Sunny Side Up

30 Jun

Sorry, this isn’t an egg recipe.

It’s been a couple weeks since my last post, and some great things have happened but unfortunately they’re soured by one awful thing — my iPhone was stolen when I was at the gym last week.

I know, I know, I should not have set it down, even if it was for only 10 minutes, tops. But I was in such a great mood — riding high from a fun weekend at the beach with friends, coming home and weighing in at less than pre-vaca (how does that happen?!?) — and I simply let my guard down. It was like losing my best friend. My life was on that phone. I had it with me working out because I record my exercises in it.

The last known location of my stolen iPhone.

Since I noticed it pretty quickly, I was able to use Apple’s MobileMe Find iPhone app and lock it remotely, send a message to it and track it using GPS. The gym staff called the police and they did more than I thought. They helped me track it and even did enough investigated that they narrowed it down to a youth group touring the facilities.

Nevertheless, the thief is still out there, and I had to get a new phone. Because of bad timing and bad luck, I lost all my photos and contacts (I had gotten a new computer and hadn’t yet installed iTunes or synced with my phone in a while).

I had wanted to share this cute little photo on a calendar I have at work, even before my bad luck. Today being the last day of June, I thought it appropriate. It encourages readers to take a positive outlook. “You’re at the halfway point of reaching your personal best this year.”
