My old computer, a wonderful hand-me-down from my programmer husband, has a horrible reception of wireless. And since we are expecting me to be fairly confined to bed for the next few weeks, R and I talked about getting me a new MacBook with a 2 GHz Intel Core duo and 512 MB of SDRAM. (Really fast, new, and cool.)
I decided we shouldn’t. I won’t get paid till June 15 and I don’t like to buy things on time. Even time I can pay off at the end of the month. (Doesn’t mean I don’t do it. Just that I don’t like it.)
But R said that I’m going to be “chained to the bed,” and not in a good way, and I needed to be able to access the internet.
So I got a new computer.
A further point on the chained to the bed… We only have one TV and it is upstairs. Stairs I have been told I won’t be able to climb for 6 weeks. So I guess I won’t be watching TV any time soon.
