Whew, I am now the owner of a brand new computer. I am so thankful!
I have missed my blogging friends! Yes, I did say "friends", didn't I? Keeping up with each other through blogs is not quite the same as gathering around the kitchen table with a cup of coffee, but it is definitely a gift in my life!
So, what have I been doing this month? Well, I've been BUSY attending classes preparing me to be a "tax professional" this income tax season. Then, as soon as I got my computer up and running this morning (it took me 3 hours!!!!) I sat down and did some computer-based training.
Speaking as one fluent in "instant gratification via the credit card", I'm SO happy that I held out for real money to buy the computer. I can now attest that I CAN WAIT!
Then, as a testimony to God's perfect timing, a man who specializes in "hauling off junk, and finding ways to recycle" came knocking on my door this morning. So, he now has my old broken computer, as well as a perfectly good printer that simply doesn't "fit" with Windows Vista.
I feel like I'm almost missing out on Advent this year. I'm grateful for my lesson in waiting, though. Isn't Advent about waiting? "Oh come, oh come Emmanuel"!
