BOO. (Again.)

I don't think I even have to tell you. Three days this time. Since we're probably going to get a new computer anyway, I am starting to think of this as a fun game: guess how many times HP will pay to ship my computer overnight before they decide it's cheaper to fix it for good!

But I did get a few more pictures on Smugmug before the last Blue Screen of Death. So, very belatedly, Auletta's five-month birthday pictures.

First of all, I realized that I had almost no pictures of her sleeping in her bouncy seat, and as those moments are becoming rarer, I wanted to capture one of them. She still sometimes sleeps with her head tipped to the side like this, which looks uncomfortable but is how she spent her last months in the womb.

With the star of one of her favorite books:

With Moxy the Ugly Doll:

With, um, beer. It's Belgian. We're starting her out young:

I took a lot, so I'll post more in future entries.

YAY. (Again.) (Maybe.)

We're back, and so is my computer, which arrived this morning. (HP actually attempted to ship it while we were across the country, despite repeated notice from me that were not around to receive it, but DHL very nicely held the package until today.) We'll see how long it lasts this time. In any case I think we will be returning to my Apple roots for our next computer. All three of us have a cold and have slept most of the time we've been home since returning Saturday morning, but I should have pictures from our healthier days on Smugmug soon, if my laptop holds up.

HP is not quite dead to me. They got a box to me this morning and I dropped it off, so hopefully my computer will be for real fixed when I get back. Out.

Well, I managed to get four entire pictures on Smugmug before my computer died again. And there's not much I can do about it right now because we're leaving for Seattle tomorrow. Hewlett Packard, you are dead to me.

My computer is finally back. HP had it for three weeks. They had to order a new motherboard or something, which I guess makes sense because it's almost two years old, but still, grr. Justin and I aren't used to sharing a computer, and it got rather wearing.

I will post new pictures soon.
