Dear Facebook,

No, I will not download and install the bandwidth and productivity hog “Facebook Messenger.” The only games that are installed on my phone are for Ethan to play. I try to keep my phone for utility purposes only. I will not be glued to my phone 24/7 – just to see what someone has to say to me. That’s what texting is for – and I don’t even do that much.

I cannot entirely quit because no on else will move elsewhere with me and it is one of the few connections I have with friends and family. It looks like I may only be on FB on my laptop. Unfortunately, This means once a week only.

Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise. Sorry Leo, but I understand your complaint now.  I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that it’s a glitch on their end. At least that is what it appears to be. I’ll be following my advice and clear my cache… etc, etc. If the problem persists, it’s likely I won’t be on FB much.

Today has been one of the most obnoxious days I’ve had in a while. First, my phone quits. I figured that some firmware update messed something up and I had to pull the battery to reset it. This has happened before. No problem, right?

I open the back, only to find the inside wet. How on earth did water get in there? Or was it baby spit? Ethan did get a hold of it earlier that day, and I thought I had grabbed it from him before he decided to taste test it.

Oh, well, I left it open and battery out until I was sure it was dry, and put it back together. It now works. Unfortunately, it was too late to make the phone calls I had planned on, so I’ll have to wait until tomorrow.

I took plenty of videos today but due to internet problems the last few days, I hadn’t posted any dailies. I put my SD card in and decided that the card was filling to fast. I’ve been meaning to turn down the resolution as YouTube only needs 720p.

So I turn on Sarah’s Camera that I was borrowing and…


All that conscience effort of being extra careful seemed to be not enough. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how that happened. The phone, it was probably baby spit, but this? The only time this could have happened was when one of the kids had moved it on me. I don’t know, maybe tapped it against the table or something.

The camera works, but there’s no way I can change the settings now and it’s going to be difficult to see if I’m actually getting my target into the frame.

I’m not going to borrow Michala’s camera because I’m afraid that I might have the electronic touch of death at the moment. Hopefully it’s not permanent.

So far, my laptop still works. Thank God.


p>Maybe I should just go Amish.
