I think it has been three weeks since the flip phone. I have enjoyed my iPhone 4s more than I ever thought I would. I thought I would care about being connected, socially, throughout the day. That has been great. I can see what is going on and don't have to get the run down from Eric when I get home. I think what I like even more is being able to take and post pictures of any and everything. I take pictures of just about anything.

I take pictures of the kids. Of the clouds. Of my office. Of my pets. My friends. Anything. I LOVE it. I have taken more pictures of myself than I really care to admit. Mostly I delete them. Every now and again I will e-mail them to my husband. I have sent a couple of the younger kids to my older kids. Just being able to do it amazing. I can't believe how long I have gone without this possibility.

I really enjoyed taking pictures on Thanksgiving. I think as I get more used to having it on hand, I will do more. I hope to get a bit creative with it as well. We shall see...

What a week

I left work early Monday afternoon to go to urgent care. My asthma has been bugging me and didn't seem to be getting any better so I thought I better go in.

When I arrived I was told it would be an hour and a half wait. I knew it wouldn't. I waited about 2 minutes, maybe! Anyway, a breathing treatment, steroids and a couple inhalers later, I left. With two days off work!

Luckily I was able to reach someone that night. I hate calling in the morning. Of course I hardly slept. I slept about 5 hours that night. About 5 hours the next night.

I went to work on Thursday because we were having a holiday party. I didn't really enjoy myself as I was not still feeling up to it yet. I left early this morning. I was crying and shaky. I hate these meds after a few days. today is my last dose so I am hoping to be back to normal by Sunday. I hope so before I drive my family crazy!
