PMS? What PMS?

I have fought with my husband more in the past 3 days than I have in the past three years. Things that normally I would say, “What you talkin’ about Willis?” have come out something more along the lines of a scene from the Exorcist with spinning head and all.

I seriously have been the devil incarnate for the past 72 hours and have had to do a whole lot of apologizing and make-up sexing.

But a little package on my doorstep brightened my mood immensely today. You see, E-bay and Craigslist have been very good to me over the past few weeks and I earned enough money selling unused stuff laying around my house that I managed to dig up enough cash to purchase my first laptop.

And now you too, can relive the moment…in pictures.

LOL... I am VERY happy for you!! :-) I am sure the laptop will brighten your mood. I know a new one would brighten mine. :-)

BTW... how was the reunion?

Please tell me you jumped in the shower and freshened up before you opened that box for the photo shoot! Not to be catty or anything but it's depressing that you're just that gorgeous in the middle of the afternoon when the UPS truck comes. Unless it's your habit to get dolled up for the UPS man??? Did hubby get a new job? ;)
Oh and you should contact Dell's marketing dept. You might be able to sell them the rights to advertise how effective a cure for PMS their laptops are. Imagine the lines of husbands buying laptops for their wives...yep, good marketing. Cash in on it while you can!

As far as the PMS goes I have had a few days like that myself lately.

Those Dell Inspirons are great. Amber would kill for one of the red ones. (What is it with women and the color red, anyway?)

Congrats! You deserve it!

Hooray, hooray, hooray!! Are you sure the PMS wasn't just "WantNewComputerSyndrome" ? If I knew that thing was on the way to me, I'd have a hard time waiting!!!!

LOL, the one picture looks like you're doing a laying of the hands prayer over it.

Now if I can convince DH that we "need" a laptop...

Nothing like a little technology to make a girl feel better! And chocolate. Always chocolate.
