So, for his benefit, just in case he checks my blog. Here is what has been happening. First, my iPod died which is a disaster of tremendous proportion because I cannot fly without my iPod because I cannot sleep on planes unless I am playing sleep sounds on my iPod so the fact of it's breaking meant that I had to get it fixed. Except here is the thing about iPods--you can't fix them. They said try rebooting it. Seriously, like I hadn't tried that a hundred times. And then they said try putting it in recovery mode which I had also tried before and they tried again and it didn't work. So then they said I dunno it looks like a hardware failure and I wanted to say the Genius Bar is not so much filled with geniuses. So I had to buy a new iPod which was a bummer because they are not cheap and I had already paid a bundle to fix my phone.
Oh yes, because my iPod was broken, I was listening to music on my phone during my commute and I dropped it on the bricks. And it looked a little like this.
And I had to borrow Child 3's phone and no one could get ahold of me for the entire week. And I have to have a phone so I took it to the mall and instead of saying, well gee we don't know maybe it's a hardware problem, they said sure, we can fix that. Just leave it to us. So I did and they did and now I have my phone back and a new case which will hopefully keep it from breaking and also not using it like an iPod.
Child 2 & 3 went to a play tonight and had a great time together. And Child 1 and I went grocery shopping and bought all kinds of snacks which were mostly cheese. And we had a lovely dinner and now I'm watching a movie that Husband wouldn't be interested in at all. Because I can because I am not TDY in Paradise with no internet.
