I've read my horoscope for the month, clipped coupons, cleaned out my work bag , planned what seeds I'll plant this month,¬† and the veggies I need to harvest this week , what I'll do with them , and still time to write my blog!¬†¬†Only because¬†my laptop crashed!!!
¬†Ugghhhhh I feel naked,¬† like I'm walking blind in traffic, like my right arm was cut off!¬† How did I get here, when did I get so dependent on this contraption.¬† It's only a¬†few¬† years old, and here I sit feeling like I can't live without it!¬† Same thing with my cell phone.¬† The other day I was 5 miles or so away from my house(on the high way for sure) and turned around because I'd left my cell phone.¬†¬† 8 years ago when I got my cell I swore I wouldn't be a slave to it, and it's the reason why I waited so long to get one.¬† Now I'm a fiend!¬† For all things electronic, my navigational system, my cell, my scanner, my home PC, my laptop, my nano...¬†¬†
Although I've lived the majority of my life without these things, they are now items I CANNOT do without.¬† This is not good.¬† These are things that dummy me down.¬† I remember in high school¬†I knew all my friends phone numbers by heart.¬† Now I know about 5¬† and that's including my home and cell number, so I really only know 3!¬† Before my Garmin and maps online , I'd buy a map,¬†and hit the road, now I panic if¬†I'm gong across¬†town without my navi!¬†¬† It makes me ill that I am SOOO dependent on these electrodes!!¬† I need help, and so do ALOT of ¬†others, texting while driving although guilty¬†of this,¬†¬†IT IS INSANE!! , calling people back to back when¬† you¬†don't answer your cell or voicemail( I don't do this!) ¬†people now a days want to¬†reach you immediately or there feeling some type of way!!! Remember the good ole days of leaving a message and waiting for someone to call you back (if the answering party remembered to deliver your message.)¬†¬†¬†
I say all this to say technology has¬†me spoiled and dummied down!¬† Although I LOVE the convenience of all these things, I long for the simple times of life!¬† So wish me luck as I work on beating my addiction!!
