Christmas Already at My House!

This is Susanne from Living To Tell the Story reporting to you from MY BRAND NEW LAPTOP COMPUTER!

Yes, folks, you read right! Beloved hubby pulled a huge surprise out of his hat and went and bought me a laptop for my very own! I can hardly believe it! He says it's my Christmas present but once he decided that's what he wanted to do he couldn't wait till Christmas to get it for me! I'll think I'll let it go this time!

I am giddy with the thoughts of what I can do! Just think, I don't have to fight three teens for computer time; I can actually finish a post for the next day in the evenings instead of half asleep at 11 o'clock at night or at 6:15 in the morning. I can actually browse around without worrying about being kicked off because someone has to do something as silly as homework! (You know I'm just kidding there!) And I don't have to wait my turn because someone is in the middle of a level in a game and it dosn't save it from the spot they are at and they'll have to redo the whole level.

Or what about not having to have 100 icons on the desktop, or being able to put my feet up when I'm posting like the doctor told me I had to do everyday. Okay, maybe he didn't say to be posting at the same time and he did say my feet had to be higher that my heart, but come on, details, details. My feet are at least 2 feet higher than if I left them down if I park them on the coffee table and balance the laptop on my lap so that's got to count for something! Or how about I can take it with me anywhere in the house!

You all will just have to forgive me. I'm really excited and now feeling guilty that I'm actually posting about this, but did I say I'm just really excited! Now I'll just sign off and go cook him a really nice roast beef dinner instead of the KD I was planning on!

Wow, what a great hubby! He just couldn't wait...how cute! :-) Luckily I don't have anyone here to share the computer with so no laptop needed...that is until Caleb is old enough to start hogging it!

Enjoy your new toy!!!

That's terrific! What a sweet hubby!

Get ready for this now, "Mom, can I use your computer?"

And practice saying this, "I'd like a turn with MY computer now."

What a wonderful gift!!! I love my laptop! My kids are too young to "take over" so I get to enjoy it for now. I'm so delighted for you! I'm sure you'll love it!!!! I can't blame you for not holding the early surprise against your hubby. ;0) How thoughtful!

That's great. What kind of laptop did you get? I am dying for one. I don't know a whole lot about them, but like you said having to fight the kids for the computer is horrid. Mine use the gotta finish this level to save the game one also. I can't stand that one. I know nothing about the games so how do I know if they really need to finish the level or not. Happy blogging on your new laptop.

PS I am going to show my hubby this post. Do you think he'll get the hint?

Oh how exciting! And how sweet of your husband!! I'm a little green, the best I can hope for is to inherit my hubby's old laptop when he gets a new, cooler one...but actually I am excited about that too! As computer challenged as I am I don't need much.

blessings you lucky duck!

That is awesome. I got my laptop (affectionately known as Lizzie!) this past March. It's been great not to fight over the computer!
