Birthday girl and other stuff
In the interest of fairness, I figured I better post a birthday picture of Bryn...better late than never, right?
So the toilet ate my iPod...well, kind of. I have an iPod nano that my in-laws gave me a year and a half ago (they got it with their computer and thought I might appreciate the hot pink little gadget!) that I finally broke out of the box since I have a 6 mile walk ahead of me tomorrow. Of course after spending 2+ hours yesterday fooling with it, it still wouldn't work. It would sync but wouldn't operate in any way once disconnected from the computer. Oh well (I think), I will just replace it for a newer and improved model. Or not! Who knew the damn things cost over $150!?!?! So maybe I will just upgrade my cell phone to an iPhone and use that as my iPod. Or not! They cost $399 (only $199) if I were eligible for an upgrade which I am not until October. Geez! Who knew I would have to sell a child to get some entertainment for myself while walking? So I sent Aaron to the Apple store to see if they could fix my poor wounded iPod and they don't have a battery in stock to see if that will solve the problem. Guess I'll listen to a lot of birdsong tomorrow!
And how is the toilet responsible, you ask? I wrote a check to the plumber today for $191 to replace some dumb leaking valve. Could have been a new iPod.
