It took THREE freaking months to get the laptop back. I bought Accidental Damage coverage from Safeware. Took them 2 months to get it back to me, and when they sent it back UPS lost it for 3 days and I had to drive an hour to the UPS center and pick it up myself. Then I opened the box and they sent it back with a broken A/C adapter! So Toshiba said they'd send me one in 6 days - a month later, I finally got the a/c adapter. oh, and it now has malware, that it didn't have before, and there's a problem with the hard drive. Toshiba told me to send it to them to fix it. Uh, no thanks. I'm done. So after three months I finally have a functioning (although, somewhat slow) computer, and when I have the emotionally energy to deal with it again, I'll have a tech guy come to the house and look at it. Tip - Don't buy Safeware insurance. Spend the extra money and go with Best Buy's plan. I won't be shipping out a laptop for repairs ever again.
And it's not just the laptop. EVERYTHING is breaking or getting lost. In one week, the dishwasher broke, the disposal broke, the vacuum broke, the washing machine flooded the entire front of my house. My cell phone is half functioning (Lincoln threw it in the bathtub... see a running theme here?.) My camera is lost, spilled coffee on my GPS, and now there's liquid damage on the screen. I also narrowly avoided a wreck the other day swerving to miss the car that pulled right in front of me, by an inch, and then 2 hours later, hydroplaned and flew right off a back road, narrowly avoiding the massive ditch on one side and then finally stopping inches from the edge of a 3 foot drop off on a gravel path. I'm telling you, I'm just a mess. It seems like right now, whatever can go wrong, will. I think I'm a nice person. I try to do as much good for other people as I can. But my Karma is bad right now. I don't know what I did. Upset the tech gods or something. The other day someone said to me, well, everything happens in threes.... but I'm on like my 5th set of 3 right now!
So, even though I know I shouldn't say it.... I will regret it, and I'm sure something else will go wrong with this computer once I say this. I'm going to take my chances and say one more time, I'm going to get better at this blogging thing.... (I think I just heard lightning strike somewhere nearby...)
Yes, this is Kaden blowing his sister up with a cannon. The kids are a little morbid!
Tower of the Americas - the Restaurant is at the top of a 750-ft tower and it spins while you eat. The kids loved it.
Oh my gosh, he's really just the cutest thing ever.
That's me actually reading. I thought I'd forgotten how to!
