My brother called me a few weeks ago to say that our shared laptop had died. This wasn’t a complete surprise as it had been acting dodgy for a while but still, I was really hoping it would have gone the distance. Bless his heart, my brother is not nearly the technophile I am, so sending him my well-worn but dependable Acer netbook was a good quick fix. Now the problem of getting me a new one, and then my stress began. We’re not exactly made of money, so the Mac book Pro for just over a thousand bucks was quite beyond the budget. Remember, anti-virus, online back-up and physical protection would have to be purchased for the new machine. So I turned to the store from whence my netbook came: Sam’s Club and they did not disappoint. I chose the Toshiba Satellite L655. It could do everything I wanted and included something I didn’t really need: a Blu Ray player/DVD SuperMulti drive with Labelflash®. The problem for me was accepting it.
I had great anxiety about this new laptop. All sorts of worries plagued me and my complexion showed it. Besides the fact that I’m due for a spa trip, almost my entire face was covered in red blotchiness. My family had to talk me down from settling a cheaper albeit less endowed model. There was no reason under the sun for me to be bugging out but I was. Even the morning that it arrived, I was recovering from a horribly upset stomach. However, as with all things, that too has passed. The face is recovering. My stomach is on the mend and hopefully I’ll be partaking of tomatoes choka with the family unit. The lesson I learned from all this is that God’s plan is far beyond our vision. It was time for us to start upgrading our tech anyway. Our enemy, the devil doesn’t want us to enjoy God’s bounty and only reminds us of the negative impact to positive things in our lives. So I shook that cretin off and christened the Toshiba. It’s beautiful and runs like a beast. What more could a modern girl want?
