Water + Laptop = a giant headache

About ten days before we left for our family vacation, my mac book had a run in with about 32 oz of water.  Although it was a combined effort between my dog and I, I would love to solely blame him.  It was quite a scene and a lot of expletives were screamed.  I went to Apple and there I found that my computer would not be going home with me, but instead it would be taking a luxurious trip to get it's insides replaced - yeah, the damage was that bad.  The most depressing news of all was that all of my music on my laptop (going back from before the days of iTunes) was g-o-n-e.

As a Spinning instructor, music is the key to my classes.  I always receive compliments about my music choices - I like to have different genres, themes, and throwbacks that many people enjoy!  So losing all of my music was threw a huge wrench in being able to create new playlists quickly.  Yea, it's all replaceable, but the time I spent downloading and looking for inspiration on the inter webs was all for nothing.

Luckily, my technologically savvy husband was able save the day and pulled all of the playlists from the ipod I had used up until a few weeks before.  Whew!  Because the thought of starting over was not pleasant.

It's always something, isn't it??

The first playlist I created after our family vacation and the mac book debacle was a decades ride.  My class loves throwback playlists and so do I.  I love hearing a song that I haven't heard it years and being temporarily transported back in time. It's amazing how powerful music can be for our minds, especially when working out and needing an extra boost of adrenaline. "Reelin' In the Years" got rave reviews from my class!
