Yesterday was my day off. Usually on my day off, Dan and I meet for lunch. It’s a nice time for us to sit and talk without the kids interrupting, and we usually eat somewhere yummy that the kids wouldn’t like. It’s grownup time.
For a while now we’ve been talking about getting a new family computer. We’ve been using my old laptop that we bought in 2008, which is now missing some important keys, including the I.
The I is a pretty important letter.
Plus the fact that the computer would shut down without notice–which is frustrating if you’re in the middle of a Facebook Thirty One party, or, say, a game of Kitchen Scramble.
So we had decided to stop by Best Buy and take a look around at computers. We’ve done this before, and my husband is the “ok I’ll think about this” type of person, so I knew we wouldn’t be leaving with a new computer.
Except we did.
Not because I was “begging” for one, mind you, but because he decided to surprise me with buying a computer and printer on the spot. Sometimes, even after 16 years of marriage, he can still surprise me.
What a treat to be able to type a whole blog post with the I intact. And now maybe I’ll be able to get through that tricky level of Kitchen Scramble.
We all have our important priorities, after all.
