To a smart phone! I've been using the LG Lotus for a long while now. Prior to that I had regular old flip phones. At least the Lotus has a qwerty keyboard. I've been doing just fine with these phones, but I think it's time to move up to a smart phone. So, I've taken the plunge and I'm going big! Joe got me an iPhone for Christmas.
Honestly, I've really had no desire to get a smart phone. Joe uses one and I just can't stand it. It's so complicated and there's so many more steps to do simple functions like making a call and sending a text. Plus I have fat fingers so using the touch screen to type is a big pain in the ass. Everyone who uses a smart phone says you get used to it. Hopefully I'll get used to it sooner rather than later.
I know, I know, I sound like a whiny old fuddy-duddy who can't move forward with technology. But it's not that I can't move forward with technology, it's that I've never felt the need to do more with my phone than make/receive calls and texts. It wasn't until recently that I've had a need to check my email from my phone. I can check it from my Lotus, but it's a very time consuming process and the screen is very small, making a lot of it limited.
So, the iPhone arrives tonight. I'm so stoked to play around with it and familiarize myself with all of the functions. Joe says the iPhone will be less complicated than his phone. God I hope so!
Anyway, Christmas was great! Ethan is getting harder to surprise and I really like surprising him with the gifts he gets. Unfortunately, that usually involves some sort of lie. I don't like lying to him, but he understands that they're not hurtful lies. They're little lies so he will be surprised. He knows how much it means to me for him to be surprised. That look on his face when he is truly surprised is the best gift I can get for Christmas. This year we definitely accomplished that true surprise and it was awesome!
Ethan had asked me a couple weeks ago what my favorite perfume is. It is J'adore by Christian Dior. I thought he was just asking because he was curious. Ethan asks a LOT of questions without motive other than being curious. To my surprise on Christmas, I opened a box from him with a bottle of J'adore in it. He had saved up his own money and bought it himself.
He wanted so badly to buy this for me with his own money, I was told. That shit isn't cheap! It warmed my heart that he used the last of his money to buy me a Christmas present because HE wanted to. I was also really surprised that he remembered the name of the perfume. It's not an easy name to remember.
I hope each of you had a wonderful Christmas and have an awesome New Year!
