Uh-oh!

I think it was just last month that I wrote about how Mom had destroyed her laptop by spilling water on it. Well, after spending quite a lot of money to fix it, she opened it this morning to find the screen cracked. And this is her third cracked screen within a two year period. We think the laptop may have dropped off of the recliner onto the carpeted floor when Cookie jumped down from the recliner. It was in it's protective case...but it wasn't the super-duper thick case that Mom bought after the last cracked screen. The one she swore she would use faithfully, until it arrived from Amazon and she felt how heavy the thing was....

Mom is feeling extremely stupid, careless and persecuted by the bad Macbook karma fairy. She also wishes she had asked Camie's mom (of Camie's Kitties) who wrote a comment saying that she had insurance covering her computer. Mom now really wants to know where does one get computer insurance. Is it part of home insurance? She asked our local Mac genius at the Mac store in the mall and he said that maybe it was conected to making the computer purchase with a credit card that offered such insurance. Now that would have been a smart move.

Mom hasn't figured out what she's going to do exactly about buying a new computer or having the old one fixed. Needless to say, we may not be around at all for the next week. Mom's going on vacation from work and that's where her current computer is located. Waaaaaaaaaaaaah!

There is so much to post about and so little time. Mom will post again tomorrow to tell of happier news. Right now we have to get going. Hugs and headbutts to all of our friends. We hope to convince her to just get that new computer, right now.

I am so sorry to hear that. I don't know about insurance. I know that we have had a warrantee on the computer. Also my human did have a home owners policy on her computer (she added it as a "rider" because she had so much equipment) and so they covered it when her computer was stolen.

I do not know if that is what they meant or not? OF course, you know, if you make a claim on your HO insurance they will raise your rates for 5 years (like it is our fault we were robbed.).

Wowe! We are glad we got a desktop computer!

Tyler - we are sorry to hear about your computer. The insurance we got came with the computer. Mom bought both the extended service warrenty, and the insurance in case something happened like she was stupid with it. We don't know about Mac's and whether they have something like that or not.

We are glad you like the blankets. We are so sorry that they took a lot longer than we said they would. Mom has been coming home from work and falling asleep. We haven't even had the chance to visit most of our friends.
