Fuzzy Me

What is it going to take to get this phone to charge?!

No matter how hard I pushed or twisted or manipulated the charger, it wouldn't go into my phone. I studied both the phone slot and the pokey in bit yet without getting my glasses, I wasn't going to find much out.

I'm not old enough to need glasses yet!

And I'm too lazy to want to go find them anyway .... I can do it another way; my way.

Next best thing was to get my kids to look at it; keep my denial and procrastinating attitude to boot. So biggest boy took on my delmer in a bid to solve poor blind and dim mums problem.

Why is that phone still beeping low battery?Italic

He gave up! That's not like him ... that was a great opportunity for his ego. Solution .... try another kid. Younger girl is a whiz with a lot of stuff and would definitely problem solve this issue for me

.... although my issue became hers and now we both had bigger problems than technology; attitudinal ones.

So now my equally as big but still technically younger son steps in probably more to stop these women from whining. He persevered with that sucker for at least half an hour, poking in impressive looking tools and almost getting it on many occasions.

Until ...

we hit that defining moment.

Life had delivered us yet another booger.

We SMS'ed my man with the last remaining energy the dying phone had with our bad news and then sat in silence waiting for my 'only two month old' phone to take it's last breath.

Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep! .....

It was very emotional.

Very humbling ....... but not as humbling as .....

"Mum! Your using the wrong charger. That's dad's!"

Almost biggest daughter had walked in on our wake. She saw the power supply we had tried to use and instinctively knew it was futile.

How can power work for something it wasn't designed for?

Oh God, I want to use your power; your strength. I don't want to live life through fuzzy eyes anymore. Please plug me in cause I know I can't and I am over wasting all my time and last bits of energy trying to jam in supplies that don't feed me.

Hilarious story with great spiritual application. That's a sermon! (And one people would actually listen to).

Yep, I'm with you. :) This made me smile. I can't find my cell phone charger since we got home from vacation. So I have no phone. I'm too lazy to dig around.

Enjoyed your post. How timely with my phone post. God is speaking. Time to recharge.

Have a great weekend!
