I agree that there is comfort in being able to reach your kids, anybody for that matter, at any time but I also don't like the fact that you can be found wherever you are! My kids will call with the littlest things that don't need my attention right then, just to call. And I hate seeing people walking around stores, in restaurants with them. There is less small talk with strangers because of cell phones, no polite hellos...everyone is on phones and don't even notice you.


I like having a cell phone for all the above reasons: mostly because I feel safer knowing that if anything happens help is just a phone call away. We went without a home phone line for about 6 years until I started doing daycare because we just didn't need one. Now that I am home all the time, I rarely get a call on my cell phone and could probably do away with it, except it's nice to use it when I'm picking Jim up from work to let him know I'm in the parking lot!

I love the convenience of my cell phone. And for several years, they were our only phones (no land line). Mark & I got ours at the same time, a few months before we were married. I often wonder how I made it through all of my single years driving back and forth from Cokato (where I lived) to work, in the cities, without one! Or before that, when I lived in the cities and didn't have one! I couldn't live without one anymore. :) But it is frustrating when people are talking really loud in public, on them. But I suppose it's a small price to pay... :)

whoa - I read my blogs in google reader and I thought this was Eileen's post, and I was thinking...wow...that's her wordiest post yet. LOL Then I clicked on it to comment and it brought me to your blog. It took me a second. anyway, just switching gears in my head here

The oddest thing that I ever saw was a couple out to eat at a restaurant and they were both talking on their cell phones. Like, the whole time. Now, Greg and I only go out to eat like once every 5 years, so this completely boggled my mind.


I'm going to stop lurking to comment on this one! I love cell phones. But that's probably because I make a living selling them... And still, I do want to tell people who come in having a fit because their cell phone isn't working- don't you remember not having a cell phone? It wasn't the end of the world then, it won't be now!

Hello & Welcome To My World

  • My name is Judy and I'm the owner of this blog. Thank You for visiting.
    I'm a...Wife...Mom of 11...Grandma to many...Homemaker and Blogger of Finnish descent...living in a log cabin here at Gentle Hearth Farm.
    I'm originally from Northeast Illinois, and my husband & I now live on 20 acres in Southwest Wisconsin up on a ridge in the Ocooch Mountains, 10 miles from the nearest town. My husband and I are empty nesters trying to figure out life after kids.
    I blog, knit, quilt, bake/cook and take pictures of just about anything.
    There is so much that I want to do, but there is just not enough time in the day to do everything, so I have to pick and choose, and I try to live each day in the present, life is so much nicer if you do.
