Yes, but she was asking you & I didn't want to be rude

I was going to tell you that I did the same thing as you! I waited until my phone was dying to get a smartphone. It was over 2.5 years old, and I knew I had an upgrade coming. It started shorting out, dropping calls, the screen would go blank, it would freeze, etc...drove me nuts! And I knew we were moving, and wanted something reliable for the road...and with GPS.
I'll never regret it!

Well the Carrots have been peeled and sliced. Eggs have been boiled and peeled. Plus the celery and onion have been diced and are ready for the macaroni salad. Now I'm off to get some thing for lunch.

Have any of you watched the Jodi Arias trial that is seemingly on every channel on the 24 hour news cycles? wow how weird but once you starrrt watching its really sad and just weird! this al just like the Casey Anthony trial in a lot of ways. I have to limit myself to crap like that way too negative...okay have a good night all!!
I've watched bits & pieces of it. She is crazy :/ And I don't think she's criminally insane, just arrogant & self-entitled. She's lied so many times, that I don't even think she remembers the truth anymore. I hope Travis gets justice.

That's so nice of you to get the house all nice & clean for Brandi. Hope her first week back went well!

Happy Easter to you all!! Hugs to Snowball & Kylie (sp.?)!!

I am "Home Alone" again, but with the upcoming weekend, that won't last long. We had homemade spaghetti last night and are having fish sandwiches tonight. I am not sure what we will have tomorrow, but it will be butterfied leg of lamb for Easter. We will have smashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, regular salad, jello salad, and then Mississippi Mud Cake for dessert. The smashed potatoes are red potatoes cooked whole either stove-top or in the oven, then smashed down individually, sprinkled with butter and seasoning (parmesan, Emeril's original seasoning, rosemary, and other to-taste seasonings), and baked to a golden brown. It makes me hungry just typing this, LOL! I am glad my family loves good food! Oh, yeah, I almost forgot: homemade refrigerator rolls. Those are always a must!
I hope that your pain is subsiding!
Thinking of you!! <3 💜💖

You're making me hungry, the Easter meal sounds amazing!!

You would never be rude, either of you. We are here for each other! I, too, waited until my phone died. It was almost five years old!!! Taking pictures was as hi-tech as it got! Even though we have GPS in the car, having it on the phone is great when you are walking around a city and want to find a particular spot. I really appreciate the info from BOTH of you!

I was going to tell you that I did the same thing as you! I waited until my phone was dying to get a smartphone. It was over 2.5 years old, and I knew I had an upgrade coming.

Good afternoon, MMC

TGIF, right?!

I am just doing some housework, Adrian's friend Nate is coming tomorrow for the weekend. He is excited to see him, well we both are! We haven't seen him since our wedding, which will be 5 years this August. Nate is moving to Colorado soon, so it may be another few years before we see him again.

Tonight, we are going to go out for dinner to celebrate my birthday. We had to put it off because life has just been busy! But, I'm in the mood for Mexican tonight, and the place we are going to has great seafood. It should be a nice time!

What are your plans?

Well, whatever they are, I hope YOU have a wonderful evening!!

We have GPS in my new car, but it's a few years old, and so expensive to update. That was another reason Adrian felt ok about spending a little extra money on our IPhones, because of the current GPS. It really comes in handy being in a new town! Plus, with my real estate, I'll need it! Adrian also has to travel a lot for work, so it really helps him too. He bought a GPS just for that @ 4 years ago, and it's so outdated, and so many roads aren't even on it, so he doesn't get very much use out of it anymore. He just can't justify the updates, because they actually are more expensive than buying a new one. Thank God for our IPhones!!!
