What a day I had yesterday!  It started out rough by getting up late then finding the SUV wouldn't start as I am rushing to get to work on time.  I had left an inverter plugged in and ran down the battery.  Drat (not exactly what I said but cleaned up here.  LOL!)  So I run to the pickup (an old Ford Ranger that I just can't seem to part with) to jump it off only to find that it's battery was dead as well.  Seems someone left the inside light on.  Sigh....  Thank goodness Cass' car was nearby and I did make it to work on time.

The real reason I bring this up is that in the process of jumping off the truck, I put my phone down on the front seat of Cass' car and left it there.  It's the first time in many years that I was without it for ANY length of time.  Now I have to ask, how did I ever live without it?  I felt almost naked and so disconnected!  I know I give the kids such a hard time about how addicted they are and need to get a life.  Now I find myself in the same position.

Ok, the kids spend their time playing games, watching videos and chatting with friends where I use my time on the phone productively keeping up with the news, stock market, gas prices, race news and yes, I play a game or two.  Seems I'm just as addicted!  I just justify it in my own way.  Seems all of us need to get a life, ya think?  As I step back, I need to spend more time with real people interaction as I find I spend more and more time on this blasted thing!

Note: I did not drive the truck enough to charge the battery on the way to work and had to jump it off  again before I came home.  LOL!  Way to cap off a great day!

Ok, I have to answer the phone (ok, my resolve to use the phone less starts tomorrow).  Hope you have a great day!
