More MAC progress

There hasn't been much time for laundry let alone blogging but I thought I would check in with y'all before heading to JSI for the day. 

Speaking of JSI - the place is abuzz  these days. The spring fling is this weekend and I tell ya the store is sooo busy we are having trouble getting all our fabulous and fun make 'n takes together...but it will all happen! 

Besides being at JSI I am picking up extra shifts at SHR as well since there is
  ahem....(cough, cough)  a new Mac to pay for, not to mention a wedding coming up in less than FOUR weeks. Am I ready? NO!!

David and I visited the almost newlyweds little basement apartment this Sunday and , well it is really cute.. and very small. They are both so thrilled with the gifts that are pouring in for them and their kitchen while teeny weeny, is getting well stocked with dishes, cutlery, pots and pans and a variety of other items. 
The Mac - well I have now converted all my Outlook files, addresses, sub files and sub, sub files over to Mac Mail thanks to a nifty program called O2M

I also have converted all my Word Doc and they are nicely installed on the MAC and workable in NeoOffice. 

My photos are all on the Mac too and Photoshop and Lightroom installed and working. YEAH!!!! 

Internet  - Safari is working beautifully and I was able to figure out (thanks to a very helpful Mac site) how to transfer all my millions of saved favs from Firefox on my PC to Safari on my Mac. 

Mac also has a very nifty feature called Time Machine which continually keeps my Mac copied onto an external hard drive - and it is up and running .

All this to say that I am pretty darn impressed with myself....although it has meant spending a LOT of time in the help menus!!! And figuring out why my HP Photosmart printer files look soooo very different on my MAC - I will accept it though because the printer is working and I was able to print off pictures of the almost newlyweds last night. 

I am still having some issues with my Mac recognizing my Wacom tabet - it did beautifully.... until  I rebooted and then it went back to the Mac mouse and forgot the tablet was there. hmmmmm

All right then - that brings you up to date on this exciting life of mine!! 
Off for the wedding gown fitting (if the bride gets out of bed in the next 15 min) and then to work.  
Hope you are enjoying the beginnings of spring. Time to get those bicycles out of the garage! .....and rake the garden, wash off the deck furniture, hose the grime off the house, check those down spouts and re-shingle the house. Yup - we let that one go for the past two years and it REALLY needs doing on this 30 year old when we have recovered from the wedding we will be re-shingling!!! maybe in 2015? haha.

Have a blessed day everyone. 

A man's pride brings him low, but a man of lowly spirit gains honor. Proverbs 29:23  (NIV)


Kate said... maybe NOT in the next few weeks but when the excitement dies down after the wedding I need to hire you as my blog teacher person. Your blog looks how I want mine to look. HELP! LOL

kate I love you Blog!
Mine is just a template pure and simple with a header I designed in Photoshop and totally forget how I did it....old age short term memory loss.

One day I hope to have a blog like Wilna's though!!
