SERIOUSLY!!!!

I have been without a computer for 3 weeks...THA-REEE freaking weeks! I'm dying! Right now I am at my sister's so I am using her computer to get a post out. It all started with an annoying virus that I thought I had gotten rid of. It apparently opened the door to a really horrible virus that took my computer out. Thankfully I had archived my pictures three weeks before so I didn't have a total meltdown. I gave my computer to a friend's husband who is all knowing when it comes to computers. He worked on it for over a week,  he told me our computer was the first computer he hasn't been able to fix....he works on computers for a living HELLO! So after I digested that awful news I started researching computers...laptop vs desktop...mac vs. dell/hp...honestly it about made my head explode! It had been almost seven years since we bought a computer, a lot has changed in seven years. So two nights ago, after lots of help from Aaron at Best Buy, I bought a macbook. I'm scared of it. I barely took it out of the box last night. It started talking to me. Seriously, talking. I was able to look at a disc with our family pictures on it but that was all I did with it. It is totally itimidating. I'm still not sure if I am keeping it...unless it starts cooking dinner and doing laundry.

Bummer about the computer dying. I'm interested to find out what you decide about the Macbook. We are looking at laptops and have considered a Mac.

Glad you're back on-line even if it is just temporary. I've missed reading your posts.

I realize we had important stuff to discuss when you called me but you should NOT have neglected this big news! I'm so jealous.

I have a Mac and love it, but it takes a long time to get used to. Just give yourself time and it will all be ok.

I wondered where you went off too. Sorry for the pc meltdown-no fun! Matt is a computer guy too and he has always been a pc guy until a year ago. He does all his creative work on his Mac and all his work on his pc. He loves it but said it took awhile to get used to. I say stick with it-I bet you'll love it.

embrace the change! And welcome to the year 2010! Give the laptop to Camden and the girls when you have a question they can figure it out!

Sorry about the computer. I laughed when you said you are scared of your Macbook. I am afraid of new technology of any kind. Even a point and shoot camera scares me half to death.
