Easter Sunday should have been

Sunday, March 31, 2013

a day of peace where you are thankful for God's Son rising from the dead

Instead if started out with major stress . My laptop appeared dead after the cooling tray I purchased failed and caused things to overheat yesterday

Went to walmart and since I did not have my receipt they would exchange only or credit me towards a more expensive one. What good was that if I did not have a laptop anymore. Opted for the more expensive one and paid the difference. As I was doing this, the gal tells me that it is under company warranty for a year but the transaction was already completed at this point

Go to get a bagel, my Sunday morning treat, and they were sadly not fresh at all. emoticon

Was going to get a drink from starbucks but decided against that.

all the way my mind is thinking, go back to Walmart, get the refund and get my original piece of equipment back and then deal with the company.

So I did. They store manager was brought in as the clerks never had this request before.

So I have the original back, going to raise heck in the morning

And of course, I get home, and my laptop starts but the cooling tray I have is a 15" and I have a 17" laptop so it is not cooling well and cuts out a lot

Spending the rest of the day now cleaning out closests, looking for yarn for my stash challenge in a few hours

Hubby's closest looks great now and it's on to mine when I finish this blog

    Sorry to hear how much trouble you had on a day when we should be at peace. Until you straighten everything out with Walmart, why not just use the cooling tray as a lap stand and not plug it in. I have a tendency to break my cooling trays (they crack) and I haven't plugged my most recent one in in so long I am not sure if it even works. I use the trays to keep my laptop off my lap which, in turn, stays cool.
Anyway, good luck!

    Wishing you all the best. At least you know that Christ DID rise, and because of that, we can have eternal life, too. : )

    I hope you get some resolution with your laptop. Mine is starting to get hot while running, I've had it for some time though. I do use a cooling fan as well.

Happy Easter!

    Hope it works for you. I would hate to lose my laptop almost as much as I would hate to lose my fitbit!
Hope the rest of you Easter is going well!

    Sometime, you just had to do what you need to do. It's tiring and time consuming but that's how we can save and maneuver this society. WTG !! *\(^o^)/*
