Living Without My IPAD


This was Taken at the Ice castles this winter!

Sometimes you just know deep inside you that you need to walk away from a gadget or habit, you know? Even so… it’s such a part of your life that it seems extremely  difficult to stop. This is how I feel about my  iPad usage.  I’ve relied on it for five years, checking the weather, email, banking, blogging, messaging, you get the idea, right?

A few months ago the screen shattered when I dropped it. ( I had dropped it many times before but was lucky every time) I kept on using it and developed a system where I wouldn’t get glass splinters from touching the screen. Then the battery started acting up and not charging. I rushed to buy a new charger cable and discovered that the battery’s finally dead. My iPad is gone and here I am typing on my desktop computer. It’s not the same nor as convenient but I wonder if this was God’s doing, as the thoughts of addiction came to my mind. Everywhere I was the iPad wasn’t far away.


So this is why I haven’t written or posted pictures lately. Many of my photos for my blog were on the iPad and I didn’t back it up. So this is a lesson learned that if I ever do buy another gadget for information….I’ll back it up!

I hope this entry finds you all well and happy with your life!

I’m working on a post about this winter and a visit to the Ice Castles and my mom’s trip to Amish country in Ohio. Check back in soon, friends!

All My Best,

Heart and Soul

    1. Hi Jodi, I hope you’re having a good weekend. I need to catch up on your blog entries, being without my ipad has been a challenge to blog and read others. Yes, I’ll share the Ice Castles post as soon as I finish it.

  2. Oh so sorry to hear that. Yes, we can rely on a lot of gadgets these days can’t we? However, I find when I blog, I prefer to use my desktop as I find the keyboard on the iPad a bit hard to type on unless one has a “real” keyboard attached to the iPad. Gosh, that had to be tough losing all your pictures 😦

    1. Hi Loretta, yes it’s hard to swallow but I learned a valuable lesson. It could be worse, I have many photos on my desktop and now I just need to back them up. Blessings to you!


  3. what gorgeous pics of the ice palace! I too broke a camera once in London when it fell off. But I just went and got another with a longer lens than that one and got better pics! we learn from such maddening stuff!
