In Need/Want of Laptop

I’ve been saving money as I can so that I can buy our homeschool a laptop. I’ll have to be honest, it is taking more time than I thought it would. Between having to buy extra curriculum and supplies for projects, I’m not even close to what I need.

I think we’re going to use some of our income tax return to finally make the purchase, but I was wondering if maybe a computer rental would be something to look into until then. I really need to sit down and figure out the pros and cons of doing that. If I plan well, I would only have to rent it for a short amount of time…I would want it to be when we start back at co-op because that’s when I could really use a laptop!

Sigh….Dad, if you wanted to just gift me with a laptop that would ease a lot of my stress! Lol!

You are right. Northanger Abbey! Laura Thomas is taping them for me since I don't have very good reception. So you like the Persuasion version?

Work for that lap top girl! Woo hoo! Can't wait for you to get it so we can go hang out at Atlanta Bread Co., Panera Bread, Starbucks, and B&N!

I rented a computer (years ago!) when they first started becoming a household fixture.. I did it because I figured I'd learn the ins and outs of everything and if I broke it.. I could give it back, lol. I did it for a few months..

As for dad buying a laptop.. my dear daddy bought me one a few summers ago.. and the dang thing wasn't work a .. well.. it was a defective model of Toshibas and they never did make good on it (I've whined and moaned about it on my own site).. I finally had to buy my own.

Good luck getting one! Hope you don't have to wait too long. :)
