I recently got the new iPhone 4s and it has battery issues. The battery drains very quickly and Apple has yet to come up with a fix for it for all of the phones. Even with the new iOS update, my battery keeps draining.
To keep up the battery life on my phone, I’m constantly double “clicking” the home button to kill apps running in the background. This seems to help a little… but never enough to get my battery to run through the day.
Funny. That’s kind of a metaphor for my life recently.
Lately I’ve been feeling more run down than usual. I’m sleeping at night, (sometimes not the greatest, but it’s sleep!), I’m exercising more, paying attention to what I eat, and taking vitamins. I am doing the same things during the day and still, I am wiped out by 9:00. Most nights, I’m sleeping by 9:30. It sounds pathetic for a 31 year old!
Then, in a conversation with a friend, I had an epiphany. The adoption is what is wearing me out. The wait and the not knowing. The constant what if. It is constantly running in the background. Whenever the phone rings, I’m secretly hoping it’s the agency. Every email from Adoptions of Wisconsin, I’m hoping for more news. But nothing.
There are days I can be completely fine and talk to anyone and everyone about the adoption and how excited I am. There are other days that I cry at the drop of a hat when someone mentions it. (Like last week at my yearly check-up… that was fun!) I know with the holidays right around the corner, when we show up to family and friends houses, questions will be asked… and I can not be sure what reaction each individual person might get.
I’m constantly thinking about it. Tony even told me that he doesn’t think about it, because he knows I am, so he doesn’t have to. Even when I’m not thinking about it, it’s there, draining my battery.
Clearly I need an iOS update. Preferably one that includes a tropical destination in order to update.
Geri 31.2.1 will be the best!
