Me and My iPad…A Love Story

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 8:43 am

I bought myself an iPad.

I’ve been working hard at losing the weight I gained during my pregnancy.

Yet, I have a hard time keeping myself on track with eating and exercise, sometimes.

I know myself and I, sometimes, need a little extrinsic motivation.

So, I made a deal with myself that, if I got back to the weight I was before I got pregnant, I would buy myself an iPad.

Last weekend, finally, I did it.

I was very proud, and we went to the Apple store and bought an iPad.

I love it.

I love it so much.

I’ve downloaded apps for me, apps for the kids.

So far, my favorites are the NYTimes Crosswords, HBO Go, The Weather Channel, The Onion, Archie Comics, Cozi, PBS Kids. (all free)

And those are just my very favorite!

I still use my laptop for my blogging (which could explain the slow down in blogging this week, because I rarely put down the iPad) because it’s easier to type on here, and for that same reason, I am doing my lesson planning on my laptop, as well.

However, I just love, love, love the iPad.

Also, I love Apple.

Because, I dropped my iPad when trying to carry both it and Tiny Monkey from one room to the other.

The screen cracked.

It was two days after I bought it.

I was devastated.

I hadn’t bought the Apple Care Protection Plan.

Still, I went back to Apple and Luis replaced it for me…free.

Then, after one day, the new one wouldn’t recognize Wi-Fi (I bought the Wi-Fi only iPad) so I went back to the store again.

It was a problem with the chip, and Luis replaced it for me…free…again.

So, I’m on my third iPad and it’s working great and I’m being more careful and I am in heaven.
