If you follow Kansas City Mamas on Twitter or Facebook, you probably read that on Tuesday night I tripped and a whole glass of water went over/into/on-top-of my beloved laptop.
And then I freaked out and did the OPPOSITE of what you are suppose to do – which is to shut everything down immediately, put it on it’s side and put it in front of a fan.
Instead, I tried numerous times to make my beloved laptop come on again. Each time with more screaching and flickering. And at 11:30 pm it existed to turn on.
Since I was in shock at this moment, I did a quick prayer asking for God to handle it and somehow fell asleep.
Enter 1:30 am.
When I awoke and the shock/comfort in God taking care of it turned into PANIC.
PANIC because a blogger’s life is tied up in her laptop and there were things that were saved on its hard drive that were no where else.
So starting at 1:30 am, I tried to salvage all of my records from my laptop by trying to find them in other places where I had emailed them, posted them, etc. And then since I was all hopped-up-on-stress-panic and the adereline – I just decided to stay up all night long.
So after a night/morning/day like that, I needed some love from the oven. I needed comfort food.
Stick to your bones. Like a Grandma’s hug. Nothing fancy. Probably has Cream of Something Soup in it comfort food.
So I made a big 9×13 pan of Tater Tot Casserole – ‘cause I didn’t care if no one else ate it – I just knew I would feel better after I was done.
And I did.
And somehow God smiled on me and my computer came back to life.
Sometimes the world just needs more comfort food.
