What a freaking day.
Super-Spawn was up at six this morning and I thought, “Hey, I could get some writing done.” Tralalala, right? Yeah, until I went to turn my computer on.
And it didn’t turn on.
I called tech support and they told me to take it to Geek Squad. My computer is only a few months old…it really shouldn’t have died. Plus it was working fine last night. So I took it to the store, oh but they don’t open until ten.
Fine. We’ll go to the book store.
Aaaaaand, they’re having power problems and are closed.
We waste time in Target and return to the computer place, finally. Oh, but they can’t fix my computer without my receipt. No, they couldn’t look my receipt up either because I paid cash for the computer.
It gets better.
Super-Spawn was acting like he was the spawn of Arch Nemesis as he screamed and attempted to squirm his way out of the stroller. So we high tailed it to the car — I called the tech people back and have to ship my computer to them to be fixed. At my expense. Even though it is still under Warranty.
Yeah, not happy at all.
We went about our day, lunch and a movie with friends. When the movie was out I thought, “Oh, let’s go to the book store across town. I need another book to read and Super-Spawn want’s a Three Musketeers book. Cool. This day will get better.”
Sigh. If only.
On the way to the book store my tire blew out.
Luckily friends were following us and helped change the tire and get air in the spare.
Oh, and did I mention I’m losing ALL my files off my computer when they repair it? Yeah, ALL. Luckily my novels and most pictures are backed up. I will lose the work I did on editing last night, but that’s just a few hours and at least not months worth of sweat and tears.
Still. I cried my little eyes out. What a freaking day! The lesson?
ALWAYS BACK YOUR FILES UP!!!! And have great friends willing to help change a tire in the humid Florida heat.
Forgive me if I grumble about being computer-less for a while. It’s gonna suck.
