Blogging Blues

Hi friends! I wanted to let you know that I'm still here. Unfortunately, our laptop is not. After five years of faithful service, our Macbook bit the dust about two weeks ago. During the first few days of being computer free (I don't even have a smart phone!), Ben and I congratulated ourselves on how well we were doing without technology. We said it was great to have a tech detox, and that we'd do more reading and house projects. But let's be honest... AFTER those first few days we were going crazy. So we tracked down our ancient laptop from a storage box in the basement and lo-and-behold, it's still ticking!

Granted, many websites don't work (I miss you, Facebook and Google Images), it is slow as molasses, and there's not enough memory to even think about loading on the hundreds of new photos building up on my camera. But hey, at least we can do the basics!!

We have our eye on a particular computer, but it turns out a shiny new version will be hitting the market sometime this month, so we're trying to hold out. I mean, who wants to buy a computer that will be outdated a week later?

So thanks for hanging tight - I have all kinds of tidbits to share with you, like Max's 2nd birthday party and my adventures in making all-natural food color for his green dino cake; plans (and failed efforts) for some home and furniture updates; and more! But unfortunately those will have to wait until we snag that new computer, hopefully sooner than later.
