The Coffee Cup Disaster of 2012

So yesterday I stood up too quickly while I had a fresh hot full cup of coffee on the table in front of me. Let me clarify to say that I was sitting  in front of my laptop at the time. You can guess exactly what happened next.


I sat helpless for a moment as I watched all the liquid disappear between the keys and down into the computer itself. I was able to turn the computer upside down and drain most of the coffee out but by then my laptop was already shutting itself down. :(

After a one mild panic attack and one frantic phone call to Best Buy I discovered that our repair coverage included hot drink spillage. :) Thank God!!

Sadly, I won't have a computer for at least the next two and a half weeks. (Right now I'm using my MIL's computer for the evening). The good thing is that most of our pictures had already been copied over to our external hard-drive. We were a tad bit worried that those that had not been copied over  might all be gone but they were able to recover them safely!! Go Geek Squad!!

I'll be taking a very un-wanted hiatus for a while. Please forgive me if I'm not reading or commenting for a while. I promise that you inbox will be flooded with messages from me when I get back and caught up!

I am missing everyone already!

Yikes!! What a pain!!! So glad Best Buy covered it and you could save all of your pictures though!!!

Hilary, SO sorry! This happened to me once, but it was with cereal. Boo. ; (

So thankful you are covered though!

Your "What to Say" post was so valid to me. This happens a lot to me, too. People often comment how close our boys are in age, and I want to say, "And I had a daughter in between, too!"

You are not alone, Hilary. I think it was a big step in wearing Caroline's tshirt. I agree with Tristan. Wear it again, and just tell them the simple and sweet truth. You have a beautiful baby girl who is in Heaven.
