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! 🙂
