It was not a surprise. It was purchased with my approval and my money. I so appreciate that he went shopping for me, because he knows what he's doing in a computer store and I don't.
He helped me with the initial set-up, did all the file transfers, and installed some of the software that I use. I probably could have done this, but he did it much faster and with 100% less muttering and groaning.
Thank you, Jeff!!
I now have a touchscreen, Windows 8.1, and a new version of photo managing software. They are all requiring a learning curve when I'm not distracted by personalizing the laptop so I am functional and happy. It's like getting a new puppy - one forgets how much time this takes.
Also, I need to mention that I have a new car, a new house, and a new marriage which all require a learning curve.
It's all good, especially the new marriage. I wouldn't give any of it back. I am so glad to be retired so I have time for all this learning.
Why am I writing this?
- A diary for me of this time period.
- An excuse for not blogging.
- A declaration that I will be blogging again when I get done figuring out how to do it Windows 8.1 style.
