One of the conditions of moving here (probably the only one, provided the job paid well enough for us to live on) was that we could get smart phones when we got here and that I could get an iPhone. Nate got out of getting an iPhone through the myriad of rules from the cell phone carrier. He didn’t think he wanted one anyway, but conceded that it would be easier to coordinate our lives on compatible devices. He wasn’t too upset when it didn’t work out, and “settled” for a Droid. Every time he gets a text, it says “Droid” very menacingly, which he says is to remind me that his phone is better than mine. It’s amusing.
One of the (many) benefits of having an iPhone is that the camera on this phone is great! It is probably better than the point-and-shoot that I have, but I love my camera, so I won’t go that far. It’s nice to have a convenient camera that takes good photos when you’re exploring a new area!
Not that I’ve been doing much exploring. We got here last Sunday but didn’t get our cars until Friday. I’ve spent most of my time in our sparsely-furnished one-bedroom apartment. Here are some of the things that have kept me sane – or so.
Mountains are visible from almost everywhere in Tucson
The one indulgence I snuck into my suitcase without Nate knowing. And, oh, they have made me happy 🙂
I, the proud owner of about 87,923,432 water bottles, did not bring a single water bottle with me to the desert. Nate insisted we purchase some. I am almost never separated from mine.
Bota Box and fresh fruit – Yum! Maybe I’ll attempt sangria one of these hot and lazy afternoons!
