I wonder, if I had a clear mind, would I be able to create some type of thing that people just can’t live without? Probably not, but I would like to think so–it gives me incentive to clear the chaos in my head.
I know that I have blogged about dragging my feet to trade in my old basic cell phone for a phone that is smarter than I am. Actually, I don’t see any need to carry around a phone, except in an emergency type of situation. Standing in the grocery store, discussing weekend plans does not count as an emergency in my book. I lived for many years without a phone in my purse, I didn’t see much of a reason to change that.
Personally, the most beautiful piece of technology, since Skype (which I am aware is actually a program, not a device), is the iPad. I am in love with my iPad. I can use it for distraction while on the treadmill–even though the doctor told me that I seriously need to pick up my pace and break a sweat. I tried to convince him that I sweat every time I go outside, didn’t that count? Yeah, he didn’t appreciate my humor either–why are some doctors so stinkin’ serious? I use it as my nag to do things with an alarm app, and I even have some guided meditation apps–which I seriously need to use.
Anyway, I know that I have also blogged about my need for sticky notes and many notepads in every drawer, and purse, to write down thoughts or things I don’t want to forget. I have a ginormous calender in the kitchen so that I can see it from the sink, I have a calendar in my purse, and one in our office. Crazily, I put all important dates to remember on each calendar, and obsessively check each one to make sure each calendar was in ‘sync’. Recently, I started using my iPad as my source for all information.
Since I love my iPad so much, and it is a huge hassle to lug it around to the doctor, the vet, the dentist, etc., I am getting an iPhone so that I can sync it to my iPad. All the separate little notebooks that are filled with my scribbles, but then I can’t find a particular note when I need it, will go on my phone or iPad, and they will be in sync, so that I will have all my information at my fingertips.
Perhaps I could have gotten a mini iPad, but why? I already have the bigger version, even though it isn’t extremely portable. Well, it kind of is, but with all the who-knows-what that weighs my purse down, adding one more thing is backbreaking. Besides, I was due for a phone upgrade anyway. And you never know, I might decide to discuss my weekend plans in the middle of the grocery store.
Now, I just have to figure out how to sync the devices.
Wishing you find some beauty in your day.
Oh, and no picture today because I’m sure y’all have seen either an iPhone or an iPad.
