Work was SO busy on Tuesday. Then, Wednesday was a nightmare. I didn't get home from the office until after 8 p.m. The perfect Murphy's Law day. To top off everything else, the battery light on my 2016 computer that I recently bellyached about because I was forced to update to Windows 10 started flashing orange. I googled and learned the battery was gone. Replace it right away. Great.

So I ordered one from Amazon that was supposed to arrive Thursday (which would be today as you are reading this). It was another nightmare because I've never done this before. I didn't know if I was ordering the right thing. Or if I could trust the seller... my computer has been outdated for a very long time! What if the part I ordered was junk or didn't fit???

The part arrived at my front door ten minutes before me. I googled again to learn how to install it, then hoped like heck I wouldn't ruin the battery or the computer as I pulled the plug on the old battery and nervously installed the new one. Which I hoped really was new, as advertised.

My computer is purring! It's 9:18 p.m. Wednesday night, and my computer is working again! This little baby is like the Energizer Bunny! It just keeps going and going! Occasionally needs something new that stretches me in ways I didn't know I could bend, but it keeps right on going!

seldom heard, well must you keep your secrets
locked inside, hidden deep from view?
You can talk to me... (Stevie Nicks)
