Back in 2004 my wonderful husband bought me my first laptop in the hopes that I would write the first of many bestsellers on it and he could retire early and become my manager.
He's a dreamer, that one.
Over a year ago the screen died on the laptop. Just died for no reason, but the computer was still running.
My husband said we should just get a new one but I didn't want to buy a new one. I hadn't made any money using this one yet!
So, being the cheap-o broad that I am I
It effectively turned my laptop into a giant desktop PC but who was I to complain? It was still working.
But, I was chained...tethered...leashed. Laptops are supposed to be portable.
Long story short...too late...we invested in a new laptop just a few days ago. It was time. Things were flashing red. Things were slower than slow. Things were having issues.
So, I am now the proud owner of a brand new, faster than a speeding bullet, laptop.
I am hoping it is going to bring me some good luck with it. I would really like to use this one to bring in some extra bucks!
One thing I will have to get used to is working on Word 2010. I have been writing on Word 2003 all this time. Everything looks different, exciting and shiny, but different.
