Mama’s getting a new toy!


I gathered some things that I had been gifted with over the years-some necklaces, bracelets and earrings that I would never wear (not my taste)that belonged to someone else (deceased). These were ‘regifted’ to me over the different holidays, and I would just stick them in storage. I went up to the neighborhood jewelry store on Thursday to sell it. I almost got enough for the full purchase price for this:
It’s a Dell 15.6″* Inspiron* 1545!
With Windows* 7! Rolled over at Wally World to a better price! I wanted something I could take with me to bookstores, coffee shops, on trips and I needed a faster computer for games I play on Facebook. I still own jewelry that I like and I even left off two rings to be resized, one of which is my birthstone, but a blue topaz. Hey, I’m getting older and like everyone else, I need to downsize. It’s great to make a little cash in the process.
Brian doesn’t know about my purchase, but I think he’ll be ok. He was looking at a laptop on here and it was over 1k and I said no way. Can’t wait for my early birthday gift. It has a webcam and case, so if anyone has that, we could use it to chat.
Probably going to my mom’s to help her clean in her room. My brother is moving in at the end of the month.

  1. We’ll be getting a webcam when we move to Maine (as well as new laptops) so Max and his father can stay in contact. 🙂

    Hey, I love your new gift and I think your way of funding it is brilliant. Good job!!

  2. Wow, what a great gift to give yourself . I bet you will get way more use from this than the jewelry.

    I hope you are feeling better,too.
