I'm Officially Addicted

     So yesterday I wasn't able to get my normal recipe post up and I plan on doing it very soon if not tonight, then tomorrow. My husband is in school and just started a new class and he needs the computer a lot.  He's been taking it to school and work, and we only have one laptop so I haven't been able to get on it much.  I wasn't on at all yesterday, and I missed being able to look at everyone's blogs. Granted on vacation I didn't go on the computer at all, but that was different since we were busy or relaxing. Usually every night I go on for at least a bit and I missed it last night. Now that he needs the computer more we were talking about possibly getting another laptop or a tablet of some sort.
     If anyone out there has some advice or a laptop or tablet they love let me know. Money is a factor as well for us to consider.  What we were thinking about was a laptop, Ipad, or acre tablet. Hopefully we'll decide soon because I miss being on here and posting from my phone is a pain.  Plus I just got on Pinterest and think that may be a new obsession.  I've also been working some posts that are taking me longer then I thought.  I started writing some more personal stuff, but keep taking breaks and rereading it because I want it to all come out in the right way. At first I thought it would just be one post, but I think I may have to break it down into a few. I'll also have some great giveaways coming up soon.


  1. Hi! I wanted to stop by and thank you for joining the Planet Weidknecht Weekend Hop. I hope you'll join in again.

  2. Ooh, it sounds like you're working on some great stuff! :) I'm looking forward to it! :)

  3. There are netbooks that are available for less money than laptops at and (probably many other places) I have heard that the hp touchpad is no longer being produced and have had many sales.

    Good luck finding something so you can get back to your blogging! I'm addicted too!

  4. haha, i was just telling another blogger the same...i spend 8 hrs on the computer at work, then a few more after the kids sleep, and i'm on my blackberry in between. my laptop died a while ago, and i've been on my daughter's netbook. of course, the screen is smaller, but it gets the job done at a fraction of the price!


  5. I;m a HUGE fan of my Sony Vaio...and my advice is to go to a place like Best Buy and try to find returned items or open boxes. You can usually get an expensive item for MUCH less!


  6. Hehe... I'm a total addict as well. If my husband is using the laptop, I'm guilty of practically drooling over and chomping at the bit to get my hands on it!

    It's a nice idea to get a tablet, but one thing to consider is that most of them don't have a keyboard, so it might be difficult to compose blog posts on them (unless of course they accept a USB keyboard... then you're all good). I don't know enough about tablets to tell you much... but there are often clearance sales on them happening at sites like and, you can also look at and dailycheckout... sometimes I get lucky with those too. But I've seen them going for sub-$100 on there.

    Good luck! Oh, and I'm a new follower from the Give a Hoot Wednesday Hop! Congrats on being the featured blog! Hope you can drop by mine sometime! I write a humor blog about all things motherhood at Misadventures in Motherhood.

    It's usually good for a laugh, and sometimes even a snort or two! Hope you can drop by!

    Smiles, Jenn
