I Love My Mp3

As you can tell I am a part of that first MTV generation and heard the song I Love My MTV on the radio often during my youth. Now on to my play on words. I bought my dear husband a mp3 player for father's day this spring. Since he received this nifty little gadget, I seemed to have claimed it. I stay at home everyday and constantly hear little children laughing and talking and basically making noise. Now do not get me wrong, I love my children and their happy voices but I also need adult voices. Now this is were the mp3 player comes in. I spend much of my day picking up and cleaning, folding clothes or doing dishes while the kids are playing. While my hands are busy and I can have one of the ear buds in and I can be learning. When we first got the player, swimming lessons were just beginning to start for the older three children. My husband downloaded many Issues ect. Episodes for me to listen to during these lessons. I loved being able to walk around with my youngest child and play with him while I was learning about different important issues. There are always things to learn about the church and now I have a way to do it without having to be strapped to a radio or computer.
Our church has been a sponsor of Issues ect. for a few years and I always wanted to be able to listen to show. But being a busy Mom it was not a reality that would happen. Now I can download a show and listen to it when I can. Plus I can also stick in my favorite baroque music every now and then. So I apologize to my husband for loving his mp3 player so much, and I thank him for being so willing to share. I Love you dear!

Hi Charity - neat blog. Now I'll have to look into an mp3 player more seriously - I never thought how freeing one could be.

I read your other blogs too. I don't cook on Sunday nights either; but here we eat popcorn and apples and sometimes those big soft pretzels with cheese sauce while we sit around and watch a show. I love that night. :-)
