The Newest Estes


So I came home from work the other night after the longest day of my life! My laptop had died while I was at school, trying to write a paper. Now the battery didnt die, the computer died! It has been trying to die for almost three months but Derek and I keep bringing it back to life. I was so frustrated, I almost threw it on the ground. On top of that, I had so much homework to do and my editing deadline is coming up so I had a ton of papers to edit by this weekend. I went to class pouty and then proceeded to work for 6 hours. It was just one of those days! Derek was being weird and not answering my calls and stuff, which only fueled my fire. I came home wanted to crawl into the fetal position under the covers and never ever come out. Instead, I opened the front door and saw a beautiful, white iMac box on my counter. The water works began! I was in total shock. I read Derek's sweet note and hugged that boy till I remembered that I had a fun new toy!! We stayed up way past our bed time setting it up, playing and marveling over the sleek new computer. I am so grateful to Derek for this sweet surprise. It really will make life so much easier! I can do all my papers on here, and editing will be so much easier. I am so excited to officially be a Mac family :)

By the way, he quickly told me that this was birthday, anniversary and Christmas for the next year... We'll see ;)
