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 wanted.....it 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.
