Sorry for the lack of posts last week - oops! I am such a terrible blogger.
We had just gotten back in town, and I was trying to play catch-up on EVERYTHING - meal planning, housekeeping, Etsy shops (yes, I said shops... I'll be debuting #2 soon!), and my social life... not to mention, our very first childbirth class! Eek!
Regardless, I'm sorry. I meant to be on my A-Game, and I just wasn't. Anyway, as karma would have it, my MacBook Pro bit the dust on Thursday afternoon.
I was just reading a recipe from Pinterest for the 4th of July, and my screen went black. I could still hear that my computer was on, so I manually shut the power off.
I tried rebooting it, but it just wouldn't load. I got on Dan's MacBook and tried searching for how to fix it... to no avail. I figured he would be able to fix it when he got home, so I waited it out... and then when he spent FOUR HOURS trying to fix it with no luck, we knew it was bad.
I took it to the Apple Store on Friday, and the bad news is that my graphics/video card (something like that) is out... but the good news is that it's a common problem with my year of MacBook, so despite it being out of warranty, they are fixing it COMPLETELY FOR FREE! After our luck with things breaking lately (cars... ugh), this was a very welcome surprise.
Unfortunately, they have to send it in to fix it... but they said I should get it back Thursday or Friday of this week! I am hopeful.. and until then, since I can't work in my shops, I will be going crazy getting Baby Cookie's nursery more set up... or as much as I can.
Have you ever had your computer just stop working?
Have you also had excellent customer care from Apple?
