I am nervous about jinxing myself with this statement, but I’m going to say it anyway:
I’ve had my iPhone for more than two years and I have never (really) lost it.
As a chronic lose-er, this is kind of a big deal.
Soon after I got it, I did have ten minutes of panic when I left it in a nearby room at church, and I do regularly call it so I can locate it as I’m ready to walk out the door, but I’ve never lost it lost it.
Like, can’t-find-it-for-a-week lost it.
I believe this is because I use it. A lot. So I’m highly motivated to find my phone quickly when it does disappear, before it has a chance to be buried for the long term.
I also can easily think back to the last time I used it and where I was when I used it.
I can also find our charger easily. Because Hubby and I use our phones a lot, we charge them nightly. (Actually, he charges them. Thankfully.)
But I am nervous, terribly nervous, about losing my Kindle charger.
I’m using my Kindle like crazy, but it only needs to be charged about every three weeks.
THREE weeks! Do you know what can happen around here in three weeks?!?!
Thankfully, both times I’ve needed to charge it (since the original charge on Christmas day), the charger has been in its designated spot. But each time, I’ve held my breath while walking to that designated spot, carrying the just-like-a-book-but-not-a-real-book-since-it-has-to-be-CHARGED Kindle.
I just don’t have a good record with these kinds of things . . .
I’m telling myself that I will NEVER ever ever charge it anywhere but in that spot so the charger will never move.
But I’m still nervous.
I can’t help myself. I’m linking to Amazon (via my affiliate link, of course) just in case you’ve been wanting a Kindle and today’s the day you decide to buy it. Here’s the Kindle I have. I love it. It’s the cheapest, least fancy one and it’s exactly what I wanted. No pages to flutter or fall closed (at the gym or in bed). I just prop it up against Hubby’s shoulder and hit the little button when I want to turn a page. It also is NOT backlit and does NOT allow for internet browsing. I look at computer screens enough/too much as it is and I wanted something that looks as close to a real book as possible.
