I know that I have mentioned a couple of times that I have issues with technology. We simply do not get along. Desk top computers were intimidating. There were wires and connections everywhere and with my propensity for moving furniture, I was terrified to disconnect anything to move the thing for fear that I would hook things up wrong and get sucked into some weird computer world. I think there was a kids show about that!
I got my first laptop about 15 years ago and the price was astronomical! Now you can get them for a few hundred dollars. My current one is lighter, but not necessarily smaller. But, I did decide to get a tablet or notebook, not sure what to call it. You know like a Samsung tablet or an IPad. The kids think it is a hoot, because although I use it to check facebook, emails, etc., I use it mostly to play free cell. There are 100,000 games to win and I have made it may mission to win every scenario of the game that there are. I am currently on game 4,755. It's going to take me a while.
Cell phones and I struggle. My kids will tell you that I never answer my phone. Not so! Whenever I can find it, I answer it. Of course, that is assuming that the battery isn't dead and the ring tone is turned on. It is a standard joke in our house, that I never know where my phone is. I hate to admit it, but I do ask that million dollar question - "Where is my phone?" at least ten times a day. The really odd thing is that it isn't a small phone. It is about the size of a checkbook - I suppose I am the only one who still owns and uses a checkbook. Anyway, the point is it isn't hard to find.
Not too long ago, "The Ninja" was here and helping me with some issue with my phone. I think I lost an address or something. I don't know. I had the thing for a year and a half before I even knew it had a stylus stored inside it! Anyway, I had handed her my phone to get some assistance with one of the 5,000 features that it has that I never use. Not two seconds after I handed her my phone, the next question out of my mouth was "Where's my phone? I can't find it and I swear I just had it." The silence in the room was rivaled only by the look one everyone's faces.
If I can manage to keep the ringer on, and sometimes I don't want to, you will know my phone in a heartbeat. The ring tone is the theme song from "Lost in Space", the television show. It is awesome! And throughout the night you can hear "Danger Will Robinson." when I get a test message. I really need a ringtone that says "That does not compute!" I need to work on that, if only I could find my phone!
Wife, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Nurse, Grandmother, Friend...that's me in a nutshell!
