Things I do for Me Monday

July 7, 2009 Things I do for Me 16

I’m back……….I didn’t do my meme last week, and perhaps not the week before. Perhaps with summer here I don’t feel like I do enough for me, I mean I’m sure I do things, but I feel like my time is consumed with people under 16 and their happiness. I’m not complaining……..much……..but they can be demanding little urchins!

So this week’s “thing” is expensive, and yet by golly I think I deserve it! I’ve only had it 5 days and have had so much pleasure from this new toy…….I can’t even describe it. Ok, honestly I hope you all don’t think I’m going to review some new vibrator or something, I mean a girl can do what ever she likes, but I’m not really the type to boast or brag or review that type of product!!!!

So…………look what I bought myself last Thursday!


Yes I got an iphone…………and I even got the new iphone 3G S………….I’m now thinking I’m all that and a bag of chips!

Seriously, I’ve been thinking about this for a while. I’ve had a cell phone since 1996, my first one was huge and weighed about 3 pounds! In the past 13 years I’ve had 5 phones, maybe 6, and I’ve never lost one, broken one, dropped it in a toilet etc………..and one other thing, everytime I was eligible for free upgrade, I got a new free phone. Never paid for one, always got a free one, sometimes I had to wait to get one I wanted, but I went free. My daughters are on their 3rd phones, and I finally bought them phones with cool keyboards earlier this year, because you know speed texting might be an Olympic sport soon………and well Adrienne could win the GOLD!
So back to me, I deserve this phone right? I deserve to look cool and hip at nearly 50 right? I deserve to be even more in touch with my email, facebook, twitter and blog……….right? I never had an ipod of my own, so now I’m cool with my own music too.
I love my new toy…………and it’s the big thing I did for me this past week!
What about you?
BTW, the next things I do for me are going to have to be free or cheap!

    Cool! My husband always tries to keep me updated with fun technology. He is a geek squad kind of guy, not geeky at all but really interested in electronics and always researching cool new stuff. He got me a new MacBook Pro for my birthday and it came with a free ipod touch. I am having lots of fun my new toys too!

    Yay!!! I am so happy for you!! Don’t you LOVE IT??? I love mine too but you already know that!!

    Well check you out!!! Enjoy it, Anita – sounds like you really deserve this indulgence!

    My indulgences have taken a back seat to the girls this summer, too. It seems like someone always needs something, or needs to be somewhere…

    Anita, Repeat after me: “50 is ultra cool, in and of itself.” This should be your mantra as you count down the weeks you have remaining until you leave the runway of the first 49 years and take off into the clear blue sky. The phone sounds so cool. I’ve never had a cell phone. Chef Stu has one and I can use the feature where you push the actual number keys to dial a number? Can’t even speed dial on the darn thing. And, yes, I’m proud to be a weirdo. 🙂 I did get 2 new additions to my antique phone collection last month though…I’m not just old school, I’m ancient school. 🙂

    Anita, I’m so excited for you! And I expect some reporting on the care and use of your iPhone. I could have written most of today’s post. My next phone is going to be an iPhone. I seriously need to have email access in my pocket as a realtor and I have resisted but my next upgrade (I have always gotten free phones, too, except the last one did cost a little) is going to be the latest iPhone. I think I have another couple months before my upgrade so I’m waiting to hear what you think of your new toy!

    Anita, I would love to know what the iphone does that is better than other past phones you have had. I am kind of high-end ignorant when it comes to cell phones. Please let me know some time what the iphone’s unique qualities are as I might want one myself next phone upgrade around 🙂

    Nice! I spent the entire week preparing for my first farmers market this saturday. I’m tired and sore. But hopeful. lol

    boo.. I’m jealous! I want one! (stomping off now with a huge pout and arms crossed angrily.)

    Of course you deserve it! And I’m glad for you. Now, how much fun can one woman have with an iphone? I assume you’ll let us know!

    Congratulations on your new phone! I’m so not a tech/gadget person but the rest of my family sure is. They get new phones the minute it’s time for the free upgrade. I did give in a few months ago and get a new, updated phone…and I love it! I’m texting like the pros now!

    One thing I do for myself is go walking. I walk and walk. It’s a great way to clear your head and solve the problems of the world. I usually go about 8-8:30pm, it’s a good way to end the day and I avoid the heat of day.

    Good for you! You deserve it. A friend of mine has one (not sure if it’s the upgraded one like yours) but she loves it. She has all kinds of fun apps. My boys got Ipod touches for xmas and they love them. They play with them all the time.

    I have a blackberry, the small one and I love it but I may have to try one of these next!

    I’m happy for you, you deserve it!
