Cutting the cord
As of this morning we no longer have a landline in our house. The phone number I've had since shortly after college is now available for adoption by someone else.
Been 30 some odd years since I got the number. I'd had a different number for a little time before that. On a party line no less LOL! But when my last summer job after graduating was over and I moved back to Moscow for full time work, I got the number I have had ever since.
Feels weird, esp when we pack up all the phones we have around the house and either sell them (the newest set we bought a couple months ago) or give to the Hope Center (the other set we've had a while). But when we really couldn't remember when we made any important outgoing calls on the land line we realized it was time to let it go.
We usually have our cells within reach. I am a total information junkie and having a little computer that links me to the world is just so nice. The hubby is the same way and we both have a ton of books loaded on our cells so we always have something to read wherever we go.
Now I just have to remember who all I need to make sure knows. Nice thing tho, is the amount of telemarketing calls should drop to next to nothing and it is a lot easier to block calls on the cells LOL!
