RIP My silver friend

Today I came downstairs and turned on my computer just as I do every day. I opened my email and got through the first few lines when suddenly POOF! The screen went black. At first I thought maybe the computer overheated. I gave it a few minutes and then tried to turn it on. Nothing. I waited a half hour Nothing. 4 hours. NOTHING!!!!! My computr died! I am so sad. We had five good years together. Perhaps I shortened her life span during the beer spilling incident. Perhaps it was just her time. Regardless- before she goes up to computer heaven she is gonna have to give me back some of my stuff. Like my pictures from the past couple months that I neglected to put on my external hard drive. Or my address book. Hello! I will be needing those things back missy! So now I have to look for a way to get these items off my hard drive and fast because its pretty hard to write a blog about travel and exploring the world with my kids when all my freaking pictures of my travels are on my computer!!! Oh well. I am feeling pretty sick anyhow so maybe this is God's way of giving me a break for a few days. I would love to think I will be getting a new computer but in reality I know Paul is going to be so excited to finally use this as an opportunity to get the Mac he has been lusting over for the past couple years and the computer I am typing on now will become my own. Maybe this will be the push to pull out old photos of adventures that we had prior to me starting this blog and finally start writing about them. Nevertheless a new chapter will begin in my sick little love affair with the laptop.

oh no, not the computer. I hope you can get everything off it, there must be a way.

Ran had to buy me a new one last week after Jay's laptop did the same thing ... and the teenager was not about to get the 'new' computer, he gets the hand-me-down ha ha.
