Sent from my iPhone


I have Never been on top of technology. Much to my husband's dismay, it really doesn't bother me, either. With cell phones, I would be happy with a bag phone, honestly, if I didn't already have so many other bags to carry around on my shoulder. But today, I have reached a new level. Jason bought me an iPhone 3G. I cannot believe how cool I am!
Several years ago, before kids, I was at a nighttime establishment (ok, bar- I was very legal) with some friends in Birmingham. All of their cell signals on their snappy little phones had died and someone was asking around for a phone. I pulled out my mammoth Nokia green phone from college that just barely fit in my purse. I think my friend Rachel (who is president of Stalkers Anonymous- see below) split her seams laughing at me, but wouldn't you know it, since my battery was the size of a car battery I had a signal! Aha! (This phone was similar to the one Zack Morris used in Saved by the Bell. And I think it was 2003.)
So, as you see, peer pressure really doesn't bother me. It was my husband's insistence that this phone would change my life that finally got me to cave in. He was right about the TiVo, so I'm trusting him. So far, I haven't even touched it (again, Jason will be disappointed), but if it doesn't do laundry- or at least separate it- I'm taking it back. I will keep you updated on my progress with my new toy.
I'm off to Discovery Weekend as an "adult" leader (am I really an adult)? Discovery is a church retreat that our church has each year for our middle and high school students. Jason and I have taken turns being leaders since it started 3 years ago, so it's my year! YEAH! I'll have to post some pictures of the worship service on Sunday. It's awesome!
Happy Friday!

I am so much the same when it comes to technology. Not only am I not on top of things, it really doesn't bother me. I too had the Zack Morris phone and was perfectly fine with it even though Robyn always laughed at me. So this post hits home with me.
