It seems that when it rains ~ it pours!
A few nights ago, while I was uploading some photos to my blog, my monitor went black.
Wierd....it didnt end..it just went black. The wake-up button would bring it right back...but only for a few seconds.
I ask my husband to bring his laptop home for me to use that afternoon. When I went to turn it on...it wouldn't power on. Really?
I began to Panic!!! My husband uses his laptop for work, of course. And now somehow I had broken both of our computers in one day!
Emily was out of school that day because of Exam make-ups...unexcused absence...another story!
She and I headed out for a quick lunch and a hunt for a computer repair shop. We wanted to avoid the "bank taking" trip to the Best Buy Geek Squad if at all possible.
After a few stops and a barely helpful fellow at Office max...we found just what we were searching for...a repair shop that charges only $25 to diagnose the problems and $40 labor (including the $25) to do the repair.
He assured me he could fix the laptop (Whew!) and he believed my desk top problems were only with the monitor. He recommended that I hook my computer up to my flat screen tv, which we recently got during an awesome after Christmas sale at Costco, to be sure.
So here I am...blogging and checking email and doing my banking on my computer with a 32" monitor.
After a few minutes, I start to get a headache. Geeez!
We are waiting for the guys at the repair shop to get in some refurbished monitors. I can get a great deal there. Soon hopefully.
I have been using my son's itouch to read your blogs.
The other extreme completely....and it impossible to comment.
I hope to be back to my old bloggy self again soon.
Thanks for so many sweet comments on yesterdays post.
I'll be sending David's mom a copy too....she will find comfort in all the nice things you had to "say".
Enjoy your weekend.
