|I've heard you're supposed to have more fruit, so I got a new apple. Heh.|
I'd been wanting one of those baby laptops for a long time, just because. I'm a techno-freak, a gadget girl, and a longtime Apple Mac user. Those commercials for the MacBook Air had me lusting for one of the sleek little machines.
Of course, I couldn't afford one, and I really didn't need one, so I just tucked the thought away for, you know, someday.
And then someone wanted to do something nice for me (I don't want to share the details here). After a couple of back-and-forth e-mails and phone calls … UPS showed up with a very light package and here we are, laptopping away.
Since it's a Mac, there's not much to learn – it's very user-friendly and nearly all my computer experience has been on Macs. The one thing I find myself doing is trying to capitalize letters the same way I do on the BlackBerry – by holding the key down a little longer. And I hit the trackpad instead of the space bar. I'm sure I'll get used to it soon enough.
Party prep is moving along. I did the messy stuff yesterday – frosting. The mixing corner of my kitchen was covered with a thin film of powdered sugar. But, since it's done, now I can clean the kitchen! I haven't created a schedule yet, that probably wouldn't be a bad idea. I have a list, but a timeline would really help me get through this week with some sanity intact.
It would be nice to appear somewhat sane when we greet our guests Saturday afternoon – five days from now, but who's counting?
