As some of you may know I was lucky enough to be laid off in June as part of a huge cut to the health care industry (specifically pharmaceuticals) only one month after my wedding, when things in life should be great. I have a really positive attitude toward it, and I am very lucky to have an incredibly supportive Husband, and Family and this will never be a "woe is me" posting forum. There are many others who are in far worse situations and I am blessed and lucky to have all that I do, during such a trying time.
That being said, I spend a majority of my day on the computer researching companies and trying to find jobs to apply for. As of late my 4 year old Dell has really been spastic and pretty much falling apart. It got so bad that a page would freeze loading halfway through then the computer would just spontaneously shut down! I mentioned to my mom last week that Hubs and I might buy a Mac. There is an apple store about a block from our condo so we did our research and yesterday we were going to look into purchasing one. My dad called at 2 or so, he had a meeting in the area and wanted to take us out to dinner (keep in mind he lives a state away) he got here before hubs got home. He asked to look at something online, I said good luck and hoped that it didn't freeze up on him. He attempted to take one look at something, said grab your coat. He marched me down to the apple store and Bought me the brand new Mac desktop! Hubs almost had a heart attack when we walked back in! My dad is so incredibly generous and he has always been like this, but yesterday was crazy! So I am posting from my brand new Mac (I'm totally a convert), and loving it! Thanks dad, it really felt like Christmas yesterday!!
This is the image I want to use for our Christmas card, I keep waffling over the design of the card, but I cant decide whether to use black and white or color?? What do you think?
