A New Computer!

After more than a month of being without my own computer, I'm back in business.

My son Morgan has been very sweet in allowing me to use his laptop but it's not the same as having your own.

I had thought I had purchased a desktop from Dell online but when, after a few days they was no e-mail acknowledging my order I got concerned. For good reason as it turns out. Somehow My order didn't actually go through. Making things worse was the fact that what I had ordered was on sale for one day only. It was now $200 extra!

In the meantime while using Morgan's laptop I was regretting purchasing a desktop. I have something in the works that really requires a laptop and although I don't anticipate needing it for another year, if I had bought a desktop now there is no way I would spend the money on another computer a year from now!
So. . .
Morgan and I went shopping last night.

Here is my lovely new laptop and printer/scanner (another necessity needed for 'the plan')
I'm still wincing over the money spent, but, well. . .
I love it!
Now all I need are my files which the computer repair people are backing up for me.

I leave you today with a picture of Jada I took on our walk this morning.
She loves to sniff!

Oh man, that's COOOOOL! What are you up to on that laptop of yours? And hey, is one of your boys coming to stay with me for the Mass Band concert? I'm looking forward to it :)

Congratulations on your new 'baby' (cost about the same huh?) Great set up, and cool sniffing dog:)

If a dog doesn't sniff in the snow around here, she's out of luck for months!

Yay - I'm glad you got your new computer and that it's what you want. Even a scanner and printer that work! I'm looking forward to "the plan". :-)

You are being very mysterious... Now I'll be wondering what you're up to!

Yeah! Look how things worked out to your good! Big smile down here (where it should be warm, but Mother Nature got confused.)
