Wondered where I have been for the last few days? Well, our cell phones came in, hubby had a birthday, the kids needed new clothes…
As I have said in other posts I use Outlook 2007 religiously. I keep a calendar in my purse for when I go to doctor trips, but I was having trouble making sure I got the two synced. So I was starting to double book myself. Not good.
So I decided I was going to treat myself for Christmas this year and finally get one of those smart phones that run Windows Mobile 6.1. I decided on the Moto Q. Now there are a few things about this phone I don’t like, but today’s post is about those that I do.
First off, I synced it with my computer and now my contacts, my calendar and all my tasks are in my phone. No more extra calendar!!!
So how is SOM (super organized mom) making the most of this new gadget?
So yesterday we went to the store. I pulled up calendar and walked through each day this week.
Sunday-Steak and potatoes, Monday-BLT, Tuesday-Little Smokies in BBQ sauce, Wednesday-Kids eat at church, mom and dad on own, Thursday-Lasagna, Friday-Grilled Chicken Salad, Saturday-Breakfast for dinner. I needed to get some steak, bacon, potatoes, the smokies, a lasagna and some salad stuff. (Yup, the man will only eat meat.) I was in and out of the grocery in 10 minutes. Food is ready for the week and fresh. Texted #3, who was with dad on the other side of the store, to come pick out lunch foods and #2 to go pick out some shampoo and conditioner, and we met at the designated aisle ready to check out.
I did not get Internet on the phone. I have no need to surf the web at work, or in the car. When I travel I take my laptop. And our home Internet is about the same price as putting Internet on this one phone. I like the size. I come from the days when a princess phone was small. These newer gadgets are just too small. I lose them in my purse. Not to mention the distance from my ear to my mouth is larger than that.
So what did I do with all that free time? I took a nap. Of course you say, why didn’t I think of that. Even SOM takes a Sunday afternoon nap. Remember, it’s Biblical.
