phones and medals and surfers

Silly Surfers and Sherbet Shorts

Things here are fine. We've been watching the Olympics every day. Very fun, very amazing the things those athletes can do ! I can't imagine.

Speaking of athletes my brother ran his first triathlon this past weekend. Whoo Hoo! I need to stop being a slacker and do something.

J has been on vacation with Em this last week. Every time I call she's busy having fun and sends a text that she'll tell me all about it when she comes home. Which is fine, I am glad she's having fun. Luckily for me Caroline is there and has taken the time to blog a bit about it. Click on the pictures title to read her very funny story about their last day :)

Speaking of texting, we have been fighting with our cell phone company the very retarded, never able to get a bill right to save their lives and trying to squeeze every penny out of you nameless company S-----. At the beginning of June I went to one of their stores with J to get her a cell phone. The reason I went in person was because I didn't trust them to get it right over the phone. We spent a good hour talking to them and making sure that our bill would be as we understood it and that she would have unlimited texting. She's a teenager. Nuff said. Today I found out our bill is $1800+ and it's all in texting charges on her phone. What!?!. So I've been talking to four (so far) supervisors trying to get it taken care of. That is absurd. What parent would allow that? or pay that? I hate S-----!

Cell phone companies are ridiculous! I'm sorry you have to deal with it but I hope it gets worked out.

How frustrating! I hope that gets worked out soon. We are also watching and watching and watching the olympics! :)

Ugh! I'm sorry you're having to go through all that stress. How frustrating, especially since you went to all the effort of making sure things were right. I hope that they get things fixed soon for you guys!

I love that pic with the girls in the matching swim suits! :)

We just got a bill for our kids (same company) and were shocked with the charges, but you're making me feel A WHOLE LOT BETTER.

I would be so mad.

The picture at the top is adorable.

We made a change in our plan with A--- or is it C------, they keep changing their name, and they kept messing up our minutes. I kept calling and calling, they finally saw the light and I won. Isn't the customer always right? Good luck!
