computer woes

dear mr. computer,

i feel like we need to talk.
you’ve seemed really distant from me lately,
not letting me be with you as much as i’d like.
really, not as much as i NEED.
i feel like this has become a one-way relationship – i’m always coming to you,
but you are never there for me.
this is not working.
YOU are not working.
this needs to change.
i tried taking care of you, giving you a new battery.
at first, things seemed better.
but now, not so much.
a new power cord is on its way, i promise, but i know its just not soon enough.
i must confess, i’ve been seeing someone else.
my iphone.
but you made me do it!
if you had been there for me,
i wouldn’t have to seek out the attention of other technological devices!
i know my dependance on you has been too strong.
maybe that is what has pushed you to the “breaking point”.
or maybe i pushed your buttons too often.
i really hope that when we get this power cord that we can work things out.
our troubles are not only affecting me personally, but now with work, too.
you were such a help to me for so many things,
and now without you, i literally can’t go on.
i think about you often, probably too often, i confess.
please please can we make this work?

missing you,
the above pic is a tiny little peak at the invites nicole and i did for the 2nd birthday party for our boys. i wish i could show you more pictures, but alas, my computer has left me. i may not be around much for awhile. i do hope you’ll keep checking in to see if we ever recover.
i hate my computer (today).
****edited: my computer and i are doing much better! he really listened to my needs and, with the help of a new power cord, we’re on the road to recovery. and a long life together ;)*****

    So glad to hear that he listened to your needs. That is a committed relationship if I've ever heard of one!

    you need a mac. your dating the wrong computer. i think it's time you ended your relationship, and spent your life with a computer that really loves you (like your apple iphone).
