My New Laptop is Coming!

I got great news today.  My new laptop has officially shipped!  My computer has been growing slower and slower over the last few weeks.  I've done everything I can to make it keep up with my pace, but to no avail.  At this point it's an old system, so it probably is about  time to replace it.

I have to tell you though, I didn't really need an excuse to want a laptop.  I just needed a reason to justify it.  This summer will be so much better than the previous two.  I won't be stuck in my little office when it's beautiful out.  I can just pack up the laptop and  bring it out to the backyard or take a walk down to the park.  What a great way to work!

I didn't even take any paid assignments this week, simply because my desktop computer has been so temperamental.  I didn't want to get caught with a deadline that I couldn't make because of my technical issues.  

The laptop is still supposed to take 3 to 5 business days to get here, but that's okay with me.  The only thing I'm a little nervous about is it comes with Vista as its operating system.  I've never used Vista, and quite honestly, I've heard a lot of negative things about it.  I figure I'll need a day or two just to play around with it and figure out how it works.  So, if I disappear for a couple of days next week, now you know why.

If anyone out there has encouraging words about Vista, I'm all ears!
