Oops!

 So I do realize that it's been a week since my last post.  And as much as I hate excuses, I have what I think is a pretty decent one.  It's kinda hard to do anything when you can only see a 2" strip on one side of your monitor.
Me and my stupid butterfingers!  I am forever dropping and breaking things!  Normally they are much less expensive things, thank goodness.  
Luckily, my computer-savvy (and also very frugal) husband informs me that you can replace a laptop monitor for about $100.  Thank goodness it was just the monitor and not the hard drive!

What a bummer!! Some laptops will allow you to connect to a regular monitor - just knock someone off their desktop pc long enough to get your bloggy fix! (Oh and yes, that is a good enough excuse, LOL)

Yikes! Yeah, hard drives are expensive! I've fried mine once before and my computer has never been the same. I don't know if it is the new one or what but it doesn't compare. Oh well, like you said- Expensive!

very good excuse - sorry you have to shell out for a new monitor! I think I would have cried if I'd dropped mine. since it's not mine. :) it's my hubby's!

The same thing happened to me last week-still trying to figure out how to replace mine-luckily we have two laptops. But if you plan to purchase the cord to connect to a monitor or flat screen tv, order it from Amazon, I bought one for like $4, but it came to about $7 with shipping-Good Luck!
