Honey! I’m Home!

It was a good trip. I got to see Wow on Mother’s Day and her birthday (it was a milestone!) and she got to spend some time with her sister.

As I mentioned before, I broke my laptop while I was out visiting. I wasn’t worried, because I had the foresight to get the insurance on it. Right? Apparently not.

When I went to the blue and yellow computer store to show the “nerds” what I had done to my computer, they pulled up my file and as luck would have it, I had not, in fact, bought the right type of insurance. I bought some hardware insurance. I am positive the salesgirl sold me the accidental, but it’s been over 30 days, it’s not on my receipt, so whaddya gonna do? (p.s. don’t cry, it doesn’t work)

The out of pocket expense to repair the LCD screen was more than what I paid for it, 32 days ago. Since I couldn’t return it and it was obviously no good anymore, they did refund the money I had paid for the original insurance, to use toward either repair or a new one.

So yes, I am now the proud owner of a 17 inch beautiful blue Toshiba paperweight, and a brand new 15 inch blue Toshiba laptop.

What I did learn over the 32 days, was that bigger is not always better and it is definitely heavier. I learned my lesson and got a smaller one. Of course, I made sure to speak loudly and clearly at the register, “I WANT THE ACCIDENT INSURANCE” .

So that was my day yesterday. What have you been up to while I was gone?
