Please Help

Okay, so I have a severe case of the cough syrup syndrome. Soon, a new iPhone will be delivered to me, and I am desperately trying to make a decision about which case to get. I've managed to narrow down the bazillions available to just a few choices. From there, I simply cannot make up my mind. I mean, what will happen if I choose the wrong one? Surely you can recognize the potentially serious consequences if I make the wrong choice.

Mike was trying to help me last night, but then he had the bright idea of enlisting your support in helping me choose. My phone is white, by the way, and now here are the ones I'm trying to decide among:

Exhibit A: Yin and Yang Cats (reminds me of my background as a therapist)


Exhibit B: Freud Cats (maybe I should have given old Sigmund a break when I was studying psychology)


Exhibit C: Cat Quilt (for reasons that should be obvious)


Exhibit D: Cats and Fish (it reminds me of a quilt)


Exhibit E. Cats in Love (reminds me of my blog masthead)


So...you can see why I'm having such a difficult time deciding, and this is obviously a weighty matter. With a government shutdown and so much strife in the world, it is imperative that I choose the right case for my phone. I fear the consequences for the world at large if I make the wrong choice.

There is a little poll at the top of my left side bar. I'll leave it open for the next week. Please register your vote, or else leave a comment. Thank you for helping me solve this cat conundrum. You've helped make the world a safer place today.

I do see why you are having a really difficult time deciding!

Ok, got my vote in. I got a plain rubber case, something practical that i can drop, lol. I made a punch needle case to hold it in, in my purse so it gives it extra bang protection;)

That was a hard choice. I went back & forth a few times before I voted.

I just read on f'book that one of my online pals was putting her groceries away & put her *new* iPhone in the freezer! Yikes!!! Luckily it thawed out & works A-OK.

Nice cop out on Mike's part, but it really is important, you have to like it for a really long time. I have one that is a Michael Miller fabric that still makes me smile.
1. is cute but I don't like yin and yang
2. needs a picture
3. too busy
4. I would pick this one if the fish were'nt the center, I don't like the cut up cats.
5. My choice, but I did vote.

Wow!!!! That is tough!!! But the cat quilt cracks me up!!!! Every time I saw it I would crack up so I would choose it!!!! Fun!!!

Diane Wild said...

I'm choosing the cat quilt. It's definitely you. But, I can see your dilemma.

Samantha said...

One of each? :D

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

You are killing me today. Maybe I need some of that cough syrup...giggle. My vote is in, and I hope it was the correct one for world peace...;)

Kate said...

I can see the dilemma. Drama Teen got a new phone a couple of months ago. She picked a really cool case, then today at an art show came across one with a tiger on it that was just her. So she now has a new case. I figure she's even, we never got around to buying a case for her last phone.

Teresa in Music City said...

Well, for world peace I will chime in with my 2 cents worth - hey wait a minute, is it even worth 2 cents anymore? Oh well.....

I voted for the Yin/Yang - love it!!!! I also like the one like your header, but the other had a bigger "cool & unique" factor :*) Also, I have had a white iPhone for over a year and my back is white with multi-colored dots. I've been happy with it. It doesn't look new anymore, but then I really don't expect it too. I've dropped it at least a million times and the cover has some dents and scratches, but I really can't say that it has discolored.

LynCC said...

Hehe :D Love the post. Yeah, it's hard to choose!

Janarama said...

I had a hard time choosing between Cat Quilt and Cats in Love. My final answer is Cats in Love because it has two cats and so do you.

Dasha said...

Choice No. 1 - Cat quilt,
Choice No. 2 - Cat quilt,
Choice No. 3 - Cat quilt,
It isn't a choice really, is it....

Marei said...

Conundrum indeed. How can I possibly go through the motions of my day....live my life...with such an important decision looming over your head? I'm thinking and thinking and thinking. Hmmm. Are there any other choices? HA! You're on your own with this one. I can not be a party to such an overwhelmingly, earth-shatteringly, important decision. The pressure is too great.

Julianne said...

