Retirement is a week filled with Saturdays and Sundays interrupted only occasionally by a holiday.

My Knees Are Knocking

OK…I admit it…I’m nervous. My “secret gift” is supposed to arrive today and my stomach is in knots. Yes…I know I should be excited because it’s what I’ve been talking about getting for months but, now that it’s almost here, I’m a basket case. You see…I don’t know a heck of a lot about computers. There I’ve said it…my secret gift is a computer…a notebook to be specific. I’ve been a computer user for years but, while I worked at the library, I could always call our PC Support Help Desk whenever a computer would go on the fritz. Someone would come out (not always in a timely manner), lay hands on the computer, and everything would be fine. Here at home, I’m the PC Support Help Desk. I’m not sure how I was appointed to this lofty position by my husband but it’s the way it is. Slowly I’ve managed to teach myself a little about computer maintenance when I’ve been forced to by my current computer. But now we’re adding a new notebook to the mix and, to make matters worse, it will have Windows Vista and Office 2007 . So now I will be forced to learn a re-designed operating system and new versions of programs I use frequently. I know, I know…things will be fine and I will love my gift once it comes. But right now all I want to do is throw up.

I loved lynn's answer. I sure hope you enjoy your present and don't get too frustrated. We all know you can't count on me for computer help.
