I Fell in Love Today

….his name is Garmin

Where have you been all my life….I’ve been so lost without you!

Today I decided to try out Rich’s new toy…which after invoking the “what is yours is mine” marriage rule, is my new toy. lol

My favorite feature of my new love is how he (actually it is a woman’s voice and very American so the pronunciation of the street names alone gave me a laugh) nicely says, Recalculating” after faltering to follow the given directions. It is virtually impossible to get lost…delayed perhaps but not lost.

No more pulling over to the side of the road, flipping through the map book trying to figure out where I am. No more frantic calls to Rich (my other love, the one with the internal GPS) trying to describe where I am. No more listening to my kids murmur from the backseat of the car, “Are we lost again?”

This truly is a new day; a turn of events for the directionally challenged!

I love you Garmin!

Amen... we love ours!

And I love that it's no longer my fault when we're lost.. whether I'm driving, or not!

Garmin rocks, huh? We used to use Garmin and switched for a while over to Tom Tom (bad idea!) and just recently switched back. I don't go ANYWHERE without mine...and Sam teases me that I don't know how to read a map anymore. :)

I would like to marry lady who's voice is on my Sat-Nav. She never nags about what I should have dome, but quietly guides me as to what to do next!
