It was a Black Friday deal so we jumped on it and that new I-phone 11 has been sitting, unopened, in its box on my dresser ever since.
What’s the problem?
My old phone is the problem, in fact it’s got lots of them.
There are those problems that are not my fault like no one can hear me (ever)..it doesn’t always ring..the battery runs out too quickly, and somehow (years ago) I wound up with my husband’s contacts and my daughter’s music.
Then there are the problems I’ve created like too many pictures and notes and mail.
I told my husband I don’t want to import anything onto my new phone. It just seems that every time I upgrade (my phone or my laptop) I drag all the old issues with me compounding the problems..
I just want to start fresh.
He said that was a silly idea and that I should go through my old phone, delete what I don’t want and transfer the rest.
Seriously, that could take forever.
This reminds me of the new decade.
Sounds great to “start fresh” doesn’t it? But what’s good and not good about us and our lives is all mixed together, kinda like the bazillion photos I have on my dumb phone.
There’s about as much chance of me dumping my old life and running away to Tahiti to start “new” as there is of me pitching all of my pictures..so yeah..the clock is ticking not only on the decade but on the thirty days I have to turn in my I-phone 7 to Sprint.
If I don’t want to drag my existing problems forward I will have to take a deep dive into what I’ve created, separate what works from what doesn’t and make some decisions..ugh.
This is gonna take a while..
