Kevin decided to go and get us each a new phone. Our phones that we've had for the last two years have ceased to hold a charge for very long.
This is the one he got us
I keep looking at it and I feel like I'm stuck in the middle ages, while everything around me is advancing. I can't keep up with what is out there. It is so bizarre to be touching a screen like there are buttons on it, when there is nothing there but pictures. It's pretty neat, though, that you can turn it sideways and it is a camera, and a video camera, and it can be a tv, and a music player. Not that I'll ever use those things, but it's neat.
Yesterday I went in for a physical. I hate being poked at. They gave me my flu shot and now my arm feels like it's going to fall off. And it's all itchy and achy and rashy (I know that's not a word) looking. I was a little leery to get it, but I decided that it would be better than possibly getting as sick as I did last year. Tomorrow I get to go for an ultra sound of my liver and kidneys because my bilirubin is a bit high on my last blood work. Good news though is that my cholesterol is down, and my thyroid is evened out.
Over the last month or so Kevin and I have discussed at length my going back to school. Or at least doing distance learning. I'd like to get my Associates, but for now I decided to do a course in writing. I've always loved to write, so I figured why not do something I like to start. The first few lesson courses came last week and I've already done my first exam (and got %100) which I was dreading, but studied hard for. I've always hated testing because I could never really retain information. I hated school. I hated studying. But with time and age, I've come to enjoy it more. It's a good thing that we're never too old to go back to school.
