Back in Action

Wow, almost a month without my computer. I felt so disconnected. But – all is well, I have a branny-new laptop. Actually my computer guy, Chris, won’t let me call it a laptop, I have to call it a notebook. That’s because he says I’m not allowed to use it on my lap. I wonder if that is why I go through a laptop every two years, could be??? Anyway, I have a new one now and one of those cooler pads so I can use it on my lap, but I will try to get used to calling it a notebook. I don’t want anyone to confuse it with a netbook. I got my husband one for Christmas and he hasn’t used it yet. He really wanted it too, go figure. Anyway, I made do with it while I was without, but I really didn’t like it at all. I don’t like the tiny screen and the fact that nothing fits right. I used it a couple of times with the old desktop monitor I had and that was better, but then I had to sit at the desk! No fun. Well, I am on the internet, but I still don’t have everything loaded on my “notebook” yet. I don’t have Word or my Creative Memories picture program or all my documents, pictures, etc., from the old hard drive. I need Chris for that. Oh I suppose I could do all that, but it’s better when Chris does it because it goes on right the very first time. Besides, there are always these other little things that I forget, that he remembers. So I will await Chris’ arrival for that.
I must say that we had just backed up everything from my computer on to an external hard drive the day before it died. Can you believe that? I have everything and didn’t lose a thing. Really exciting since I lost the hard drive in its death.
That’s about all for now. I have many things I’d like to blog about, but way too much other stuff to do now. Bye for now.

    There's nothing worse than losing everything on your computer! Thank goodness you were smart enough to back it up. We've finally gotten into the habit also. I'd just die if I lost all my photos!Thanks for stopping by my blog, Ellen!

    Yes I do not call them laptops as I think i gives the user the idea that you are supposed to use it on your lap. I prefer a hard cool surface.
