Down for the Count

One thing everyone should know about me is that I have the worst luck with computers. They never last longer than a year and they either reach their fatal death from liquid spills, bad motherboards or the occasional destructive virus. Well folks, exactly a year ago I bought my cute pink Sony Vaio and I'm sad to say it somehow got a virus on it.. *cough cough mom*. I think this reaches the total of 5 laptops and 1 desktop in a 6 year span. All hope is not lost though because I managed to do SOMETHING smart and get the Black Tie protection which happened to expire the day I got the virus...Lucky right? So I trekked my way to Best Buy and after getting heckled into putting 2 year Vi-spy and 2 years of Kapersky on my computer, along with a full wipe, it only cost 300$.... Only 300$???? Seriously, Lame! At least I backed up all my pictures!
So now I'm sharing the hubby's laptop until mine is back from the laptop "doctors". :) So if you see less posting, that's why... or maybe it's just because my hubby is home and I can't get enough of him :) I would assume the latter though....



  1. sorry to hear your laptop is fried..but seriously putting the virus on your momma??? w/e... you rarely let me get on the computer while I was there...(hence all your skyping w/hubbers and us journaling)... suprised you didn't send me a bill?? oh yea we forwarding address

    luv you advice (should have called Will he might have fixed it for free over the phone, 2nd a new one for like $200 more...3rd advice....just smile and be glad you have hubbies to use....;)

    miss you guys so much............huggs & sugars

  2. I know the feeling. I have gone through 3 desks tops in 3 years (all used). My laptop is glitchy right now, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed it can make it at least another 6 months until I can afford a new one.

  3. SOrry to hear that Lindsay! I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving...I know you have a lot to be thankful for these days!! ♥ you!

  4. NEWEST FOLLOWER threw a blog hop!

    Nice blog!

  5. omg, I have the same kind of luck when it comes to technology! I just bought a new blu-ray player a few months ago, and it blew out the other night. I'm so happy for you that your husband is finally home safe and sound!! :)

  6. I can totally relate, I am so bad with computers! Since I got my imac I have been extra careful though! Hope you have a nice thanksgiving :) xoxo

  7. Arg laptops are so delicate! Those little things... :/ Hope you get yours fixed speedy quick. I know I have developed a bit of an unhealthy dependence on my laptop... It would suck to get it taken away from me like that :(

    Well anyway, I came across your blog today and not only do I wanna say hey, Happy Thanksgiving! but also that I think your blog is adorable and I love how colorful it is and I'm wondering if you'd like to trade buttons? :)
