April Fools on Me

So if you read my Thankful Thursday for the week you'll see the part where I said that the fan on my computer wasn't broken, it was just dirty. My computer was still under warranty so my husband brought it back. They cleaned out the CPU with canned air and said it was right as rain.

Guess what happened as soon as I plugged the darn thing up again? Same wonky noise that I know is the fan going.

So Mrblocko lugged the darn thing back to the store and had them look at it. GUESS WHAT? The fan on the power supply died. YEAH. Duh. Why couldn't they have figured that out the first time and saved my husband another trip.

Luckily, the computer is under warranty so they fix it for free and I get a brand spanky new loaner. Except they have to send in for the part because it is a "brand" part for the warranty and it could take 6-8 weeks. Say what?

April Fools number 2. You will note that on Thursday I posted that I was thankful for the Free antibiotics at Meijers and that Blockette only had an ear infection. Well Thursday night she spikes a fever. So bright and shiny early in the morning we trek back on over to the Dr for some new really expensive antibiotics that aren't free at Meijers or even in the el cheapo program at Walmart. Keep your fingers crossed that these do the trick.

There is a funny story to come out of all this. When Mrblocko came home from work yesterday we were all hanging out in the kitchen as I prepared dinner. I told him that the Dr. also prescribed Blockette a steroid to help with her cough.

Blockette pipes up, "My medicine is from outer space? That's what killed all the Dinosaurs!!!"

Mrblocko and I looked at each other and I got the case of the giggles. I could not stop laughing. He had to explain to her that she was thinking of Asteroids not steroids.


  1. I laughed so hard I stopped breathing and now I'm dead, thanks ;)

    I will always and forever remember the steroid story and hope to tell it while her first date is visiting your home.


  2. Excellent. It's always good to know I've got a partner in crime for embarassing my daughter!

  3. Ugh, we (hubby) just had a rash of computer problems on his 4 week old computer! And I kept chugging along on my 7 year old laptop (hee,hee, hee)!

    Love your daughter's story, hope she's all mended!
