Call 911, My Computer is…

My computer is in the hospital for about a week.  She needs triple bypass surgery and possibly a new kidney. I feel like sitting at her bedside in ICU, holding her hard drive in my hands, and whispering life saving code.

She went in several days ago and sadly, I feel as though I lost a portion of my brain.  My computer runs my life.  This is a testing of my faith.  I am Peter standing on the water about to look down.

Ok.  So maybe I dramatized my separation anxiety a bit, but it’s unsettling not checking my email every hour.  If you email me with earth shattering news, I may not be found!

FringeMan has a computer – the great grandpappy of my laptop.  It rests on an old desk in the little space off our bedroom.  I can’t sit in that room for more than ten minutes or I run the risk of frostbite.  There’s no heat in there.

Besides, all my bookmarks are in ICU with my computer.  If you don’t hear from me for a week, you were bookmarked.

I am trusting the doctor, FringeMan’s friend, with the past six years of my life in photos.  Turns out my pictures take up more real-estate than both kids, their toys, my clothes, and FringeMan’s guns.  I had to buy my pictures a home of their own – an external hard drive.

Yes, I trust the good doc.  He is the computer man for the school district and he knows my laptop well.

I just love her more.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes.  I’ll tell you all about my birthday soon.  It was a very, very good day.  And, it only snowed a little. 😉

    oh goodness computers scare me. today mine started beeping manically and then turned off. when i turned it on there was a blue screen. i asked around the office and all the boys nodded knowingly and murmured ‘blue screen of death;’ as if this was an actual thing. i turned it off and on again. seems to be working 🙂

    Computer problems come from the devil. I feel your pain. I had some bloggy/computer issues last week and they wiped me slam out. The mental stress is almost unbearable.

    So sad to hear of this illness in your family. My best wishes to your PC for a speedy and full recovery. My 9000 pics and 9000 songs are all on an external HD….and if it ever decided to croak…..I would drown myself in the lake! 🙂
