Dadguy is so proud of me.... he says I am getting geekier by the day. His heart goes pitterpat when I talk about "browsers" and "downloading some new code" for my blog template. Although I used to make a living doing computer graphics both in the sign industry and freelance, I have kept myself as much out of the nuts and bolts of the ones and zeros as possible. The possibilities are endless. I have endlessly kept myself aloof... till now.
It is with a surprising lack of sheepishness or chagrin that I announce to the Internet that I want my very own laptop. I'd REALLY like an awesome laptop that can run Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator smoothly, but I'd settle for my very own blogging hook-up that I don't have to fight the Chaos Girls for (to say nothing of World of Warcraft). I want a beauty that I can take with me into the bathroom and lock the door. We already are a wireless household, it shouldn't be that hard.
Sigh, how spoiled am I that instead of a laptop I am getting a family room in the basement. It's a sacrifice, but as a family of 5 we now could use the space. So Wednesday night we are having our very first contractor come to give us a bid. Wish us luck. Wish our funds sufficient to the task... and if you want to come and visit us... wish us enough to somehow finish a guest room and bath down there too!
Photos to come.
*Until I can get to changing my template around again, we will go to a larger point size for the type... the Mother Superior A.k.a. Grammy is getting her eyes upgraded, but in the meantime... I hope this helps.
