Loss of a Friend.

Okay, so it wasn’t like I lost one of my “real” friends, but my laptop and I have spent so many hours working together that I must admit to a twinge of grief.

I’m not much of a sports spectator. On Super Bowl Sunday, Jason invited friends over to watch the game, and I thought I’d get some writing done. I pressed that little power button and nothing happened. I tried again. Nothing. This went on and on with me not willing to face the facts. I brought the lifeless machine to our friend Craig. I’m sure he wasn’t thrilled about me interrupting the game, but he was patient and took a look. Thirty minutes later he pronounced it dead.

So, what now? Well, I’ve been sharing the kids computer. They are really good sports about this, but I can tell they’re all wondering how long till Mom gets her own machine again. I’m wondering the same thing.

Thanks for listening,

    If that picture if your laptop, it looks like a train ran over it and THAT is your problem. 🙂 Seriously, I totally understand. Laptops are like third arms or something. It hurts to lose them.
