300 Minutes Gone…

on October 31, 2013

October 24, 2013

Okay peeps!  Here is a true depiction of how my life has been managed over the past three years.  My main connection to my friends and family has been through my cell phone.  Truly, I was saved because of my unlimited text and talk plan.  (Shout out to Verizon!) I would call or text those close to me all day and all night……literally!

Here at camp you are only allowed 300 phone minutes per period.  Well mine are all GONE!  Really!!  I have used all 300 minutes in ten days!  The women in the unit looked at me with confused disbelief.  What?  They hadn’t done the same thing?  Almost in chorus the said, “You have not been here two full weeks!”  For once, I had no comeback other than, “You live and you learn.”  Little J chimed in by confessing that she only has 60 minutes left and she is saving them!  I had to laugh out loud!  All I could do was crack up and think, “WOW! This is what I’m stressing over?!”

I am forced to rely solely on email.   What if that is limited too, I wondered!  I was suddenly desperate to know the email limitations, so I quickly went to read the information on the email system, TruLinks, and to my relief, I saw a familiar word…Unlimited!  Yaaay!  It will be all good, and I might survive.

So, my peeps, if you don’t get a phone call from me, you know why.  And also know, I’m good!  You better write and send your email address because I fear this won’t be the last time I run out of minutes!

So thankful for CorrLinks….

    As my mother sits in the same camp as you i am also thankful for corr-links . I make sure to check my phone daily for an email . The fact that i have to go through the whole sign in process with passwords and verification codes sucks but it is definitely worth it at the end of the day .
    Reading your blogs are very motivating and i can also tell you are a strong woman with great intentions for yourself, family and son . I’m thinking about starting my own personal diary or something just to keep or maybe even make public who knows but this just inspired me 🙂 i will be looking forward to reading more blogs from you ..
    p.s love the drawing of your dress lol
