It rained last night. Not much but any rain is good out here. It was still sprinkling this morning so I figured it would be a good time to catch up on my “inside” work. One of the things I wanted to do was take my laptop apart and see if the problem was the same one I read about online. That was where the dc power jack disconnected with the motherboard. Taking the laptop apart was a task despite having instructions with pictures. But when I got the motherboard out I was not happy to see that it looked nothing like what I read about, it was a different one. So I tested the cable with my ohm meter and everything worked. That means that I will have to buy a new motherboard. They only run around two hundred dollars though the exact price for mine will have to be looked up. It will have to wait regardless. Ben’s vet bill set us back a little.
I’ve got one of those bad headaches. Makes me bitchy and things like the dogs barking just pound inside my head.
