Getting up close and personal with my laptop? Until recently I have never used my laptop computer on my lap. (My lap is up close and personal. Well, kinda.) I have always treated my laptop like a desktop PC. My laptop has been sitting on my desk connected to a large auxiliary monitor, speakers, printer, mouse, and keyboard as long as I’ve had it. I started out long ago with a desktop before laptops were ever imagined, and I have continued this way, reluctant to change. Possessing a laptop did not inspire me to change my habit, but don’t think I can’t change. I’ve been forced to make major changes in my life many times; yet, why would I volunteer to change something when I like the way it is?
Steve and I are about to embark on an adventure that will drastically change our lives. We are not being forced, of course. We want to do it. I’ve shared our plans often, but for anyone that doesn’t already know, we are going to sell our home and purchase an RV, a motor home. There will be no room in it for my desktop computer. I need to be the old dog that learns the new trick. I will change and like it.
Here I am preparing this post on my laptop, which is sitting on my lap. The battery icon flashes me a message when I care to prompt it. It says I have three hours and forty-two minutes to finish this post. Don’t you hate a deadline?
