|Me out hunting!|
Sunday, October 03, 2010
Well the last few days I have been having a love/hate relationship with technology. Since it is now officially hunting season we were in the woods doing some last minute prep to the stands. We were not getting done in time to pick up the boys from school so I needed to make arrangements for them to go to grandpa's. While on the phone with the school my phone went dead. And of coarse I was not anywhere near a charger. My husband had his in the truck but it doesn't get a signal where we were. And even if it did, I didn't know the number because they are all programed in my phone and all I see are names when dialing. Just what happened to the old days when we were a walking phone book and could memorize dozens of numbers. You know back when there were only phones at home and kids spent a whole lot more time around their parents. Now, second graders have their own cell phones and my thirteen year old calls me from his room. Well the kids were taken care of thanks to the great secretaries at school that got just enough of my phone call to get them where they needed to be. But now my youngest is coming home from cub scout camp and I can't call and check on him because the leader he is with is old school and does not have a cell phone. We are very good friends and I trust him very much and I am sure they stopped for lunch or even went to a sporting goods store and will be home soon but I so want to talk to him right now. So as for technology I am glad and sad all at the same time that you have spoiled us by making things so darn easy!
