My Sweet New Ride

If you missed it, my laptop died last week. And if you didn't check my blog a few hours ago, Nathan is the coolest ever. He told me last night that he was expecting a couple packages and to stick close to home today. So other than taking the kids to school and picking them up, I stayed home waiting.

About an hour before I left to pick up Megan, the side doorbell rang. I went to get it and there was a delivery man with a box. I didn't really pay much attention to the box, or its size, or even what was printed on the box.

Then the guy was checking my signature and asking me what my first initial was. I gave him the wrong answer.

This is because that's when I decided to take a look at the box.

Now, Nathan gets computer stuff in the mail all the time. I'd say every month something comes for either Nathan or a friend who has asked Nathan to build him a computer.

But this box was different. This box said there was a computer in the box. A laptop computer. As the delivery guy started walking away I called after him, "Nathan bought a computer?"

He smiled and said, "Yeah, and it's for you, so don't get mad at him!" Then he laughed and kept walking.

How did he know?

Can I tell you how excited I am? No. There are no words. And I'm a writer, so I know that there are no words to tell you just how excited I am.

This is possibly the coolest laptop ever. This is because it was a surprise from Nathan. [Quick breath] And he bought me a green mouse. And green is my favorite color. [Quick breath] And he put Princess Leia as my little icon for when I get on my computer. [Quick breath] And my background is cool and green with black buildings in silhouette. [Quick breath] And it is cool.

Thank you, Nathan! I love you!!

Oh man I am so jealous. My Laptop died about two weeks ago and I have VERY important stuff on the harddrive so I need to go see what is wrong. The problem it costs $150 just to see whats wrong with it!! Not even to fix it!! AH!!!

Yep, I'd say that puts him toward the top of the awesome husband chart. (Or is it the husbands who do the most awesome things chart?)

My husband gave me mine for Christmas a few years back (still don't have a clue how he paid for it) and even though it's having problems now, I'm still very attached to it because it was a gift from him. Sigh. So sweet.

Congrats on your awesome husband and your new machine. That's great news.
