Oh I missed it so much! My laptop is back! I fried the cord by plugging it into the plane, and so I had to wait for the company to give me a new cord.
It was good for me I am sure. Just to have a little break from having a computer attached to my body, but I am still glad to have it back. My old tangerine imac is limited, if not for the computer's speed, from my body's willingness to sit on a chair that long.
