Oh the Times They Are A-Changin'!

I did it. I finally did it. Yesterday I joined the ranks of the Crack um uh, Blackberry users. Well "users" is a term I have to use loosely, because I'm not sure I could even make a phone call on it yet without reading the instruction book.
My children gave me a hard time for years because I stubbornly held on to my brick of a cell phone, just because I KNEW HOW TO WORK IT! That's the thing, I have so much technology I have to keep up with in my life and in my work, one more thing was more than I could handle!
I still don't know how to work the remotes for the television, but that's because other than a couple select programs, I don't watch television, so I don't need to really know it. And besides, that's why I have Jim! HE knows how to work the remotes for the TV.
For me though, being in touch with our couples and being accessible and reachable is really important. I want to be able to give them immediate feedback when they email me. So now I have a Blackberry.
So if you email me in the next couple days, and you get back something unintelligible that says it was "sent from a Blackberry" now you'll know that it was me, just trying to figure the darn thing out!
The salesman at AT&T said that I would hate it for the first few days--he was definitely right about that! But he says after a week I will feel better about it and after a couple months, I will love it. I am waiting patiently for the love. Argh!

I had a Blackberry for work, and decided recently to stay home with my kids and work from home on my own business. So today was my first day in months without it. I thought I wouldn't miss it, but I keep thinking I need to "check my purse" for e-mails on my Blackberry....then I realize that all I have is my little unassuming cell phone. I've been hearing imaginary buzzing all day, the sound it made when I got an e-mail. I feel slightly naked, lol!!

I'm looking forward to visiting Aberdeen in August! My brother is getting married there in August, and I've heard that he has had such great customer service from you (especially since he's all the way in Hong Kong). Love your website!
