The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The Good: I got my MacBook back from the shop and it worked perfectly. Well, I mean everything I sent it away with came back just as it was when I sent it away. They *said* the optical drive worked, but alas, I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Why, you ask?

The Bad: My son walked in the door and apparently slammed the door a little too hard. (Remember, we are living in a camper. Out door latch as a mild crimp, meaning you HAVE to slam it or it will not close.) My coffee cup was siting on the table and it literally jumped off the table and into my lap. I kid you not. It really did jump. Honest. The really bad? My MacBook was sitting happily on my lap.

The Ugly: Coffee spilled on a laptop equals broken laptop.

The REALLY UGLY: I'm not for sure what will happen this time for repairs. I'm sure something is really broken because my computer will not turn on at all.

Needless to say, my posting this week will be like last week. Minimal. I am really disheartened at the moment. I don't feel like writing or blogging or doing anything. Sure, it's just a computer, right? With years of research, hundreds of dollars of software and programs, pictures, graphics, passwords to all my online places, and


Galley's that need reading...
School records (I homeschool)

Yes. I'm heartbroken.


  1. Oh no!! That is terrible news! I hope you can get everything working again :s

  2. O_O Eep! I hope, if they can't get it working again, you're at least able to recover all your stuff.

  3. I'm so sorry! That's terrible. Some techy guy should be able to retrieve all your files from your hard drive.. never fear.

  4. yikes! good luck with everything.

  5. Crossing my fingers for you to salvage all your stuff. :(

  6. Agreed... this is awful news... and I hope the Geniuses at the Apple store (or wherever you go) will be able to get you fully restored!
