How many computers does it take...

I need my own computer! Or rather, my hubby needs me to have my own computer so he can get this one back.

I do a lot of work on the computer- my apron business, shopping for fabric deals, getting labels, cards, etc. I also do most of my regular shopping on the internet- clothes, gifts, books, etc. And, I do the occasional blogging (hear that hubby? the occasional blogging.) and a lot of emailing, so I rely pretty heavily on the computer. In fact, when the internet is down, I break out into hives!

My son has also discovered his love of computer games. I tried to keep him from it, but it is pretty much impossible when my husband loves them as well. (No, he doesn't play them often, but it gets pretty frustration when he does want to use the computer and I'm on it. I understand that.)

So, there has begun a battle for the computer in our home. We are all quite civilized about it, though- "Mom, when you are done may I please play my game?" "Sweetie- would you kindly unglue your behind from in front of the computer so I can have a turn, pleeeeeeease?"

We've decided it's about time to start looking for a second one. I don't want to spend a lot of money, and it doesn't even have to be new. I would like to be able to access the internet in a resonable amount of time, though. So, I am shopping around.

If any of you have WAY too many computers lying around your house, let me know!

I wish I could help you out! I loved your Pioneer post, by the way. I have such a great respect for them too!

We would all DIE without additional computers...

I have one, the children share one, Brian has his laptop AND his work laptop... and while my inlaws were out of town, we handled their "business", so I had their laptop too.

Blessed be the computer!!!

I love my laptop with the power of a thousand burning suns.

Jon could totally Frankenstein a basic computer for you or help you find a good deal on one. (I even asked).

Drop me an email. :)

We are currently shopping for a new laptop...we have a laptop and a desktop, but we just think it makes sense that both Seth and I have a laptop so we can sit and spend "quality time" next to each other on the couch as we surf the net, digital scrapbook, do homework, etc. He he.

Anywho...Seth is the alltime master of finding tech deals, so if you tell me (well him realy) what you are looking for and how much you want to spend, he will find it for you - it may take a couple of weeks, but it will be found! Let me know.

no such thing as too many computers. Hope you get one of your own soon. It is a special brand of heaven to not have to fight for a turn.

found you via AM, great blog! and I love your aprons

We have a couple. I was actually looking at them today while I was cleaning the basement. I don't know if they are any good, but they would be great for kids playing on them. Eason can have a slow one right! :) Call me and let me know!

We also have a laptop we will be getting rid of is missing a couple buttons and is a little slow too, but the letters still work and it's probably nothing Wes Smith couldn't fix for you. We just got it two years ago. Let me know!
