bright and shiny

Taxes are done (finally) and our returns will be pleasant! 🙂

I went ahead and ordered myself a present, a bright and shiny new laptop, in sunshine yellow. What better way to welcome spring? And it happened to be on sale, this weekend only, for $330 off of $999. You know I’m a sucker for a good deal! It’s nothing fancy as far as laptops go, but it’s more than enough to do what I need it to do, which is write.

Actually, I take that back, a writer needs Word. It doesn’t come with Word or Excel, which is a pretty crappy scheme from Microsoft to get you to spend $150 more to buy the Office package, which I did not do. Hubby assures me that this can be worked out 😉

And after my bright and shiny present, we will still have a hefty chunk to put into our “house fund”. Happy tax year to us!

So in about three weeks, you all will be hearing from me a lot more often, from whatever room I want to write in, whether it be blogs, or novels, or emails, whether Dylan is awake or not. Writing and writing and more writing. Yay! 🙂

  • Happy refund to you! That’s a great bargain on the laptop, too. We’ll be getting something back, but nothing substantial, it looks like. We had plans of new flooring and perhaps bedroom furniture. Ahh well, maybe next year. What we do get back this year will go into the “fix the house” fund, instead–namely, a new water softener.

  • Ah, yes, after we’ve bought a house, then I’m sure we’ll have a “fix the house” fund too. In any case, it’s better than paying out 🙂
