I (heart) my laptop


Did I mention I finally got a laptop ... actually Mark got me one via E-bay a few weeks back?
That one didn't work, so we got another, strike 2, so we got this one and we finally got a winner.

I bought a router this weekend and now we're connected to the web . . . wireless! Woo-hoo! I know most of you out there have probably had laptops for a while, but this is a whole new world for me and I love it.

Right now, I'm sitting in my dining room chatting with Anna while I post, not secluded in the junk room (where our desktop PC is) as usual. It's great. I may even take it outside one day and break it in with this Louisiana heat. Too much rain this weekend for that though.

So, Anna's bugging me to get this baby to feed her Neopets. Check y'all out later.

Welcome to my world!! :)

I have one at home too and with wireless too!! I love love love it! I go outside with mine all the time so I can sit on the porch and check email, blogs and post all while my son rides his bike in the driveway.
I've even taken it in the bathroom with me
(oops, did I just say that outloud???)

Isn't technology awesome!?

Very nice! I hope you were able to get your money back on those two duds.

Yea! Freed from the junk room! Good for you!

We bought a laptop and went wifi (ha! don't I sound so tech-y!!) this summer and it's incredible. No more fights about the computer and when we travel, it's invaluable, esp. watching DVD's instead of lugging our small screened DVD player.

Hi Renee! I keep seeing you around so I wanted to drop by. I think I might have dropped by before but I'm not sure. Either way, HI! :)

Enjoy the laptop!

I've never had a laptop....just the desktop pc in what I call the 'computer room' near the family room. Hmmmm....seems like a laptop might be more fun!

I'm still hoping I might get one for Christmas...but I'll probably get some earrings instead!

LOL! Isn't it GREAT? We have a laptop that is ancient and takes about as long to boot up as it takes to cook a meal, but I LOVE being able to surf the net in bed. Woo hoo!

Glad you finally got one that works. Wireless internet is So addictive though... its just so easy to take everywhere in range...

Jamie said...

Yea for you! We have wireless but my laptop generally stays parked on the breakfast bar...close to the beer in the fridge. LOL

I would love a laptop, but with wifi so I can blog at the coffeeshop. Now THAT would be my dream come true!

Chantal said...

I have the laptop with wifi, but on a farm that doesn't get me much. I want to have the fantastic coffee shops closeby like Andrea. :)

Congrats on your purchase!

Congrats! It's hard going back to a desktop after a laptop...

I like laptops too but I'm better at writing with a regular PC. I have an older laptop and I use it when I'm outside sometimes.
glad you like yours.
