Let it SNOW!
Vacation has been fun so far. We are stuck doing inside things today because it is really cold and it is snowing and blowing and the roads are slippery. Yesterday it got up to 29 degrees for about an hour and so I was outside playing around in the snow (got to check snowball fight off my to do list ;) ) After I came inside and ate lunch I realized that I didn't have my cell phone with me. (Can you see where this is going???) I looked in the car, I looked all over the house, I looked around outside. No phone. I even used my dad's cell to call myself in each of those places to see if it would ring. I was going to just forget about it, but we thought it might be out in the snow and we were supposed to get 6-12 inches last night and we knew if it snowed more we would never find the phone. So my wonderful brother (who drove over even though I didn't ask him to) and my kind mom went outside with me in the dark with flashlights. We got on our hands and knees and went through the snow in the front yard. I didn't think it could be out there...I mean what kind of a dork drops her phone in the snow and doesn't notice?!?!? But after only a little while of looking my mom let out a sound of triumph and held up my cold, snowy phone. We laughed later because the first thing I said when she found it and held it up was, "is that mine???" Um no she just took hers out of her pocket to look at it ;)
Luckily it had gotten really cold out right after we were outside so the snow didn't all melt into my phone. It still works!
