It’s been a long time coming. Six weeks ago, 46 days, to be exact, my PDA died and I’ve been waiting for July 1 to hurry up an get here so I could upgrade my phone to the new Treo 755p. As of Sunday I will be eligible for the phone upgrade credit that should make this baby a bit more affordable. I cannot wait. We will be there when the Sprint store opens at 11am.
I’ve said this before and everyone thinks I’m exaggerating, but my PDA was my external brain. I kept everything in there – phone numbers, appointments, birthdays, passwords, my check register – everything. It was a great system, life was humming along all organized and simplified, and BAM! She dies on me. Since that dark day, six weeks ago, I have missed an appointment, showed up late for another, probably forgotten somebody’s birthday (sorry), not had anyone’s phone number when I needed it, been locked out of three different websites for not knowing my password and guessing wrong too many times, and bounced a check for the first time in my life. It’s been hard! But not for much longer. Two more days… I think I can make it. Now my only decision to make is – blue or burgundy?
