Because I’m practical that way…

Not usually one for frivolity, it should come as no surprise that I would get something for Christmas that is of a practical nature.  I’m not into jewelry or perfume, for which CGMan is eternally grateful, since he doesn’t know how to pick any of that out anyway.

One year, I gladly accepted a mixer. Oh, I wanted this mixer in the worst way. I needed this Kitchen Aid, mostly because I blew up my little hand mixer making Christmas cookies for the masses. The next year? I wanted pots and pans. It took several hours and trips to various stores to finally find the perfect set of hard anodized nonstick pots and pans to put under the Christmas tree.

We recently purchased a new faucet for the kitchen sink. I think you might have seen Phoebe helping with the installation? Anyway, I was perfectly happy with a new faucet for Christmas. I mean, it’s a really nice faucet.

What with getting the new faucet, that included installation by a professional motley crew, I was positive I didn’t need anything else. I’m blessed to have all that I do and I never want to take that for granted. But CGMan thought I might be interested in a little something that would help me stay organized.  I’m a Virgo and he knows that is a magic word for me, organized. Oh! To be orderly! I would sell one of the dogs kids to have all my s#!* together.  He suggested we take a look at an iPhone.

I was pretty sure I didn’t need an iPhone. I couldn’t see how it would help. It’s just a phone, right? I mean, I jot stuff down so I don’t forget and that has worked not at all, but in keeping with the Christmas spirit of helping my husband find the perfect gift for me, I went along to take a look.

It didn’t take much more than a glance for me to fall in love. This thing is going to keep me organized forever! I’ll never miss another appointment, or forget what I went to the grocery for. It also has a built in converter! I’ve always wanted to know how many pounds are in a stone (14lbs).   From To Do Lists, Checkbook Registers, Recipe Apps and Speed Trap Alerts, this little gadget would  totally keep me on track. And when the salesman showed me the shiny pink cover, I knew it was a match made in heaven.

I will be able to do all kinds of mindless important things with my new iPhone.

and no matter how far away he is, I’ll be able to remember my CGMan:


Oh yeah, I can make phone calls, too.

Can you see how effective I am already?

Wordless Wednesday…with some words…

I like wordless Wednesdays. It gives me a chance to show off some pictures that I have cramming up my phone. Let’s see, since you’ve alread...
