My laptop is back in my possession, and it looks fantastic. In addition to having the screen replaced, I also asked for the battery to be replaced as it was not staying charged. Then, as an afterthought, I texted the repairman and asked him if he could clean the keyboard. Instead, he found a replacement keyboard for $12. So I now have a new screen, battery and keyboard. It's like a whole new computer!!
I am so glad I didn't have to go shopping for a new laptop. This one will do just fine, even if this did cost me $180. I think there is a lot of life left in this one, so I am happy to be able to get it fixed.
Well, for someone who was in a regular habit of posting on my blog, I fear that I am completely out of the habit.
I will work on that. Several projects are ongoing, and I will get to them all.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
