Please Accept My Apologies ...

So, I've been really bad about posting and even worse about commenting on the blogs I follow.  I think about a month and a half ago, the bottom row on my keyboard (on my laptop) started acting up. It would work sometimes and not others.  It was super annoying, but I was able to get by, albeit a little frustrated.  I would get half way through a post or a comment and it would stop working.  So I would just give up.  Then a few weeks ago or so, my home row stopped working as well.  As you can imagine, it was next to impossible to type.

So, I went to the Apple store to see if I could get a wireless keyboard and just keep using my computer.  It was a fairly inexpensive way to work around the problem. My computer could see the keyboard but it didn't want to work with it.  I planned to make an appointment and go back to the store and have the Apple people help me figure it out.  I also figured that if that didn't work, I could try using a keyboard plugged into the USB port.  Again, a fairly inexpensive way around my problem.

However, neither of those things happened .. my YD and my OD started asking me questions about which computer I would want to buy, so I decided to hold off on making any purchases.  I wasn't sure where they were going with their questions, but I had a pretty good idea. 

To make a long story short, my wonderful family (my father, my husband, my sons and my daughters) got me a computer for my birthday.  So, instead of fumbling around with a makeshift solution, I have a brand spanking new MacBook Air!! 

I am so excited to be able to type all the words I want .. and it's light and easy and great!!

Thank you..

Now, I have no excuses for not commenting on your blogs.  I promise I'll be much better about it.

Computer problems aren't very conductive to blogging that's for sure. Congrats on the new computer. Happy Birthday!
