Death of a Computer

MY computer to be exact.  I think it's just the screen that was affected by the fall and it looks like a rainbow has exploded on the screen.  I would LOVE to be able to blame this on my five year old and perhaps to save face, I should. Isn't that what good mother's do?? 

I was too distraught to take a picture of mine
but this is pretty much the gist.
It was so ridiculous.  I was sitting on the couch, getting ready to start teleworking, and I had my laptop positioned on the arm of the couch.  I have been very successful with this set up for as long as I have had my computer.  Well, maybe not successful as much as lucky.  I heard a funny buzzing sound and realized that I left my phone in my room and the alarm was going off.  I jumped up to get the phone because I didn't want it to wake Alex and that's when my computer hit the floor.  UGH.  Just so you know, Alex was already awake and my laptop was sacrificed for nothing. 

Anyway, I went to the gym last night and did thirty minutes on the elliptical.  It was a pretty good workout and I was glad to get some blood pumping through my sore muscles from the workout with Jess.  The workout we did was a lot different from what I usually do.  At one time, we were just holding the locust pose for thirty seconds at a time. 
I guess I have a weak back because I am feeling it today!  If you think I am being a baby, try it.  If you still think I'm a baby, OK, I probably am.  It was definitely refreshing to do a different type of workout and use muscles that usually get neglected in my running routine.  I will definitely incorporate some of that workout into my cross training but nothing feels like I worked out hard like logging some miles on the Garmin.

Buy a new computer or buy a new monitor?

If I did get a new computer, what would you suggest??


  1. locust pose! that looks intense! I recommend a MAC... so much better than a PC and they last a lot longer too.

  2. I wish I knew more about computers to be certain, but honestly with the way technology updates, I would advise just getting a whole new comp if you can afford it.

    Also, I love locust pose. It's plank that does me in!


I love, love, love comments :) Let me know what you think!
