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.

Yay! Comments are back! And I feel your frustration with computers...our "family" computer has been dead now for the last 6 weeks - I refuse to spend one more dime on it. It's driving the kids crazy, but as long as my laptop works, I don't care. I'm SUCH a mean mom.
