Redefining the computer crashing.....

I'm back. Sorry if you missed me, sorrier if you didn't...

view details
My computer crashed...literally. Fell to the ground. Ciara had gotten a large touch screen computer through Dream Come True and it has been really nice for us to use as well. It sits on top of the desk they gave her. I promise I didn't push it, I just sat at the desk and down it went. It cracked. I figured we were in for a lengthy wait and a pricey bill for it to be fixed. As of tonight, my husband is an amazing computer repairman. I don't know how he did it, but here it is, back together and running. The thing about times like this is that I can't do a single thing to be helpful and he can decide when he's got a few minutes to take a look and bang it out. It is always a test of patience for me. Most things are.

I often wonder how people decide, in this day and age of "how to_____" on youtube and Google, when they are going to tackle jobs themselves and when they are going to spend the money to get the job done. I could get so many things done on my list if I could just make a call and pay a bill for someone with the right abilities to just go to it. Few people can live by that plan these days, at least I imagine we are not alone.

I'd love to hear from your experience!

For now, Dear Husband is my hero!
