I was about five minutes away from picking up the kids this evening when all of a sudden my phone went dead. One moment it was playing the audio book of Anne of Green Gables, and the next moment, nothing- nada- zilch. Completely and inexplicable dead.
I spent a while on tech support this evening, and honestly I am quite frustrated. This is the second phone that this has happened to in the last 24 months. I do the recommended OS update, and a couple of weeks later the phone dies. I googled it, and found out that I was not alone in my plight, but unfortunately (and of course) my phone was no longer covered by the warranty.
Here’s the dilemma- With Tim working crazy hours, and spending a lot of time out at the new house to be closer to work, it means that I am pretty much the sole caretaker of the children at the moment. So, I HAVE TO HAVE A PHONE! I need to be able to contact the school, the daycare, my mother-in-law, Tim, (and the list goes on.) Not to mention that I absolutely hate commuting without a phone, so this evening I ordered a new phone- a different make than the last two that gave me issues. Lord willing, this one will arrive soon and will be a sturdy machine!
