My cell phone is on it's last legs with the battery. It's just not holding a charge like it used to.
So, I ordered a new phone.
You can read more about it here.
I also got my drink on the other night and ordered a GPS, because after JFab loaned us hers for our trip to Disney, we really fell in love with the thing:
Here's the link to learn more about the unit I purchased: Garmin GPS
As you can see, both offer the Bluetooth technology, so I'm hoping I can figure out how to use the phone and GPS together, for hands free talking. I don't get many calls on my cell phone, but they always seem to be at the most inopportune time while I am driving, then I'm fishing around in my purse to try to locate it, swerving all over the place, etc.
This should be much easier... IF I can get it to work! LOL.
I plan on keeping my old phone number and moving it to the new phone, getting a new number for the old phone and passing that phone onto Buddy. He'll just have to charge it more often than a new one. In a few months, we'll see how it's going and get him a new model. Really, at the Virgin Mobile store, you can find nice phones for as little as $9.99 and the prepaid plans are very good and affordable... This works for us, since we still have our land line and use our cells very sparingly.
I love getting new gadgets! The phone is scheduled to arrive today and the GPS tomorrow, so I can spend my long weekend becoming acquainted with my new schtuff.
It's a beautiful day here today and I have nothing on my schedule, so I'm catching up on housework. You know, I like to do laundry late at night when I am alone and can get it all dried, folded and put away on my own. But, it's difficult to wash the kids' sheets if I stick to that late night schedule.
So, Sissy's bed linens are in the wash as we speak. I think she was a little bothered that I was "messing" up her big girl bed, but I had to explain that the sheets need a washing and they'd be ready to put back on her bed today - but all nice and clean and smelling fresh (I use liquid Tide detergent - only - and the generic store brand fabric sheets in the dryer. My stuff always smells SO nice!)
Oh! And I have to give a shout out to a friend who has a birthday today. He doesn't have a blog and I doubt that he even reads this one, but he's a special guy. In fact, we gave Buddy this friends middle name as Buddy's middle name: Vincent. Well, after our friend and the Evil Twin loves Vincent Price, so it was a double vote of "yae" on that name.
Plus which, we were then set up to give Sissy a V middle name as well and settled on Vivian - my all time FAVE V girls name and it reminds me of Vyvyan from the British TV show - Young Ones. Even though that Vyv is a guy. The British tend to regard Vivian as a gender neutral name. Vyv from the Young Ones, Vivian Stanshall from the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band... Well, really, those are the only two I can think of. And Vivian Stanshall's given name was Victor (another good V name). If Sissy had been a Buddy #2, her middle name would have been either Victor or Chaney (from Lon Chaney, Sr.)
Can you tell the Evil Twin is really, really into the Universal monsters?
Okay, enough rambling! I hope I included enough to impress my readers from Europe and the land of Oz enough, too! :-)
