Got My Computer

This time I was up early just in case he arrived early, and when my son left, I left the door open to let him know I was home. The computer arrived just a few minutes ago and I'm sooooo happy! Could be an understatement. I really want to get it set up right now, but I'm going to be patient. I sign the lease tomorrow, pay the rent, and get the keys. It's just one more day. Well maybe more than that since I also need to wait until AT&T does their thing on Monday afternoon. Still I can be patient. Yes I can. I know I don't have a lot of patience, but I'm going to force myself to do nothing more than LOOK at those boxes until I take them over to the apartment and unpack them. What, you don't believe me? I can do it. I will do it. Patience will be my middle name from now on. Okay, time for me to get off here and get packing. I have a lot I want to accomplish today. Talk to you later. I hope you're having a good day. Thanks for reading.

So glad that it has arrived, and you're right to be patient - it's no good unpacking it, then having to pack it up again to take it to the new place.

That's what I'm telling myself, so it's still packed. I'll take it with me when I start to move things over this weekend.

That's exciting. I don't blame you for being impatient, but it'll be great when you get moved and unpacked.

I got more accomplished today, and will get more done tomorrow after I sign the lease and get the keys. Looking at the time, that's today.

Doing my best. I don't have Molly to guard them from my prying fingers. So I'll just need to imagine that stare of hers. Yep, that should do it.

@Corbin5 That's why I know if I picture that stare, I won't touch those boxes before I take them over to the apartment.

That and everything else. I have books to write, and I also have a game I play, so I did myself a favor and got a gaming computer.

Leave the box sealed and shut. Do not peak. Maybe you should check to make sure it is really in that box. What is the box has a big rock in it. Maybe you should check.

I am happy for you I am supposed to get my computer back this weekend. I know what it feels like to have to wait. I just moved and I am still unpacking. It took two weeks for the internet company to come and set our service up. This has been one of the busiest summers I have had in a long time. First I went on a vacation then came back from vacation and have to go right back to work the same morning of arrival. Get back and pack now unpack its just busy busy busy.

@OKennedy My computer will be set up tomorrow by AT&T. No waiting. I'm not fully into my new apartment yet. I'm still packing. Took one load over yesterday. It feels good to get it started.

It would drive me nuts to wait but I would as well. It will be easier and safer to transport your computer in the boxes.

It will be easier and safer to transport them in the boxes. Yes, it's driving me nuts because I have a perfectly good computer behind me in boxes, while I work on this one that has lots of issues.

Not yet. I thought of it, even looked at some on Mayfair.com. They're very reasonable. We'll see. Right now I'm going to put Chippy Jr. on my drafting table and use this desk as an el extension. It's really too small for this computer. So we'll see how it all works out. It won't be the first time I used the drafting table as my computer desk and it does have plenty of room on it.

@just4him is it comfortable as a pc desk? If it is I'd say forgo the desk

@Jessicalynnt I'm not buying a new desk. I'm going to use the one I was using before as an extension as noted. I have plenty of room for it to do what I want. Yes, it is comfortable. What's not comfortable is the chair I'm sitting on. I can't wait to get my office chair over here.

You're a stronger woman than I am, although under the circumstances I agree that it's a better idea to wait until the computer moves to your new home!

@just4him It's also so much safer for moving the computer. When I moved, I had my husband's computer in a briefcase and my computer was with me the whole time. And they both moved perfectly. But having the new one in the box is the best way to move it to make sure it makes it there in one piece!

@CRK109 I set up my computer yesterday at the new apartment. Now I'm only waiting for AT&T to arrive tomorrow to get everything hooked up and I will be on the new computer from now on. So until I'm completely moved in, my time on the computer will be vastly limited to my time in the apartment.

@just4him One thing about a new computer specially from a company like Dell is you will have full support even if you have a few questions.
