Text Maniac

My relationship with my daughter has changed
since getting my iPhone, I'm a bit of a text maniac.

Yet I can still share my motherly pearls of wisdom with her.

I thought I'd start showing you some of the interesting text
messages that pass between us.

This one occured after she injured her back.

My texts are the ones in blue.

Texting! I can type and I can type well. But with texting? I can pick up the phone and even dial with a rotary dial if I hat one the long distance number and have a conversation before I can get the damn text typed out on my phone. Well - that is if ONLY the other end of the conversation would PICK UP THE PHONE AND ANSWER IT. Sadly, neither of my college educated children and their spouses
know how to use them thar' telephone contraptions. :)

I love texting, however I don't have an iphone or a smart phone, so I do it the old fashion way, one letter at a time,,,,tap tap tap tap. But my darn fingers are so big that sometimes I invent new words, I'm smart that way!

what did we do without these new devices, I have never texted, they are not for the visually impaired, ha ha, too small!!!

I rarely actually "SPEAK" with my family anymore. I love it, and I hate it!!!
Thinking of you.

How did I miss this? Your texts are sermons to live by and I'm sure your daughter will be extremely grateful. Either that or get a new phone number

LOL love this text between you and your daughter.. You're such a good mom.. As for texting.. I avoided it as much as I could and finally I gave in and got myself a smart phone in the beginning of the year because my nieces and nephews were always complaining they couldn't text me.. now it's gotten where everyone texts, I have to shut my sound off on my phone at night and I wonder if the art of talk is going to be lost as the the art of letter writing has been lost..

I'm not fond of texting. Why text if you can call? Right? I only text when needed. I'm lazy with it.
