It holds up to 240 songs. We've sure come a long way since the walkman! My first download was some Indigo Girls and then Dan added a bunch of songs from his library: Johnny Cash, Blondie, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Tom Petty. I still need to go through and edit what I do and don't want, add some songs from my CD collection, and then venture to the iTunes store and download some songs off the internet. I feel so cool! Lily is fascinated with the iPod "Aww, it's so cute!" She's a big fan of the "Baby iPod".
I took the iPod with me while we were driving around doing errands yesterday. I put a kid CD on the car stereo for Lily and then I hooked myself up to the iPod and rocked out! Remember how we used to make mix tapes in the old days? Well, this is the ultimate mix right at your fingertips! I love the small size, cool color, and smooth surface. As I was driving I kept running my thumb around the smooth circle control panel in new electronic bliss (yes, Bin, I only had one hand on the wheel- shocking I know!)
Now I just have to start wearing my iPod around with the ear buds constantly attached and I'll be as cool as all the teenagers! Speaking of teenagers, I did a photo shoot of the Young Women in my old ward a couple weeks ago. I miss them so much! They have grown in number from 13 to 20! It's a gaggle of girls!
I miss the energy and spunk of all the girls and the friendship of the leaders Kris, Jeanette, Ranae, and Kim. Leaving the YW was the hardest thing about moving.
Speaking of callings, I have a new one and it's proof that God has a sense of humor. You may recall my post from May 6th where I talked about the sheer joy I felt when substituting Lily's primary class at church. Well, I should have known not to say anything because I got called into the bishop's office a couple Sundays ago to ask if I would serve in a new calling. Yep, you guessed it, I am now the proud teacher of Lily's CTR 5B class. I've managed to weasel out of teaching the first two weeks (I was sick one week and the girls were sick the next week.) But I'm going to have to dive in and brave the chit-lins. I'll have to consult with my doctor about upping my Prozac dosage.
Here's a funny for the day. I've emailed it to some of you, but I thought it was worth putting on the blog as well.
