The good news is that we found a desktop Mac G5 for a deal. So now I have this lovely desktop.
I'm hopeful that a desktop computer here makes me less inclined to pile stuff on the desk and more intentional with my computer use.
I'll miss my laptop, but on the whole I think this is a good move for our family. And as soon as the stuff from my old hard drive is on the new hard drive, I will be up and computing again. I'm thankful for my phone and its talents... But I am really looking forward to getting my fingers on an actual keyboard!
