thought for the day

You know you’re on the computer too much when you briefly have the thought to press Undo when you mess up the folding of a blanket or want to hit Search when looking for names on your old 8th grade junior high newspaper (found while cleaning).

And as my daughter was Skyping with her friend who’s at school in Idaho, I interrupted their conversation and said, “Back in the olden days we used to have to write letters when we wanted to talk to our friends.” (Phone calls were too expensive.)

    I remember when we had to dial 0 and tell the operator what number we wanted, and then pray no one else was using the party line! Do I have you beat???? LOL I bet I do!

    Okay, we did have a party line–but no "dial 0 for the operator + the number". So you have me beat. :)

    And how lazy is it when I text my son in his room in the basement instead of going to the top of the stairs and calling down to ask him something! Sad (: Someone please tell me they have done something like that too….

    We are spoiled by technology. Sometimes I call my husband on his cell phone when I've lost him in Costco!
