My iMac baby

Apple recalled my iMac.  It had a hard drive problem.  For me it was a three hour round trip drive to the Apple store to leave my twenty-seven inch baby in the hands of so called geniuses.  When they told me it would be seven to ten days I nearly cried.  I really did throw a tantrum.  I told em I needed this baby, how would I write?  Where would my ideas go?  What if the back up didn’t really work?  We left her and drove home.  I paced the hall.  My husband asked me if I wanted to work on a project; I glanced at the empty desk and shrugged.  What could we do?

They called me this morning.  After only twenty-four hours my Mac was ready, good as new.  The backup is now reinstalled, and everything is there.  It is such a relief.  I have a smile on my face and another year of apple coverage.  

Life is good!
