IF IT WASN'T FOR BAD LUCK.....

I wouldn't have any luck I sometimes think!

I missed 2 of my favorite linky parties and commenting on my most favorite blogs because

I BLEW UP MY COMPUTER!!!!!

Yes, I actually did,
I spilled a huge glass of iced tea on the keyboard of my laptop.  And as I was scrambling to get all of my other stuff out of the way of the spill, my husband started trying to dry off the computer.  He unplugged it first of course!!  Hours later, he tried putting the battery back in and it started screaming at us!!  Like an alien noise you hear in sci-fi movies.  Then, it stopped.  Cool I thought, no.  It started screaming again, in a different screaming noise!

And we tried the next day and today.  Only to find that it is dead.  *sniffle, tear*.

So I am using one of my children's computer to get this message out to you!!  I didn't run away!!  I am just left with no way to communicate!!

How awful not having a computer has become!  Like being stranded on a desert island.  I hardly know what to do with myself!  It is really weird!!

I should have my new computer tomorrow, and that will rock!!  But, as I said in the beginning of this email "if it wasn't for bad luck.....".  So we will see!

Miss you all!  Hope to be back shortly!!

  5. Good news is you are getting a new computer. Years ago Mr. C blew up his $8000. work notebook by spilling a glass of wine on it. POOF! The very same year he did the exact same thing to a new $7000 computer notebook. No insurance on them in those days. OUCH! Now he is not allowed to have stemmed glasses near computers. Wine in a coffee mug for him. :o) Good week ahead dear...

  6. Oh Daniella,
    So sorry that happened to you. The other day I poured a piping hot cup of tea, and I sat down and accidentally spilled it all over my jeans. It was so hot, I had to immediately take off my jeans but it left a red mark. OOOOUUUCH! I'm happy you get a new computer. YAAAAY!!!
