Finally!! A new computer!!

Sunday, February 21, 2010

Happy Days are here again!!! My DH got tired of waiting for our other PC to get fixed (lots and lots of issues, dying hard drive, etc.) and we went looking for a new PC tonight. We are now proud owners of a a brand new Asus 6GB Hard Drive PC, including a huge flat screen monitor!! The new keyboard is very slick...literally! My fingers keep slipping off of the keys! LOL!

I love having a PC again!! I can Spark with all my friends so much easier! I've been using my I-Phone to Spark and I can't just click on my friends to go visit their pages. I learned lots of neat tricks to be able to get there! Now I can forget them all! LOL! Oh, and I have to learn to capitalize on my own again. If I miss one, sorry!

Okay, time to install some antivirus stuff, check the laundry and then get to bed. Yiiippppppeeeeeee!!!!!

    I'm so happy for you with your new 'puter!

I know that you are excited too. You might try to eat some buttery CB to help with your fingers NOT sliding off the keyboard. NOT


Enjoy your new toy/necessity!

    Wow - 6GB! You take about a million photos and store them there. So nice to have your computer back at your fingertips. Do you remember, not so long ago, a time before the Internet?

    WooHoo! I never did figure out how to Spark on my Ipod. I got the part about logging in food and exercise, but it was too hard to do the other stuff.

Not the mommy time!

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Both of my children are spending the night at friends' houses tonight! Yippee! DH decided that it didn't make sense to cook dinner after dropping off the boy and before he had to go get our taxes done, so he took me to Johnny Carinos. Sometimes that man has his head on straight! LOL!

After dinner, he went to take care of taxes and I came home. An hour and a half of me time! After he came home (yes, we're getting a refund!), I headed to the gym. The best part is that I will have the house to myself in the morning too!! I can sleep in, go to the gym, try out Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred (reminder - take measurements), or go out to breakfast...or all of the above!! Sweet bliss! LOL!

BTW, update on yesterday's blog. I slept on the couch and apparently didn't snore at all. I've been given a second chance and will be allowed in the bed tonight! I did tell him that if I started snoring to kick me out. He asked "Onto the floor?". Give the man an inch...

Okay, bed time again. Gotta get to bed so I can enjoy my solitary morning.

    HAPPY, HAPPY, JOY, JOY!!! Hope your night and day were all you wanted them to be and that you are feeling better! Nice to hear that a man knows how to treat a lady out to a nice dinner once in a while. I have a feeling you're a pretty lucky lady too. Not to say that he shouldn't consider himself extremely blessed with a woman like you!! You've got it more together than any woman, mother or wife that I know. Okay enough of that. Tomorrow will be time to get up off that couch and get moving! LOL!! Take care and enjoy your weekend.

Snore like a freight train? Who, me?

Friday, February 19, 2010

Apparently the answer to that is "yes me"! LOL! My poor DH moved to the couch around midnight last night but even that wasn't far enough! Maybe this cold isn't as gone as I thought it was??? Tonight, I'm going to sleep on the couch. I can sleep anywhere and he really does need to get some sleep. Poor guy. Can't be easy sleeping with that kind of noise! LOL!

Speaking of...time to head to bed. Nite Sparkers!

    I snore when I have colds...but hubby snores all the time, so we're even, there, lol.
I tend to kick a lot at night, though...and hubby has the bruises to show for it.
I also have a nasty tendency to drool when I have a cold...yuck! Now that's real attractive, but at least it doesn't keep any one awake!

    I know how that goes as my DH is real loud with his snoreing. I have to get to sleep before he does or I don't get any sleep.

Will my computer be home soon?

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Or do we cry uncle and go buy a new one? We had it for one might before it died again. Turns out the hard drive looks like Swiss cheese. Round swSwiss cheese, but Swiss cheese nonetheless. She is attempting the repairs now. Fingers crossed!

If we need to buy a new PC, my list of stuff to save for shifts.

Fridge (or half chest freezer)
Here Come the Mummies CD
Happy Perfume
New holder for my I-Pod

DH wants to add flat screen TV, but he's on his own there! LOL! All I gotta say is I'd better get a new dishwasher before he gets a new TV!!

I need to go to bed now. I don't actually get to lay down because of this darn cough, but at least I can close my eyes for awhile!

    How about a new hard drive? I hope that you are soon feeling better!
I want a freezer too!

    I'm gonna alter your list from afar, LOL

I'm gonna take your PC OFF the list and

replace it with a Mac 'puter

I've had lots less trouble with it than with my DW's PC

Just my take on the situation, PLUS

I agree with CARLANNIE 's idea of lettin' DH get the TV and letting HIM do the dishes! You can tell that I just got off the floor from LMAO, right?

Hope you get feeling better soon too!

CARLANNIE 2/16/2010 2:09PM

    Make a deal: he can have his flat screen TV IF he does all the dishes, every day, from now until 2015. That includes, of course, 'cleaning' up the kitchen after every meal. Hmmm....might not be so bad!

Tell DH that your sparkfriends will kick his butt if he gets a TV before you get a dishwsher. LOL

    It's between a new computer (you won't believe it, I've got my laptop since I started my PhD program in 2002! and it is just only starting to show signs of old age - unrepairable:( and a flat screen TV in this house as well (and someone is alone on that one too!:) I'd say there is a pattern! We just only need to figure out how it works.

Hope you have a good day.

Ate out twice today and barely over my calories!

Sunday, February 14, 2010

DH decided that he would like to take his loving family out for breakfast (yes, the kids came too! LOL!). I did not eat from the buffet and only ate half of what I ordered. Lunch was very light as I'm still not hungry (I know, not normal!!). DH then decided that dinner should be Buffalo Wild Wings. Good thing I had 1100+ calories left!! Even so, I went over by around 100 calories. Good thing we don't go there every day!

I did go to the gym for a very light cardio workout. The cough is still hanging on and if exercise too hard, I sound like a lung is trying to come up! LOL! I even got dinner for tomorrow assembled (lasagna). Now it's time to gather my stuff and go to bed. Nite y'all!
