While waiting for the car, I went to the cingular shop to ask about phone plans. I have been looking into cellular plans for a while now and decided it would be good to go with the same company my kids use. I also knew what I needed to have: free roaming in CA and Nevada especially, text messaging, free long distance. And I needed to know that my phone would work in my own home, so they loaned me a phone to try out before I commit. I have it now. Unfortunately, I didn't have a code number they wanted so could not complete a call, but I could at least determine that there is reception here. I will go back to the store in a few minutes and wrap up the deal. I'll have the phone on the trip to Desert Hot Springs, a good thing too, as well as the next trip to Las Vegas at the end of the month.
My legs hurt like they have been hiking ten miles. I haven't been doing anything so this has got to be me being sick. It's awful and reminds me of how I felt several years ago when short walking trips hurt and I had to sit down often. Standing even for a signal at a corner is painful right now.
