Once again lagging in my posts

YES I have been lagging in my posting once again BUT what is worse is I am also lagging or actually null ;-( in all studio or art work!!!! NOT a good thing!
I have so many fabulous things happening that I just have not been able to take the time to share.
Of course I might also mention the stranger items taking place such as EARTHQUAKE??? yes in DC and in the same week Hurricane Irene?....sooooo now let's see what to share?
By the way Does anyone else wish that one could telepathically dictate to their blog and it automatically post?
A sad fact is I have been spending TOO much time on a computer AND still no time to blog???
Explanation?  I am now a MAC person. Once  If you might recall, I believe I shared my husband bought me a laptop for my 60th birthday in July.
With so much going on in our schedules I decided to hold off on picking up the laptop until I would have time to focus the HUGE learning curve this purchase would bring.
I had made the decision [after having an Ipad for a year] I would go back to MAC versus buying PC this is a huge undertaking for me after using PC's for so many years in my classrooms and well as our home.

Funny in the early years of my teaching career EVERYTHING we did in education was total MAC.... Well then if some might recall or experienced Mac lost the bid wars and suddenly our classrooms became PC land. I still had my Mac at home and as I told the young whipper snaps that have been instructing me in my "One to One' classes the last Mac I purchased cost $3952.74 and that was WITH the educator advantage discount! I have the bill to remind me of this...  It was a G3/250 32/4G/CD/E/56K.
This made me HIGH TECH back then lol lol hmmmm the year was 7/21/1998. Funny seems to have been another birthday purchase lol lol lol.
Well fast forward a few years and MI gave monies to school districts across the State to help get our educators to welcome high tech and become connected! Connected to the Internet that is, we all received Dell laptops with home Internet service free for a year I believe.... my memory always tests me ;-)
BUT my point is this MAC person suddenly became a PC person due to the fact it just became too difficult to fight the system. ;-) Also who would knock being given new technology FREE even? That computer was a Dell Inspiron running Windows ME Millennium Edition. lol I share all this info with you because?
Possibly now you can understand what I have been up to instead of my studio time or blogging?
Yup I still have both those laptops and actually am trying to sort through old files in hopes to transfer to the new equipment, then I also have been attending training classes and "One on One" sessions in hopes to become re-acquainted with MAC. Reston and Fairfax Apple stores have great employee trainers.
It is exciting YES but also EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING!!!!
To end this post one final item I wish to share...this now completes my very first posting via the new "MacBook Pro" ;-)
Wish me luck and I promise to be back to my blogging as soon as the file transfer etc. is completed. {a sucky item they transfer my files = transfer or files between my Sony and MacBook will take 24-48 hours....YUP that means I will be with out either of my laptops! The bright side? Yay! studio time! ;-)

Greetings from Tunisia! Just stopped by from "Quilterblogs". I'm enjoying your blog and your quilts while trying to beat the heat. I've had a Macbook Pro for the last year or so and love it. You'll soon be using it like a pro....ouch!
best, nadia
