I am still smart phoneless, though the dumb phone is still in operation. In fact I’ve even figured out how to add and delete contacts! I am high tech ya know. While it does not seem as though it’s always been this way, it has not been near as hard as imagined. I’m actually still enjoying being untethered, I still feel free and at peace and more engaged in whatever it is I/we are doing.

I do, however, miss my camera. That has been a reoccurring theme, and even though I feel more present in the memories than I used to, there are sometimes I really wish I could have caught the memory. The big camera is just not as easy for me to cart around, it feels awkward, though I suppose that could be mostly in my head.

The children are still annoyed I steal “their” iPad to read my books on. I am still annoyed they run the battery down to the ground every time they use it and then leave it right next to the charger, NOT PLUGGED IN! So I guess we’re even.

Unrelated note, the paperwork for the adoption looked easy, until I actually LOOKED at it. Talk about digging up every bit of information about us, I don’t even know where to find some of this stuff. Trying not to daunted, it’s partially working.
