Look At My New Toy!

A while back, I noticed that some of my Kenny Chesney songs on our shared ipod were gone. I asked Bruce about this since he is the one who takes care of the technology in our household and he wasn't sure why the songs would have disappeared. His only explanation was that maybe he had downloaded too much other stuff and that it had "bumped" some older stuff off. Who knows. Well, then I kinda forgot about it. Then a couple of weeks ago, I asked him if we could download some of the podcasts from Be Our Guest Podcast that I like to listen to onto our ipod. That way when (if) I walk, maybe I could listen to the shows during that time. He said that we could try to do that. Then again, I kinda forgot about it.
Thursday night, he came and sat next to me on the couch while I was grading papers. He told me that he had a "gift" for me in his pocket. I thought "yeah, whatever!" but I played along. Well, in his pocket was this brand new ipod, just for me! And.....it was loaded with all 59 (at the time) podcasts I had requested plus over 60 Kenny Chesney songs! I was very surprised and very happy! I will put some other stuff on there as well because as much as I do love Kenny, I would get tired of listening to just him.

I had the ipod in my purse the following day at school and chose to use the stopwatch option on it while we played a game in geomery class. One of my students said "that's a sweet color, Mrs. Frank!" I agree. I also think I have a sweet husband!

Now THAT is a gift! My husband wanted to give me one, but I told him no, since I knew it would be me that would have to do all the work to get all my favorite music on it. :) I'm a hard one.....
