Up and down, down and up

Some days,

Up and down. Down and up. Sweet and sour. Good and bad. Laughter and tears. Happy and sad.

Things have been moving slowly but steadily in the family day care department. I encountered a few delays and glitches in the administrative side of things, but thankfully it’s all sorted out now.

The calls and enquiries have started trickling, mostly from parents just asking around. I’ve had to turn down a couple of really interested parents because I was not able to meet certain specific requirements they needed. But two families have pretty much confirmed their interest. Next step will be to arrange an introductory meeting and take it from there,

Hope you are having a nice day wherever you are.

 

Here are some nice bits and pieces I’ve picked up lately…

And also sometimes it doesn’t always pay to be an early adopter, otherwise you’d be left high and dry sitting on sad half-baked versions of…

The first computer mouse, which was essentially a wooden block on wheels.

The first electronic calculator, considered pretty lightweight at that time weighing 30 pounds.

And the world’s first microwave oven, measuring 6 feet tall and costing $5,000. It didn’t sell very well apparently. Can’t imagine why.