Yin & Yang or Cats & Fish!

Lee said...

Cats In Love got my vote. Why? Why, it looks almost identical to your "logo" at the top of your blog :) My original choice was the cat quilt one, but then, you don't have a white cat, and the gold one might make you sad to thing about George every time you picked it up.

Carole in Nebraska said...

Definitely CAT QUILT !!! Is there any other choice now really????

Larissa said...

Oh DEFINITLEY the Cat Quilt cover!!! ... Where'd you find this lovely, if it's not to bold to ask ;) ?

OR ! You could use vistaprint and get a custom one with your own design / picture ! Just adding in yet another option for you LOL !

Bianca said...

I totally can see your problem.
I voted the last, although I truely love the first too, but the design is cut so it doesn't show it's real beauty like this. Maybe if it was a bit smaller?

Well, what ever you decide, it will be awsome!! Will you let us know?

Lyndsey said...

Why do men always opt out on difficult decisions? I've put my vote in but I thought I'd ask Picasso as he was dancing on the keyboard. He likes the yin and yang cats or cats in love. Picasso suggests you ask Smitty as he wouldn't want you to have the wrong case (how would he be able to hold his head and tail high in public in such circumstances?)

Michele said...

I so understand. I went through the same thing when I got my new phone last year. I'm still thrilled with the one that I got. I voted.

legato1958 said...

All of them are great! I did vote for 1. So cute... do show us after you get it!

Hello Barbara,

I have been terribly British and have voted for an underdog. My choice is second from last at the moment - can't waste a vote on a total loser. Or isn't that what democracy is all about?

I can see your problem. I'd have a hard time choosing too. In fact, I really couldn't choose just one. Cats aren't really my thing (well, they are, but they make me sneeze terribly, and if they're around me too awful long, I end up with a wicked migraine...but I do love how soft & furry they are!)....but I do love the clean lines of Yin & Yang Cats and I love the snugglies of Cats in Love(reminds me of you & Mr. and me & Driver).

When we finally broke down & bought our smart(er) phone, we just got a plain silver phone then threw it in a hot pink Otter Box. Why hot pink? 'Cuz it wouldn't get as dirty as white and it was waaaay more visible than black. I mean, have you ever looked for something BLACK in a deep, dark black hole of a purse? (even tho my purse is really just a fabric envelope, and it's bright, tropical blue, it's still considered a deep dark hole by some people...)

Then again, after even more consideration, Cats & Fishes provides a nice spot of color....but, yeah, I think the cute yet still sophisticated look is the Cats in Love...or maybe Yin Yang Cats..

Can't wait to see what you end up with and why! I just sent my RV'er girlfriend links to 3 little kitties at the shelter. She's just finishing up a gate guard job - she wasn't permitted alcohol OR animals of any sort. Been a rough summer for her, for sure! She's on the way down south today (to the Valley, Rio Grande Valley)to drop off her camper at her winter park, then she'll hot foot it back to GA, where we originally met & go visit her sister. She'll stop in on her way out and/or back, and I'm hoping to get her a kitty of her own.

Good luck choosing!

c said...

I voted for the cats in love, cause you have 2 cats who "like" each other, and you and Mike love each other and the cats. However if you can customize it any further
then you can put the cats names on it or pictures (I doubt they went that far), How neat to have the options. Now if it was me, I woudl want each one, and change it out to
what mood I was in that day-lol

Sandy said...

I like number 1 just because it's cool artwork!

Marla said...

I vote for the cats on the quilt with the cat wrapped around her neck. Hilarious!

Wendy said...

yeah ... I gotta vote for the cat quilt myself ... #3 ... too fun!! Good luck deciding!

Brown Family said...

That is a tough choice. I did vote and then changed my mind!

Stray Stitches (Linda G) said...

I like the cats and fish. Bright enough to see if you should misplace it, cute, and something I wouldn't get tired of. Looking forward to see what you select.

Nita said...

#1 is very classy. That's my vote!

Raelene said...

Easy
#3
