So sorry...

I am still computer-less. Join me on another computer rampage...
Remeber my last rampage? About the process of buying a computer? Now here's my new one about replacing a computer...
First, I called my insurance agent. Who told me to take it to a "computer place" and make sure it was ruined. (Because clearly, I am an idiot, and can't tell when my computer no longer functions at all...)
The first place I take it wants $45 to look at it... not to fix it... to decide if it needs fixed. (Which, as I have already pointed out... I know it cannot be...) So I leave that place...

I find... perfect computer guy in cuba (that is cuba, ny; not cuba the country...) who will give me a free estimate and mail me a paper estimate to give to my insurance agent right away, so I don't even have to wait till I can manage to get back down to cuba... That was three weeks ago... And he has supposedly mailed me two estimates... wonder if when I get down there to pick up my dead laptop, if he'll tell me he mailed that too... seems likely doesn't it??

So now I am off to call my insurance agent, plead my case, and hopefully end up with a check in a few weeks in order to buy new computer...

Been gone...

So I got the news today.
My laptop is officially dead.
Good bye laptop.
I left it plugged in during a lightning storm a week or two ago.
Thus my non-existance on blogger.
So I must claim it on my insurance and go insearch of a new computer.
Sigh.

It's been a rough few weeks.

We also buried a fellow fireman on Monday. I didn't know him personally, but my husband and all my fellow firemen in the company did. (I haven't been a member long...) So for me, the saddest part was seeing the men who I consider to be some of the strongest guys ever, literally break down infront of me. It makes me consider... if something happens to my husband... will they be as strong as I would need them to be for me??? This fireman left behind a wife and toddler son... in case him dying in a tragic accident wasn't sad enough...

In other news...

My brother Tim is a Marine stationed over in California. He is waiting deployment to Afganistan sometime in September. He was bit by an awful dog in the K-9 unit this week.

Like I said...

It's been a rough week.

I have been sewing though...

Just no pix yet.

Anyways, you probably won't be hearing from me for another two weeks as I am headed off to work at a camp. I'm gunna be the camp nurse. Hopefully this will give me a reprieve and some distance to these last few weeks.

Signing off...
