Joys of Computer Problems

I thought I'd post a little update b/c my normal posts will be on hold for awhile. Tuesday evening I noticed hubby's laptop (our only working computer) had smoke coming out of where the cord plugs in. Not good!! I quickly shut it down. Later that night he started it up. It worked fine but plugging it in causes it to shut down. We're hoping it's just the power source but hubby needs to open it up and look around. Meanwhile, we're on an extremely tight budget right now. My computer has been down for a long time b/c it would cost too much to fix it; $50 for the system recovery disk plus whatever an external disk drive would cost (it's a netbook). And that wouldn't even guaranty a fix. I also have an older laptop that stopped working 2+ years ago. We know it's the power source. My dad was suppose to fix it but hasn't gotten to it. We decided to look more into it and found the part on ebay for just $5.10!! You better believe we ordered it! It should be here by the beginning of next week. Hopefully the computer will be up and running sometime next week. Until then, we're computerless. We do have internet on our phones but it has it's limitations. My mom was nice enough to let me borrow her nook so that it wouldn't be a complete pain for me to continue trying to fill daycare spots (most of my advertising is done online). That also made it possible for me to write this post. Thanks mom! So, that's what's going on around here. Also, my blog list doesn't work right on the nook so sorry if I miss something! One more thing, please ignore any typos and misspellings...touch screen and no spell check is not a good combo for me! lol
