Last summer I was on top on the world after I won an emachine netbook. My poor old laptop from schooling/teaching was on it's very last leg and I desperately needed a new computer. It was perfect timing and I had really wanted to try out a netbook. It ran great at first but a few months ago it started sloooooowing down. By last week I would click on a blog and walk away from it to wait for it to load. Frustration, to say the very least.
I have been picking on Hubs for sometime now to buy me a new laptop. He went on travel last week for business and I told him to bring Momma home a laptop shaped prezzie. I was kidding, well not really, so when he got home he announced that I would be getting a new laptop!
At first I was super happy and then the Momma guilt set in. I feel bad having new things for myself anymore. I will gladly buy anything for Hubs or Little Bit without blinking an eye but for myself the guilt creeps right on in.
We went to Best Buy and found a Sony on super duper clearance and it came home with us. You should see it load blogs at the speed of i5 core processor. Momma loves her new silver baby. With every loaded blog I feel a little less guilty and a little more blessed.
