My electric personality

My one reader out there (hi, grandma!) may have noticed that I haven't posted much lately. That's because, as my current streak of really really bad luck would have it, I shocked my computer and it died.

True story.

While working on the computer, I stood up from our dining room table, took approximately a step-and-a-half to put Anthony's pacifier back in his mouth (Does that make me a bad mom? I'm new at this.), sat back down at the table and touched my finger to the keyboard (the nerve!). There was a small shock and the entire computer blew up.

Well, not blew up like in the movies. That would at least be dramatic. (But probably would have scared the baby.)

Something internal blew up and there went my beloved MacBook and all its contents. Thanks a pantload, Steve Jobs. Luckily, the geniuses at MacDocs think they saved the info on the hard drive (including pictures of my child that many are beginning to doubt really exists because of the lack of photo evidence), but I won't be able to tell until I get a new laptop. Which should be soon, I hope.

Until then, I'll be putting my "energy" (ha!) into doing this:

That really sucks. Sometimes I hate that we rely on technology so much. I kinda want the old days of keeping photos in an album and thinking electric shock was fun.

You are not a bad mom for putting a binkie in your kids mouth. Binkies are little presents from Heaven.

That is such a bummer. Good news about saving the photos and documents, though.

Nope, not a bad mom at all! Thanks for the update :o)

Oh sad day! Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this hard time. Stay strong.

No, not for the binkie - I can tell you I considered taping it in my kids once in a while - alas, I never did it. Can I tell you that they played the "electric slide" at my wedding and I couldn't even do it. Sad day..... Maybe I wasn't drunk enough.
