NEW LAPTOP!

I finally bit the bullet and bought a new computer. I found a good deal on a Compaq at Circuit City in the price range I can afford for now. It's nice and portable and it contains the features I need for the time being, although I'll most likely be upgrading the RAM if I run into any snags. Compared to my old PC, this ones blazing! My old desktop is nearing eight years old and was slow and out of room. It was (is) running Windows 98 and I couldn't run any new apps on it at all. I wanted a Mac Powerbook but in reality it's out of my price range at the moment. Also, as you may know, Mac just came out with an awesome Intel dual core processor laptop which I think is going to probably replace the Powerbooks. I know some Apple stuff is probably going on sale soon, but even so, I have decided to postpone making the switch to Mac. I am still quite interested in that prospect and will consider it in the future.

Roger and I are finally getting back into some serious (but fun) music woodshedding. Right now we're in the process of building our songlist and thinking about sets. It feels good to be moving forward again. I seem to have been in a bit of a slump since well before the holidays with the remodel and all. I was heavily stressed out for months. Thank God things are turning around and I am coming into some sort of clarity again. I think settling back into the house helped a lot (Christine, I'll have some pics up as soon as I can). I have not been online regularly at all and it's good to be back.

I hope all my friends are doing well. I look forward to re-connecting...

I like that phrase, "musical woodshedding"!
Interesting to read about your new laptop, I know nothing of those things, so any info is good~

Waiting patiently for pictures....

They're coming, Christine, I promise. I only hope they won't be a letdown after all this time...
