Today was the day I had been eagerly awaiting for months. Because you see, today is the day that I am eligible for a cell phone upgrade!
No more restarting the phone twice a day just to get it to function! No more 30-second lags! And no more cell phone camera that takes blank pictures!
But as luck would have it…
The phone that I want — the Motorola Droid 3 (because I need a physical keyboard) — is on backorder everywhere.
However, the day is not without good news. Because by sheer chance, my current cell phone camera has magically decided to start working again! The focus is a bit off, but it no longer takes blank pictures!
So here are three pictures of Claire I took in celebration:
Didn’t you guys miss seeing recent pictures of her on this blog?
And don’t you love the headband? J and I have been getting sick of everyone mistaking her for a boy — yes, this happens even when she is dressed head to toe in pink, frilly outfits — that we went ahead and purchased a bunch of headbands. Not only does Claire Bear seem to love them (she actually leans her head forward whenever we show her one), she never gets mistaken for a boy when she wears them.
But back to the subject…
This month has been a hellish one for this geek, being without a computer and then having my cell phone crap out on me. As the Droid 3 is supposed to come back in stock in 8-10 days, and because I had been planning on ordering a replacement laptop next week anyway, I might just end up getting a brand new computer and a new phone within just days of each other.
(Just writing that sentence made me feel a bit guilty, like I’m a spoiled, bratty girl. But I figure that since my laptop is almost 3 years old and my cell phone is 2 years old — and because both of them are broken — we can justify the expense. Besides, we are half-considering these my “push presents” from J. )
One more week to go. I can do it!
P.S. — A couple of hours ago I experienced my very first earthquake! (It is the biggest quake to hit the East Coast since 1897 — a 5.9 in VA — and the second biggest of all time after a 7.3 that hit South Carolina in 1886.) Although at the time, I thought it was just BebeDeux causing a ruckus in my belly again. Figures!
