I walked in thinking I was going to need to leave my laptop for a repair. The numbers on the keyboard weren't working and the storage wasn't shifting after deleting large files. My laptop is probably semi-organized and one of my goals for the summer. Luckily, my husband had done a backup the night before so when the kind Apple Genius said, we'll need to reset your computer and replace the keyboard; I was ready. I knew going in to the store I would probably need to leave my computer for overnight. What I didn't know is my keyboard part would need to be ordered and I would be without my laptop for maybe five days. I left the store and starting shaking off the worries of not having a laptop a bit like Sharpay Evans from High School Musical, including the little shrill. My high schooler looked at me and said, "Mom that's a bit dramatic, you'll be fine." I wasn't sure, she thought I was being silly and I hope one day when her technology isn't available or working she'll remember my little panic and her advise.
