amazing Thanksgiving celebration with your loved ones. What are you thankful for this November?
