I almost forgot it was Friday and nearly missed posting Friday Favourites! Just a reminder, anyone can play along and write about a current favourite (absolutely anything, book, movie, song, quote, blog, person, place, memory, a single moment - ANYTHING) but please sign the Mr Linky and let us all know :) Today - my favourite new purchases that arrived this week. My laptop and the new treadmill! I'm in love with both.
The laptop is especially helpful, as it lets me be downstairs where all of Elliot's toys are kept, and not have to coop Elliot upstairs in our non-child-friendly computer room. I can check my email and know that Elliot is safe and happy. And surprisingly, I spend LESS time on the internet, since the laptop graced our home, so even better! N looked around for ages for my laptop, and we almost bought one before Christmas, but I'm glad we waited. Not that I know a single thing about computers, but apparently this one's a lot better than the one we were looking at (more memory, new Windows something like that) I've wanted a laptop for YEARS and now I have one! Yay for me!
And the treadmill (once it's taken out of the box) will allow me (hopefully!) to shed those pounds around my hips (and stomach, thighs, and ass of course) and I can reach my target of losing 15 pounds. Wish me luck! It was a bitch getting that heavy thing up the stairs, and we'll now have to rearrange the (heavy) furniture in the computer room to accomodate it, but I have to keep repeating it to myself 'it will be worth it, it will be worth it' And I will stun you all with my sleek, new image once it's worked its wonders! :)
