Got the new computer

I got my new computer at school today.  I wasn’t able to do much with it at school without being able to connect to the internet.  I haven’t decided what, if anything, I will uninstall from it.  Now that I’m home, I’ve be working on getting all the “stuff” that I need on it.  Right now I’m using Windows Live writer to post this blog.  This will be the first time I’ve used this so we’ll see how it works. 

So far I love my new computer.  It is very pretty and runs very fast compared to the old system.  I have the other computer set up next to me as I’m using it to set up email stuff and deciding what I will transfer to the new computer.  So far I’ve downloaded Firefox, Mozilla thunderbird, iTunes, and Yahoo messenger.  I’ve installed my Microsoft Office suite but it is the 2003 version instead of 2007.  I figure that I’ll wait until 2010 comes out in October before I upgrade. 

It has been a few sad days for me lately.  One of my cats, Tecko, who is really my dad’s cat is very sick.  He’s not doing well and is probably not going to last much longer.  But he’s around 16 or 17 years old and has had a good life.  He’s lost weight over the past few years, but in the last couple of days he’s taken a turn for the worse and can barely get around.  He is really trying but just doesn’t have the energy.  I’m just trying to make him as comfortable as possible right now.  I really hate this.  This is why I don’t want more pets.  I hate when you have to let them go and deal will all of this.  It makes me very sad.  Yesterday I left him in my room with towels around in case he got sick and left him some water and a shallow litter box – he still tries to use it like he knows he is supposed to.  I came home at lunch to check on him because I wasn’t sure he would even make it through the day but he was hanging in there.  Today I didn’t come home at lunch but I did leave as soon as my last class was over.  Well, it makes me sad to write about this so I’m going to stop now.  I’m going to keep working on my computer and get it all set up.

One of my biggest fears is of Maggie getting older. I was thinking yesterday what I am going to do if she can't jump up on the bed with me any longer. I would have to get one of those doggie step boxes. She's only four years old, but it still worries me. She is my "wife", my companion, the love of my life.

I am so excited about your new computer. I wanted to know details and you didn't disappoint me. I love hearing what programs you are using and I am excited you are trying Windows Live Writer. I couldn't live without it now days. I've been using it for months and months.

Well, I will close. I just had to share my enthusiasm for you and your blog this morning. It's been so nice with you writing regularly again. I look forward to new posts everyday. Afterall, I've told you this a thousand times, but I'm your biggest blog fan. :-)

I'm sorry to hear about your cat.

I am sorry to hear about your cat. I know how hard it is when you get attached to a pet and then they get sick or die.
