But then, I also love the "past". Love the romance of handwritten notes (although my handwriting, if you've ever seen it is not exactly "romantic".....more "early physician" than "early 18th century".)
I love the seemingly slower pace of the past, but I'm sure they had LOTS to keep them busy! And if the truth be told, I'm not sure I'd be able to move around in layers of petticoats, hoops with panniers, corsets, and dainty little slippers...I'm kind of a klutz!
So, I've embraced my 21st century technology and even gave it a mini-makeover this weekend!
My little Mac was not mine originally, it is a hand-me-down from my husband. It came to me with some of the letters worn off of the keys, and I have to admit, I contributed to some of the faded and disappearing letters myself. You really had to know where the keys were on the keyboard to type on mine, or you would type some "creative" spellings!
A few weeks ago, it had a little "accident". Now, I'm not blaming anyone but myself, but let's just say the "accident" involved the dog, the computer keyboard and a bed.
Two of the keys came off the keyboard and couldn't be replaced. So, in order to type a "d" and a "3" I had to press really hard on the space where the keys used to be . This was getting old...fast! So, we ordered a new keyboard and my "Geek Squad" (aka: husband and older son) replaced the old with the new!
And now I'm happily typing, surfing, updating, and blogging away!
