Text Me.


My husband is a bit older than me. Well, let's just say it - 17 years older than me - but I'm a bit of an old soul, so it works for us.

One thing we've never seemed to link up on is technology. Since I'm in marketing, and we marketers are always looking for the newest thing to get the word out and get people to buy, buy, buy, I'm typically an early adopter when it comes to new things.

I walk around the house with my iPad, Blackberry (we no longer have a home phone), laptop, Rebel camera, Flip camera, etc. and most of the time he just ignores me. Actually, most of the time I'm not even using the stuff, just carrying them either up or downstairs or looking for one of the fifty million charges for each device because I have a dead battery and cannot ever find the darn things (I digress).

So when my hippie husband - child of the 50s, teen of the seventies - decided he wanted a cell phone several years ago, I was thrilled. Soon, I couldn't separate him from the thing.

Then, he saw how cool my Blackberry was,  now he has his own.

This week, he's realized the power of the text. He can communicate with me, his students, his mom, and never actually talk to anyone on the phone. For someone that can't stand to spend more than three minutes at a time on a phone speaking with someone, this is a huge discovery.  This morning, when he kissed me goodbye, he said the three words every woman wants to hear from their husband "I'll text you."

While I applaud his willingness to catch up to the modern day, I am a bit worried I may never receive a real phone call from him again.

Stay tuned.

  3. Jamie is only 4 years older than me, but he didn't have a cell phone until I was pregnant with Caitlyn and I forced him to get one. When we got a plan with free texting he started slow, but now loves it! He doesn't even have a phone with a keyboard which would drive me INSANE. Now if I could only get him to answer when I call...

    I wish more people would text. Sometimes it's just easier than making a phone call! :))

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back . Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets. Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad. Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!! Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night . I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

The Power of Prayer

I wanted to update on a previous post about my uncle ( you can read it here ). In September, he was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. He has undergone numerous rounds of chemo and radiation and received results back from his latest PET scan this Monday. Of chief concern was the tumor in the lower lobe of the right lung and the lymph nodes in the center of his chest. The scan showed that there was NO cancer activity in the lymph nodes! All in all, it was a great report! My aunt and uncle, with their grandkids. My prayer list is long for friends and family members struggling with disease and lately, I hear of so many children struggling as well. It's so hard not to question God during these times, but to put complete faith in him - which is much easier said than done! Isaiah 40:31 But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Another wonderful praise that happe

Pretty Women

I think I've seen the movie Pretty Woman about 100 times and it will always be my favorite. My husband thinks it's the cheesiest movie he has ever seen, but hey, he's not the target audience. So, my tour of Rodeo Dr started at the Reg Bev Will (Pretty Woman fans, you know what I'm talking about). Walking through it, the lobby looked so much smaller than in the movie. We ended up at the back entrance, and plopped down on a bench and acted like we owned the place for a bit while watching for anyone famous. We saw numerous $100 thousand+ cars, and one chick with long blonde hair (only from the back) that had to be famous, but we didn't see her face. Then, we walked down Rodeo, into a couple of stores that I couldn't afford to buy a keychain in, tried on a $1,200 pair of shoes, and walked right into a celebrity sighting. One of my goals while in LA was to see someone famous. And, she may not be on the A-list, but it was still pretty cool. Meet the beautiful Cam
