This weekend we had a tragedy happen. Sunday morning went to start up my laptop and…
Right before I had opened Firefox, a little box came up talking about some compatibility nonsense. Next thing I knew it froze.
I assumed it was a new version of Firefox causing this silliness so I restarted it in safe mode (after it failed to start up twice) and removed Firefox. In fact, somehow I had two versions! So we figured that was it so I restarted and….
It froze again.
And A G A I N.
Yes, my Dell is D E A D.
We knew I needed a new computer. I had been having issues and the battery couldn’t charge due to some internal issue so it always had to be plugged in and guess what? It would get unplugged in the middle of my work (thanks to a child, a dog, or just ME) and it drove me crazy. But I had been dragging my feet and now it’s dead.
And it doesn’t even work in safe mode.
So Last night I put a new laptop in my “cart” and I said to my husband “Should I get it?” and he hit the “purchase now” button! He did it…he pulled the trigger I haven’t been able to do.
Because I went for a M A C!
EEEeeekkk. I have no idea how to use one. We have iPhones and an iPad and an iTouch so I guess it was inevitable that we would eventually make the switch. And when I asked my dear blogging friends and my mommy friends it was a unanimous
GET A MAC!
So I did. It will be here Wednesday!
Of course, this does pose a problem this week for the blog. I am writing this on my husbands work computer (Thanks babe!!) but I don’t have a great computer to use until the new one comes…and then I have to learn how to use it (not to mention I need to get all my goods off the dead one…I need some good thoughts/prayers/vibes that I can do it successfully!!!!)
We have an older desk top upstairs but I’m not sure I can get any work done on it for various reasons (location, speed,comfort) so needless to say….it might be a little quiet around here this week! I may get something up but I may not.
So if I don’t “see” you all this week, have a GREAT ONE! If you need some ideas for this month, check out my Fall and Halloween Round Up.
Oh….and one more thing before I head out..
Do you have a Mac? Have any tips for me??
