Happy New Year! My “non-resolution” resolution is to find a way to use my ereader in the tub.

Hi friends,

Happy New Year! I made it through the holidays. The Boy scored big (as usual) for Christmas and I got a new smartphone…the mother of all smartphones…a new iPhone 4S. I love it, as I knew I would. The learning curve is the steepest I ever experienced with a smartphone. I am amazed how fast I learned to use it. I consider myself fairly tech savvy and my new phone is making me even more addicted to technology. Oh well, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

January means CES time. Fortunately and unfortunately, I do not need to attend for my job. Fortunately, because I don’t have to attend meeting after meeting and navigate the Vegas hotel casino mazes. Unfortunately, because I do not get to see all the cool new tech toys. Baby Daddy is attending so he will fill me in. we’re going to miss him but we will talk to him with FaceTime. The Boy loves FaceTime. He thinks he can go through the phone. He tries to hug people through the phone. Soooo cute!

January also brings New Year’s resolutions to mind. I do not make New Year’s resolutions. I don’t like planning to improve myself but I try to do it all the time (Wow, that sounds so pretentious. I'm far from perfect is all). Sometimes I fail, sometimes I succeed but I learned to relish the small victories.  Like this morning. Baby Daddy and I had a date last night and The Boy had a sleepover at my in-laws. I slept in until 10:30 and started my day with a long soak in the tub. Big wins! Now if only I could find a waterproof cover for my ereader so I don’t have to put it in a Ziploc bag to be able to read in the tub. Ah ha! That’s my “non-resolution” resolution. I resolve to find a way to use my ereader in the tub while keeping it dry.

The lengths I will go to read in the tub...
