This deployment has brought with it a technological curse. Since Joshua left in February, here's a list of the things which have either become possessed or straight up died on me...in no particular order...
Laptop-only briefly until the Laptop Dr could fix it-Thank God!
Cell phone-actually 2 cell phones, 3 different times
Battery in my truck
Fuse Box-for the house...meaning no power to two rooms until it was fixed
Address Book-file on computer
DVD player in the truck-on the drive back from Florida
Laptop Cooling Thing-not the internal fan but the thing it sits on and has a fan that is powered by the laptop via USB (made a funny/slightly terrifying smell when it died)
And most recently...as in yesterday, my printer.
I'm not sure if that's an excessive amount, given that it's been 10 months and I'm sure most, if not all of these mini-disasters would have happened anyway but I married Joshua for two big reasons (other than the whole I love him and want to spend my life with him thing)...
A-he's tall...you know, so he can reach things that I can't and I can breed height back into my gene pool
B-he can fix just about anything...sure, I know how to fix a flat tire and if I absolutely had to, I could even change my own oil...probably...but that's just it, I married Joshua so I would never have to do anything remotely resembling mechanical/electrical work.
So, I'm counting the days and praying nothing else breaks between now and when Joshua comes home because at this point, I'll most likely leave anything that abandons me for him to fix.
