I used to sleep at night with my cell phone in my hand. 
and I used to text 8,000+ messages a month...(sadly, that number is not a typo)
now my family gets frustrated because I'm so hard to get a hold of.
i'm really glad i got over that.

P.S. I ran two miles and now I can't walk. this is progress right?

Holy freaking crap. That's a lot of text messages! :D Ha ha ha!!!

I've fallen asleep with my phone in hand, but it's because I was using it as an alarm clock! ;)

Good luck with your half marathon... you're very brave!

Kali that's amazing! I don't know if I've ever sent that many. :) I did used to be attached to my cell phone and died if I forgot it, but now I'm ok if I leave it at home for a day. ;)

I once texted not knowing it wasn't on my plan and it was outrageously expensive!! :)

Wow, you definitely have me beat, that is a lot of texting! I have always been a texter, but not 8,000 a month:) That two mile run is definite progress, you have me beat there too, I still haven't gotten back in shape after having Crue.

Haha I remember the days when your cell phone was glued to your hand. I am impressed that you ran 2 miles! I couldn't do that if my life depended on it. Seriously.

I hope you had a cellphone plan with an unlimited texting option! I've decided if you can run a half marathon, I can get my derriere out of the office each day and climb all the stairs in our new office building. Trust me, there are plenty of stairs (26 between each floor). Thanks for the example. Auntie M.

When the fiance (now hubby) was away for army training we communicated almost only on text messages. This was before the days of unlimited text plans. My dad was very understanding of my situation and only told me about a year later that I had racked up almost a $300 text bill for the month Ty was gone. What an understanding father!!

WHAT!!! 8,000+ is a lot of texts.. I used to do 2,500 and my parents would freak out! haha

I usually sleep with my phone IN my bed so that it can wake me up if someone calls in the middle of the night. Not sure why I even care so much. Oh well? I can't even run 2, so good luck!

My kids try to text me and before I get them answered back, they just call me because I take sooo long to text. I have been getting better, just like anything, the more you do it the easier it becomes....even running!

The Rowburys said...

I had the same problem. I ran up a $600 phone bill my senior year in high school. OOPPS! :)

I used to text ALL the time before I got married. All day every day; now I maybe send 20 texts a month.

Wellll if I was a youngster and not an oldster, maybe I'd know how to text in the first place. HOWEVER, in my last ward, I Visit Taught a lady whose son was the fastest texter in the whole wide world. I'm not lying. He was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. I mean it.

McKenna said...

I can see how you would be glad that you have gotten over that, I can't even imagine what your phone bill was. Eeek!

*I don't think I have sent a text message in over 6 months.

I sleep with my cell phone in my bed. But it's on silent. I love me some texting, but don't like to talk on the phone. Unless it's my mom. I talk to her everyday cuz she's too old to text. Anyway, one of my biggest pet peeves? when you've been texting someone and they call you. i always panic. they KNOW i have my phone, cuz we've been texting. i. hate. that.

i never answer my phone, my family has to call my husband in order to get a hold of me....

Jillian said...

I don't think I've ever texted more than like 400 a month... and that's including texts received too! Crazy to think about 8,000. You must be love ;)
