Simplify My Life.....PLEASE!!!!!


At this time of the year, it is only natural to reflect on the events of the old year and anticipate the opportunities the new year holds. As we plunge into 2010, I have decided to try to make some changes in my life.... to simplify my life.
I am an extremely busy stay at home Mom of two sons and like all other mothers, I find myself moving in many different directions. My boys are older now, I have a son in college and one in high school. When they are younger, you think about the time when they are older and can do things for themselves, but I have found that there are new challenges, concerns and things for Mom to do, no matter what their ages are.
My New Year's Resolution for 2010 is to simplify my life and enjoy living now! How can I accomplish this, you ask. I am planning to get myself more organized so that I waste less time looking for lost items, for misplaced papers, sorting stacks of accumulated mail, I am going to become more efficient. While technology can complicate your life, it can also save time and it can help in my quest for a more organized life.
HP and Moms Blogger Club are sponsoring a contest with the theme "Simplify my Life" and the prize, drum roll please..... a HP Mini with Windows® 7 Home Premium!
A HP mini could simplify my life in so many ways! It is small enough to take with you, where ever your busy life might take you (3.22 lbs.). I am constantly on the road, taking someone somewhere, picking up someone or just running errands. The HP mini would be perfect to take along to check email, surf the web or just have all that vital information with you at all times.


You could win at HP Tord mini! Just comment on my post and get your name in the hat!

  1. Everything you mentioned rang true. Good Luck to you! I entered, also!
    This HP 100 Mini netbook would be a blessing to our family, too, as we only have one old desktop to share amongst our family of 7. We rely heavily on spreadsheets, lists,email and schedules, etc. to streamline our day to day activities, and the portability of the HP 100 mini would make it so effortless and stylish. Plus, mobile computing would be perfect to pass the time--when time seemingly stands still--like when waiting in a doctor's office!

    Good Luck!

  2. A mini would definitely simplify my life because I wouldn’t have to lug around that big heavy laptop anymore!! And it would fit inside my handbag instead of being so conspicuous in a carry around laptop bag. And besides, you don’t always want to carry your laptop with you but leaving it in the car is a direct invitation to thieves to break in and steal it. Being able to carry it in my purse is a major advantage! Great giveaway!

  3. A HP Mini 110 would simplify my life by allowing me to keep up with all of my computer activities (blogging, emailing, entering contests, social networking, surfing the Internet, etc.) when I'm not able to be on my laptop (which just so happens to be a HP) for whatever reason. With 4 kids, the reason I'm not able to be on my laptop could be anything! :O

  4. I have never had a laptop or netbook. A HP Mini would simplify my life by allowing me to move around the house while doing my blogging and checking emails.

    Good luck to you!

  5. So true! As a mom to 7, ranging from 5 yrs to 30, I'm on the go so much. The HP mini would be the perfect way to keep in touch while on-the-go!

    Good luck to all!

  8. Good luck! I do a lot of traveling and use a friend's extra laptop while I'm on the road. It would be great if I didn't have to use his and didn't have to carry such a big thing through airport security!

  10. Every year I try to simplify my life, but I only seem to be happy when I'm spinning 100 plates in the air. Now that my children are further along in school, I've gone back to school to get a Masters. Hey, maybe once I get it, I can do one job instead of six! I'd love to have a mini notebook, or should I say, my daughter would love to steal it from my room!

  12. Such great reasons for winning this contest! I definitely agree with you there! Technology is a blessing in some ways and some ways not. My pc just died so I would love to win one!

  13. I know a HP Mini would make all the difference with me also, while I am at home or on the go. I can quickly get to my photos and files, take notes, send a letter off to friends, teachers and family, able to work on my scrapbooks while sitting and waiting for the kids at band or dance practice,very lightweight to take with me on the go. I can easily use my calendar and look at our busy schedules. At night I can work on my blog, that really needs to be updated without waking anyone up, I can enjoy a little quiet Mommy Time.

  15. Something this small would be really convenient for me since I need a computer for work and it is light enough to take on the bus which I use to commute every day. I could check e-mails & bills on my commute. My old laptop was actually stolen recently so I would love a new one! Good luck!

  21. I was looking at the HP mini Tord and Windows 7 and love all the features of both. The laptop is beautiful and Windows 7 features would really simplify my life. I love that it has a large HD and it has quick access features to find the files I need. And there is fast web surfing.

    Good luck!
