I usually don’t post personal stuff here, but we’ve had a pretty lousy week, which includes a back-in-the-shop-computer. I wanted to let people know that I’m still here, even if I’m slow in responding or posting.
Here are the highlights of this past week: bad news about our house (about $15,000+) , ineffective prescription drug (major heartburn), a dead computer (once again) and a not-so-quick trip to the emergency room (not related to the above mentioned drug). To top if off, my twin sister “forgot” to call me on my birthday. I called her, but she hasn’t returned my call. Nice, eh? *sigh*
Anyway, the one bright spot all week is our huge impulse buy. Well, sort of impulse. My husband had been talking for months about buying a portable (laptop) computer. When my computer died this week, I mentioned that I should have bought a Mac instead of my stupid HP. One thing lead to another and 4 hours later I was back a home with a new MacBook. Once my PC is fixed, I’ll probably return to using it at least for the time being. It’s only 1.5 years old...far too young to be put out to pasture even though I’m pretty fed up with it. My husband will probably take over this laptop. :( If I can figure out how to get my camera hooked up to this thing, I'll post some pictures of the Mac. Those Apple folks really know a thing about design. Even the box is pretty.
In the meantime, there’s a learning curve associated with this MacBook so expect me to be slow at responding. Also, I’m having some trouble with my email. If you sent an email that requires a response and I haven’t replied, please email me again.
I also don’t have access to any of my data which included some rough outlines of reviews that I should have posted. Not sure if I’m going to start from scratch or wait for my PC to return, but I should have a couple posted by April 23, 2010.
Of course, I’m still behind in reading and posting reviews, but I’m catching up. If you have questions or concerns regarding this, please email me.
Things have got to get better, right?
