Some days I just feel like throwing my hands in the air. We have battled non employment, brain tumours (ongoing battle), deaths in the family, newly diagnosed diabetes to both my parents, my father in law has been hospitalised for dementia. I always try to stay positive, always. This morning finally had me shed a few tears. It's the smallest thing, but I finally broke, just for a moment and I will get over it. My laptop died. I plugged it in, turned it on and then it made a funny noise and smoke!!! It holds all of my sequencing that I have spent countless hours creating. I know it's not the end of the earth, but just for a moment I let my guard down. Last week I was finally able to scrape together enough money to place a part order with Ray. I was so excited (I know, small things....) There, I feel better now. I will rebuild, fix or acquire and get things up and running again somehow. At least I still have my iPad so I can keep in contact with all the wonderful people on ACL.
