Working in bed - or wherever I want

Lots of good things have come together to make it possible for me to work in any room of my house. I suppose I could even work outside. I know I can work on the balcony, as I've already tried that. I just don't know how far that I can go. Can I sit on the swing under the pecan tree? I'm not sure yet. Can I put a blanket or a chair out front and hang out in the front yard with Lucky and the kids? I'm not sure yet. I do know, however, that I can now work in bed, which makes me so happy. It would be so awesome if I had one of those adjustable platform beds! I'm getting sick of leaning up against the wall, but, I shall not complain about my newfound computer mobility.

Here's the good and groovy chain of events that made all of this happen, though...

  1. First, my sweet Daddy gifted me with a new laptop, which I stupidly thought was a Dell. He has frequently bought Dells, so I think I just assumed it was a Dell. It is, however, a Lenovo ThinkPad. And I think I love it. Heh! Thanks, Daddy!

  2. Secondly, my sweet friend, Amy - asked her husband, Rob, if he had an extra router for me, as mine was pitifully incompetent. He did - she sent. They rock. I'm now the proud new owner of a Linksys Router. Thanks, guys!

  3. Thirdly, my friend, John P., told me about this super-mega-cool program called FolderShare, through which my two computers (my desktop and my new ThinkPad) can communicate with each other. So if I need access to any files on my harddrive while I'm blogging, it's no problem! Totally awesome!
Sometimes the universe all comes together for us in such splendid ways, don't you think?

Now if I could get someone to pay this darn electric bill - I think I'll never catch up with Alabama Power! Where is my sugar daddy when I need him? Haha!
