What a way to start the week!

I can barely see what I am typing. I have my laptop connected to our T.V. But still it is very blurry. To make a very long and sad story short Jorge somehow broke the LCD screen on our Mac laptop. My "lil" sister, Rachel, was babysitting the boys and when she went to put Miguel down for bed, she came out with Jorge looking at the computer saying, "uh oh." I thought for sure that since it was Hardware it would be covered under our warranty.. but no such luck. I took it to the Apple store this morning and was quoted $603.00 to fix the LCD light/screen.

Basically when you look at my screen it looks like broken glass and an array of funky colors, but the computer contents are fine. So our only option, right now since we don't have $600 for a repair on the computer, is to hook it up to the t.v. We can also buy a less expensive monitor to connect our laptop to. Oh joy!

Anyway. between the coffee and the computer.. Im ready for a vacation! ;-)

Your life is so full of Toddlerish stories!

Go check the thrift store for a monitor that works...that might help you a bit.

Welcome back!

Oh how discouraging! Last year the shoulder strap on my laptop carrying bag came undone and down went the laptop. The screen went funky, and then out. I had to hook it up to another monitor for awhile until we could replace it. I though $340 was bad! May, may, Mac's are much more expensive not only to buy but to repair!

I'm so sorry you are having to go through all this right now.

BTW, what's the latest on the book? The last I heard was you were trying to raise the money to have it published. Is that still the status?

yeppers.. Marsha.. that is still the status. I could come up with a three page "proposal" of my book and spend a lot of time trying to get agents to look at it, but I don't have the time right this moment to do that. We'll see what happens.

And yes.. Mac's are too expensive. Worth it on some levels.. but this repair is ridiculous.
