This is how I really feel about my old computer!!!
A week and a half ago, I received a call.
13-year-old daughter: "Mama, somethings going on with the computer, AGAIN."
Me: "What's happening?"
13 y-o: "I don't know, but I can't do anything. It's just... you'll see. But Mama, how am I going to type my homework?"
I gave a big sigh, and wanted to pound my head!
The computer wouldn't do anything! I couldn't even start it from safe mode. I was so frustrated! I thought about taking it to the computer doctor, yet again. I even called them.
In the past year, I've spent a boat load of money fixing that computer. Mr. Husband often reminded me, I could have had a new one. We've paid $200 here, $150 there, and not just once or twice, reviving, resuscitating, and putting it on life support. The exact number of times, I care NOT to share. That's just the past YEAR, and doesn't include the past few years. Seriously, I could have had two computers!
Thirteen y-o daughter reminded me, just how old that computer is. We've had it for more than 8 years. It's time for that computer to be laid to rest!
Saturday, Mr. Husband took me to buy a brand spanking new computer! I did the new computer dance in the store, and embarrassed my kids. But hey, I was excited. Right now, I am writing this blog from, *singing* 'my new com-puuuuuu-teeer!'
Thanks Mr. Husband, you rock!
Now, I'm in the process of planning a befitting service and burial for my beloved friend. Notices of the service is forthcoming. We hope you can attend.
