Disconnect

I left my phone at home today by accident. As a result, I've caught myself looking for my phone to check the time and for messages at least 3 times today. It's a weird experience to realize how dependent I am on that device. After walking across campus and noticing the various students who had headphones in their ears or a phone in their hands I kind of felt... dirty.

It was like I was watching people's secret lives, right there in front of me. Normally I'm in the cocoon of my own personal tech bubble, and thus able to ignore people in general. But I felt like a voyeur - I was on the outside, looking in and nobody knew it.

All because I left my phone at home.

Little Things

So, I'm laying here next to my sleeping Geekheart, listening to the rain come down like crazy. I went to sleep around 9 with my wife, and then I woke up at 10. So I've just been plinking around on here, listening to her breathe.

This morning I woke up and my left hand felt extremely naked and vulnerable. My wedding ring was gone and I couldn't find it anywhere. It wasn't in the bed, on the floor, on the bathroom counter where I leave it to take a shower... glumly I pulled my CTR ring out of my desk drawer - I may not be able to wear my wedding ring, but at least I can wear a ring on my wedding finger.

I was running late already, but I decided I should try and get us all to pray. So down we knelt, and under a piece of paper lay my ring! Elatedly I put it on, with the remembrance that last night I gave my wife a massage and took my ring off to keep it from getting all lotion-y. If we hadn't had family prayer, I may not have found my ring yet. I'll let you judge for yourself, but to me it was an affirmation that family prayer (and prayer in general) is a good thing (tm).

I love my wife.
