It fits on the Palm in my Hand

The 3Rs: Research, Reading, and Receiving

So I mentioned yesterday that I was going to talk about the 3Rs. It goes back to my I Can’t Remember post from Friday when I talked about a variety of subjects, one of which was PDAs. I had research the different PDAs in the morning, mainly Palm device since My Lovely and Talented Wife could share Palm Apps and we could *uh* beam each other information. So After researching and then reading up on the different types, I typed up the post.

Unbeknownst to me, My Lovely and Talented Wife had been shopping with her parents and had looked at a few Palms, but since she didn’t know what I would like or need, she hesitated from making a purchase. That was, until she came home. After firing up her Feed Reader, she saw my post about the Palm T|X and made a decision to go out and get it, right there and then!

So as I was coming home, she was out getting my Palm. Actually, I beat her home. She did get our neighbor to try to stall me, but that didn’t work too well. I had only been home about 10 minutes when she pulled into the garage. So as the Friday evening commenced, I surprised her with flowers and she surprised me with a techno-gadget!


The 3 minute nap
Saturday, I had to take a letter to the post office because it had to be postmarked bt that day, so I took the kids. We hopped into the van and I took off with Thomas the Tank Engine playing in the DVD and we listening to the Tennessee/Florida game. I noticed that The Younger was not really watching the video, but staring off into space. With less than a mile to go, I started to see the Eyelids of Lead (no, you can’t purchase those from Mattel) starting to fall. I tried to call out to him to keep him awake.

He must have slept for about 3 minutes before we got to the post office and had to go inside to use the self-service R2-D2 unit. Surprisingly enough, the 3 minute kitten nap was enough for him. He was in a decent mood for the rest of the evening (good thing he didn’t watch that Tenn/Fla game). He definitely caught up on his sleep the next day as his nap bettered 3 and 1/2 hours!

Naps. They are so not over-rated!

    Naps! In-car DVD players! Thomas the Tank Engine! did you ever think before you had kids just how thankful you would be for these things? Pre-kids I used to be SO judgmental of particularly number 2 – that was before roadtrips with kids whining “are we there yet” before you’ve even gone up the drive! The dulcet tones of Ringo Starr / Alec Baldwin have accompanies many a trip of ours.. and naps are such a fond memory…

    LOL ~ ok, I require a bit more than 3 minutes. 🙂

    I can’t remember if one of your readers recommended it here, but there’s a new book out that got 4 stars from People magazine. It’s called Inside Asperger’s: One Man’s Tale Look Me In the Eye by John Elder Robison.

    Perhaps you should take a look at it?

    Naps – I love a good afternoon nap! 🙂

    That is so cool you and your wife suprised each other with gifts…I should give you my husbands cell phone number. He could use a few pointers. I’ve been asking for a palm over over a year now. LOL

    Naps are good. I have slipped into a bad habit recently. I have been sleeping 30-45 minutes for my naps. I used to shoot for 10-20 minutes. I guess I just have too much time on my hands these days.

    That is a nice little Palm. I am using the first generation of that style, the Tungston|E. It still serves me well.
