my computer finally kicked the bucket. I do not think that 4 years is a very good life span for such an expensive piece of equipment! I'm really struggling to stick to my budget, so I may or may not have a computer to blog with for a while... it depends on how much discipline I have. How in the world am I going to find recipes now! And I already got rid of all of our phonebooks. You just never realize how much you depend upon something until it's gone!
