Just wanted to give you a short update. My laptop has been ordered and is supposed to arrive at the computer store in Albany either Thursday or Friday. I’m taking my old laptop in on Thursday so they will have it when the new one comes in. They will transfer everything they can out of the memory (wouldn’t it be great if they could do that with our old brains – get rid of the stuff we don’t need and keep all our good memories and the wisdom we’ve acquired), and I should be back in business by Monday at the latest. Keep your fingers crossed!
I decided on an Acer, which – after a lot of research by me AND the computer store folks – turned out to be the most bang for my buck. It has all the features I need, loads of RAM, loads of memory (is that the same thing?), and a lot of the newest bells and whistles that are going to be important in the future. This little Acer notebook has really been a good computer since we bought it in July in Cheboygan, and I’m hoping that the bigger version will be just as good. I seriously shopped for a Dell, thought about a Sony Vaio, KNEW I couldn’t afford a Mac, and didn’t want another HP. So an Acer it is.
If I get the new computer on Friday, I will be back online on Monday morning with a new blog. If I don’t get it until Monday, it will be Tuesday before I’m back. I have MISSED WRITING and hearing from you! I’ve been wandering around the house at night wondering what in the world I ever did before I started blogging!
Today marked my “surgery + two weeks” date. Dawn and I started back walking on Monday, and oh my gosh it feels good to be out getting some exercise. We walk for an hour each day with all three dogs – Bear, Maddie, and Dawn’s “Susie Q”.
The azaleas are about to be in full bloom, as are the dogwood trees. Over the weekend I’ll take a ride down our street and photograph “springtime at the ri’vah” for you.
Have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you back here on Monday, good Lord willing. Hopefully, next week we can get back to normal! Yeah for normal! God bless.
