Our Chrstmas Present Arrived!

The laptop that we ordered for our Christmas present to each other arrived this week. We are having fun and frustration getting it set up. I am glad we were able to get this laptop as our other computer is 7 years old and runs windows 98. Hubby is in the computer field so I imagine that was frustrating to him to have such an old, out of date computer at home. We are keeping old computer so daughter can play her games and to have a back up but will probably put most stuff on the laptop.

I took it yesterday when I had to wait to pick up daughter from school. I watched Veggie Tales DVD in the carpool lane. The picture was great and by turning on subtitles I had captioning. This is going to be nice for long car rides. We have portable DVD player (christmas present from grandparents last year) but that screen is only 7 in, the laptop is 17 inches!

Hubby bought a new game last night ("just to make sure the graphics card is working" Yeah right, baby!) By the time he got the wireless installed and all the other stuff it was 9:30 so I talked him out of playing it last night. He would have been crabby today after spending all night playing! So I think I know what my hubby will be doing this weekend!

I think it is going to take a lot of self disipline not to spend all my time on the laptop. I need to remind myself that I have other responsibilities and committments. I think I can do it, I am stronger than some computer, I do not need to play computer games, need to connect to blogsites, need to go to internet, pick up laptop, PICK UP LAPTOP......AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

That is what my husband wants now a days. A laptop. May have to pick your brain as to the specs.

You have responsibilities other than the computer?
