Did you know that buying a new computer can be one of the most terrifying things of all time for a crazy person?
I know. Because I’ve been living a first-world nightmare for the past 10 days. Lengthy trips to Best Buy. Sleepless night. Crazy dreams. Seriously. I don’t know what I’d do if I had to deal with an actual problem.

I knew I would probably have to buy a new computer this year because we’ve put two new hard drives in my old MacBook that I bought in 2008. The last time, the Mac guy told me that I “should probably start saving for the next computer.” Basically, no more bandages. Tough love, people.

In other news that seems less insane – I’m thrilled to be over at My Life in Transition today. Julia asked me to be a part of her awesome new series called Moms Making it Work. It’s all about supporting one another as moms and telling our stories. I’m sharing the nitty gritty about how I went from working full-time in an office to being at home full-time. Trust me, it’s a bit of a novel. But lots of things I’ve not really discussed on the blog.
You can also check out the other contributors – there are some amazing moms in this group with tons of great tips for making it work. I’ve been so inspired following along.
