A crash and a squeak

So Monday turned into The Worst Day Ever. In the afternoon I felt a tickle in my throat, by dinner it hurt to swallow, and by the bedtime it was so painful I couldn't sleep. So I figured I'd just watch some TV on my computer to lull me to sleep. Nope. My Macbook wouldn't turn on. Logic board = destroyed. So on Tuesday I woke up with a fever and went to urgent care to get tested for strep throat since it's been going around my school. Then I stopped to get my computer checked and my worst fears were realized when the nerds confirmed that my logic board did in fact bite the dust and it would cost $600 to fix (so it's not even worth fixing, at this point I may as well just buy a new one since mine is five years old and pretty beat-up anyway). Luckily I am cool and have an external hard drive so all my stuff is safe and can be transferred to the new computer. But now I'm freaking out about how I don't have $1000 laying around to buy a new Macbook. Wednesday I felt a bit better and today I'm back at work. Whenever I get sick I lose my voice for a day or two so I have this squeak as a voice. It's super embarrassing to answer the phone "Health office, Christine speaking..." when I have to squeak it out and I sound like I'm at death's door and should not be providing medical care to anyone except myself... I feel much better though, I just sound terrible! 

Necklace - thrifted
Sweater - Daisy Fuentes
Shirt - Anthropologie
Jeans - thrifted Banana Republic
Shoes - Madeline

Anyhoodle, I need to raise some funds for the computer and I also need to get some of this rack-o-vintage out of  my condo. So everything in my etsy shop is 25% off (not including shipping costs) until next Friday so shop away and enter "LOGICBOARD" in the instructions to seller part at check-out and I'll refund you the 25%! Wahoo!

Sorry that you had a tough week. It seems like everyone is sick now. I'll take a look at the shop.

Ack! I'm so sorry about your tough week. Mine's been a bit of a doozy, too. And SUCH a bummer about the computer. My MacBook has been acting up for months, and I finally had to buckle down and buy a ... HP. Every time I turn it on I tell it that I hate it, but a $300 pricetag was too compelling. :(

Also, I LOVE this outfit. Great layering, and those jeans are fantastic!

You may not be feeling well (hope you get better), but you *look* great in this outfit. Will have a look at your etsy shop.

I'm glad that you're feeling better. Good luck raising money for a new Mac!

Sorry about your crappy week. You look great today in your high waisted jeans. I bet you sound cute when your voice cracks. Probably a nice surprise for a parent calling the nurses' office.
Bummer about the computer. I used to be a Mac girl but my Blokey convinced me to go open source (which is way more hard core. Typically, you have to be dedicated or married to an open source geek to work this out). I bought a $300 netbook -Asus eee pc- and it works great (and it weighs almost nothing and has a long battery life).

Boo on computers not working. However, it was a great reminder to check out your etsy and I am happy to say that leopard hat is now mine (along with a poncho). Take care of yourself!

What a tough week! I hope you are feeling better. If it helps, you looked great. Those pants are such a different (and fantastic ) look.
