Apple ipad

Post to Twitter .

I admit it.  I want one.  I really, really, REALLY want one.  Wouldn’t you want this thin, sleek and brilliant product?

Here’s the deal though.  I can’t justify buying an Apple ipad.  It’s not horribly expensive and I’d be perfectly happy with the smallest size and least expensive one, but it’s still an expense that we don’t need right now.  I know that our backyard landscaping ranks above this purchase.  And new brakes on my minivan. Oh, and diapers.

Isn’t it fun to have responsibilities that do not include me items.  I can’t remember the last time there was a totally foolish, selfish and irresponsible me purchase.  Well, one that didn’t include a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks!  Which I’m addicted to now by the way!

So instead I like to dream.  I like to wish and hope that it will magically appear on my doorstep one day.  I enter every contest I come across that is giving away an ipad.  I even have a coworker entering contests on my behalf (since she already has one of these fabulous ipads!).

Yep, jealous.  I’m totally jealous of her fun leather case and wi-fi keyboard accessories.  But really, I’d be happy with just the ipad.

There was a time when I had the latest technology.  A time when I didn’t think about where my money was going.  A time when I probably would have already had an ipad.

But it’s different now.  And don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade it even for a second. Not even at 3am when Owen has woken up for the 2nd time after Ryan already being up 3 times.  Even then on very little, interrupted sleep.  I still wouldn’t trade my priorities and where my money is spent.

But still, I can’t help but wish and hope and dream that I’ll win one of the millions of giveaways that I’ve entered and I too will have a sleek, shiny new ipad for myself.  Without the guilt.

  1. Yes, you definitely need one. That way you could leave comments like I am right now from my iPad while riding in the car. 🙂
    But I will warn you… Don’t let your kids know it exists or you may as well not even have one. Good luck! I’ll keep entering contests for you.

I would LOVE to hear from you!
