- I hate when things break unexpectedly. My brain is weird and won’t let me concentrate completely on something like work while things around me aren’t working. So the broken icemaker (now replaced), the broken cable and DVR (working on being completely fixed), and now my broken phone (have an appointment to be looked at on Monday) have been driving me batty!!! It’s been hard to make progress online while I keep concentrating on getting stuff repaired. I also know my laptop is going on to 7 years old and needs to be replaced soon too. I’ll be my perky, on-top-of-it self again when at least my phone is fixed…and I’ll be keeping an eye out for great laptop sales this season…
