But Sunday, Ricky & I pulled out of the drive way & got to the end of our road & I remembered... NOOOO!!!! I forgot my phone again!
You think, "Its just the end of your road, go back"... no. Our road isn't just a little road. Its 2 miles of hills ... & for the most part, whenever Ricky & I are going down the road, we're usually late anyways. So needless to say, I ventured out on another day & forgot my phone... again....
I swear, I'm going senile...
I don't know how many times during the day I said, "I need my phone"... Here were some of the things I missed with my cell phone nicely tucked on a charger next to my bed.
* Missed a picture with my Instagram buddy!
I have a friend who used to go to my church & this Sunday we visited her church... & she was singing on stage!! So I missed taking her picture as a SUPER STAR, plus, she's on Instagram & she always talks about how much I post on there so it would have been the perfect moment to take a picture of the two of us together!!! Moment missed.
We did take advantage of talking all about health eating & nutrition... this lady is on top of her game.. in every area of her life!
* Missed a picture of Ricky with an embarrassing bag!!!
We ran over to the mall & he went into Hollister. He came out with some jeans & a shirt & they put all his new fashions in a bag... with a nearly naked man... on both sides of the bag. He refused to carry it. I just laughed & told him he better be lucky I forgot my phone, because that picture would have been up everywhere...
Ricky gets slightly embarrassed over the smallest things. I would have taken a picture of me acting like I was flirting with the guy... we're so different.

... making it look like he had on no pants! haha!
* Missed a picture of amazing trained dogs!!!
We had to go to Pet Smart to pick up Bruno from being groomed & they had a training class going on. The most beautiful dogs - all lined up in a row, laying down, minding so well... it would have been a picture that would make me smile. I love dogs. I also could have gotten a picture of their reaction when I said, "Watch out - we'll be bringing our little hellion through here messing you all up in a minute" ... which embarrassed Ricky that I said that in front of a dozen strangers.
(For the record, Ricky carried Bruno out the other side so he couldn't disturb these good dogs... )
* I couldn't figure up math!!!
I'm sorry - I know I do accounting Monday - Friday but I'm awful with math in my head. Please make note of the comment about me going senile. But I rely so much on my calculator on my phone. Sunday, I was in a panic... 4+4 is WHAT???!?!?! Help me!!!
* I didn't have my shopping list for Target!!!
Yes - I keep a list of things I need to remember to pick up at Target every week... & then still usually forget it & have to go back to Target the next week.
* I didn't have my Target Cartwheel app!!!
Why do I feel so screwed over when I don't get my 5% off dog bones????
* Have to stick together!!!
Ricky & I tend to get into Target & see each other at the door & then kiss each other buy & we're off. He has his clearance tag route, I have my route - which usually winds through the fitness clothes, house ware goodies & make up & hair stuff... where Ricky could care less to go. But with phones, its easy to find each other or tell each other to "come here -you have to see this"... with no phone, we had to stick together. What torture! I had to get stuck looking at Bluetooth wireless speakers... Ricky had to get stuck with me trying on reading glasses. This is marriage before cell phones?
* Starbucks app!
I about panicked when I wanted to stop at Starbucks & I didn't have my phone. What do I do? WHAT DO I DO?????? I totally forgot I had my actual gold card IN my wallet. Real cards still exist? I'm used to just scanning my phone. & its like I forgot Starbucks takes actual cash if need be.
* My Fitness Pal
We stopped for Panera at breakfast (mmm... steel cut oats with pecans?... the best!) & then we had stopped for lunch. & all this time, I was panicking wondering what my calories were for the day. And how am I going to track my water I drink for the day?!?!!?

* Picture of Starbucks & Panera food & drink
... because why not... is the cool thing to do...
* My Notepad
I'm going senile... did I mention that? Anyways, I have an app that takes notes... & mercy, I use that more then I care to admit. I think of things I want to talk about on my blog, or something I need to do later at home & usually, I'll forget 10 minutes later. So I pull out my notepad app & type it in & VIOLA - memory maker! I kept thinking, "don't think of any ideas" because I knew it wouldn't matter anyways.
In the end, we got home about 4:00 & I ran into my room, took my phone off the charger & hugged it...
I never want to go through another day of missed opportunities again....
