I’m a bit of a geek. Not much, but a little. My husband had to set up some things on his computer and I volunteered for the task. Figured out why his Firefox install wouldn’t open the new tab to the page he wanted it to, too. Now it works like he wants, his computer is set up like he wants, and my guy is a happy computer camper. In all the years I’ve known him, I don’t think he’s been as pleased with his computer set-up as he is now.
For that matter, that goes for me too.
My little tablet came in a few days early – joy jumps galore! I got the Kindle App on there right away and now I don’t have to read on my little 2” phone screen, and I don’t need my reading light. Now I have a big (by comparison!) 7” tablet screen. I think I downloaded close to 30 books that night – all free, so the tablet has already paid for itself, and I’ve only gone through the first couple hundred items of Google’s free section. There are over 15,000 items in there! It will take me months to go through it too, so I won’t suffer from any reading shortage for probably years. Hallelujah! I felt like a junkie getting multiple fixes all at once. Oooh, that one looks good! Click! Hey, I’ve always wanted to read that one! Click! And like magic they show up on my tablet, ready for me to dig in. The thing I love about my tablet is that it does everything my smartphone does, except the phone part, only bigger. So I can web surf, download apps, take pictures, and have a kick-ass eReader too. All for less than the cost of a Kindle. Technology is so awesome. And I am so grateful. A mere 6 mos ago the thought of actually owning anything like this seemed like some kind of impossible dream. God is good.
My house is a disaster though! I spent so much time setting up computers and running around and yes, being lazy too, that I didn’t get a wisp of housework done. It shows! It’s the kind of day to throw a roast in the oven so I don’t have to worry about dinner while I get my butt in gear and get some stuff done. Monday has its advantages! Often it’s nice to get back in the groove, back in the routine of things. It gives me a sense of accomplishment in a way, and a sense of accomplishment is a wonderful thing.
So how was your weekend?
