I WIN!!!!! And a weird question.

Okay, I didn’t win anything exciting, but the hampers are empty, the laundry is folded and ready to be put away in the morning.  With the boys working and driving (to the beach, the springs, etc) I’m drowning in laundry.  I don’t mind laundry if I can listen to my Ipod audiobook.  I’m struggling with the Ipod thing lately.  

Since I was about 21, I cannot wear a watch.  Within about 10 minutes the battery is dead.  I love watches, but finally, I gave up.  Light bulbs?  4/5 out of 10 light bulbs blow up when I try to screw them into the sockets.  Usually I just wait for one of the kids or Mike to do it.  I’m wondering if whatever it is that is wonky with me is also giving me difficulty with the I-pod.  I can listen for several hours and then it just stops and freezes.  I gave up on my I-pod and Danny let me use his old one.  Same thing with that.  Some days I can coax it to work, some days, not.  Does anyone else have this problem?  If so, have you found a solution?  I do okay with a cd player, but that doesn’t work for walking or gardening.  AND, the local libraries are going all digital so I don’t know how long I’ll have access to hands-on cd’s. 


Any advice?????

  1. My mom kills watches and I zap lightbulbs. Luckily, I don't seem to kill the ipod…but maybe try getting one of those scuba-type rubber covers and always hold it with one hand while you tap it with the other? Kind of grounding yourself? I've always figured our problem must be related to electrical charge somehow.

  2. Damn, I thought mean, ugly neighbor was given a citation for nuisance calling.

    No clue but every cd player we own breaks. I have an under the counter mounted one that has given up. First the cd player, then all the other functions slowly broke.

    I happen to know that most of the other breakage is from small children fooling with them until they break. But we can't keep them working at all.

    I do think you have some sort of magnetism at work in the watch and iPod situations. What to do? I don't know.

  3. No advice, but my husband is the same way with watches. And since our lightbulbs never last long at all, I'm going to take over lightbulb replacement duty and see if it helps. Interesting!

  4. My dad kills watches, too. I will have to ask him if he has trouble with his Kindle. Have you thought of wearing your foil hat while listening to your iPod? HAHAHAHAHA…. OK. Sorry. My dad gets pocket watches now, because of the watch thing. You must have the same kind of mutant electrical charge coming from your body, too. Don't know what to do about the iPod – are their grounding cases? Get an Otterbox?
