Well NEVER again. During the time I was away from my phone one of my family members had a medical emergency and several members of my family were trying to reach me both via my cell phone and work phone. The additional stress they were caused by not being able to reach me was unnecessary. If I had just had my phone on me I would have answered and saved them the extra thirty minutes of worry. . .
Fortunately I did get their messages within a fairly short amount of time and was able to leave work to be with my family.
So next time someone gives me a hard time for being "glued" to my phone I'll just ignore them! I know that we all need breaks from calls, texts, emails, FB and twitter but I also know the importance of being able to reach people during an emergency.
All is ok now. Thank God.
(Sorry for the vagueness of what happen. But since it isn't about me it really isn't my right to share it here. Some things are just personal).
Oh and to make myself feel better I did a little retail therapy last night. . .
