Let's NOT talk about Simple!

Why is it that life has become more difficult with all of these new technological inventions that are supposed to be making our life easier?

Thanks to cell phones, I now have allowed everyone easy access to me ALL day long.

Thanks to voicemail, I now have several messages that require call backs because I didn't have time to answer my cell phone while I was unloading children and groceries from my van.

Thanks to the Blackberry, I now have a husband who is ALWAYS at work.

Thanks to the internet, I can waste several precious hours trying to diagnose my current diseases and sicknesses.

Thanks to FACEBOOK, MYSPACE, and BLOGS that take up so much of my time by keeping me connected with others and reuniting old friendships.

Don't get me wrong, I love my camera phone, having the world at my fingertips, and maintaining friendships. But sometimes I wish they were never invented! Weren't all of these things created to simplify life?
