Water Damage, Not Mom of the Year, and FF!

A blogger's nightmare: water spilled on the laptop! It's currently buried in rice, hopefully healing. But, that's why you haven't seen as much of me for the past few days. At least my blackberry has been replaced from the spilled milk incident! Not a whole lot of luck with electronics this week. Or maybe everyone in my family just needs to use sippy cups.

If you are here to see who this week's BFF is, you can find that post HERE.

Toay is the last day to vote for Not Mom of the Year! It's a really tight race. I'd appreciate your vote HERE. Thank you so much!

Finally, if you are here from Friday Follow(or if you've followed recently and I haven't followed back yet), please make sure you comment and leave me your link. I'll get to them this weekend after my laptop is running again!


Welcome to the 9th Friday Follow hosted by our awesome hostesses, Shell from Things I Can't Say, Terri from That's What She Said, Tami from Hearts Make Families, Harriet from Harriet and Friends, and Ian from The Daily Dose of Reality. Thank you everyone for being willing to host! Please stop by and see these awesome host/hostesses.

Dang girl. Say it with me: electronics + liquid = no bueno. Hopefully it will dry out for you. My son once spilled an entire cup of water on my laptop. It took a while to dry out, but once it did it was fine.

following from Friday Follow. Sorry to hear about the keyboard. My waterproof camera was opened in the water and sat in rice for a long time, but it still didn't make it. Trying to figure out a nice way of telling the parents of the kid who took it in the water (without asking) to help cover the cost of a new one. Good luck with the keyboard
