My laptop died in my arms yesterday.
I think I died a little bit along with it.
It was my first laptop.
I started this blog on it.
I discovered the Diabetic Online Community within its bright screen.
I started my Facebook account, my twitter account and typed my heart out tinkering on its keys.
Let me tell you, it saw its share of tears on the keyboard.
Maybe I killed it with love.
Whatever happened, I got a new one. And no...I don't have a problem. Getting a new laptop the day after your old one breaks is VERY normal. I can live without being on line.
...for like 48 hours! (Hey, I didn't want to push it!)
So here I am on this new laptop, who I was sure I would hate...and I'm turning out to love. I'm liking the way it feels.
I wonder what kind of firsts I will have with my new lap top..."Lappy". (Yeah...that name isn't going to work.) Who knows, maybe I'll write my book on this laptop. LOL! LOL! I don't think books let you write in short, unending sentences with ellipsis galore!
Anyway, the real reason I'm writing today is I wanted to let you know I will be away for a few days...but never fear, I will return with a TON to blog about! Medtronic has invited little ol' me to attend an Advocate Forum in Los Angeles. I'm leaving on the jet plane today baby! There will be some peeps from the blogging community on twitter giving you the play by play. They'll be using the hashtag #MedtronicDAF. My phone doesn't do internet...(super sad face) so you'll have to wait for all the juicy details from me when I get back.
Until then, adieu.
Adieu. Adieu, to you and you and you! (Shout out to the Sound of Music!)
Wish me luck on my first solo trip...ever! It's almost like I'm a grown up!
PS In the interest of full disclosure, Medtronic is flying me out there, feeding me and giving me a place to lay my head. They didn't ask me to blog about my trip...but you know me...I will! My views will be my own...but who are we kidding...I'm a huge fan of Medtronic!
