It's too bad that word is the reason for so many problems, because I hate being tied to my phone. Since I'm tied to people and places who don't read email or so many that depend on reaching me by phone, I feel a little out of sorts.
I stayed with Katherine most of the day yesterday, and we had another great day. I used my phone only for a couple of phone calls, checking on my appointment times for the rest of the week, and then letting Kate "color" on my Happy Color app while we waited for Mom to get home.
When Emily brought me home, she drove me down the parkway to get a better view of the new snow on the mountains. I got out my phone to take a picture and saw that it was turning off. I guess that one app had just drained the 100% battery power I had had all day.
Or something. I will never be on top of this phone knowledge. I need one, and other people need me to have one, but I want only to do phone calls, texts, emails, a few apps, and store my pictures.
So now the only way I have to communicate is by email or by asking Elise to call someone for me or receive calls. It will probably get tricky when I get through with PT today and need my ride to pick me up at the door. Luckily, Emily is right around the corner and can probably do it for me. Otherwise, I'll just go downstairs and sit in the waiting room and hope Elise will appear at the pickup place.
That and leftover snow are enough to make it not a good Thursday so far.
I know Ryan will have me another phone on the way soon, but I also know there will be a learning curve. I've been perfectly happy with my Android, but they're talking about my "needing" an iPhone. Do I really? I don't know, but we'll see.
Just a few pictures from yesterday, and then I have my Thursday to tackle.
The only alone time she had all day - when I received a phone call. That pile of Legos intimidates me, but both girls get so excited when they sit down to create their little scenes.
