Thanks to my friend, Jan, over at Jan’s Sushi Bar, I’ve decided to give this here posting every day thing a try, y’all.
It’s called NaBloPoMo,and I can’t believe how long it just took me to write that. Stands for “National Blog Posting Month”. You post something every day for a month.
The theme for the month is “Tomorrow.”
Speaking of how things change, back when my boys were teenagers, it was an exciting day when the parents got a cell phone. I remember when they were called “car phones” because that’s what they were – a phone for your car. We never dreamed of being able to afford one for our kids. When did this luxury become a necessity for teenagers? I wouldn’t have ever imagined, back then, that our world would be like it is today.
We have two teenagers visiting in our house this month. They eat, and text while they are eating. They sleep, and upon waking up, they immediately check for text messages. They text during watching TV, riding rollercoasters and talking to each other. My stepdaughter can look me in the eye, carry on a complete conversation, while all the while she is texting what seems like an entire novel with her right thumb.
It amazes me, y’all. It really does.
