I'm so tired. I could not sleep last night. It was after 5am when I finally got to sleep and I woke up before 10 am. I have been yawning and useless all day! lol. I haven't written for NaNo yet but I will write at least a few lines. I have my word count and I'm almost done with the story, but there is more to go. I'm just too tired to write much. If I write tonight it's no telling what may come out! :p
My 'new' MacBook Pro is all set up now. I moved everything over and I got my music on here today. I also went ahead and made backups of my iPods and my iPad Mini. I opened all my Scrivener works and made sure to save them to the backup folder. I don't want to lose those again! I don't remember if I mentioned it last night, but while I was waiting for Catalina to install on the MBP, I put my yule tree up. I got it up and put the lights on but left the ornaments for today. I put those on today and they looked nice. Sadly though, I am missing a small box of ornaments. It's a little box with four glass ornaments that I got from Family Dollar several years back. They were only a dollar, but I love those four ornaments. I can't find them! I am not sure where they are, I looked tonight but didn't find them. I'm not giving up though. I know there are here somewhere! I'll try to remember to show a picture of the tree tomorrow. I DID remember to take a picture of the laptop in the daylight. Here you go:
This is my desk where I sit to write. It's a nice spot to work on my writing or whatever I'm doing. It's nice being able to see better with this bigger laptop too. When it arrived, the seller had put a hard case on it similar to the one I have on the 13" one. I popped it off out of curiosity to see what condition the actual laptop was in. My 13" was scratched and banged up pretty badly when I got it. This guy is FLAWLESS. The only minute scratches I see are on the bottom. The top is mint. It looks like it just came from Apple and it's 8 years old! I'm glad whoever had it before me took good care of it. My nice laptop bag is too small to fit it. BUT! Some time back, I saw one of those laptop sleeves at Goodwill. It was brand new and it was pretty big. I bought it knowing it was too big for my 13" MBP but I figured I could use it for something. It fits my 15" MBP perfectly! My messenger bag that I used to carry to Starbucks to write pen pal letters is big enough to hold it, too! I will probably get a laptop bag in the future, but this will work well for now. The sleeve is well padded and the messenger bag is sturdy and it will still have room for other stuff and the laptop.
