Yes, I know, it’s still a little 3 months until Christmas, but my birthday is also 3 months away, and since I’ve worked it out with my parents to have a combo gift this year, I’m trying to decide what/which to get. I’ve already decided that I want a new camera, but now to decide which to ask for 😉

The internet and digital cable are down, as off this moment. Cox is down-down. No ideas on when it’s going to be back up. It freaking pisses me off sometimes. There was extreme tiling for two days! TWO DAYS! And now they’re fixing it? With no warning (checked what e-mailed – went out around 8am, it’s now 11am). I hope it’s up sometime, because I’ve got things I need to do. I’m tired of dealing with the internet at this point in time.
Well, at least it’s giving me some time to get things done that I need to get done. I need to do tags for members. I didn’t do any Sunday, because Josh was off. I didn’t do any yesterday, because I had a bitchin’ migraine courtesy of sleeping bad. Today? Today’s I gotta do, today’s I will get done, XD. I also have to choose tags to go up in the area, available for sale, 🙂
To Do List For Today:
Is it Thursday yet? Josh is off on Thursday, and we’re spending the day, at least part of it, checking out vehicles. We’ve found at least THREE vehicles in our price range. *sweet* I’m so excited about it. I wish we didn’t have to go through the hassle of buying a new vehicle right now, but man, I’m so excited to get something bigger than the POS we’re currently stuck with. That means I’ll get the nice vehicle to drive back and forth places. Madi won’t have to be embarrased when she gets to kindergarten by her mommy’s POS. Now, she’ll be riding in a nice vehicle.
Speaking of purchases, we’re now looking at PC’s, and maybe something a bit better than the one we saw previously at Best Buy. I honestly have no clue what we’re going to purchase, :lol:. Josh wants a quad-core. I want a quad-core, but we found a dual-core with up to 8gigs of memory. That would kick some majorly serious ass!! I want a PC that kicks ass, :lol:.
Is this pc really as good as it’s advertised? The price is abso-freaking-lutely amazing, and something that Josh and I both are going ga-ga for. Our current graphics card will totally work for it (it’s not even listed on the EA site for the Sims 2, because it’s higher than the others listed, XD – x1300t).

Built-in 10/100Base-T Ethernet LAN with RJ-45 connector; 56 Kbps modem (to find a PC W/O a modem would be amazing, but impossible, I’m thinking
HP multimedia keyboard and HP optical mouse (don’t really need it, but extras are nice, XD)
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition operating system preinstalled; software package included with HP Photosmart Essential, Roxio Creator, muvee autoProducer and more (and we’ll be adding PowerDVD to that, XD, since we’ll be installing the other DVD burner we have ;))
Josh and I have found the PC we’re looking for: HP – Media Center 6000+ TV Desktop
We’re hoping we can put away $200 each paycheck, and get it within 3 months. We’ll see how that works out. We really want this computer. The graphics card is crap, but we’ve got a great one in this PC right now, and the model itself is only a year old (model was released Sept. 01, 2006). Hell no, we’re not getting rid of it.
It’s got everything we want:
