It never rains, but it pours.
Today has been an end of what can only be described as an expensive week.
Monday started with a “minor” plumbing issue (are they ever?!?) that translates in to a new section of black water line, and $3,500 being billed, to remove a sharp turn that has been consistently clogging every couple of years, for the past decade.
And Thursday rolled around with a bulging lithium battery in my wife’s Microsoft Surface Book laptop that threatens to crack the screen that 18 months outside of the extended warranty. So that’s $710 to repair/replace because it is still a pretty good and fully functional laptop that has a couple more years of life in it.
And over sushi, Friday evening rolled through and the conversation turned to new laptops with Saturday afternoon wrapping up on the Microsoft store website, ordering a new $3,400 Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio with 4-year warranty.
