Happy New Year!

Wow - 2010!! Kathi and I were talking today about how strange that sounds - 2010! It seems like just yesterday we were discussing Y2K :-)!

New year - new computer. Randy and Brandon went and bought me a laptop on Wednesday. Randy needed a computer upstairs in his office for his business, so he got mine and I got the new one! I hate "moving" into a new computer more than I hate moving into a new house! Which is probably why in the last 5 years I've had one computer and 4 moves!!

My brother Dave and family were up staying with us for a few days and Dave knows EVERYTHING about computers! I told him he amazed me, but then I changed that to - he scares me. People like him could do ANYTHING with computers! He set me up to be able to do a lot of my work from home and when he was setting up my new laptop he was in Corvallis doing it all remotely through a share session. I just sat on the phone and watched him maneuver the mouse around my computer - weird!!

Monday night Dave took us all out to Pad Thai - it was so good! An absolute treat - Thanks Dave and Sue!!

Dave also plays piano - how cool is that! I love listening to someone else play!
Dave and I have this ongoing joke about out blogs (in the last year he has blogged twice), and I always tease him about not reading my blog - so we'll see if he checks in now.

rules of new laptops....

#1. put on jammies.
#2. find your MOST comfy chair.
#3. have that dear husband pour you a big ol' glass of wine.
#4. spend a crazy amount of time just surfing the web!!
laptops are made so that we no longer have to sit in hard, boring dining room chairs, by our kitchen tables.
you're free...FREE AS A BIRD..
roam your home.
go sit out in your car.
you can even take it in the bathroom, i'm NOT recommending this, just throwing it out for an option. :)
what i'm trying to say is Laptops are made for moving. so sit on that couch, feet up, hub bringing you cold drinks.....really now, embrass this NEW life dear one! you'll be glad you did. :)
