Begging and Borrowing

My computer is/was the oldest computer in our house. It wasn't always the oldest. Paul's was seriously old until we finally splurged on him for his birthday and set him up with a new computer that better suits his needs.

Over Thanksgiving, my computer gave up the ghost. I have seen the blue screen of death and it is not pretty. Thankfully, Paul had the forethought to back up my files a few days prior.

Now I am begging and borrowing computer time off everyone else to get my schoolwork done. Thank goodness I have less than three weeks left. Of school, that is. My computer issue is going to have to wait a bit longer.

I'm gonna hold off buying a new computer for a couple of months. With extra computers in the house, I think I can get by for awhile. Wait for some really insane sale to pick up a new one.

In other news, Kendra has a kidney stone. Because of her unique physiology, she can't pass it naturally. We've already been up to B-ham once to try and have it surgically removed. They managed to break it up (it was the size of a jordan almond, according to the surgeon), but they were unable to retrieve the pieces. She is scheduled for a follow up after finals. X-rays first, in hopes that the smaller pieces passed and no further surgery will be needed.

If you pray, please pray for her, that these fragments will pass through her system and we can avoid surgery for the holidays. Thanks.
