It kept me up late last night just staring at it and holding it. It’s so different than the one I already have, yet it seems easier. It’s less fussy. I don’t think I will spend as much time with the older one now. This is my new love. My life seems complete now. Yes, I am head over heels for my new laptop, my MacBook!
For years now I’ve been subjected to a Dell computer that almost drove me to insanity while wedding planning. It just quit working one day, not even a year into owning it, in the thick of all the wedding planning chaos. I had invitations to design and programs to print and that fucking piece of shit crapped out on us for no good reason. And then I had to sit on hold for days on end with various men with thick Indian accents who kept insisting their name was Bob…all of them. It took 2 months to get it back up, and that was with the freaking warranty! Then my husband, seeing how much I wanted to pee on the Dell and then light it on fire, bought me a Toshiba laptop. It was a nice gesture, but my bad luck with PCs followed and the laptop froze up shortly after the one year warranty was up. We can’t even get it to start up anymore, even after spending half as much as the damn thing cost on various repairs.
After much back and forth, we finally came to the decision to pay the extra cash for a Mac. My family is a Mac family. I actually got the first MacBook (those really cool bubbly colored ones – I had orange) from my dad when I went off to college. It still works, too! However, it can’t hang on the information highway these days. We also purchased every extended warranty available. So hopefully I will be blogging from this baby for a long time to come.
Of course, as soon as we got it out of the box and charged, I was just itching to sink my fingers into a good project, and I knew the perfect one. I’ve been dying to put together a slideshow of the beautiful pictures our friends, the Regetis, took of Kendall at the hospital when he was only 12 hours old. I’ve tried a few times on the PC, but there really was no easy way except to do it online with a membership to websites like One True Media. So I kept putting it off. Well, once I got the hang of how to get around a Mac again, I managed to get the slideshow together with less effort than it took me to locate the CD with the pictures on it (good Lord, our office needs an organization intervention).
Of course, now I must show it off. It’s so sweet. Little man was so small, yet I remember thinking at the time that he was so big! He really was a big newborn, but man, I had no idea just how much the Kendall 10 months later would dwarf him. So here it is….
Another big thank you to Amy and Srinu for the pictures! We miss you guys.
Kendall is 10 months, 1 week and 6 days old.
