SO, if you read my other notes, you know i lost my cell phone in NYC and some wonderful person found it and promised to send it back! Well i FINALLY got it on Friday! yippee!! much coordination when into it and really i probably could have just bought a new one and been better off... but i digress.
what i noticed was something very interesting. here i thought i was not that big of a cell phone or email checker via phone user.
the first couple of days were kind of fun and freeing like living on the wild side! oooh i can't be contacted or contact others! living dangerously!
then it just got annoying. i couldn’t call my husband on the way home from work to give him a 'traffic is really horrific' update or 'whoo hoo! no traffic i will be home in 10 minutes! let's go out to eat!' update... no... just had to get home when i got home.
then the really fun part - back to back meetings at work! where am i supposed to be and meeting with at what time? i actually wrote everything down LOL
it was a fun learning experiment. i really really really like having my phone and being connected. i no longer see it as a frivolous thing that i just get to have as a perk of the job and now see it as a NECISSITY! one that i am very grateful for!!
Am i the only one to figure out that something i thought was a silly perk is actually something useful?
