i'm on my way back! tonight, after MUCH research and near-purchases, we finally just did it. we bought a computer. a laptop. a really cool one. i get to go pick it up at the store tomorrow. as SOON as my chiropracter appointment is over tomorrow, i'm heading to best buy! so excited to finally have a functional computer of my own again! maybe, just maybe, i'll be back in action by tomorrow evening. if not, then soon. but i'm on my way back, baby!
