Nerding out

So, I'm not linking up for weigh-in Wednesday today. Between Mardi Gras drinks and eating on the road, the scale is not my friend today. Oh well, I'm not going to stress about it.

I'm working from home today which means that I actually have a little extra time to catch up on all my favorite blogs. I can't believe how behind I am. Jason and I got our tax returns so that was an excuse to basically buy out the Apple store. We don't buy each other Christmas presents for this reason. Everything was delivered today which was the main reason I stayed home. I don't trust my neighborhood enough to leave large boxes on my doorstep all day.

We did actually need a new computer. Last year, the girls accidentally spilled a cup of water on Jason's laptop. Instead of telling us about it though, they closed it up and went to bed so it basically sat in a pool all night. I can't even begin to tell you how pissed he was. So after that, we had to use the Dell computer that I bought in 2002. My ex got the newer computer in the divorce. He also got the newer car and I got the piece of shit minivan. Moral of the story: don't cheat on your husband, you'll get the shaft when it comes to the divorce. I digress.

Turns out only the hard drive needed to be replaced in the laptop so we got that taken care of. All the music and pictures are gone though, so that still sucks. We then bought a new Mac desktop (don't ask me the model, I have no idea) and I got myself an iPad Mini. Jason is practically beside himself that he's not home to play with all the new toys. He was telling me how he could hook something up to the Airport and then have it play over the surround sound speakers... (my eyes may have glazed over at this point) and he was giddy over all the nerdiness. The man does not get excited about much, but nerding out is an exception.

Okay, now I promised a giveaway when I reached 50 followers and I am now at over 100 (squee!) so a giveaway is long overdue. However, I don't know what to offer. It seems like there are so many giveaways going on and I don't want to be a copycat. Wait, isn't that a form of flattery? So, tell me, what would you, my faithful readers, like to receive? Gift cards, workout tanks, Brady Bands? Sorry, no iPads. My tax return wasn't that big. Just leave me a comment letting me know what you would like and I'll get the whole thing worked out.

Oh, and if you like giveaways, please head on over to Holly and Kristen's blogs for a chance to enter. Ends Friday!
