What Am I Going To Do????

The other night I fixed some bacon - breakfast for dinner meal - and was sitting down in the living room with my laptop plugged in and sitting on my coffee table when all of a sudden my smoke alarm went off in my kitchen ( I mean, I had finished cooking!) - well I jumped up and went running out to the kitchen to stop it and caught the cord on my foot and pulled the laptop off onto the floor.

I finally got up the courage and opened it up and it looks as though someone had taken a hammer to the screen and broke it up internally. I have to take it to my son-in-law and have him plug it in and see if I've lost my hard drive. Still haven't done it because I'm chicken. the mfg. says they'll fix it for $200. No - I didn't back it up - though I've been talking about doing it - nice!

I've had time for reading and read a wonderful book by Elizabeth Goudge. The Scent of Water. another blogger told me about her. She is an English writer and I have more of her's to read thanks to the public library.

Hope to be up and "running" soon!

Gosh, I'm sorry about your laptop...

But, so glad you are reading Elizabeth Goudge and that you enjoyed The Scent of Water. it's one of my favorites. I'm always thrilled when someone else discovers EG and the beauty of her work.

Hope that laptop gets repaired or replaced real soon.

Argh, I hate losing stuff like that! Hope nothing important has been lost.

But kenady is right-good job you didn't injure yourself!
