Can't catch a break

I just can't catch a break here *sigh* I have stuff to share...I do, I really do...unfortunately it is all on a computer that doesn't work...

I am a laptop computer kind of girl. Can't live without my computer wherever I go. I bought my first laptop when I was a senior in high school with money from a part time job. That laptop was with me through thick and thin through college. Many term papers, IMs, e-mails and 6 years later it died on me...but it was good and I loved that laptop (It was a toshiba by the way) Fast forward to my newest laptop. This laptop is barely 2 years old and has caused me more headaches than the other laptop EVER did. From the beginning the battery never lasted as long as it should have when it was unplugged. It also overheated very easily. About 6 months ago it crashed on me for no reason and I learned my lesson about backing everything up. Right after that the power cord broke--actually cracked in half! Who knew a new power cord was worth $70....but I had to have it. It helped, but the new power cord only worked half the time and only in certain positions...for example for the last few weeks it only worked if I had 3 CD cases with a pillar candle sitting on the cord where it goes into the laptop. CRAZY. Well....sad to say the computer is now dead. I was told it was the mother board...or something like that. I am so not a computer person at all. Basically I can't charge the battery so I can't use my computer or get the files I need off of it (Did I say I had learned my lesson???? oops ;) ) I will NEVER ever again buy a computer made by HP...their printers are nice, but laptops not so much!!!

There is no good way to end this story...it will be a long time before I can afford another computer and yet I don't know how to function without one!! I will try to keep updating and sharing on my blog though...I have some really cute cards and a couple of altered tins that I am dying to share!
