don't know what you've got...

...til it's gone. It's true.

My Macbook died this week. And our Dell laptop has been in a coma for a few months now. I haven't done anything with the Dell because, well, I had the MacBook! Now, we're computer-less and I'm doing my first blog post ever from my iPad. It's not too bad, but I'm not used to the keyboard so it's slowing me down a bit. And instead of posting about our DWW reunion BBQ tonight (because I have nowhere to download photos to), I'm posting about this - complete with NO photos because I don't really take photos with my iPad!

I've been a bit lost without a computer. I guess I've taken it for granted that we've always had one for the past xx years! So earlier this week when I left work thinking I'd get some work done from home, it didn't even dawn on me that I had nothing to work from until I saw my non-working laptops.

I miss my Macbook. The iPad is serving me well, but it's not the same. I can't wait until we can breathe life back to the MacBook (cross fingers that all data is intact!).

Coupled with this loss is exhaustion. When my parents came to visit and we gave up our room so they didn't have to take the room upstairs, who would have known I would lose sleep over it?!

The first night I crawled into the double futon that makes up our guest bed I thought, "How did Bri and I ever sleep together in this bed?!". Bri sleeps diagonally in a double bed. So that means I don't sleep very well at all! And then toss Josh into the mix at 5am and you have a recipe for complete exhaustion!

It's been almost a week and though I love having Mom and Dad stay with us, I am SO looking forward to getting back on our room and to full nights of sleep!
