Weekly Update, Week 25

I have not been working as consistently as I did in the beginning of this process. It is partly because I am close to being done, but also because life happens. This past weekend, my family came to celebrate my birthday, which is on February 25.

We had a lovely time attending a University of Massachusetts women’s basketball game and going out to dinner. The biggest gift was all being together.

I am still doing a final edit of the chapters and am working on chapter 6 at the moment. One problem that will probably affect how much work I get done this coming week is that my computer broke. I tripped on my cord yesterday causing the top lid hinge to break. It still works, but I cannot really close it. My computer repairman is ordering the part. When the part  comes, it will be about an hour of work to complete the repair.

This is the third time I have needed a new lid. I have had some kind of repair to almost every part of this computer. Some other things have been repaired twice. I dread getting a new computer, so it is easier to keep repairing this one. Eventually some repair will be prohibitively expensive, thus necessitating purchase of a new computer.
