Broken Computer + Homework + Multiple Naps Daily = Bad Blogger

Oh well.  I mentioned in my last post that our computer up and died one day.  Because it was the motherboard, we opted not to get it fixed, since that costs practically what it costs to just buy a new one.  Luckily, we were able to find a great deal on a new one, thanks to a student discount (gotta milk it while I still can!).  It's on it's way, and because it has a humongous amount of storage, I will never have to hear Tony give me grief about the amount of pictures I have saved to the computer!

We were also able to save the hard drive from our old computer. Tony followed some tutorials online to get it out (it took a while and there was a lot of banging), and we bought an external hard drive shell from Amazon (this one).  Basically it allows you to use a real computer hard drive as an external one that can just be plugged into a USB port like any other external one (it's just bigger and a little more fragile).  I was so glad none of our files were missing, since it had been a while since I had backed up my pictures and documents.  And now we have a gigantic hard drive backup.  We then recycled the rest of our old computer.  

So while the fact that it died sucks and we had to spend some money we weren't planning on spending, at least we were able to salvage some parts out of the deal!  

I promise shower, nursery, and other pics soon!

  1. Well think of it like this, at least it died now instead of right after Harper was born and you hadn't saved photos and it affected the hard drive. So it might have been a blessing in disguise to get a new computer and bigger hard drive right before the biggest event of your life takes place :)
