With much anticipation, I picked up my repaired laptop. The damage was covered by our insurance, which lessened the financial blow significantly. It now has a new battery, display, logic board, connector and plug. It works so well!
While I was without "my machine," I did not post much. We have a desktop computer, but it didn't feel right. I am now catching up with our life documenting. When I started this blog 6 years ago, I wanted it to serve as my memory. I noticed I was forgetting much of the little moments. It is hard to believe I have written about our life for so long. Initially I restricted access to family, but opened it up when members of our extended family could not read it (password issues). Once I opened the blog I included more of what we do. I am so glad I do. This little place helps me remain centered. It reminds me of what is truly important in our lives. As someone who doesn't scrapbook, I appreciate this space. It is a journal and record. It is our life.
