Holy cow! I almost had a heart attack last night when my laptop shut down and would no longer charge. It is my only functioning computer right now and I am afraid I would go insane without it. It was such a huge ordeal that I got the boys dressed early this morning and drove an hour to the nearest Best Buy to visit with the Geek Squad.
Almost in tears and on the verge of hyperventilating, I begged the geek (hey, that's what they have dubbed themselves) behind the counter to please fix my computer right then and there. I was so terrified that he would tell me he would have to keep it for a few weeks to run diagnostic tests on it - I would miss Flashback Friday and the Cookie Swap and on top of that I couldn't finish ordering birthday supplies and Christmas gifts and...I'm pretty sure I was going to lose it.
Then said geek simply switched out my power supply cord and sent me on my pathetic way.
Whew, that was a close one!
