The W Family Chronicles

The resident computer geek is in heaven…

Posted on: June 4, 2007

Yep, that would be me.  I finally got my new computer.  Circuit City had a great deal on a Compaq package, plus they had Office on sale so I went ahead with it since we had the cash from the yard sale.

I am still trying to figure out Windows Vista and all of the new features, but I’m hoping to have everything up and running soon.  I need to get the wireless internet card installed and everything and then transfer stuff from the old computer.  Let me tell you something, though…a 19″ widescreen is almost TOO big!  I can’t sit back far enough to see everything.  My old monitor was a 17″ standard and I wanted something a bit bigger but this thing is just huge.

The yard sale went very well…we even sold D’s old truck!  Almost everything sold and what didn’t was immediately taken to Habitat for Humanity.  We went from 2-3 dozen boxes of stuff, plus lots of large things, to just 3 small boxes.  I’d call that a success!   Plus we made almost as much money off of all of the “stuff” as we did selling D’s truck.  Can’t beat that.

And seriously, only 1 person commented?  Come on!

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
