You know those times when you wish you could turn back time?  Even just go back 30 seconds???  That was me yesterday.  Let me tell you a little story.

I love my computer.  If my house caught on fire, I would first of course, make sure my family was safe.  I would then run back into the flaming house and get my laptop.  Doing pictures, I am on it all.of.the.time.  I don’t watch tv.  If I have time to kill and nothing to edit (ya right), I am on the internet doing something.

So yesterday, my boys had a haircut appointment.  They hate haircuts.  I think if they had a choice between haircuts and the dentist, they would pick the dentist.  Why they are like this, I do not know.  My good friend Crystal at United Hairlines is our hair gal.  She has done it for as long as I have had highlights.  My whole family uses her.  She gives the kids treats and loves.  Believe me when I say that their hate for haircuts has nothing to do with her!  So I decide to take my laptop with me.  I go out to my car with my laptop and purse in hand.  I don’t have my keys.  So I set my laptop on the hood of my car, and my purse on the ground.  I go inside, find my keys and unlock the car.  I get Cohlee into the car, and the boys are getting into the car as well.  They are fighting like cats and dogs because they are all in bad moods.  I go inside the house to get a couple of things and turn lights and tv off.  My mom calls my cell so I am now talking to her getting into my car.  So I am driving to the end of my street and stop at the stop sign.  I hear a sliding sound.  I suddenly remember my computer is on the hood!!!!!!!  I don’t see the computer sliding, but I don’t see the computer at all.  I put the car in park and walk around to the other side of my car.  There sits my computer in the street.  I am freaking my freak!!!!!  I pick it up.  I get in the car.  I don’t look at my computer because I am afraid.  We get to the salon and I park my car.  My computer is still in one piece, thank goodness.  I open it up and up pops the last thing I was working on!!  Are you kidding me!  It didn’t even skip a beat!  Don’t get too excited.  Its is damaged.  It landed on the corner where you plug the charger in.  So I know that I won’t be able to charge it.  I took it home and backed the whole thing up before taking it to my computer guys house where it is hopefully getting fixed and not breaking the bank.  Please send happy positive thoughts to my laptops way.  While it is in the shop, my little bro has lent me his computer so I can continue to work!  Thanks Patrick!
