ew. So my computer is broken. I cannot connect to the internet. So yesterday I spent an hour on the phone with HP and the bottom line? I may need a new motherboard. A $400 motherboard. And... they don't know for sure if it's under warranty. (Ashley... thanks for spreading the love) The irony of all of it? The guy said I could buy an extended warranty for about $400. And my computer would be covered for four years. Isn't it a little strange that the part costs as much as the warranty? Interesting.

So.. we shall see. In the meantime, I'm stuck using hubby's computer. It's all fine and dandy when he's not home.. but it may not work when he's home. We stink at sharing a computer, which is why we each have our own.

Hubby, the computer guy who likes to say he's not a computer guy, hasn't had a chance to look at it. Hopefully he can work his magic and she'll be good as new. If not, we will have to check our Best Buy warranty. Hopefully that one is longer.

On a different note... I'm done with week one of summer school! That means only three left! Of course, this week seemed like a month... so that may mean the next three weeks feels like three months! I'm hoping that when my classes are done (in less than two weeks!) I'll feel a little less stress. Isn't summer for a teacher supposed to be relaxing?

No big plans for the weekend. We talked about going tubing in Harper's Ferry. We'll see. The cuz has a friend in town, so it will depend on what they want to do. Hopefully I can be outside a bit. I'm one pale gal.
