On Friday afternoon - before the immigration medical appointments, before the trip to Crystal Springs to see Daddy, but after the packing for the trip and some amount of cleaning - two of my friends came over for coffee. I'd rather have my friends see me in my squalor, than have to get the girls into the car to taken them to a house that is not very child-proof or child-friendly.
I made us all a hot drink and sat down to feed Naomi before I had my cup of coffee. I wasn't sitting near the coffee table/Oceana's feeding trough [ETA: Coffee table that Oceana eats at during her daytime snacks/lunch, usually has food stuck to it. Ew.] and so I set it on the floor near me. Next to the laptop that was slid underneath the couch. And then Oceana came over and did a dance-and-flail for our guests.
And kicked the coffee. Naomi came flying off of her feeding trough [ETA: Me.], and was left unceremoniously on the couch as I hung the laptop from my left hand and opened it to turn it off with the other hand. Logic tells me now I should have just ripped out the cord [I did] and popped the battery out - instead of going through the start menu as I watched liquid pour from my computer onto my carpet.
I did pull the battery out a few minutes.
Good news? After 5 days of drying? It's alive. :D
But we're going to let it dry a few more days before putting the battery back in. It's been cleaned, vacuumed, and dried. There's still a liquid mark instead the LCD screen though, so I'll leave it to dry a little long.
Hmm... about contents insurance???
