Talk To Me About Technology
Bootsie finds yarn balls and thinks they are her kittens. She carries them around the house and yowls at them. Somehow, while Duane was napping, she tangled her kittens around his nasal canula. The loop part that goes around his face. He is not a sound sleeper and is wondering how she did this without him waking up. Unless he's in a medicated coma, all I have to to is touch him and he wake right up. Imagine his surprise when he got up from a nap to find he was dragging around a big yarn tangle from his face.
I'm not a whiner or complainer, but please indulge me this once. I have twenty-five minutes to walk 1.5 miles to punch into the computer at work. Then 25 minutes to walk the 1.5 miles from work to the bus stop or I have to wait another 30 minutes for the next bus. I almost didn't make it to the bus home tonight. I'm short, 5 feet tall, so I have to step twice as much as taller people twice as fast.
My legs hurt so bad. I'm sooo tired and hurt sooo much, I could cry. Then thinking about my schedule the next week and a half, I want to cry. I want to give up, but we know I won't. I'm just hoping it will get easier once my body gets used to the walk.
Talk to me about technology. When it comes to mobile devices, I'm a Luddite. I have a tracphone with a bunch of minutes on it, from when I was on Safelink back in NY. Those minutes are going to run out in a month with calling home every day while on break. I'm going to tell you what I need and those of you in the know will suggest what I should look into getting.
The walk is boring, so I want to play music while I'm walking and maybe I won't notice the pain quite so much. I would like to surf blogs and have patterns accessible while I'm on the bus and on break at work. Texting is moot issue as I refuse to learn how to text. Text me and you will not get a response. Do I get an Ipad and just pay as I go for the tracphone? I'll use about 300 - 400 minutes a month. What? Any ideas as to what I should look for? Talk to me.
