mourning the death of my macbook.

three years ago, for christmas, john gave me a macbook. it had been a really good year for us, we bought a house, we got engaged, his new business venture had taken off… needless to say, really good year. so, he spoiled me that christmas with the one thing I had wanted for a long time. a white macbook.

it was exciting. it was the perfect accessory to my new shiny rock. har har.

fast forward three years. we got married (on 12/31 of that same year). we moved from our beautiful home that I love and rented it out. (luckily, thank god, we have great renters… but I was just thinking today how it’s crazy that at this point, they’ve lived there longer then we did. typical…) we’ve moved three thousand miles. and our business is still afloat, but definitely not where it was three years ago. and best of all. we have a son. a son!

but, I still had my trusty macbook… that reminded me of our beginning. our first christmas, in our first home. well, it died. it technically died last summer… when in a bout of (let’s blame it on pregnancy hormones) rage I threw it across the room and the battery popped out… and wouldn’t go back in. luckily, I didn’t completely destroy it… the power cord still worked. but if you know macs, you also know that the power cord has to be more cute than functional… so it’s magnetic and if you move it the wrong way, or it’s hooked on something… you’re gonna lose power.

long story short, it was painfully annoying. but I still clung to it… it was the last remnant of our life in california… and I wanted to hang onto it as long as I could. but… it didn’t have the same feelings I did apparently. thanks macbook, I see how you are.

hello, cyber monday. I can’t afford a new macbook… 1000 bucks?! are you insane? not with a new baby anyway… I was hoping they would have a killer sale on monday, but they don’t have to. they are apple.

so, I decided to tone it down a couple notches and get a netbook. I found a samsung. (I love samsung. we have a samsung refrigerator, washer and dryer, and tv upstairs)… they are so nice looking! lol… totally not about practicality around here apparently.

it arrived today. and let me tell you, it’s precious. I’m coming to you live from it right now. it has the feel of a macbook because the screen has rounded edges and the keyboard is chiclet style just like mac. it was a great 750bucksless alternative… so, I told john this is his gift to me for christmas… and I could tell by the look on his face he felt relieved… apparently, I’m not the easiest person to shop for…

so, I suppose a part of me has finally said goodbye to california. it’s time to accept this new life and move on. only took me three years. I guess it could’ve been worse. I miss it still… but life is here. a crazy. awesome. life.

and it’s finally starting to fit.

 I know this pic is weird…was just messing around with the goodies on the new pc. yep, I’m officially a pc. toodloo.

    as i’m typing this on my iMac, the whole story definitely hurt my heart. but i’m glad you love your new PC {{choke, spit, cough}} & i’m sorry to hear about your macbook! sad day! :)

  2. hahahah amy. you crack me up. I feel the same way about pc. trust me, when it’s a tad more practical (as in, def not in the near future…) I will get a new mac! I love them too much!

    oh and p.s. I totally have camera envy. kind of hoping to see how it works out for you :)
