Why buy this?

When you can buy this?



{MacBook}

Please take a moment to welcome the newest member of our family, Mr. MacBook!! We are both thrilled to have been able to purchase him. He's thrown me a bit of a learning curve but I'm dealing with it daily. It actually a very smart machine and like the guy at the Apple Store said, "You just have to train your brain to forget everything that you do on a PC and then it will be a breeze!" It's really user friendly, the manual has very minimal instructions in it and thankfully the local Apple Store offers free classes that I might take advantage of since there are some things that I just don't understand.

So now, a task for you!

Questions that I would like to hear you answers to! Leave them in the comment if you wouldn't mind!

1. What is your primary operation system, PC or Mac?

2. Have you used a Mac before? If so, what did you love/hate about it?

3. Any tips for the newbie with the non-Mac skills?

4. If you have a PC, have you thought about switching over?



Happy Friday!

Primary system - Mac and love'n it!
If you need to check on software for Mac, a great site is www.versiontracker.com; they've got all sorts of goodies; we love it! They even have recipe programs for your Mac.
The Command button comes in handy and "control" mouse click is the same as left clicking on a PC mouse. Enjoy your mac; we love ours!!

I have now owned a Mac for over 2 years now. It is a love/dislike relationship. I grew up with PCs and I can do anything I like on them. It was a long process to learn the Mac. I love how pretty things look on here, but hate how little control I have over where things are stored on the mac(at least thats the way it feels).

3. Any tips for the newbie with the non-Mac skills?
I am not sure- just mess around. you will get it. Do try to think "stupider" when installing things. My husband and I got really stuck because it was too easy.

4. If you have a PC, have you thought about switching over? I might go back to the PC next time I buy a computer . . . I have not decided.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
