We went without the use of our cell phones all weekend.
And you know what? I actually didn't mind at all.
I rarely use mine to talk anyway. I did miss checking emails every 5 seconds. But I got over that too. Ok, so yeah, I did check it for like two hours straight to make sure it wasn't really working.
It wasn't really working.
My observation? Being able to reach people 24-7 kind of sucks. I sort of miss the old days. We had more freedom and were less stressed out. I was slightly less freaky.
I've had a cell phone forever. I was one of the first of my friends to get one. But I am the worst cell phone user ever. I always forget to turn on the ringer. I also forget to call back right away. I have a terrible habit of accidentally deleting messages before I hear them. I leave the phone in the car when I go shopping. I don't really do it on purpose. But I guess I kind of do. I mean really, I'm in Safeway for 10 minutes. What could you possibly want to talk to me about. I was just with you one minute ago.
What about you? Are you a cell phone lover or hater?
Who do you call the most? I call Don (the hubby) and home the most. We have the same conversations:
1) I forgot something and call Don to see if he will pick it up for me.
2) I call to see what he wants for dinner.
3) I call Don to let him know I'm running late and need him to pick up Elli. He hates this call because I waited until the last second to call him. Sorr-rry.
I'm kind of surprised he ever answers when I call.
I think our phones will be back on today. Which is a good thing. Because I would hate to miss that call telling me I won a year's supply of pickles. Just kidding. I did not register for a contest to win pickles. My dream house? Yes. Pickles. No.
In the meantime, just shoot me an email or a tweet @kmulkey007. My laptop is never far away.
