The funny thing is, we were driving somewhere the other day and talking, and somehow we got to talking about exercising at the Y and I said something about how I'd like to get a real iPod some time, but that it was really more of a want than a need, so I would just wait a while. Anyway, my treadmill time at the Y is some of the best reading time I have - I just plop a book up there and walk away the chapters, but there are times I'd like to listen, too.
Then, yesterday I was listening online to John MacArthur preaching and Drew and I were talking again about how it would be good to be able to download some of the sermons and be able to listen while I walked or worked around the house instead of having to sit in front of the computer because our local radio station plays Grace to You at 9 PM when I'm not listening to the radio rather than during the day like our old station did, but I didn't think anything else about it.
And this morning, he gave me this. Total surprise. We don't usually do much in the way of gifts for Valentine's Day, but Drew decided this was a good year to go against our norm. I asked him if he got it before or after our conversation in the car and he said before. He knows me so well, doesn't he?
Now I just have to figure out how to use it and look for some good music to buy for download. Any suggestions?
