Good news – I have another phone – same model, Galaxy Nexus – hubby got on the phone (for the 3rd time) to talk to the customer loyalty department and got them to agree to replace my phone for $90. He has spent literally thousands of dollars with them over the years. He just had to sign with them again for another 3 year contract. Gak! These cell phone companies are like jailers. Oh, you want an extra blanket. Oh, you’ll have to stay in jail for another 3 years for that perk! Which is a lot better than the $295 we were quoted to repair my phone and the $500 fee the dealer wanted to replace it. And even better news – when I activated the new phone, thanks to Google, it still had all my contacts and 95% of my pictures (just don’t have the ones from Mother’s Day but that’s no big deal since friends took the same pictures). The videos of my mum and Kai were already on Google + so now all I have to do is to put back all my old apps. Ta da!
Then I got an audition for a lead in a movie – don’t get excited, it’s a bit of along shot – but I went for coaching the night before. That really helped my negative state of mind. I just needed to talk stuff out with someone who understood some of my frustrations. So if I go to coaching the night before, that will be my time to do my work. That way, the morning of an audition I won’t be a rushed, unprepared, scattered, exhausted mummy who just wants a cup of coffee and a nanny. Well, I won’t be unprepared anyway.
