Good Day From SC

We made it to the beach. Finally, a vacation. I still have some things to do for work. I'll log in and do that later this afternoon. Thats what happens when I leave the office on payroll week.ugh.



Last night we had a little dilemma and it's pretty serious. It ruined everyones moods and caused a little sress in yesterevening. We made it here to our destination around noon, hooked up the camper and set off for a short walk. 
We have our 25 year old daughter with us. Yep, shes made it a point to come for a free vacation with us every year. Well, this year it's going to cost her. Why? Well, during our walk, she made a pit stop and ended up dropping her smart phone in the toilet. It became a dumb phone within minutes. She rushed to the general store and grabbed a bag of rice. Putting you wet phone in a bag of rice is suppose to cure it. Nope. Some of her phone works now, but most of the features are dead. 

So guess what.....

We are heading out Monday morning to travel 10 miles to the nearest Verizon store. (Dads not to happy). She will need to purchase a new phone. (Yes we are some of those mean parents that make our child do for herself after college). 
For now, She will have to enjoy a day without the luxury. It's killing her. Moms and dads, You know how its. When your kids aint happy, your not happy. Its going to be a long day. 

Meanwhile, I got up early and had my breakfast and coffee on the beach then went to the campground worship service while Nick took his walk and the daughter slept in.
 


Depiste the weather station calling for rain all week, it's a beautiful hot and sunny day.

  3. Not mean parents at all. It is a life reality that young adults are just that-adults with all the problems that brings. IF your daughter can stand to wait-those other functions might come back. It usually takes 3 or 4 days in the rice for it to pull all of the moisture out. Good luck...and I hope the rest of your vacation is uneventful. xo Diana

  5. Had the phone been off she may have had a chance. The best things to use to dry things off is the silicate the ships with meds and vitamins. Those tiny bags. They contain a substance that does attract moisture.
    You'd have to put the phone in a plastic bag with several of those little bags and hope for the best.

  6. Here's a question: Was there really a time when it was bad form to bring a phone into a bathroom?

  9. The thing I hate about Verizon is that getting a new phone often costs an arm and a leg there. The markup on these phones are criminal especially when you get them "out of plan"
