Strange sounds on my desk…

For the past week I have been sick with sinus stuff and sore throat. My regular schedule of walking outside has been put on hold. That is how I became sick in the first place, by taking my walks while all the pollen was bursting forth with it’s new life. Enjoying the warmer weather will have to wait for now.
I recently purchased one of those cool gadgets to wear on my wrist all day and night. The gadget tells me how many steps I have taken and there is even a setting that alerts me to get up and move. I like that setting!
Since I’ve been sick the cool new gadget has been sitting on my desk looking lonely.  I decided not to wear it for a few days since I would not be doing much walking.
While reading emails and looking at websites, etc, I noticed a strange sound coming from my computer for a few days. Each time the computer made a “buzzing” sound, I jumped. I started thinking I was going to have to contact our son and give him details. He knows all things computer related.
Just about the time I decided to get help with this strange sound, I looked down and there sat my “cool new wrist gadget” buzzing and lights blinking on and off. Silly Mimi!!!!! Those strange sounds aren’t coming from the computer. Those strange sounds are from my new gadget alerting me that I need to move. 🙂
You see, I forgot to turn off notifications so the “need to move” setting is still on. 🙂
Now that I realize what has happened, I decided to put the thing back on my wrist and walk inside my house, up and down the stairs. I won’t let that thing buzz me again. I will stay ahead of the notifications. At least, that is my plan….. heehee
Have a blessed day! Get up and move… or you might receive a notification. Ah…technology.
Blessings and giggles,
