Deathcab for iPhone!
My husband says that God killed my iPhone because it was my little idol.
I think it was Satan The Destroyer because he knew that I was doing most of my Bible in 90 Days reading on my You Version Bible App while I was nursing Lion Cub to sleep.
Either way, Lion Cub's 30 second use of my phone as a teether managed to reek havoc on my touch screen which is now unresponsive through a strip in the middle. It is amazing what a little baby saliva can do!
And now it sits in a plastic snack bag covered in rice to suck out the moisture, but sadly at this point, I have very little hope of it recovering.
I have now been without my phone for a week- my little portal to the outside world. It has been difficult but surprisingly not as bad as I thought it would be. Sure, I no longer have an alarm clock or instant access to my e-mail, I'm completely out of touch with Facebook and can't send a text, but somehow I am surviving.
I guess you could say that Lion Cub took Oprah's No Phone pledge a little too seriously (not that I ever texted at a red light... well, not in a long time!).
I think that biggest hit has been on my Bible in 90 Days reading. I have gotten behind numerous times over the last week and a half and the amount of time I spend laying with Lion Cub trying to get him to sleep seems so much longer... and boring! Yeah... that part is daunting.
But I refuse to buy a new phone right now! I have a had my precious little 2G for two and a half years and I refuse to use my upgrade until the 4G with video chat comes out in June! Somehow, I will make do... somehow.
Until then, however, I may need to find a new alarm clock. Especially if I have any hope of reviving my Early Bird Challenge!
