In Memoriam

It's gone. It was fine one minute and then I got off the phone and noticed the blank stare. I thought it was sleeping. Later, as I was finishing dinner, I thought I'd put on a little music. That's when I noticed. The death. Quiet. Unnoticed.

My dear friend is gone, along with everything on it. Though Nathan says he can get everything for me.

Ok, enough drama. My laptop died. Again. It just shut itself off and wouldn't come back on. Nathan already is laptop shopping for me. This means I have to save my money. This means I can't quit babysitting like I've been thinking about doing.

Wait! I had this issue once--it was a connection that needed to be welded. Cost a little bit to get fixed, but it is fixable.

Or it's the motherboard--which isn't. Good luck laptop shopping. Or you could always get a netbook instead--they're less expensive and do about as much. Just a thought.

When I find the money tree I am looking for I will be sure to send some onto you!

(This as I head back to work tomorrow...sigh)

Hang in there!

I don't know which is worse, your computer dying or you not being able to quit babysitting. I hope you are able to get the computer working again for not too much money so you can quit. I babysat for 6 months. That is as much as I could handle.
