DUDE, I got a Dell

My new laptop computer (Birthday gift) arrived this morning! Yeah!!! I am not 100% sure of what I am doing, but it sure is exciting.

I’m not use to typing on a laptop yet, especially when it comes to using the mouse on here. Looks like some games of solitaire may be helpful for learning how to get my fingers use to using the mouse pad on here?? And speaking of the keyboard, my laptop has the number keypad to the right of the regular standard keyboard.. I am so happy to have this on my laptop b/c of all the number keying I do when it is time for my annual Fat Quarter Bingo Game! What a great surprise!

I’ve played around with a few of the things.. like the web cam that is built in. I’m not sure if I can figure out where the few photos I took are save to add to this post or not? The operating system is Vista and I’m exploring my way around. Still a lot to learn.

I have installed McAffee, Office and even connected to our wireless Internet so far. I think I’ll wait until David gets home before I attempt anything else. He is much better at all of this than I am and I don’t want to risk messing anything up! ;)

Yeah, for the laptop!!! Something I have always wanted! I can just see myself now sitting in a variety of places, typing blog entries… reading Internet…. And perhaps a few web cast chats with friends! I know Tracie has a web cam, anyone else??? Please email me and let me know if you ever want to chat. Of course we will have to schedule a time… :P

I want to make sure I am presentable. And another fun thing about the web cam is holding up the kids so the other person I’m chatting with can see them. Of course, that is something saved for the end of the conversation… b/c once they see the keys all they want to do is start playing with them.

Well, gonna wrap this up for now. I need to get some housework done. You know, load the dishwasher, fold clothes… the dull boring stuff. :P

Love from Texas!


  1. Hey, I have a webcam on my laptop! We can chat sometime.

  2. LOVE the header picture on your blog! Congrats on the new computer!

  3. Hi.. that is a beautiful quilt top and little girl on your header. I love finding new quilter/crafter blogs. Thanks for visiting.. and I'll be back to see what you'er doing during naptime.
    And yes.. I know what you mean about the quilt in pink. There really should be a better way to auction those off.

  4. I hope you've had a few more minutes to play with your new computer. I feel like I blinked and now summer is about over. We have been so busy this year, it is just crazy.
    Check in again soon :c)
