Did you know my husband is a genius?

I have to set this one up:

So last week as I was running out the door to work one day, I grabbed my cell phone (off the charger) and noticed that it had hardly charged. Slightly annoyed, but not having time to think about it (much bigger fish to try...LOL) I went on with my day. I love my current mobile and it far... seemed indestructible (even with a distructobaby in the house). I continued to notice during the week that it wasn't charging properly and I was fearing that it might be time to break down and get a new phone. I really didn't want to go through the hassle and the expense so you could say that my poor phone had been running on faith and prayers all week.

Needless to say last night when Brad went to put it on the charger and noticed that the prongs that fit into the charger were bent beyond repair I was bummed. My response to him was, "Honey you are a genius, I know you can fix it, you can fix anything". He wasn't so enthusiastic and a pin and knife later Brad declared defeat. I was exhausted and went to bed huffing and puffing. Then....I woke up to find this in his office this morning:

This people, is my cell phone battery charging! At first when I saw it, it took me a minute to figure out what the contraption was and where the heck it had come from. Then the lights in my tired brain switched on. I went straight into the kitchen where Brad was eating his breakfast and declared him a true genius. Just when I think he can't possibly do anything else he manages to amaze me yet again. How did I get so lucky? I'll never stop asking myself that very question! Thank you honey! Now we just need to decide if the $50.00 we are going to have to spend on batteries is really worth keeping my tired old phone OR if it really is time to break down and get a new one!
