I decided it was time to get my taxes done yesterday so that I could reap the rewards of a healthy refund. Boy, what a refund. I guess home ownership really does have its advantages when it comes to interest and taxes. Seeing as how I got this nice return coming back at the end of the month, I would spend a little bit of it on myself. So, I bought a new notebook computer. I couldn't pass it up for the price and the features. It has a good processor, big hard drive, DVD-RW drive and all the other bells and whistles. What really sold me was the operating system. I have heard so much about Windows Vista that it frightened me and there was no way I wanted a computer with it. This computer came with Windows XP Pro. Bonus. It also came with some software I don't care for, like Office 2007 60-day trial and McAfee Security Suite trial. I don't like trial software because it costs money after a while. Give me my free software.any day. Now I'm free to wander about the house again and it may just inspire me to blog more (this is a Wednesday post). I've only been able to keep up on blogs if I was sitting upstairs at my desk. Don't get me wrong, I love my computer room and I will still go up there regularly, but I need to move around. We may even see the return of Trivial Tuesday. Let's see what else I can come up with. Have a good day.
