My husband got me a Mother's Day gift this year. It has come by delivery (something that always makes me giddy) and I almost do not even know how to feel about it, as it really should not have been very high on the spending priority list. I feel a little guilty, but I want to love it. I am slow to convert sometimes, wanting to hang on to my old ways: film cameras, road maps, cds, rotary phones. ;-) ;-) But he is so good to me and always encourages me to be "updated" and to try things that are of the 21st century.
I do not know how to send a text message and only barely how to receive one. I learned only this week that I could even view a picture on my cheapy cheap emergencies-only mobile phone. I struggle with the touch screen on Mike's iphone as it does not seem to sense my touch the way I think it ought to. I still refer to teachers communicating via the "blackboard." My pencil sharpener is manual and I am highly intimidated by "operations manuals." I know there is going to be a learning curve here and I shall probably be forced (for fear of breaking it) to try to use the proper feet. And, certainly, I will have to buy new bobbins and needles because they can't just make them all the same now, can they?
