The technological revolution has begun.
Last night at 9pm the power went out. So we all went to bed early.
This morning Steph told me that Emily's alarm had not gone off.
So I got going.
I got back from that and settled in to a long day of listening to the wind blow. It was blowing stuff all over the yard.
My phone would not charge, and the tablet that I use for bills of sale is shutting off at will.
I did several loads of laundry and cleaned the bathroom and bedroom. I figured that was enough for one day.
At 2 I jumped in the shower for a quick hose off.
At 240 the UPS truck showed up with the computers from my dad. (Don't ask what kind, other than an Acer I really don't know. It has been refurbished and works).
I opened the box and plugged them in to charge and the bus showed up.
I got Heath in the truck and followed the bus till it turned off. Then I went to get Emily.
Then we headed up to Hickory.
I stopped at Northern Tool and returned the drum pump that didn't work and the air chuck that only lasted for one tire.
After we found Verizon I decided to look for a new phone.
Emily's mother keeps threatening to turn her phone off every time she misses a call. What the woman refuses to understand is that Sprint has no signal here, and if she sends messages at 3am no one is going to be awake.
After talking to a guy and checking out all the phones I decided on a Google phone. It is water resistant. I also bought a Lifeproof case. Heath has one on his tablet and has so far not managed to destroy it. I figured it might work for me.
We came home and I finally got to look at my new laptop. It is pretty nice.
Tomorrow I have to pick up two cars and fix a third. That should make up for my sitting for a few hours today.
