My Cell Phone
This is something I try hard not to leave home without - my cell phone, charged and ready to go. That's the whole point of it anyway - to use when you're out and about without access to a land line phone. That's why my hubby and I got them in the first place. I also take it when I walk in case of emergency and to know the time. Of course, it's become much more than that over the years. Now it's our long distance phone service, so without a charged phone at home, my calls are limited. That's exactly what happened last week, to my surprise. I heard a beeping at home and realized it was my phone and it needed charged. As I reached for my charger, I became aware that it was not in its usual spot and I had a pretty good idea where it was. Fortunately, I had enough juice to make a quick call to my hubby who confirmed my suspicions - he had taken my charger, along with his when he went out of town. To make matters worse, the car charger we bought wasn't working either! Well, after I calmed down, I made a run to Kmart to buy another car charger that I could take with me on my trip. Another thing I realized was that it doesn't feel too good to be tied to anything that much, be it phone or computer.
