ALWAYS check your pockets!!!

Sorry it’s been a while since my last post. We went on a little family vacation last week and the internet access was not what I had hoped, and then I had a little mishap that left me phoneless for nearly a week! And I think I almost died!

Anyway, You know how the activity of swimming has always been surrounded by rules?

  • No running
  • No diving in the shallow end
  • No rough housing
  • Wait 30 minutes after eating

Well, I’d like to add a new rule to that list:

ALWAYS check your pockets!!!

After getting my two girls ready, and being distracted by an eager 1 year old to jump straight in, I descended the pool stairs and enjoyed an hour or so of relaxing, splashing, laughing, and general pool fun. And then my wife bumped into me and that’s when I noticed I had something in my pocket… (Play dramatic “dunt dunt done”)

My 6 month old iPhone 6 (64GB)!!!!!

Thankfully I have phone insurance and it is being replaced, but the loss of pictures and videos I had taken during our trip is the really agonizing part. I had cloud backup enabled, but only over wifi, which unfortunately the place we were staying did not have.

While I wait for the replacement device, the dead phone is resting in some rice, in hopes of being able to get enough functionality to retrieve my data, but  I don’t have very high hopes.

LESSON LEARNED!
