Finally! After numerous problems involving reversed credit card charges, incorrect tracking numbers, and a total of five (yes, 5!) different toll-free numbers to try and get things sorte, my Dell laptop has finally arrived. I've only been using it for about an hour and ... I hate Windows 8.1. Who's stupid idea was this? OMG dumbest set up up ever. Fortunately a friend of mine had gone through the hassle of figuring out some of the tricks to getting it set up so its a bit more user friendly. The situation isn't great but its workable and with time, I'll get used to its little annoying quirks.
And with the arrival of the new laptop, I'm looking forward to an increase in my blogging activity. Its a lot more comfortable writing from my new chair or the couch than it is from my 'desk' (an Ikea table and chair!). I'm going to set myself some sort of blog-challenge beginning in January and am hoping that some of my blogger friends join me. Now...I just have to figure out what I'm going to do... If anyone has any suggestions, let me know!
