It took a really long time, but it's back to normal now

Remember how my computer died back in December? And the Best Buy people fixed it? But it was still semi-broken because I had to reload my operating system?

Well after three days of work I can finally say my computer is back to normal.

The Coach reinstalled the operating system for me on Sunday. Because he knows how to do that kind of stuff and I don't. So as he sat at my desk and putzed with discs and mice and a keyboard, I sat on my futon and watched.

Then it came time to uninstall all the crappy software that came loaded on the computer that I didn't want bugging me. That took a bit of time. But it's gone now and I've replaced it with the stuff I like.

And tonight? While the wind was howling and snow was blowing, I put all of the documents back on my computer that I've been collecting since college.

Which means my computer's back to normal. And it's functional. And, most importantly, it works again. Badgergirl's a happy girl. And since my computer, which The Coach took the opportunity to name Madtownrunner, is in a friendly mood, I wouldn't feel so bad about possibly purchasing a new iPod, the electronic that I've been coveting since the fall.

But for now, I'll just be happy my computer's back in working shape. And I can do stuff on it again without worrying that it's going to blow up.
