So for my birthday I used my birthday money to purchase an iPad. No, I didn’t get the new iPad 2. I opted for the old one. It was a hundred dollars off and for the price of the new model, I could get both the iPad AND the keyboard with dock.
Last year, my husband got the iPad using our combined birthday money (our birthdays are four days apart). This year, it was my turn. I am happy with my choice and think it will be quite handy. So I downloaded a few apps after reading some reviews and am trying them out. I am liking iA Writer so far. It works with Dropbox and there’s not much there to divert my attention away from writing which is a good thing! I already had Pages – which I love. I just wish Scrivener would create an iPad app (fingers crossed for that). I also got a stylus for taking notes and doodling. It’s kind of fun. I haven’t used it very much yet though.
I am up at my mom’s for a few days and this will be the real test to see (for me) how the iPad with the keyboard dock works for my writing. I have a lot of ideas spinning circles around in my head for my story and this is a great chance for me to get them down “on paper”. I did forget my lap desk at home. So we’re going to go downtown in a bit to pick up another one.
Other than that, I’m not feeling well. My three-year-old was sick the last few days with a cold but she is getting over it. I woke up this morning with a wonderful sore throat and now I’m stuffed up. I’ve been taking my Emergen-C and doing everything I can to combat it. I’m hoping my husband stays healthy and that my little one doesn’t get sick again.
The snow is almost all gone and now we are hearing that we are supposed to be getting about 8-16 inches of snow tomorrow through Wednesday. Can you say, “UGH”? It is reaching up into the 50’s today temperature-wise, I just wish the sun was shining. It’s a great day to get out and walk and hopefully we’ll get a chance to do that before it gets dark. 🙂
It’s peaceful up here at my mom’s. She has awesome neighbors (wish I could say the same) and I love walking my old route that I used to run/walk when I was younger. There’s a sense of freedom up here that I don’t really “feel” down where we live.
So my week is hopefully going to be a fun, productive one full of writing, picture-taking, helping Mom, visiting the Uncles, playing with my little pumpkin outside and just enjoying time together.
Oh yes, and catching up on my blog-reading! I hope your week is every bit as terrific as you want it to be!
