It was delivered to my grandparent's house, and it arrived this afternoon. So, when I got to their house, I told my Mommom that I would show her how it all works. I hadn't realized that she had NEVER seen a computer up close before. Or at least, no one has ever sat down with her and shown her what exactly a computer does. She was absolutely FLOORED when she found out everything you can do on a laptop (and especially on a Mac). I showed her how to play music, watch movies, create documents, upload photos and arrange them, how to chat with other people, how to use photobooth (her jaw is probably still on the ground from when I showed her where the camera is, and explained that you can "talk through video" with other people who have a camera). It was really neat to be able to do that, and she was "just so tickled!" (note: my grandfather is the cutest man alive.)
I am BEYOND excited because Em and I decided that for labor day this weekend we would meet halfway in Ashland, VA (right near Richmond) and spend the weekend together! We're meeting up Friday night and staying at a cheap-ish hotel until Monday morning at checkout. While we're there, we hope to just explore the area, maybe catch a movie, maybe go for a hike (if it's not POURING), and possibly visit a friend who just transferred to Randolph Macon, which is about 7 minutes from where we're staying. (Kelly- if you read this - we're going to call you in the next day or so!!) I am sooo happy that we're doing this! Even though I just saw Em last week, it was stressful being in NC and trying to take care of everything that I needed to take care of, while trying to see everyone who I wanted to see. This weekend will be a chance for us to relax and have some time to ourselves :-) I can't wait!
