New PC

It always surprises and frustrates me when shopping for computers how vastly and quickly the prices fluctuate. I’ve been comparing spec’s and prices since January. I’m patient. After all, there’s nothing wrong (precisely) with our old computers except that they are old. They still have the original stickers proclaiming that they are proudly running Windows Vista. I upgraded to them so Richard and I could play Unreal Tournament 2004. They still run browsers, Outlook and Word. They are serviceable but…

Changes and Updates

We’ve owned our house for over a year and it still doesn’t quite feel like home to me. We haven’t been in it for a year yet. That’s in July. But, there’s been many times that I’ve wondered where I put something and my references for where to look have been empty. I only know where I would have looked for it in our old house. New house, did it even move with us or did we let it go?…
