This has been a pleasant weekend. The weather is beautiful. Nick is enjoying his golf weekend and Mollie and I have been visiting and doing the last minute packing as she heads out to her summer job this afternoon. Gulp! I made the comment yesterday that I had always driven her to camp and that a part of me wished I could take her up there now. She said “Yeah, there’s a part of me that wished you could still take me, but eventually you have to be a grown up.” To which I replies, “I’m trying!” Really I have no doubt that she’ll be fine. I’ll keep you posted.
Nick should be home later this evening. I gained a pound last week which didn’t really come as a shock, but now I need to work on my “It’s all Mollie’s fault” story. There are lots of reasons, I told you we eat more when she’s here, there are more snacks around, her love of cooking and finally just the fact that I wanted to spend time with her this week doing things together, rather than me heading off to the gym alone. So I would rush home from work each afternoon to share one of our favorite activities – napping! Often she had begun without me, but I was never far behind. She would snooze peacefully on the couch while I was napping away in my recliner. I mean that’s mother/daughter bonding if you ask me. That’s not all we do of course, we do eat together. Wimpy hopes Nick buys all this; Badass, on the other hand, plans to be eating chips and donuts when he walks in. I’ll let you know how things go.
On to this big decision I need to make. I’m ready for a new computer. I don’t do wild and crazy things with my computer. My needs are basic, I want to be able to get my email and check facebook. I want to be able to blog – reading and writing and I want to be able to write my fiction. Not much really. I want the hookup to be on the left hand side, I’d like to be able to scroll more easily than I can on my current one and most of all, I’d really like a battery that can last more than four minutes.
I think I can get a PC that will do all of this for me. But Mollie is really pushing for me to get a mac. (We’re back to its all Mollie’s fault.) She insists that they are sooooo much better, once I get used to it. Of course there’s the rub. Will I be able to learn to use it myself without her here to show me everything? She often says “Once you go mac you never go back” is she right? Decisions, decisions. My question to all of you is:
Taking the cost out of the picture completely –
which is the best computer to buy? PC or a Mac?
Please help! I value your opinions.
