    So, my parents dropped my MacBook off at the Mac store in London for diagnostics.
    My warrenty expired in October.
    They called this afternoon.
    I need a Logic Board? (I didn't even know I had one)
    The going rate for Logic Boards - $1000!!!!!!
    I swear my heart stopped...I'm glad I was sitting down.
    Then he goes on to tell me that my model of MacBook Pro is covered by an extended Apple warrenty and they were able to find a Logic board and they are going to install it for me!!!!!!!!!
    But there might still be a hard drive issue, they won't know until after they install the Logic board...


    Meanwhile, I'm stuck using the IBM ThinkPad...

    How did your toe fare today? Sucks that you had to turn down work because of it. Keep up the soaks, and you should be feeling less tender by the end of the weekend, though probably sore for a while yet, unfortunately

    OK, lets end it, I don't like this game either
    Yup. Done and done. Time to pass that torch along to someone else...

    Well, that and the fact that my MacBook "died"...

    re the toe, did I ever tell you the story when I fell out of a lift (the doors opened and I was talking to someone and the lift fell about 6inches below the floor so I tripped)... banged my toe up bad, so painful, but the worst part was hearing the hysterical laughter from all of the people in the lift as the doors closed with me sprawled on the floor.

    Last night I took my meds up to bed with me. When I woke up at 6, I took them and went back to sleep for a couple of hours. When I got up it was tolerable. It's slowly getting better. I'm continuing to pop pills. No sharp "on fire" pains today

    That reminds me, I should soak it now...brb

    Oh No
    I know it was painful, but thanks for the laugh


    (Why do we laugh at other people's pain/accidents??)

    Nail bed pain is one of the worst pains there is I reckon and there's something about experiencing or watching (or as I've just learned, reading about) a nail being ripped off that just makes my skin crawl. This from the girl who packs wrist-deep cavities in people for a living!

    Yeah, I don't think I'm about to let my meds lapse for the next little while. Yesterday morning was scary BAD.
    Although not as bad as kindney stones or hours of Oxytocin induced back labour...

    Thursday
    Foods
    Protein shake, egg, bowl of chili with cheese and sour cream, frozen raspberries with whipping cream, the "hook" part of a candy cane...

    Poisons and Stupid Mistakes umm, I didn't hurt myself today
    There were beans in my chili.
    I was offered the candy cane by my Home Instruction Student...

    PFB2 "almost chin-ups

    The "Other Stuff"
    I put my meds beside the bed lat night and dosed up at 6am, then fell back asleep until 8. I had to get up to give my parents my MacBook to take to London. Then I climbed back into bed with my butterflies

    I got up and "got ready" at 10:30. My toe felt OK.

    My Home Instruction Student texted me at noon. He had a Dr apt, so we moved our lesson to 6:30. I changed into painting clothes and put a coat of trim on three door frames, one door and some banister posts. (I haven't painted trim in - forever. It all needs a touch up)

    My Daughter had a band pot-luck supper tonight, she wanted to take chili, so that was supper. I dropped her off and then went to my Student's place. Where I was given the candy cane.

    Picked my Daughter up at 8, and I've been fighting with the IBM ThinkPad since then.

    I miss my mac
