So my phone? It really is broken, and it sucks. It worked until my battery went down, then it wouldn't charge. I went in to Cingular yesterday to get a new battery, but sadly that was not the problem. The battery is good, the phone is ruined. The price for a new version of the same phone I had (for a measly two months)? $300. Uh, no thanks. If I buy from Cingular, even for their crappiest phone, the cheapest I can get one is $120. I've already doled out about $700 this week for other expenses - bridesmaid dress, class reunion, and doula - so I'm really hesitant to drop another big chunk of cash. I'm watching a few auctions on ebay now, so hopefully I'll win one of them today, although it's still going to be $60-$80. Plus, worse than that, I have to go for days with no way to contact anyone or vice versa. I am very grumpy over this phone issue.

To cheer me up, I will post a few pics of the birthday girl enjoying last night's celebration.

What a lovely birthday girl!

My husband dropped his cell phone in the tub a day before you blogged about yours taking a swim. His is fully dead too. *sigh*

you could make it known that you are looking for a Cingular phone..post it on the message boards and/or freecycle. You might get lucky and I see posts like that all the time.

Happy Birthday Emma. Lydia came in while I was loading your page, and she stopped, in what I presume to be awe, and whispered, "I want to see the princess pictures mommy!"

Emma looks exactly like Steveo in the picture with the cake.
