We have this old laptop computer that the girls used to use for doing their homework and playing games online. I say "used to use" because one day while fighting over it, they broke something where the power source plugs into it. Without power, they couldn't use it anymore.
Well, this morning, Sarah decided that she was going to try to fix it. It's not like Phil didn't already try to fix it, but for some reason, she thought that she was going to be able to take it apart and figure it out herself. Amazingly, she did!
She got it working once, but then the dog accidentally pulled the cord out again and it quit working. So, she started all over again, and managed to get it running again. The second time, she decided to tape the power cord in place so that it wouldn't be so easy to pull it out again.
We're all still a bit astounded that she was able to get it going again. Phil was ready to trash it. Either way, I'm back to not having to share my desktop computer with the girls when they need to do their homework.
