Thank you all for your comments - I knew you would get just how traumatic it was - and you did!
And thank you Kathryn, for checking in to see how my new relationship is going (and, btw - what is a Cloudy? I must have missed the exlanation).
As for the new relationship - it's slow going. It sure is shiny and pretty though.
The keyboard is completely different. I was going to post last night - but after somehow deleting my post twice, I gave up. It may have had something to do with the extra glass (or two) of wine . . . but I don't think so, since I just accidently deleted the previous sentence - and have not consumed more than my fair share of wine (which may change if it keeps deleting stuff!). If I recall - it was going to be AWESOME. It's gone now though - so you are stuck with this one.
When we upgraded the computer - we also upgraded to Windows 7. Yeah - it's all shiny and pretty too - but am still figuring some of it out. You know how normally you have that special "undo" button for when you do something stupid - like deleting your entire post? Well, apparently Microsoft decided that it would be hilarious to hide that button. Yeah - very funny Microsoft. I have just found it though - so maybe we won't have those issues anymore.
Well in other news - the closet switch has been made. Poor Hubby. He just walked into his closet; looked around; shook his head and said, "I just don't understand...." He looked like a little kid whose candy cane had just fell into the dirt. It was actually funny. The man cannot stand change (hmmm - then maybe marrying me wasn't the best idea.....)
I would post pictures - but it's not "finished" yet. I want to put up shelves for my pretties (read: shoes). So until I can come up with the extra cash (because hello? I just spent a bunch on a new 'puter and Christmas) it will have to wait. BUT, in the meantime I think I'd like to pick a color and paint the area that will be behind the shelves.....maybe a red - or a shocking pink. I'll have to think about it.
But in the switch I discovered that apparently, I have my own hoarding tendencies (and no! My shoes do NOT qualify as hoarding - they are very necessary!). Apparently, I own 6 white tank tops - five of which are not only exactly alike - but are also the same brand. Ditto with the 5 black tank tops. Admittedly, I do adore tank tops for the summer and under jackets and sweaters in the winter - but seriously? And since I'm confessing - I might as well admit that I also tend to stockpile papertowels and toilet paper. But seriously? That does not compare in the least to Hubby's hoarding tendencies - which would go way beyond pasta and tomatoes, if I let him!
I spent the day with a very good friend today. I took her to a movie and lunch for her birthday. I think she was just excited to get out of the house without kids (she has two tiny ones). We saw "It's Complicated." Do you know - this is probably the first "girl" movie I've seen in over a year (yeah - that's what happens when you live with boys and all your girlfriends have small children)!!! I loved it. It is very funny! We have determined that we must do that more often.
Anyhow - from all your posts it looks as if you all had a great Christmas! And here we are - staring 2010 down. I think (hope) that it will be a very good year!!! Hopefully one without any computer mishaps.....
