Happy Days Are Almost Here Again...

After waiting two weeks (almost), I have my new computer. They tried to deliver it yesterday at 10:30 in the morning. But of course, we were not here... uh, we work.... So then they said they would make two more attempts - one today and one tomorrow. So I stayed home for awhile (went into work a bit late). Didn't come, so my husband stayed here. It finally arrived at 2 P.M. Typical. If we are not home, it comes early! If we are, it comes late. I was hoping it would get here earlier so he could get it set up. It will get set up eventually, I know. But I'm getting quite impatient. After two weeks of no blogging, as I can't load pictures onto this computer - no printing - as this computer is not hooked up to one - and no listening to audios or videos - because this computer is so old, it has none of the new fangled software you need for those types of things loaded on it! whew!! That was a mouthful - LOL! Then we realized that there is no thingy on the computer for me to put my memory card into to download pictures. I've been doing it that way since the USB thingy gave out on it. Not sure I'm saying that right. We tried to find a new USB cord for it, but I guess the camera is too old. No one seems to have them. So today I went and got an adapter where you plug in your memory card and then plug the USB cord into the computer and download that way. Only $13.00 - so it was an easy fix. Let's just hope it works! So hopefully, soon my computer will be up and running and I can get back to blogging in the way I enjoy - with pictures!

I'm glad to hear that you got your new computer!! I am still waiting on our new laptop, and of course I can't get a human to answer the phone at Dell. It's been 'preparing for delivery' for awhile now, but my card hasn't been charged. :P Urgh. Enjoy yours, learning all the new fangled things that it can do! :)
