Had a very nice day today …
The weather was BeAuTiFuL.
Got some crafty things done & started a couple little projects spurred by searching on Pinterest (Soooooooo addicting by the way!!!!). I spied several different types of button bracelets & own one as well…leading me try my own spin on them utilizing my large stash of buttons & ribbon. They didn’t really turn out quite as I would have liked but they’ll do for now.
Got some cleaning & organizing done…
Then decided on an spur of the moment sleep over with B. Shane… which is certainly bringing the biggest of smiles to my face. Love the nephew ro pieces! Really nice having some one on one time with the oldest of the little sister’s 3 boys.
I decided to hop on the laptop real quick & check for job postings when I had my “Oh, CRAP!” moment. The laptop sounded like it turned on… but the screen was black. CRAP! It stayed black.
Completely blank screen.
Tried restarting by powering down… BLACK SCREEN.
CRAP! CRAP! CRAP!
Can not see a thing …
So, my friends I find myself without a laptop again … grrrrrr!
As I sat here clearly upset & frustrated, the nephew said with a big smile , “It’s okay, Aunt Mae. You have your phone still.”
“Yes, B. Shane. You are correct.” I replied smiling back.
The 10 year old’s point of view brought a smile to my face… even when I was (am) steaming mad & angry over the stupid laptop the boy snapped me out of it.
Does it completely suck that I’m without a laptop again? Yes.
But, I do have most everything backed up except my recently updated resumes, cover letters & pictures. (Lesson learned by the last laptop fiasco)
The laptop will be replaced someday … not in the immediate future, but in time. Once again I am reminded just how much I rely on technology … entirely too much.
Moments like this though…Hanging out with the nephew & the smiles that came along with it can’t be replaced.
Thanks for the smiles B. Shane! More than made up for my, “Oh, crap!” moments.
The boy is now sleeping as I am “painstakingly” typing this post on my android.
Looking forward to more smiles as we head off to Dunkin Donuts for breakfast in the morning; finally making use of a gift card I received as a Christmas gift last year! Then off to mom’s house to visit with my aunt & her fiance who are visiting from Michigan.
No pinning, stumbling or spotting for me for the time being! But as the nephew reminded, I still have my phone so I won’t be left completely in the stone ages!!!
Could you survive without your laptop/computer? Who has the ability to snap you out of an “Oh, crap” moment when you need it?
