The end of being lost?

Those of you who know me well know that I have a terrible sense of direction. Last week I called Chris on two separate days because I had gotten turned around/lost on my way to various places. On one occasion, he didn't answer his phone right away and I got even more lost. The other time, he answered the phone, tried to direct me on mapquest, but the road I was on wasn't showing up! One of the times I was so late that the place closed by the time I found it and I had to reschedule the appointment.

Now don't get me wrong. I don't mind getting lost. I sometimes enjoy not knowing where I am and figuring out my way back by myself...just as long as I'm not trying to get somewhere in a hurry or by a deadline. I do not like being late.

So today Chris gave me a GPS! It was supposed to be a Christmas present but he decided it needed to happen a little earlier (I think as much for my sake as his!). I'm very excited about it and can't wait to figure out more about it!

You will never get lost again! When you first start using it look at the screen and listen to the voice - as opposed to just listening to the voice - sometimes it tells you to turn when you shouldn't. Great present!
