What’s the old saying? No good deed goes unpunished? Yeah, I’m kinda there… I was just leaving a comment encouraging my friend Diane of An Extraordinary Day and no sooner did I hit ‘submit comment’ than my two year old decided to dive over my legs (which were extended out on an ottoman) and face plant into the carpet. I had my laptop on my lap and a cup of hot tea in one hand when this death-defying feat of hers occurred. Naturally I scrambled to set my tea down and tossed the laptop aside to rescue my little acrobat who was shocked at the result of her performance. Thankfully she is ok but sadly my laptop is in the ICU. It seems that the sloshing cup of tea sloshed right onto my keyboard… I guess my Mac doesn’t like a cuppa hot tea as much as I do.
Thank goodness for my mother. Seriously, I do NOT know what I would do without her. She has not only leant me a laptop (that she keeps in her recording studio!) to get me through while my laptop is in “dry out” mode but she is also tinkering with it to see if we can salvage anything. She’s actually quite talented with fixing computers even though she has no training – just an interest and a knack, both of which I will take right now, thank you very much!
So, the show must go on and fortunately with my loaner laptop, it can! I even got to play with PicMonkey to add text to my photos. I normally use Photoshop but alas the loaner laptop doesn’t have it – so we make do, don’t we! It was a really easy program to use and I can see why it’s so popular!
When life hands you lemons, I simply refuse to be beaten! I just squeezed them right into my sweet tea – which is sitting on a completely different table from this machine! 🙂
Please say a prayer for my computer – fortunately I do have backups – Hallelujah! – but still, I’m praying I don’t have to buy a new Mac laptop – eeek! That is so not in the budget right now!
I mentioned that my mom has a recording studio (in her house, so fun!) – want to see & hear some of her fun recordings on YouTube? Check them out here! There’s lots of Phantom of the Opera duets but my favorite is this cover of The Mummer’s Dance. My mom, sister and I all love to sing. My sister is actually recording an album in Los Angeles as I type! I’ll definitely share news about that once it’s available!
