I'm a GROWN UP!!

I've been a grown up for a very long time but NOW I have a BONA FIDE grown up PHONE!!
I have only had old fashioned flip phones in the past! NO MORE!!!

Robert went with me this morning and I chose the LG Optimus G phone.

My very first phone call!!! 
Robert called me because I needed to practice answering!!
It was not nearly as hard to get a new phone as I thought it would be.
I DID get pretty excited though! Robert has been great at helping me figure out how to use the phone and I will learn to do more cool stuff tomorrow!

Since it IS Tuesday and the movies at Starplex ARE just fifty cents - that was where Robert and I went next!

We saw After Earth! A GOOD movie but it completely wore me out!!!
I was jumping out of my skin at the action! Then my phone makes noises and that has made me jump more than once today!

While I have enjoyed the cool rainy weather - I have developed a terrible headache!
Perhaps it's because of staying up so very late the last several nights.
Or it could be I have worn myself out with all the excitement of buying a sofa and getting a new phone.
Or it COULD be the weather and the barometric pressure.

For whatever reason I did not do art this evening.
I am now turning everything off and simply go to bed!

Congratulations on your new phone. I'm sure you will figure it out soon. I have what looks like a smart phone, and does some cool things, but is really just a very good regular phone. It is good enough for me because I don't really like all the bells and whistles.

I hope you are feeling better soon. I had a headache at work today too. It must be the weather. Have a good night's sleep.

Hooray for you, Big Girl!!
Enjoy that phone and if you have any problems figuring out all the bells and whistles you can ask any 10 yr old and they'll be glad to help! Hope you feel better in the morning!!

I'm still a little girl based on that - I have one of the original Nokia dumb phones! And no plans to change it soon... (but I confess to having an iPad) Cheers

Technology can be such fun to learn, can't it? I have a regular, old fashioned land line telephone with the jack, and that is it. I admit to knowing nothing about cell phones and how they work. :) I am sure you are going to have fun learning and using your new phone!

A new phone is a lot of fun - but STRESSFUL!!

HoundDogMom said...

Oh you got one of those smarter than me phones. I continue to still figure out mine and it took me days to figure out how to answer it. BOL Have a great day!


...it's the weather! LOL --- Bud suffers sinus headaches when the pressure areas above change quickly and dramatically.

Aren't the smartphones these days the bomb? I love 'em. Just another toy I know, but my goodness, thinking that 15 years ago, we didn't even consider a cellphone, and hand land lines only. Now if I forget my phone, I turn around and go back home to get it and carry it with me at all times.

I'm enjoying the Texas rains...it's about time!!


ps....wait 'til you get into the setting of ringtones for certain family members calling. I LOVE that...fun, and when I hear a certain song [I made my own ringtones and uploaded them to the phone]...when I hear a certain song, I know right off who's calling before I even look at the photo ID.

Way too much excitement! Enjoy that phone and may the headache be gone this morning.

Linda, Yesterday, I swore I heard a frog crocking...it was the lady next to me, her phone was crocking.LOL.Too funny. Hope you are feeling better. I am going to the drs. again with a sore throat that started on Friday. Stay cool and dry. xoxo,Susie

Another great item, with which Robert was worth his weight in gold, helping you got! Oh you are so wise, to make use of his techy help. Lucky you!

I've been having head aches the last couple of late afternoons too! I think the weather is getting to us.

And I do not, not, not dooooooooooooo all, which you seem to pack into every day.

I think all, even the young, should take it more easy, in this heat. :-)))))))))

Who is irritated and grumpy, today...

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

You know, I think Robert could have an itinerary of traveling around and visiting Blogging Ladies, and helping them out, with all their techy questions!!! How about that?!?

Someone to fix and suggest and help use, all our techy questions and issues and etc.! Just give him room/and/board for a few days! -giggggggles-

Yes, I know. The heat is getting to me. ,-)

Who is irritated and grumpy, today...

Linda said...

I told Robert that and I think he was extremely flattered!! Hope he comes back to visit us OFTEN! Louis Dean told him he should start a blog - 'Ask ROBERT!!' These are two funny guys!!

Angie said...

Yay, welcome to the world of high tech cell phones! I love them but they make me angry, they are smarter than I am :)

Hope your head feels better. Rainy weather usually makes my head hurt.

Nonnie said...

Congratulations! You will figure it out and the timing is great since you have Robert there to help you! I remember thinking (way back when) that cell phones were an unnecessary and frivolous item when my DH brought them home.

Kelly said...

Congrats on your phone! Isn't it fun to get a new piece of technology? Even better when you have someone to show you how to use it! LOL! Doesn't it make you wonder how we ever lived without them?

Congrats on the new phone. Have fun with it.
