Happy Costa Rican Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a national holiday here; of course, this year it's on a Saturday so that didnt' get anyone out of work. But it's been a nice day anyway.

We stopped by to say happy birthday to Jan, then headed over to get the monitor, chair and power strip thing, and are well satisfied with all three.

After getting the Craigslist stuff, we hit the mall and some other shops to get the various cords and accessories we would need. Then we came home to rearrange Bob's place according to the plans he laid out yesterday, to comfortably accommodate the extra computer. It's amazing what you can fit into a little space when stuff is free :)

We thought there was a problem with the router (which was a bonus we didn't know was coming with the computer, but which we were very glad to see), but then Bob figured out that there was software involved, and I figured out how to apply said software, and now all the computers are all wired up and online, yay!

The new one came with a wireless keyboard, but not with the transmitter, so we'll have to either borrow or pick up a regular keyboard until we get that sorted out, but basically we now have two computers in the same room downstairs, which I've really been wanting.

We've also had Mother's Day presents and Just Because presents, and pizza's on the way. Can't beat that!

Mothers Day comes rather late in your backward nation. LOL!

It was a very good day.

Also, I've posted a couple pics over at my place.

Our computers are at separate ends of our very long house, and I like it that way as we can chat online..LOL! YEs, we are weird in Bakersfield. ;p
