So as many of you may remember, I sent my computer off to Apple because the case had cracked. It cracked within a month of owning it and when we drove an hour to the nearest Apple store in August, the gentleman in the store acknowledged that it’s a quality issue that has come up with my version of MacBook and he opened a ticket for repair. I had to wait until I got a hard drive and could back up all the pictures and data on my computer which didn’t happen until the holidays. So we sent it off on Thursday with high hopes. Well, after waiting all weekend, my computer arrived here this morning and guess what I saw when I pulled it out of the box?
Do you see that crack? It goes all the way across the front. The didn’t fix it. WTF? I almost burst into tears but thankfully I was on the phone with Sean and immediately he flew into action. He’s on the case so I’m going to try not to freak out but I mean, come on!! Ridiculous.
Anyway, I’d like to update you guys with all the goings on ’round here this weekend. Saturday morning we had a plan. We were going to get up early and take all of our Christmas decorations to our storage unit as well as any other misc stuff that has been cluttering up the house. Just so you know, usually what happens after I go to sleep is the puppy wakes me up anytime between 4 and 6am so I go downstairs and let her out after which she and I snuggle on the sofa and sleep for another hour and a half or so. This is a regular occurance and I don’t mind. She’s very snuggly. Well, sometimes while I’m sleeping downstairs with the furry puppy, the human pups sneak into bed with Sean.
Don’t they look sweet? Don’t they look peaceful? We can’t have that now, can we? I try and try in vain to wake them up but all three could sleep next to a roaring freight train and not stir a muscle so desperate measures are called for: Operation Lily.
After that, the boys and I went over to my parents to return a crib we had borrowed while babysitting my niece last year. When we got there, my dad seemed fine. There was no warning of the explosion we were about to experience. I’m not going to get into it because the details don’t matter but he was an asshole to me and to Ryan so we immediately picked up and left. I knew it was bad because my mom kept apologizing. I didn’t want to take them back home on such a sour note so we headed over to the park of my childhood, the one where we played tennis Charlotte last week, and we had FUN!
We walked on the trail and headed down towards a bridge under which I spent countless hours with my sister and our friends playing in the creek. This water was gross then and it’s certainly not any better but I let the boys explore the sandy banks nonetheless. They had such a wonderful time!
It was a beautiful day, in spite of the ugliness we encountered at my parent’s house. The rest of the weekend went well from there. We ate dinner with my sister and BIL, watched a movie and just laughed our butts off basically. Today’s incident with my computer brought me to the abrupt realization that the weekend is indeed over. I’ve got to go to the store and pick up some things but other than that, the boys and I are just going to chill out.
How was your weekend? Man, I missed having my computer! It felt weird being out of touch with everyone!
