I learned a very valuable lesson today. In fact, potentially it could’ve saved me lots and lots of money.
I have a habit of putting my cell phone in my bra. I put it there because it is easy to get to it. When it vibrates, I can grab it even if I have kids on my lap and what not. Regardless of what I am doing it’s easy to get to it, and I don’t miss it when it vibrates. So I stick it there. Especially when I am waiting for a text from someone.
So tonight, I had my phone there while I was waiting for my brother to text me to get a ride home from his girlfriend’s house. I made supper with it there. I ate, and then I got ready to bathe the boys. I’m sure you all know where this is going.
I turn on the bathtub, and turn around and get the kids undressed. I pick Nick up to put him in the tub, and along with him, plop goes my cellphone. SH*T!!
I get my phone out as fast as I can, I wrap it in a towel for the time being and get Alex in the tub. Once both the kids were in, I took my phone apart, it didn’t seem to wet, so I put it back together. It turned on. Yay me!
So… I put it back in my bra. Ha ha. Sometimes I am a little slow.
About an hour later I pull out my phone to see why my brother hasn’t texted me.. it’s off. I guess there was more water in it then I thought. So now it’s apart and in rice. Here’s hoping it turns back on tomorrow. I guess I need a new place to put my phone… maybe in my pocket?
Love, hugs, and more to come later!
