I am not sure what makes me happier, me getting my new computer or no longer having to share a computer with D!! I love the man with all my heart but certain things are not meant to be shared and computers are one of them. I like having all my favorites right where I want them, and my files organized as they need to be, etc. Not to mention I can get on line whenever I want and not have to worry about interfering with his work.

When did all of this happen, when did having a computer become a necessity? Back in my day (I know I sound like I am a thousand years old) it was a big deal if a family had a computer in there house and if they did and it could access the internet you thought they were really important. Now people (when I say people I include myself) often have several computers/laptops in their homes and no one still uses dial up, do they? I can't believe how times are changing- what next, people will be accessing the internet via their cell phones (wait, I do that now) okay so really, what next?
