This Tuesday is Really a Monday

So my short vacation went well. It was after we got back it crashed. As in really crashed! Monday My 18 month old almost $800 laptop warned me my internal battery was bad. No biggie it is almost always plugged in. Then it wont turn on. :( Colin says it might have erased my hard drive, so I flipped out. His tech friend calmed me down and said I should just need to get a new battery, at this point I think it is just the battery.

So today (Tuesday) I take it into the geek squad....apparently it is also my charger in addition to the port the charger goes into. Great! Just what I wanted to hear, he told me flat out it will cost more to fix than me buying a new one! So he suggested me buying a charger ($86 with tax), taking it home and backing up my files so I can figure out what I want to do. I have 30 days to return the charger, 30 days to figure this out because my port will go out and then I wont be able to use it as all, I will just have an expensive paperweight. So tomorrow I am taking it to my dads tech guy at work, he said he will see what he can do for some beer. My dad says he rebuilds computers so I can hope. I can definitely give him some beer, lots of it! Either way I am never buying the nicer model with more memory because if your computer wont turn on what good does it do you.

I have my old desktop (about 7 yrs old) and it has no issues other than none of our newer programs work on it because it's version of windows is too old. :( I can't even input my business files on it. Right now I am stressed and we have furnace people coming this week for estimates on a new furnace....poof there goes all our money! What an awful month!

I also have to add that the dog threw up on me when I got home from hearing this bad news! I can't wait for November! At least my ballot just showed up so at least I can vote!
