I got angry, then I cried...

My DH suprised me last evening; we went into a computer store to buy this simple computer; (mine crashed for good yesterday), I was looking at one that was very inexpensive. I told him that it would do. We went to the counter to talk to the clerk to pay & low & behold, he tells the clerk he's buying the one like the one on the show floor up front. I asked him if he lost his mind? He says "no, you need a real good computer so you can get going with your card business & your other crafts"! He told me he really believed in my talent & said he had faith in me. I couldn't believe; this thing does everything but fold your clothes! It has 512 megs of ram? (I guess that's what it's called). I can't believe the difference. I am still a novice at this stuff. Anyway, I just wanted to share this with my friends. I can't believe it! I can actually download stuff without it freezing up on me! LOL! And yes, Karen, I finally got a monitor with sound!!! It's a flat screen. My son & I watched a movie on here today. (DVD). It took me forever to figure out how to play it. LOL!!! I've never seen a DVD movie before. Oh, ya'll quit laughing!!! I guess I just wanted to say that if you believe in yourself long enough & your God-given talents, then great things WILL happen! Thanks for letting me share this post, & know that I will do my best to post great things & help people like ya'll have helped me! Love, Taunia.

Congratulation, Taunia! Wow, a flat screen monitor, too? I still have the old "incredible hulk" here at home. It only has 127 ram and a 20 gig hard drive, (which is the minimum for being able to do desktop publishing) and I have no speakers hooked up either!
You should be able to work very nicely on that machine...what a great present from your DH!
Don't feel bad about the DVD, Taunia...I just noticed DH has one downstairs in his "lair" and I never noticed what it was, LOL! I have yet to try it out either.
You are a blessing to us...I always enjoy reading your posts and seeing your links. Now it's time to see some new creations!

((hugs))

What a wonderful surprise for a wonderful sharing person. I am so pleased for you. Read my response over in craft forum about your lighthouse and you will understand why my new tower is sitting out in the hall, waiting to be hooked up. Blessing to you.

Psst...Taunia, do ya think a really great card is enough? LOL!! I think it's grand that he not only admires your work but tells you too! That probably would have been enough but the super whamadine computer sure is a bonus. I think you have a real catch of a hubby.

BTW...your talent does deserve good tools. Keep up the good work.

Thank you Meggiecat. He is a sweetie. I know alot of women think I'm crazy for not wanting jewelry and stuff. I happen to like 'puters & power tools. LOL.
