Electronic Failure

Hey There,

I was all set to post about my dinner last night and thoughts that stemmed from it.  It’s really funny comparing my thoughts to Rob’s after the meal.  You’ll see what I mean when I post my write-up.  😉   

Anyway, I took pictures with my cell, which currently isn’t working….errrrrrr!  So, I decided on writing up a shorter post this afternoon and sharing my longer post this evening.  Keep your fingers crossed that my electronic failure is only short-term.  Between my camera and now my cell I don’t seem to be having much luck in the electronics department.  I swear I didn’t have my cell anywhere near water….not even a raindrop!

It’s ironic that before my cell died I was asking Rob to get in touch with a good college friend of his regarding cameras.  His friend is really into photography and I’m hoping that he’ll be able to point me in the right direction to getting a decent SLR camera for a beginner that won’t cause me to go broke.  

After making my pledge last week, I want to start spiffing the blog up, which includes better and more pictures.  I’m afraid to think of what I could do to an SLR with the string of luck I’ve been having lately with electronics.  I know my saying is “you break it, you fix it“, but sometimes there’s just no fixing or it costs more than the item is even worth.

Luckily, my cell is up for renewal in October and I’m pretty sure Verizon just sent me a text saying I can upgrade early.  It looks like a trip to Verizon is in my immediate future because I can’t live without my cell.  I hate driving anywhere without it on me, for fear that something might happen. 

When I first started driving, cell phones were something that you saw in the movie Clueless.  It wasn’t a part of my everyday world, that’s for sure.  Back then, beepers were the thing to have, even though I never had one.  Remember how large cell phones were when they first emerged?  It’s funny to look back on. 

Now, my cell phone is like a security blanket.  If anything happens or I need to vent, play catch up, or need someone to entertain me during a long drive I know my cell is there to help.  It was the first thing I touched after my accident in March to call Rob, my mom and the auto body shop.

Even though I’m annoyed with not having a cell today, I’m excited about getting a new one.  I don’t have internet access on my current phone and I’m thinking that’s the route I’ll be taking this time.  Have to think about the positives, right? 🙂

Another positive today is that I have a training session scheduled at the gym.  I’m looking forward to learning something new and I’m hoping that we’ll be working legs.  Ever since my knees had that flare up I’ve been trying to take it easy on them.  The trainer is aware of my knee situation and said that she had some ideas for me.  We shall see….

Ok, it’s about that time again.  I want to make sure that I get out right on time tonight so as I make it to the training appointment on time.

Hope you have a great day!
