Give and take…

So, I had an emotional meltdown yesterday. I have been working really hard, being really good with the money coming in, trying to figure out the stupid Stratus, and and and… Anyway, my paycheck came yesterday. I had enough that I decided I could finally replace my phone that has been trying to die. I finished work, went to Best Buy and bought myself a T-mobile prepaid phone (we have Net10 for our service provider. they want too much for their phones). A LG Optimus L90. I immediately transferred my SIM and micro SD card into it and plugged it in to charge while running around taking care of some errands. Once fully charged, I set up some of the features so I could use it and figured I would finish the set up once I was home. I stopped at a convenience store for something to drink because I was feeling dehydrated (thanks to having to drive around with the heat on in upper 80 degree weather). I placed the phone on the dash. When I got back in the car, I forgot the phone was there and took off. The phone sailed across the dash and right out the window where it shattered. (see photo below)

This was the final straw on the stress pile and I came unglued. I haven’t done anything special for myself in months and this seemed like a good route to take since it is a needed item for work.  Something special for me and a responsible purchase at the same time…win-win. Unfortunately, not so much. 😦

On a lighter note, I bought a bottle of K&W FiberLock Head Gasket & Block Repair this morning. The car is no longer overheating and I no longer have to drive around with the heat on. Sweet.

    oh, goodness, sorry about the phone. Maybe you could take it to Best Buy? Sometimes they do exchange it if you still have the receipt – may as well try it!

    At least you have one victory with the overheating problem. Focus on the positive, because the rest will be resolved soon.
