OMGoodness! So exciting!
Dagan and Leah picked up the MacBook last night...
...and since I want to use it for writing... ...I could get the iWork program for half price with the purchase of the MacBook. I said yes. It's like the MS Office program, I guess. **** Leah used the ScorPal on our huge stack of cardstock...
...while Dagan concentrated intently on fixing the desk computer...
...while setting up the new MacBook. :)
I love these chicklet keys that are spaced apart!! Much easier for me to type on.
This is my old slanted reader's table that I have been using with...
...the cheaper Gateway laptop that is so slow.
Dagan fixed the problems with the viruses. The Gateway laptop just wanted a renewal--but the desk computer--well--those warning boxes about a virus actually was the virus. Good thing I didn't do anything it asked me to do to get rid of it. Was hard enough to get rid of it because it blocked routes or something. But Dagan figured it out. My techie hero! ;)
So--the backup Gateway is tucked away in the closet. I am on the desk computer because I have no clue how to use the photos/camera with the Mac yet--or much of anything, for that matter--hehe! I have a long way to go before I am comfortable with how it works, that's for sure. But--so far--I really like it! :)
The new mouse (with a wire) we had gotten from Best Buy a while ago for the desk computer has been quitting on me off and on since I got it. So Leah took it with her last night and is going to return that one tonight after work, plus use the Best Buy points I got, and get me a MacMouse! What the heck! I decided to go for it. It is all alien to me anyways, right?
It does feel almost like when I got my first computer. Altho--I do know what "scroll" means now--ROFL!
We won't get any crafting done tonight, I doubt. Which is fine with me. :) Leah didn't get a chance to play with the Mac at all last night...plus she can't stay long, has a few errands to run after work, and is tired. Needs to rest up. They are driving down to Minneapolis for Dagan's pacemaker checkup on Friday.
Me--you can bet I will spend a little time trying to learn how to navigate on the MacBook. :) I have over 50 emails to respond to. It's a sunny cold day--5 degrees. I'm way too tired to wash clothes--maybe tomorrow. Just feeling pretty darn happy today--but I'm really tired, too. :):)
