Music, Apps, and a walk in the woods...

I have a confession to make.. I love gadgets. Specifically electronic, computer, or phone gadgets. I don't know why, or when it started.. but today proved to me that I DO need a gadgets anonymous support group.
I have this Ipod touch that I love. Well,.. it stopped working! Talk about withdrawals! ughhh!  I really did feel lost without it I have all my music, photos, videos,  etc. on it. I can access my email, FB, Twitter, etc. .All my apps. that keep me connected..
My reaction to the loss of this particular gadget got me thinkiing...although the withdrawal has been painful at times, it has reminded me of the more simple days, and made me wonder where I lost touch with them. What did we do without all these things?- How about finish that book we started months ago? Pull out a board game, or deck of cards. Go for a walk. Have an actual conversation... Slow life down a little.
I admit I have forgotten some of these treasures of days gone, I have picked up that book I started, looked thru some new recipes, gone for a few longer walks...and have had some conversations. It's not so bad, ....all while waiting for the return of my Ipod.
I will admit..While I  am still anxiously awaiting my Ipod to return, it's good to know that I can still function without all the gadgets of this electronic age.

You are just TOOO funny! I'm so glad to know that you'll survive the withdrawals... It is probably a lesson we ALL need!
