Back Up and Running

If you've noticed my radio silence, blame Windows.

Ourr laptop met an untimely demise thanks to stupid Microsoft's stupid Windows 10 forced update gone terribly wrong (and unauthorized, might I add). I was unable to blog for a while as I weighed my options. I refuse to buy another Windows OS matching, so Mac it is. But we have a few more pressing financial goals right now (new floors, new paint, etc.), so I hate to spend 2k on a computer.

I was chatting with Mom about this issue and realized that I really only use the laptop to write blog posts (because I hate using the iPad keyboard) and print things. Enter the Anker wireless keyboard. With the purchase of this $20 keyboard, my first problem was solved. With the purchase of a $100 printer that supports AirPrint, my second problem was solved...saving me quite a bit of money replacing the computer.

Down the road I'm sure we'll bite the bullet and buy a laptop. Until then, this solution is working out quite nicely. I hope to be blogging more regularly now that I've gotten past my computer woes.


  1. Yay for your keyboard and printer purchase! We have been missing your posts and photos!

  2. It has been a long time between Ben fixes.
