Oh no I hope you get your laptop soon. I hate computer problems. They are the worst and oh so expensive. GRRR is right.

Julie,

I have a solution? www.computerannex.com

You can find a refurbished computer on line, order it, and have it delivered to you. We just bought one for our teen going to college and it cost $300.00 for last years lap top with all updated software and parts replaced.

Hope it helps!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I have a great desktop, but have become so addicted to the laptop that I rarely ever use it.....

I'm sorry, Julie.. I'd say that things usually come in threes, but since you've already surpassed that number, I'll just keep my big mouth shut. What to talk about... hmmmm. Hey.. have you heard about the fireman who hides dead kittens and parakeets in his coat and tells the kiddies that their pets have run away? Or, no.. wait.. how about the dancer who glued her tights to her toes? Yeah... I know, too crazy to believe, right?

Mighty M said...

Darn!! Hopefully you are DONE with the replacements and repairs for a while!

Lori said...

Yikes, if it's not one thing it's another. I know the feeling :)

Rachel said...

OOOh, am so sorry that you have to share, Scott and I have been sharing since he got "me" the computer over 1 1/2 years ago....why do you think my blogs are so infrequent....lolol.....tough sharing a computer.....easier? showers, cars and doing laundry....computers.....well, there is a fight in that...lolol

Hope that all is well, and that the "puter" thing gets resolved.....and hope you are laughing..... deb

I have a love/hate relationship with my laptop. Tim keeps saying he's gonna buy me a new one but he hasn't yet. I've learned to not hold my breath.

~*Michelle*~ said...

Ugh! I wish I had more to offer in the comfort department...I know the feeling of the "needs/repairs" and a non-existent bank account.

Keep the faith.....I hear there is this Big Guy Upstairs who supplies all our needs.

That stinks. Always seems as if everything breaks all at once.

What a bummer! But this post is funny too! Hope you get your laptop back quickly!!

What happened to the laptop?

Becca~TimeWellSpent said...

Computer problems are so frustrating! I am helpless to fix it myself either, I have to rely on my husband to work the problem out for me. I've often said without him I'd be back in time by 20 years:)

Sorry you're having computer issues! Hopefully they are fixed or in the process!! It is so frustrating and financially draining to have unexpected expenses. I know the feeling!
