The Evil Twin and I are tightening our belts. We finally decided to ditch our landline and cancel most of our cable options. We just don't use the phone or watch the TV (or I should say, we're paying for channels we NEVER watch), we have Netflix, so we won't be hard up for entertainment.
We also figured we would make my cell phone the "main" phone. The Evil Twin has a phone with a generous minute plan - very affordable and plenty of minutes for his usage. Buddy has his cell phone which is pay as you go - he rarely uses it, even to text message his friends.
I started looking around for a "smartphone" with a decent plan that the whole family could use if necessary. I decided to go for the HTC EVO 4G. I've heard nothing but glowing reviews of this phone.
According to the FedEx website, it should be here tomorrow! Yippee!
It was pretty funny - after I had placed my order, I was on the landline phone with a friend and the battery died. I took that as a sign that it's time for us to be "Moving on up, To the East Side, to a deluxe phone plan in the skyyyyy." Oh, sorry. That's "The Jefferson's". (I loved that show!).
Anypoodle, I can't wait to get the new phone. I love new little gadgets. Of course, it'll be something else for me to learn the ins and outs.
I decided to transfer my existing cell number to the new phone instead of our home number. We get so many wrong numbers and sales calls on that line, even though we registered with the "Do Not Call" list.
Now, we'll just have the hassle of letting everyone know to dial the cell number from now on.
Keep your fingers crossed I can figure out this new-fangled technology! LOL.
My kids are off school the entire week next week. I'm actually looking forward to a bit of a break/change in routine. Plus, I think everyone but me is looking forward to the Thanksgiving feast this year. I'm going to try to track down a tofurkey for myself and see how that goes. There! Now, you can tell your friends, "I actually know someone who loves tofu." (it's true, I do!)
Happy Friday, hooligans!
