Hi Jilly:

Thanks for stopping by and sharing with us - much APPRECIATED!

Texting is great, I am just missing the "personal" conversations with my only child(lol).

At age 25, she stays busy but is learning to SURPRISE me, like yesterday at work - with a phone call. It was so NICE hearing her voice with her still being in Orlando, Florida and me now in Columbus, Georgia.

Hugs,
A

Great question!!! My daughter taught me to text about 7 years ago. I didn't do it alot, but now I do. My kids text me a lot. The schools are now allowing kids to text while walking through the halls, but they made the punishment stricter if they text in class.

My kids text me questions during the day. My son texts me to ask if he can go play at his friends. While we have plenty of face to face time in the evening and/or weekends, texting lets me know what they are up to during the day. The only time anyone ever texted me while we were both home was when my daughter was really sick and couldn't get out of bed and I was downstairs working on stuff, I kept my phone in my pocket and told her to text me if she needed something so she wouldn't need to come downstairs to find me.

Awesome Dianne, I would never of thought of that. That goes to prove that if used "wisely" - texting can be a HUGE help!

I honestly don't want to communicate with my phone as a phone now. Texting is brilliant!

Since I work during the day talking on the phone to people, I do NOT want to talk on the phone when I get home. Thank goodness for texting! I know it sounds horrible but during the week I only want people to call me if what they have to say is too long to text or if they are driving.

I am like that with people, too, Maria. I make everyone text me unless it's really important. I pretty much won't answer the phone unless it's a call i am expecting or need.

I am an anti-phone person, especially because I primarily work nights to do coding while the servers are quiet. When someone calls me and wakes me up mid-day I'm not very happy about it. I like email because I can answer them when I am awake.

So that all being said, to add texting to our phone would be another $10/month and we're not willing to do that. Our phone gets email. It seems redundant to add text to that as well. If it was free we might.

This may sound sad but my whole social network revolves around texting. I rarely call; just don't have time for it. When we make plans to meet somewhere, we text. When we just want to say hello, we text. When we need help with something, we text. That's what we have learned to make work for us...
