Poor old feller.....

Hi My Loves!!!

The day has come...... our beloved laptop might need to retire (or at least we think so)... :(
We have had this Mac book pro for almost 6 years and we have used it so much! It's been a great laptop and its been around the world. It's been to Hawaii and England. It's been with us through an engagement, a wedding and 2 babies. It's what I used to film and edit my first ever beauty video on you tube and write my first blog.

I feel like I'm talking about a pet ha ha!! But it's been such a great memory keeper and little worker bee, that I have a little place for it in my heart. Is that weird??

Anyway, to get to the point, we have been having major problems with it connecting to the Internet over the last few months and also the battery is completely shot. If you take it off the charger for more than 10 minutes it will die after having a full charge. A couple days ago it would not connect to the Internet at all. Now Jay is a pretty tetchy guy (I'm awful) but he worked on it forever the other night and no matter what he tried, it just wouldn't connect. Before it used to connect but then every time we closed it or moved it to another room it would have to be set up for wifi all over again, entering the IP address and all that stuff (I'm probably saying it all wrong lol)....

So if any of you have had this problem with yours, please let us know if it was something you could fix or is it just going to be photo booth fun for Phoenix? Let me know :)

Thanks for reading!


  1. Take it to an apple store or call there 1800 number they always have a few tip and tricks ti try ...

  2. Its had a long life, lots of laptops dont usually live that long. Just buy a new one and it will last for even longer :)

  3. Go to the Internet button and click on Open Internet preferences. Then at the top of the box, click on the menu that is next to Location. Drop down menu and click on Edit locations. Click the add button in that box, then name another connection for your computer.
    Then select that new location then see if it lets you connect to the Internet.
    I had to take my Mac to the apple store and they did that or mine and it fixes the problem :)

  4. Then buy a new battery. I did for mine and it works better! Plus never leave your charger in the computer. That drains the battery.
