How in the world did I survive without a cell phone?
What did I fill my day with when I didn't tweet, text, email, Facebook or blog?
Prior to my iPhone, retrieving email on my cell was like sending messenger pigeons into cyberspace hoping they came back with some news about the newest JCrew arrivals or something.
As soon as I would arrive home from work each day, I would disappear into the office and jump on the laptop to check my email and blog.
Inevitably my time there would be extremely limited because some people around here (who shall remain nameless) get hungry and actually want things like dinner to be cooked.
I called it my "unwinding" time, but after an hour commute, let's face it...how much more unwinding did I need to do?
It's just that inquiring minds have to know if Williams Sonoma will have Cuisinart products on sale and if anyone commented on their recent blog post.
This time last year hubby and I purchased iPhones and life became very different.
I no longer need to go on the laptop to be on top of all of cyberspace's comings and goings.
Since our phones never leave
I have the ability to check my blog incessantly and you can bet your stars that I do.
Hubby and I have texted each other from room to room instead of actually going to find each other.
And let's not even talk about the 8 Words with Friends games I have going.
I listen to the music I have downloaded or Pandora when I am cooking dinner.
I would safely say that I am addicted.
I am a SocialMedialite if there even was such a thing.
It dawned on me this week that if I added up the minutes I spend on my phone each day I would be appalled at how much of my life is wasted away by the little black box that now controls it.
In order to regain some of myself back, I tucked it away today in the bottom of this fabulous vintage purse and am proud to say that I only checked it twice while out running errands for an hour and a half.
Although it is sitting here right next to me as I type away on the laptop.
Baby steps....baby steps....
