Still Busy

Whew! When will the craziness end?! With having to design headers for the After Christmas Giveaway which is in full swing at RS Designs, the last thing I needed was computer difficulties, yet that is exactly what I have been dealing with. Our monitor problems became so bad that Mr. Incredible decided it was time to bite the bullet and get a new computer. Oh, yes. Our computer was not wanting to start, either, which played a major role in Mr. Incredible's decision.

Last night, we packed up our Samsonite luggage and headed toward a larger town about 35 minutes from our home. (We didn't actually pack luggage for the trip, but sometimes it feels as though we should!) We hit Best Buy and Circuit City. Prior to our trip, we had done some research on the Internet and had an idea of what we wanted. We found an HP Pavilion that met our needs and purchased it and a 19" widescreen monitor.

I was nervous about making the switch from MS XP to MS Vista. So far, it is going alright. I have had to go online to download Vista-compatible drivers for many of our accessories, and I have not been thrilled about that, but otherwise the transition seems to be going smoothly.

My family's Christmas celebration was supposed to happen today, but about half of the family have caught a virus and are throwing up, so the rest of us decided to postpone the celebration. I wonder why we decided that! *laughing* Since we didn't go out of town, we set up our new computer and played with the girls today. We all had fun.

How is your weekend going?
