….. of laptops, that is.
Yes, I have managed to kill the beautiful MacBook Air I was given to use AFTER my old Dell died a watery death earlier this year.
Yes, I spilled a drink all over it (and posted a picture of it on Instagr.am, with rice all over the keyboard) and now it won’t turn on.
Yes, ALL of my baby’s pictures are on it and no, I did not think to back them up or had the opportunity to upload them in my ThisLife account.
Yes, I am an idiot.
And yes, my husband found another laptop for me from his stash at the office and it works. It’s no MacBook Air, the battery is crap and needs to be on charger at all times, it takes forever to boot up, but it works.
When I sent him a text in the middle of the afternoon to inform him that I had ruined yet another laptop, his immediate response was to tell me to put it in rice (I had).
His next response was to tell me to take photographs of it as “this makes a good blog post.”
Yes, when you’re married to a blogger, that’s how you think, naturally.

Thank you Husband, for not making me feel like an idiot. For not making me feel bad about my carelessness. For hustling up a laptop for me as soon as you could because you know how lost I feel without one.
You could easily have given me a gentle lecture on not putting drinks next to computers and other electronic products, but you did not.
You could have made me feel guilty for nearly losing all our baby’s pictures (priceless) and I would have agreed with you, but you did not.
Instead, you hugged me and told me it’s okay, we can retrieve those pictures. Instead, you went to the office and got me a working computer. Instead, you encouraged me to write a blog post about it.
Merci, my dear man. Merci.
