My Pink Laptop

Two weeks ago one of our two laptops died and there is no bringing it back. It served us well. We bought it used four years ago for $200 and figured if it made it through a whole year, we were doing well. So, four years later, we have to appreciate the little Vaio.

Last year for my 40th birthday, Steve and the kids surprised me with a pink Dell laptop. My very own laptop that I didn't have to share with anyone!!!! I could get it on when I wanted or leave it when I didn't matter because it was always waiting for me and me alone.

Now, my pink laptop is the family laptop until we can get another one for the kids. I like to think I am not a selfish person, but when it comes to my laptop, I kind of am. I like having it all to myself. I am trying to be nice and think of it as a good time for me to do other things on my "To Do" list, but my brain isn't buying it.


  1. We have only one computer, a desktop, and I feel the same way. Even when I'm not using it, I don't want anyone else to, because it's mine! LOL!

  2. I can relate to this, too. We also had just one desktop computer until my childrn went to college and got their own and I got to have this one all to myself. And I like it that way and feel very possessive when someone else wants to use it!
    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog!

  3. We all share the computer and sometimes it seems like the kids are never going to get off of it.. I'm kinda selfish about the computer too!
