No clutter. (In here, anyway. Definitely incentive to keep going on that.)

No dust. (Repeat row 1 from here to finish.)

No more 20-year-0ld blue carpet. It looked nice–once. But this matches the furniture and the tile in the entryway and it just makes me so happy to look at and to squish my toes in and the fact that the installers were wonderful started off its presence here with happy associations. Richard having thrown his back out between the quote and the installation, we needed more help moving stuff than we’d expected. They tried not to let us pay extra for that. I finally got a better number out of the guy on the extra labor–and then I about doubled it. They’d earned it, and I wanted them to be happy to come back to do the living room later.

No more 12-year-old Windows XP computer, either. When Microsoft said they would no longer support a system that was on about a quarter of the world’s desktops and on machines sold as recently as two years prior, my reaction was, Go ahead. Mac my day.

We’d been saving our pennies for months to replace both ours and now we have.

More baby pictures: Parker admiring the baby, then, Parker holding the baby, looking rather dubious about this. Or studious and trying to do it right.

I can’t wait to see Madison crawling and later walking on this. It’s finally here and ready for our grandchildren.

The carpet looks great! Having new carpet is almost like getting a whole new room! Ours is long overdue for replacement too, but now we are (seriously?) considering a move to FL. We’ll see. I am more than ready…Hubs, not quite there yet. But then, he has a 94y/o mother here. I understand and can be patient.

Congrats on drinking the cool-aid! Er…I mean coming over to the Mac side. A few months ago I gave my iPad to my daughter, & traded in my 17in MBP on a 13in MBA. I love it! It’s so portable, and now I only have two devices to deal with.

I went to a Mac years ago and have never looked back. I hope you are as satisfied as I am. Congratulations on your new granddaughter! Happy Holidays!
