I don't want to be connected 24/7 either. It's just a "me thing", works out for some but not for me. When I am on the run my focus is on who I am with and what I am doing.

The only advantage for us to get an iPhone, at the moment, is for traveling. If we need some type of information on the road, we can look it up and it will be nice to also have online access to upload coupons to scan at certain locations. This has been frustrating on the run. Here in town we would have to go home to print out a coupon then head back out, now we can just upload it on the spot to use it right then and there. Most businesses seem to be going this route, along with paper coupons, (not a real big deal but what a nice convenience to have that on us!) We also want this for the camera/video purpose to store what we want while traveling. On a road trip - laptop, camera and old phone works perfect. When flying, going by train or ship, I want to travel very lightly without a lot to drag around, I am a "one suitcase" type person when traveling this way. It is convenient to have a "3 in 1" type device. It's just something we are looking into at the moment and the timing seems about right since Wayne and I travel a few times a year. I will still take the laptop on road trips (over pack on road trips ) but cannot connect until I am somewhere. The iPhone (or something similar) will be helpful when we can't stop somewhere to access internet. As far as being connected 24/7, I agree with you, just not my interest at the moment. Information purposes while traveling, hotel, restaurants, and more will be very handy and we wish we would have had that on our last couple of vacations.

You can tell I have been really thinking this over! I hate to jump into something without making sure I have a use for it. I have not wanted any of this until our last few vacations when we had a need for it. We are still taking our time to decide on it.

I think it is important to consider everything like this !!! xo

That's pretty bad when your own grandma "out techs" you.
Thats funny Ryan!

I still need to get to the store to finish up getting stuff for Easter, dont have much left to get thankfully.

The snow we got the other day is all gone .. it was pretty while it lasted. We didnt get much snow this year. Not even enough to make a snowman. Hopefully next year will be better.

Have a great day gang.
Lucky you! I don't remember the last time I was able to say that!

Have a great day, too!
