Maybe a Mac convert?

I got a brand new MacBook yesterday.  The training was really interesting and I'm impressed with the capabilities of this new computer.  I don't know if I'm a convert yet, but I think it will be fun to play with.  The picture was done using the photo booth program.  When I got home yesterday I was so excited about getting it hooked up on my wireless internet but had some issues which turned out to be a very easy and simple fix, but I had to create a little havoc before I realized the stupid mistake I made.  So needless to say, I did eventually get it connected after a lot of silent swearing.  As a matter of fact, I am typing this post using my new computer.  I've used Macs before so it's not totally unfamiliar to me, but it takes some getting used to.  There are still some PC features that I prefer, but I guess I just have to deal with them.  Actually, I'll be getting Windows installed on this machine so it will basically be a dual platform.  The yearbook program we use is a Windows version.  So the verdict is still out, but I'm having fun, so that is a good thing.

I was up until midnight last night but slept well for once.  I woke up at 7-something but didn't get out of bed until a little after 8:00.  I started cleaning the guest bedroom since my aunt and uncle are coming this weekend.  I also brought both my computers in here since I need a large area to start working on the reunion stuff.  I need to get dressed and headed to the post office shortly so I can mail the hotel check for Nationals.  My aunt and uncle are giving Josh $1000 to help pay for the trip.  We did get about 1/3 of it (or $300) in donations from some friends, family and a couple of teachers.  

Well, I better get busy and get some work done today.  I'm off to a good start... just need to stay motivated.

Awesome! I love new toys. Especially of the computer variety. Hope you are well today. I've had a busy day and am glad to be home.
