Could this really be the death of my MAC?

I use a MAC computer and I adore it. It has served me beautifully for the past few years. I've never had a problem with it. Ever.

Until today.

Today it gave me the MAC version of the Blue Screen Of Death.

My husband has been trying valiantly to fix it... and he is graciously letting me use his laptop so I can pour out my sorrow to the internets. But he thinks we may have to nuke the thing and start over from the beginning.

I DID back the whole thing up about 6 weeks ago. But like a moron I forgot to do it again this month and even when the stupid thing blinked at me YESTERDAY and said "time to do a back-up" I ignored it thinking I would do it this weekend. When I had more time.

I am not so smart.

In my defense I have had an insane week. I took Aiden to get 2 of his cavities fixed today- he did amazingly well. He only started to freak out when they put the initial freezing in and again when the drill started up... but he calmed himself down right away. I always hated that part too. But then my ADHD child stayed perfectly still for them for the next half hour. I was in awe. I am so proud of him.

He still has two more appointments to go but I didn't tell him that yet.

I met with the assessment people because they would like to give Owen some counselling and strategies to help him deal with having a special needs sibling and heal from some of the abuse Aiden has heckled at him over the years. It was a very encouraging meeting and I am pleased that we will be getting some help for him.

I've got a lot of packing done. I cleaned the house. I've been rather productive today.

And as a reward my computer dies.

Wow MAC you sure don't fail often but when you do- you do it spectacularly.

I am so bummed. Apparently I am very bad for computers.

shoot me an email with what happened when it died and what happens now when you try to start up (oh and include what kind of mac it is). Hubby is a mac guru and I am a pc guru. Between the two of us, we got your back.

I hope your MAC doesn't die on you. Sounds like you have enough going on with that added stress. You've reminded me that I have no idea when the last time I backed on my laptop stuff. I'm not even sure I know how to do it. Need to get with my computer guy and see what I should do. Take care and I hope you have a great weekend.
