Yep, I finally did it. Don’t faint, OK? I bought a new computer.
That’s all? You say. For me, this is a big deal. First, I don’t have money to spare. To pull this little update off, I had to push my single credit account into the atmosphere. I almost fainted! But I had to. It was time. OK, fine. It was way past time. I kind of use my computer almost every single day.
My old computer was a little Acer 10 inch that I could slip into my purse. I had everything set up the way I wanted it. I had my favorite, most useful programs all ready. It’s taken days to set up the new one It was necessary, though. My computer was about 7 years old. (Yes, 7, stop laughing). It worked pretty well, it still looked nice, and did I mention it was small and cute? But it was slow and getting slower. The cursor was jumping all over the place. The keyboard was looking rough (no idea why…) It was time.
So I put my cute little baby aside and bought an inexpensive Asus laptop. It’s also black, an 11 plus inch screen. And the dreaded Windows 8.1. I was sure I wouldn’t like 8, but at least it was 8.1, so maybe they’d ironed out a few wrinkles. The weird thing: I really like 8.1. The bigger screen is great too. Easier to see what I’m doing. The keyboard is a bit stiff, but either I’ll get used to it, or it’ll loosen up—or both.
Bottom line, I wish I’d given in earlier. So Granny’s updated.
Wanna brag about a computer you love, or grumble about one you hate? Have you held on to things longer than you should? Traded “up” and wish you hadn’t?
Have a great week!

Congrats on the update!!! I know how hard it is to have to put aside your best friend and keeper of all your secrets but as you said it had to be done and way past time. I’m going to have to check out your book. Enjoy your new best friend.
I’m not good with changing any kind of technology. Takes me ages to sort everything out.
