You all know the Youngest Offspring has been the DJ in my car for quite some time.
Y’all know I now have iTunes on my computer and phone because the Youngest Offspring helped me in desperate times.
Did you know I casually commented to the Oldest Offspring that I would love to have earphones so I could listen to music on my phone while easily walking from room to room or (can’t bring computer and speakers) walking the beast?
Well, I have had headphones before, ear buds, headphones…. I have had many. Quite a few. They all seemed to fall into the hands of offspring who accused siblings of stealing theirs.
It’s, the plight of a mother who inevitably sacrifices her own desires for her offspring. 😐😇
Anyway, it happened. One day the Oldest Offspring came in the house and casually said, “here, Mom.”
They are wonderful, they have labeled buds – one left, one right. They apparently have the ability to push something and turn them off or to answer the phone, but I don’t get that yet. Still, I can manage to pull the phone out of my back pocket to silence the music when the world demands my attention.
Today I accomplished great things. I got a lot cleaned and I danced and lived happily one moment into the next.
I listened to (and downloaded) whatever artist came to my mind…. Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, Kid Rock, Queen, and Merle Haggard. I heard songs I don’t think I ever heard before and I loved it.
Now, because it’s been pouring from the skies all day, I am enjoying my wine and a book. My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. I wasn’t keen on reading an historical fiction book (not much on history) but this book basically (in my opinion) makes a mockery of the history in such a way that I just might have to research the real events.
Thankfully I have Google.
Why didn’t we have all this modern technology in the golden days?
I had a great day, how about you?
