I'm a happy girl.
So very happy happy!
Look what came today ...
Yes, I hinted at this here, but it was a looooooooong time actually getting the real deal in my hands.
First, I had to convince Wonderhubby that this, indeed, was my heart's desire for Mother's Day.
Then, we had to find one.
It seems that a new fancy-shmancy version is coming (with more bells and whistles than I require), so the Apple stores have conveniently ceased to have the "old" ones on hand. And the AT&T stores "only" had the bigger, more expensive, not-in-the-budget version.
Unhappiness, thy name is Janet.
Meanwhile, Wonderhubby took off for middle America to attend an elevator installation training school (yes, it had its ups and downs). While he was gone, he found the phone at an Apple store in the Midwest, where apparently the demand hasn't been nearly as strong.
Also while he was gone, I found it online at the wireless carrier store with free two-day shipping, and we agreed I should go ahead and order it, rather than WH worrying about transporting it home on airplanes and such.
And so I made it so.
AT&T, in its infinite wisdom, slightly neglected to actually SHIP the damned thing for ... wait for it ... a week!
So I waited.
And tracked it by website and email.
And watched while they sent it in one direction and then in another completely opposite way.
And tracked its very, very slow progress across my fair city.
IT FINALLY CAME!!!
I have been petting it ever since.
