The Good: My Christmas Present came early. On purpose. I’ve been wanting an iPhone for the longest time. I’ll admit it – I envied all my friends who had one. I’m not a person who needs the newest and best in the tech/electronic world. But the iPhone? That’s another story. I patiently waited until I qualified for an upgrade, which just so happened to coincide with the Christmas season.
I validated this particular Christmas present wish to my husband by saying that (a) I tend to be on the road a lot (how valuable it would be!) (b) I could take cool photos when I didn’t have my camera on hand (for the blog!) (c) it has all sorts of Apps that are lifesavers (and free!) (d) it has much better reception that my other cell phone (it does!) (e) I can get a GPS App (safety when driving alone!)
I took advantage of the new iPhone 4S coming out and got the previous model, the iPhone 4. Much, much less money. I’m totally in love with it. I chose the white version….so pretty!
The Bad: We had very heavy rains yesterday and last night. Our roof started leaking again. It’s either the chimney flashing or some problem with a shingle or two. Hurricane Irene inflicted some sort of damage up there. We’ll have to have someone take a look at it. Cross your fingers that it’s only a minor repair, please?
The Ugly: While dealing with the leaky roof at 1:00 am, I grabbed my pretty cane-back chair (from the studio,) and proceeded to step up on the seat. The chair fell over and I stepped right through the cane. Yep. I was too tired to cry. I think I can patch it with some glue, but it will never look as pretty as it did.
That was my favorite chair. Ever.
I took the photo with the neat Hipstamatic App on the iPhone. This shot provides a little peek into our lives this morning. The lint brush is out because Scout sheds profusely. The box the iPhone came in is still on the coffee table. Those aqua bins are full of Christmas decorations, and Scout is looking toward the stairs because she thinks she heard her dad getting up. False alarm. She’s now back to her floor position.
I’m going on very little sleep but the sun has just come out. That helps.
