Oops... I did it again

Well. Not like Britney... However, I did spill tea. On my laptop. Again. Yes, this isn't the first time I've had this little situation. This past summer I spilled an entire glass of iced tea on my poor laptop.  I pulled out the battery and used my hair-dryer to dry it out and stuck it under the radiator overnight and prayed with all my might that it hadn't died forever. And miraculously it came back to life. (Cue happy dance with Lucy and the promise to my husband that I'll never drink tea around my laptop again.)

Then Christmas Eve I was walking toward the desk with a mug of tea in my hand, and I tripped over little Henry and, like a slow-motion scene where you want to close your eyes, my mug flew out of my hand and doused my poor laptop in tea yet again. I knew the routine this time... I pulled out the battery, dried it out and stuck it under the radiator. I didn't even want to hope for it to come back to life a second time... That would be too lucky,  right??

Well after church and a Christmas Eve Enchilada dinner at the Reisfelts', Nick and I held our breath as we turned on my computer.  It came back to life again! I'm so happy! Nick stayed up late Christmas Eve to back up all my pictures and files to his computer. "Just in case."

You should probably know something about me. I'm reallllllly bad with electronics. I try and be super careful and somehow it just doesn't happen. I've lost one Blackberry and a digital camera (with our honeymoon pictures still on it- sob) in the movie theater. In college a shelf fell on my laptop and broke the keyboard. I accidentally sent my phone to college with my sister and had to have it mailed back. And now this whole laptop incident... twice. Moral of the story: Don't buy me electronics, and if you do, make sure you get one heckofa warranty.
