I fell behind on my crafting in the last few days!
With all the excitment of getting ready to finally get a laptop of my own I have been busy with other things. I purchased a Dell from Walmart. This will be replacing my Acer desktop. I had the desktop for about 5 years so it was time for something new. Not to mention it was on it's last leg.
I wasn't sure what to do about my photos and documents on my desktop so I did get an external hard drive. That is something I have been wanting for about 2 years now. I got a Seagate that has 1TB so it should provide plenty of space for storing photos. My daughter was over here and I showed it to her and where I am keeping it. I told her if she was at the house and a storm was coming to grab it and put it in her purse that way all our photos would be saved. She was not amused *okie thinks that kid needs to get a better sense of humor but then thinks maybe not because okie was not kiddin about it*.
I did finally get the laptop yesterday and spent quite a bit of time getting it set up and programs installed. I can't believe how fast this sucker is but in reality anything would have been an upgrade from my desktop. I also like that it has the 10 key on the keyboard. I don't use one often but when I need to do numbers I love having that feature. The laptop has a webcam as well but not sure what the heck I am suppose to do with it. It makes me nervous because I wonder if someone is watching me. Maybe I should cut a tiny Cricut head out of some vinyl and put it on there!
I also got a new wireless printer, a Canon Pixma MG5520. I was worried about setting it up but it was actually fairly easy to do. I even printed a test page so I do have it set up right *okie wipes her brown dramatically*. I would hate to have to throw it out the window because it didn't want to setup right, especially with it being brand new and all!
I won't get to do any crafting today as I have an all day workshop *okie would like to smack her boss upside the head for making the workshop on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend but figures what's done is done*. Then tonight I got a hot date with my friend Nancy. We are going out to eat and then to the casino for a little while. Nancy is trying to come to grips with learning to be single and happy. I have tried to tell her for quite some time that it is really nice when you can become your own best friend. I told her many times that I am my own best company and have quite a few interesting conversations with myself *okie wonders how many of her readers are nodding their head up and down and thinking 'yep that's so okie'*.
Anyway, if I don't get anything posted this weekend I just want to tell you guys to have a Happy Memorial Day and stay safe!!
