Day 4 NO CELL ZONE
I wish a diet worked this quickly! Honestly, this is like stopping a habit by changing your routine. This morning, I felt much less stressed and strong, but by 10:30 a.m., I heard, “your mailbox is almost full!” I took a deep breath and easily returned the calls, again, in a nice parking place in front of a customer’s office.
Today, I was able to notice the cars entering Broadway Extension and I merged for them! How civil and how many times did I not notice before? Speaking of Broadway–the BC Clark sign- PURPLE RING again. In fact, I saw it twice today! I should talk about Valentine’s Day etiquette soon.
One thing I haven’t disclosed, I have two phones. A Blackberry and an iPhone. One business, one personal. Today, while driving, I decided I would ponder which one I liked best. The keys work faster on the Blackberry when I text, they are sleek and push easily, but the apps are so much more fun! And the iPod is so nice when going up the elevator of the Empire State Building. Right now, the jury is still out.
I heard two Lady GaGa songs- Speechless and Brown Eyes. Satellite Radio is wonderful, I was paying for it and not using it because I was talking in the car. Maybe I’ll know who the Kings of Leon are tomorrow!
I turned south on Western off Wilshire and noticed a man in a parka, waiting for the bus. He was visibly cold, I was struck by the fact I was too busy talking to ever notice him. It made me sad, but thankful for my warm car, my great job and slowing down to “feel” – whether it was bad or good.
My family has a history of hitting things when being in reverse – Big Revelation – in the parking garage today, no phone in my ear, I can back up and see where I am going before I hear BOOM!
To Ann Dagg, Investment Advisor to the Stars- thank you for telling me you had already started this same quest because you were scattered too. Keep writing in and let’s save our money for those rings! I loved the information about what the purple stone means. Note: I like the brown one too!
Tonight my college daughter called to tell me she has been reading this blog, and was surely worried I would embarrass her. But tonight, she asked me to talk about her more….so Jordan, sign the NO CELL ZONE pledge, you have every reason to do it. Love, MomBest regards,
