i'm baaaaaaa-aaaack!!!

so i'm back from my hiatus with a shiny new computer.  the hp was all burnt out, not able to be fixed.  so we're stepping out with an i-mac.  i think macs are the cigarettes of the 21st century.  you know what i'm talking about, right?  the old cigarette ads that made smoking look so cool- well now we have mac commercials making us want to be cool.  to fit in.  and i fell for it.  it's just too pretty.  and now i can talk like i know stuff...because i use a mac.  smart and cool?  that's worth the hefty purchase price right there!

i have to say, not blogging for a while freed up lots of time for me.  we have repainted the kids room, mod podged a table, spruced up the bathroom and the kitchen and read.  books.  without cords.  so now i'm trying to take it slow.  not suck too much time up on the computer.  which is hard for me.  especially when i know just how cool i look whilst i'm on it.

oh- and after watching a british movie last night, i've decided to start using the word 'whilst'.  see how much you can get done without a computer?

I've learned not to spend too much time on my computer. But since we've moved in the house, we disconnected the tv and it's amazing how much other things we find to do..especially reading and talking to each other. Actually, I think my husband is listening to me instead of Criminal Intent SVU!

ROFLOL...

I have a Mac. I guess that makes me cool. Except I'm thinking of getting a non-Mac lapbook. Which will make me not cool again.

I agree with RiverBend -- I'd much rather give up the TV than the computer!! But yeah, it can suck up some time.

I wanna see pictures of your makeovers!

I JUST BOUGHT A MAC TOO!!!!!!!!!!! like 2 weeks ago. just a plain old macbook. i didn't want to be one of those nerds driving a fancy macbook pro whilst having no idea what kind of engine i had underneath the hood....

Missed you, glad you are back with a shiny new computer. I guess you are the coolest blogger on the block.

Ahhh yes, the Mac club. I'm part of it too. But, I'm a non-educated owner. When fellow Mac owners try and speak "Mac" to me, I'm often at a loss.

But, at least I feel cool

and its pretty sitting on my desk

and its lightening fast

and its never been sick.
