I heard a knock on my door and was surprised to see it was the UPS man... with my monitor!
"Already?" I asked.
"You know," he responded, smiling "any time people get something from Dell, they ALWAYS say that."
Well yeah, they said three to five business days, but I got notice only this morning that it had been shipped. I just ordered it Saturday!
Getting the monitor connected to my computer wasn't without incident, but after vainly trying to hook it up to the wrong place for about twenty minutes, I finally looked at the instructions. Duh.
Then, when I turned on the computer, my mouse wouldn't work. Oh no!
Turns out while messing around at the back of the tower, I had unplugged the mouse. By the way, don't tell Flylady, but there's a lot of dust back there.
So now, I'm in business. The other monitor is back on the kiddie computer, so the grandchildren will have their fun when they're here. And all I have to do is pay for this new addition... and pray it lasts longer than two years. If it doesn't? I'll buy another. If I still smoked, I'd spend more than $500 in six months and have nothing to show for it except a chronic cough. But I don't smoke. I have this other vice... the INTERNET.
