Wherein I don't embrace change.

New computer-windows 7
Taking a deep breath and counting to ...a million


Went to the baby shower Saturday night. I'll keep it short and sweet-we were finally served dinner at 9:30 (Got there at 6) Pam, Geri & I were chewing on the tablecloth by then. The food was really good-at least what I can remember since I inhaled it unchewed in minutes. The place was nice and the room very pretty but VERY NARROW. More like a corridor. It made getting around kind of difficult and I couldn't really get any pictures worth showing. Since I wound up being the driver, my plans for having a few were dashed and I had to remain completely sober. A nice buzz would have helped a lot.
The result; I love my best friend Terry more than you can imagine and I love her son(I love both of them)too. I wish things were a bit different with less tension but it was a nice welcome for the baby about to be born very soon. Nuf said...
The quilt and diaper bag went over really well. I ordered it from Suzan at Hazelnut Hill who I've mentioned before. It's gorgeous. I really wanted to keep it myself. It's a perfect travel bag and very chic. When I can show you a picture I will-soon I hope. The next bag I get will be from Suzan. Getting tired of giving these very cool bags away. I want one for me.

I will return when I can figure out why the world needs windows 7. I really was so comfortable with my old computer. This is still a little overwhelming and it does things that it takes time to figure out. I don't have that much time right now.
Hope you have a lovely day. I've got men replacing sheetrock today-dust galore and I can't go anywhere. They're almost done, thank goodness.

Sorry you couldn't sit at the bar and "miss" the shower! I can't wait to make a bag for you. I promise nothing but gorgeous!!s

I'm with you on this one! I don't do change very well. My desktop computer has XP and my laptop has Vista....I'll take XP any day over Vista! I don't even want to think about Windows 7!!

Sorry it wasn't a great evening for you. I took a peek at Suzan's bags and they are gorgeous!! So treat yourself to one....just don't make it a diaper bag! Unless you have something to tell us!!!

My new computer has windows 7 and it is taking some real getting used to. My husband broke down and bought me a "Windows7 for Dummies", at my request, but I haven't had time to read it yet. It is certainly faster but other features from XP are just not there! Arrrgh!

Sounds like you will need a few tonight! Cheers.

Well, you need a bag and a drink, clearly.

I hate changes with the computer too. Honestly, how different could Windows 7 be??

I don't manage change well either . . . . hope you are adjusting *s*

Love me some Mozilla - we have been using it for a long time now and haven't thought about 'exploring' our way back *s*
