The 21st Century

I've finally decided to join the 21st century.  Thursday morning I discontinued my home phone and now will only be reachable via cell phone.  I didn't know how I was going to feel without having a land line, but it's settling in.  I think I was more attached to the number (763-757-5388) than I was to the phone.

I have a "thing" for double eights.  They follow me everywhere.  My phone number in Heights had double 8's (1488), it's part of my employee number at the dental office, among other things.

I made the decision a couple months ago, when week after week, the only numbers on my caller ID were telemarketers.  The majority of people that I actually know call my cell phone.  And only 2 days in, I am savoring the silence.  No phone ringing every hour on the hour.  No telemarketers.  Sweet!!!
