HEEEYYYY all you Techies out there that love your Smart Phones. Yup, I'm belly-aching about my phone again. Why oh why does it PING early every morning? What is it trying to tell me? I am not used to carrying a 3" x 5 1/2" thing around in one hand or stuffed in my back pocket where I periodically sit down on. I can't count the times I have misplaced it or it has slipped out of the side pocket of my purse. I refuse to go back to carrying a phone in my bra for convenience, because we know how that turned out. If you, dear reader, don't know, I am 99% sure that is how my breast cancer got triggered. The electricity from the ringing phone started dormant cancer cells (which everyone has) to start partying, and developed into a big tumor. So don't wear any phone in your bra, please.
The other day my phone rang. I could hear it but I couldn't find it. I ran from room to room, but could not locate it! In disgust, I jammed my hands into my jeans back pockets. Guess what? There that sucker was. It had been ringing "behind" me all that time. I hope all my darling girlfriends (and my daughter who had nicknamed me "Flip" for flip phone) are happy that they all peer-pressured Hubby into getting me a smart one. I guess some people are just not meant to be using the latest things. I am definitely old-school. Besides, I think it hates me. sigh
I am a little lonely today. My Nina BFSILPIC (best friend, sister-in-law, partner in crime) has left the continent. Yessirree, that girl is in Israel! Got a picture on Facebook from her this morning showing the lobby of the airport in Tel Aviv. She said it was cold and rainy. It is hard having her travel somewhere without her husband or me, but she is with a big group from her church. She is looking forward to seeing Jerusalem. Most of these trips also take the group to Rome, but unfortunately not this time. She would have loved to see some of Italy. I considered going with her for about 5 seconds, but then had a creepy feeling that with my luck, the old Vertigo would hit due to the long plane flight, and that would have been awful to go through that far from home. I would be throwing up and walking to the right, right, right instead of straight ahead.
Talking about Nina, she got me laughing so hard the other day. I was working on some things in our Woodbridge building which just happens to be right across the street from Nina's house. She saw my car parked there and decided to come over and visit for a bit. When she got there, she asked me if we graded the hill outside the building. I told her "no" since the ground had been frozen and we hadn't had time to do any grass-planting or landscaping. She said she had not walked in by the driveway, but had walked over the hill and had come down the slope and had left some footprints in the mud. We have had quite a thaw here and everything is mushy. I didn't think much about it, until she went to leave and noticed that she wasn't wearing any shoes! She had left them out on the front cement porch. When I saw them, I had to laugh. There sat two mud clumpy shoes. She had sunk up to her ankles walking through the mush. and left deep holes in the slope. Too funny!
I haven't put out a HAIR UPDATE in quite a while. I am trying to see how long I can go growing my hair. I realize I am probably a tad too old to wear long hair, but dang it, I've tried the bald look and wasn't too keen on that. Anyway, I just got it trimmed yesterday and it is still past my shoulders. I've never had it this long. I'm going to keep on going until it really drives me nuts, and then cut it off.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
