Oh Crap! Life Unplugged!

Posted on

Phone battery now at 51%. That won’t last too long on these back roads of Alabama on our way to Arkansas, especially as I write this on my WordPress phone app!
Earlier this morning I packed my laptop, both of our phone chargers, the charger for my kindle, my old phone to retrieve a password from for Andrew, and some magazines to read on the way in my laptop bag.
I make a mental and written note of these items every time we travel. This time I relied on my memory such as it is.
I checked all the bank balances, transferred money to Andrews account, and left him some cash in his room. (He picked this weekend to come home for a visit and we won’t even be home!) Hummm? Guess he needs some beach time. Have fun, Andrew and Jordon!
I texted Jessie a Happy Birthday. She said she is 29 this year but I have my doubts. The numbers don’t add up! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jessie!
Now we are on the road – an hour out on a ten hour drive. The sun is shinning brightly and I reach back to get something to read to pass the time as H drives.
Yes, you guessed it. 😞 I can just see that bag sitting on the sofa- it’s belly full of electronics and cords and all alone in that small quiet house. “Wait! You forgot me!”

  1. It is not the easiest thing to do! And probably a lot of typos from these very small keys!

  4. What a drag…but at least you have something to write on. Maybe your subconscious wants you to just relax. A theory…Happy 4th Elle, and for the record, you’re a great Mom 🙂

  5. Wow, I’m impressed that you did this post using your cell phone. I haven’t tried using my phone for blogging yet

    • Thanks. Lucky I have my secret cord stash so I can charge my phone! I don’t like to blog on my phone because I’m afraid I may hit the wrong thing and post before I’m ready. Makes me nervous!

  6. They make these things with paper pages that have words on them you can read. They had them way back from the “olden days” before electricity.
