There's a brand new computer at our house

Well after two days of headaches and agonizing decisions, I am the new owner of a much better brand new computer. I am thrilled but at the same time I can't help but feel a case of buyers remorse. It happens everytime I make a big purchase, I keep thinging one of the other deals was actually a better deal. I was going to post pictures tonight, but this computer doesn't like my cheap ass digicam. Unfortunately it wasn't until I got home I discovered they didn't include my disks in with my system. So now i have to truck over there again tommorrow.

Warren and I were both so excited about the new computer that no homework got done, and I was so into setting it up my poor son made his own dinner, a can of ravioli and a pint of Chocolate frozen yougurt. I think I just lost my bid for mother of the year, though he is excited for the abiltity to play a lot of games that would have sent my laptop screaming for the hills. I am thrilled to once again go to my favorite sites without getting error messages every 5 minutes.

I still feel guilty. I have so many more important things to spend money on, but I buy so few nice things for myself and this will be a great tool for both of us. So why is my thrill so worn off?

Warren actually got to sleep at a decent hour tonight, and if I am going to get him up in time to do his homework then I have to get to bed. Which means tearing myself away from this computer. Do you know how addictive it is to have a computer that does everything (well almost) that I want it to.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
