Well....I finally bit the bullet and splurged this week. I paid a ridiculous amount of money for a tablet computer. Don't get me wrong....I love it but over all it's just too much $$. I justified it by telling my self that I really missed keeping up with everyone since I'm not inclined to turn on my laptop when I return home from work at night. Then there was the fact that I got a bonus (happy dance) from work. It's hard to believe I've been there 3 months now. The last reason was that I have not really "treated" myself to anything these past few years so I knew this would make me happy. I'm all about being happy these days. ;-) Life is short!
I had it delivered at work on Tuesday this past week so I would have the long weekend to play with it. Tuesday night I stayed up until 1 a.m. catching up on blogs and emails...lol. Wednesday night it was 2 a.m. before I got to sleep. I know ridiculous!! Needless to say my butt was dragging by Thursday so I went to bed at a decent hour.
It's Saturday now....I watched my first movie on it this afternoon....cool....I'm just sorry that Netflix doesn't have an app for it, yet. I'm not so sure about reading books on it. I just like the feel of paper and folding back the pages.
Wednesday night when I got home I created my first video with the Xoom. Just like any other proud "cat mother"...lol..it was a video of my cat, Missy. Had I realized everyone was going to be able to see the dust on my chairs and baseboards I probably should have thought about dusting first. It's a little too big to see on the blog page but you can see it full screen here. Oh well...it's my first attempt and I hope to get better at it. I can now video chat but I don't know anyone to chat with except the "man who broke my heart" and it's unlikely I'll be chatting with him.
So....that's what I've been up to lately. I'm hoping to get some sun on Sunday since the doctor told me I am deficient in Vitamin D. Imagine that living in Florida?? I take that skin cancer stuff seriously so I seldom just sit in the sun.
I'm not sure about the 4th, yet, but I'm sure I'll be having fun doing whatever the heck I feel like. Let me know if you have a tablet computer and what you enjoy most about yours.
Cool - sounds like fun. I actually bought a netbook a couple of months ago so I could sit on the sofa and write - and NOT be connected to the internet. :-DReplyDelete
I was surprised with an iPad at Christmas...but figuring out how to blog with it has been a challenge. If you have any tips, let me know!ReplyDelete
I love using it where ever we go-and sharing pictures, too. Tough at first, getting used to a Mac after all these years with a PC but I wouldn't give it up for anything!
Enjoy the weekend!
Good for you, Cherry Chick! It sounds like you deserved this new toy! I got an I Pad for my birthday and I am also slowly learning how to use it as I never had an Apple product before. I hope to be able to take it on trips and not have to lug my lap top along. I'm not sure I'll be able to figure out how to blog from it but I will help me read e-mails and read and comment on blogs.ReplyDelete
Your kitty is really cute! I loved how she was nudging your shoe at one point!
