When a Blogger's Computer Dies....

I honestly do not know what to do with myself. Our computer has been out of comission for nearly 24 hours. I am on the verge of a breakdown...

Exhibit A: My facebook status this morning:

Stuck in our pigsty with two babies under two, and no car, no tv, and no computer. Charlotte Perkins Gilman could write a story about it.
I know, it is such a "first-world problem." And I should probably use it as an opportunity to grow/learn/explore/etc.
One thing I am definitely learning? Blogging is such a part of my identity. And I'm not sure what I would do without it...

Here is to hoping that the computer can be raised...
from the dead.

Caroline, that's terrible! Wish I could come rescue you, or at least let you use my computer when your babies are napping! Hope it gets fixed soon!

Oh no! i am so sorry, I hope that it gets fixed soon! It is amazing how much we do on our computers.
I hope you enjoy your time and find something fun to do in the meantime.
Enjoy your weekend!!

Yikes! Good luck. Hopefully you can at least have some nice weather and enjoy the break from technology.

Ew, I'm sorry! I can relate - the same thing happened to me last summer when my computer got a virus. I was out of commission for over a month (and then my computer got stolen, but that's another story....)

Good luck! Hope you're back in business soon!

I'm sorry to hear that! What a stressful time to loose the PC (during school!). Hope it's up and running soon!
