Life is better...

with a new computer! I have been saving up for a new computer because the one I was using was Tyler's old laptop. In computer years it was ancient, well, maybe not ancient but definately outdated. It was slow, really slow. I especially had a lot of problems with photoshop on it and with my scrapbooking program (which in all honesty was the biggest problem). I found myself rarely checking e-mail and I had to stop scrapbooking all together, one 15-20 minute page wound up costing me 5 or 6 hours of fragmented work. I would often lose all of my work too because it would say there wasn't enough virtual memory to save my work. Anyway, Tyler has been entertaining the idea of riding a bike to work to save on gas. He's been saving for a decent bike. My sister babysat for us Friday night and we needed to do a free date night so he said he wanted to go look at bikes and get an idea of what was out there and how much it cost. He suggested we go look at laptops at Costco first so I could also see how much I needed to save. We had figured I'd probably be able to afford one by the end of summer. I was very excited. The end of summer isn't that far away. Well, at Costco we found a decent laptop for a decent price, $150 off too. Tyler asked me how I'd feel about an early birthday gift. I tried really hard not to get too excited. I said that I'd love it but we didn't have the money to do that. Long story less long, he paid for the rest of my laptop with the money he's been saving! Don't I have a nice husband?
So, this is a little sample of what I've been doing for the last few days...


The laptop came with Windows 7 and has an awesome movie making program that I've been using to work on the home videos from my camera. I made one from Peyton's birth and put music on it and did some cool stuff. Anyway, I love it, I'm having fun and getting stuff done that has been on my list for a long while.

I hope you post some of your videos on your blog because I would so love to see them. Especially ones with music. :)
