My New Birthday Gift

Having a birthday in mid December has always been a bain to my pleasure loving self. So many years presents got combined and parties overlooked, whether due to financial strains, overloaded schedules or simply a case of "too much, too much!"

On the other hand, I love having a birthday that is smack dab in the middle of the prettiest time of year. With the hint of snow in the air, the festive decoartions in stores and along the streets, houses lit up with lights, its a fun time to celebrate.

This year the party is starting early! Last month my laptop died and I have been sharing my hubby's which has seriously cramped my web cruising. Not having access to my pics or being able to download anything, plus our printer doesn't work with his laptop ... ugh!

But cyber monday morning, he announced that he had just done almost all of his shopping for the season! I think this is the first year in our 25 years that he has finished his shopping before me. Gotta love online shopping.

And tonight after dinner, he presented me with this beauty. My new inpiron mini. Its adorable and fun. I'm typing on it right now and the keyboard isn't that much smaller than I'm used to. I can't wait to discover all the goodies it has to offer. And I'll soon have pics to put on this blog once again. Its a good thing!

Til next time ...
