The slow and painful death of a laptop...

So finally after a downward spiral into unworkable one of our laptops has died; will not turn on, coming apart, insides are showing dead.  The other is surely not far behind.  The battery will not lock into place anymore and drops out at random.  It also runs so hot that I am constantly worried that the thing just may combust.  I caved a few days ago and bought a small laptop/netbook.  It was on sale on newegg and I had homework that I couldn't get done so it was an absolute necessity.  I got it today and it is adorable and super light.  Still sad about the loss of my old computers, but very much excited to have a new gadget.

Couped up on a Beach Day

New Smyrna Beach

Here I am at home doing homework... again.   I can't stand watching while everyone including my own little one takes off for the beach.  I know it has to be done but these summer classes are killing me.  I don't ever want to take a whole semester off again (though I may be forced to yet again for silly reasons that can not be avoided), but having summers to not worry about child care and condensed classes would be nice.  Hopefully I can take the books with me sometime this summer and get to the beach myself and get some sun.  Being confined to my house and deadlines its depressing.
