His Computer Drinks Decaf.
The moment after I hit 'publish' on my last blog, I went to set my coffee cup down on the table. Instead of staying in the upright position, like a good coffee cup would have, it fell sideways.
Towards Chris' laptop.
Which now does not work.
Aaaand "Warranty won't cover accidents" blah blah blah blah why the heck did we spend so much money on a warranty if it only covers the company's faults?
I know it's just a computer, but I can't shake this feeling of extreme guilt. I am beating myself up. I'm weepy. I'm still hanging onto the hope that we will be able to recover what was on the laptop- family pictures, all of Chris' business records and music files... and hundreds of dollars of software that was included on the laptop for free... software that I used for my business but will probably not have access to anymore.
I am tired and sad and feeling like I could have done without the last couple of days. Ezra is playing kickball with the tattered remains of my patience, and I'm wishing I could just curl up in a ball and SLEEP for the next week... maybe two.
Now, go back-up all of your important files. They don't make coffee mugs like they used to.
