I had been seeing the signs. I knew there was a problem, but with the holidays and Christmas shopping I kept hoping that I could baby "it" until after the New Year. I talked to it, babied it, and tried to give it first aid, but last Wednesday it finally gave up. My laptop cord. It was devastating. As soon as I turned on my laptop I knew it had finally given up. I tried all the usual techniques: plugging and unplugging, wiggling the extension, checking the power box. It had just gone on the technology heaven.
I took it down to my favorite computer repair guy and asked him to make sure it was the power cord and not the laptop adaptor before I ordered another cord. He confirmed my diagnosis.
In desperation I ran to a local electronics store, but they wanted me to pay $120 for what I could order online for $45. So, I ordered it and now I am waiting. Waiting. Waiting.
I wanted today's post to be about my sweet nephew's dedication Sunday morning and the precious pics I took. But, I am going to wait until that cord arrives and upload them to my laptop.
For now, I borrowed my hubs' computer to let you know.... I WANT MY LAPTOP BACK! Happy Monday, guys!
