Pretty much unreachable

I haven't seen my phone since Friday. On Saturday, I reckoned that it must have been left somewhere at work; yesterday, I looked all over at work (it took 15 seconds) and found nothing. I've looked everywhere it could have possible fallen in the car.

Last year, we dropped our home phone service because it didn't make sense to pay for a landline when all three of us have cell phones. Internet comes via cable. But now that I'm without that cell phone (I still have hope that it will turn up somewhere), I kind of wish we still had the service. Meanwhile, it's been pretty quiet on my end, and it's sorta nice.

Did you check with those ducks and chickens? Maybe they stole your cell phone again.

And I assume you rang yourself?

Well that explains a lot! I tried to get you on Friday. I was starting to worry.

Bummer about the cell phone.. I'm sure it'll show up.

Sidenote: how do you put a word-verification dealy in the comments section? My blog, although sparsely updated, is often spammed. Thanks.

nitsuj: Look in the Settings > Comments of your blog. There should be a Word Verification setting there.

Interstellarlass - I tried to, but I when I went to call myself with my phone, I realized it was missing... :)

What with all the kids and grand kids our bloody phones never seem to stop ringing.

Enjoy the quiet while it lasts.

Checked under the sofa?

HA HA. My math is bad, but "all three of us" have cell phones means there are two other cell phones...

Yeah I know, IL, and I thought of that. But, a) the last time I saw it was Friday at work, so it'd be set to Silent mode, and b) the battery's probably dead by now.

chickens and ducks... you know, like the last time you blogged about losing it... at the trampoline farm.

Seriously do you have your phone back yet?? Call me from someone elses if you get a chance.

who are the three of you living in your so-called house/apt? no one else could call your phone for you?

I forgot to mention, I found the phone in the pocket of my leather jacket. (I had worn it to work two Fridays ago, the day I lost the phone.)

The phone was set to Silent mode, so if someone had called it, it wouldn't have been heard at all. When I found the phone, indeed, it was dead.
