I have come to the realization that I am on way too many committees. At last count, I have either volunteered or asked to be on the Board of Directors, the Commissary Committee, Elementary School Logistics Committee, the After School Activity Committee, and Room-Mom for Sheridan's class (which I'm sure I was asked as punishment...). Additionally, most of these committees are currently meeting every week. On top of the committees, I also attend monthly PTA meetings, monthly elementary parent coffees, the overseas women's group, weekly bridge lessons (where I embarrass myself with my meager attempt to understand the intricacies of bidding)... and I'm even at school two afternoons a week. Somewhere in all of this I have to make time for me too!
So today I started. I am now the proud owner of an iPhone 3G. I feel so grown up.
For the past few weeks, I had been going back and forth between the iPhone and Blackberry. Thankfully, several friends allowed me the wonderful opportunities to play with them, to really check them out. Traditional Blackberry, Blackberry Storm, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, unlocked iPhone - so many choices, so much technology, the never ending research. In the end the iPhone won, and I purchased it here rather than buying an unlocked iPhone in the States. Sure I paid a little more, but I felt better knowing I could walk into the iStore here and have them help me with anything at anytime. Let's face it - it's pretty darn fabulous that it syncs with my iMac and all of my information. I invested in convenience. And who am I kidding? I wanted to be in the "in crowd"... one of the cool kids.
As I am technologically unsavvy, I'd like to at least maximize my minimal knowledge. Any of you who have iPhones, send over your tips, your advice, your thoughts...
