Sometimes it really is good to be me. Lately, it’s been rather fabulous. I’ve been wanting to get a macbook for a while now. My Dell desktop is getting on in years and is not as reliable as it once was. This is a problem because I use it when I’m working from home to connect to the office. At the same time, the office has been having severe network and IT issues. So if it’s not my home computer crashing, it’s something at the office that is preventing me from getting much done.
Of course, a macbook is not in our family budget. It was however, in the office budget. So I know have a macbook pro. And while it is for work purposes, I’m using it for some other things too. So score for me!
I stopped in at my local Starbucks on Friday because it’s one of the stores doomed to be closed in a week. The barista started apologizing for the fact that I got the wrong drink on Monday. It was the wrong drink, but I didn’t know it until I was well on my way to work. She didn’t make the drink but somehow knew it was wrong. She asked if I had been in since and I said I hadn’t so she gave me my drink on Friday for free! Seriously–they’re closing and yet they still have the best customer service in town!
DH surprised me by letting me purchase an inexpensive video camera. It happened to be at Target tonight (I was planning to get it through Amazon) so we brought it home. It’s charging now and I’ll play with it tomorrow.
And more importantly, things are just going well over all. We’re all healthy–there’s no major emergencies. Life is really good these days.
