As of recently Mark and I haven't been having the best of luck, especially with work. Although I'm not going to go into details, work has been a series of stressful situations one after the other. The last event, however, has changed my birthday donation to charity: water idea unfortunately. Yesterday there was an accident at work involving spilt water on Mark's laptop. Thankfully his hard drive was saved, but his computer was not. :(
We're trying to find the most economic and affordable means of alleviating the problem. Although we would both love for Mark to be able to purchase a new laptop, that would be too much money. As of now he is using his brother's old Mac Mini desktop computer, but it's only temporary. The only alternative that we can think of right now is to purchase a Mac Mini desktop that has been refurbished and let him use my laptop for the majority of the time (though it's not in the best of shape it will work). Because of our unfortunate luck, it doesn't make much sense to take donations to charity: water when he can't even do any work for them without a computer. Getting to my point, for my birthday any money would be so gratefully accepted towards purchasing our desktop computer.
Here's to hoping that our luck improves and things start looking up.
