Computers are raining on me.

Today. I did a lot of household stuff. I cleaned and I cooked, etc. etc. etc. I really wanted to walk down to the Farmer’s Market this morning but I needed cleaning supplies, so I drove out to the Jackson Road Meijer instead. And then. I began. I began with the Landfill Chitchen. I haven’t been here in a while and the GG does a good job but there were some things I needed to clean up. Under the sink in particular. Mice? Not recently but there was a certain musty smell. And then, I put on some bat clothes in order to go to The Mall and buy some new sheets at Macy’s. Because the sheets we were using were all ripped up. It was time.

I continued to clean up the chitchen for most of the afternoon. And then. I randomly decided to hook up my iPad to my loverly old 4-year-old MacBook. Let’s sync this baby up, okay… For about the third time in the last year or so, I could not download the latest system updates to my loverly old MacBook because there was no disk space available. The last time this happened, I managed to dump a bunch of stuff. This time? I dunno… I didn’t have the guzzinta. I was done! I told the GG that I was about ready to upgrade. I could’ve just bought my own computer if I had wanted to. But I do like to check with the GG too. And he was UP for it, with a glint in his eye, even. And so, we configured a MacBook Pro and he called our local Apple Store and I changed back into my bat clothes and we headed out to the mall and.. bought… me… a new computer.

My new work [Windows] laptop is scheduled to arrive on Tuesday. I really think it is too much for me to receive two new computers in one week. We will see how I do. I hope I don’t get hit by a lightning bolt.

    Nice!! My netbook has gone to Senegal with Ashley, so I only have the two desktops and my school laptop. I am feeling bereft. 😉 Alison’s MacBook is nearly 3 years old; should we be looking for a new computer for her? I thought Macs lasted a LONG time; that’s the only reason I was willing to pay that price.

    I’ve had my existing macBook for 4-1/2 years. It still works fine (I’m typing this comment on it) and I haven’t even needed to replace the battery. But the hard drive is full. So, once I get all my files and stuff transferred to the new machine (I’m gonna pay Apple to do that for me), I’m gonna clean this one out and the GG will use it until it dies.
