A DVD Story

At Christmas we try to limit the "stuff" on our gift lists. But DVDs are a common item that does get added. We rarely buy them for ourselves, and they are easy to transport, an important concept when you travel by plane. This year Transformers 2 was on the list. And my dear sister got it for us! She mentioned that she was surprised at how expensive it was.
Because it was a Blu-ray...

So Rob got the receipt and we were going to exchange it for a DVD - and use the difference for me to buy a feather headband (pics to come).

But when we went to Best buy. Rob decided that there was a better fix for the mistaken Blu-ray. Can you guess where I am going with this...

Yes, we now own a Blu-ray drive.

Last weekend Rob spent a morning installing the new drive. Along with an updated video card that has really helped our tv run. Oh, and for Christmas Rob got a new projector for cheap, this one plays 3D video (oh the joys) and we donated the old one. We are so updated on electronics for at least 6 months. Bring on the Blu-ray.

Snowy Commute

I've been on a bit of a bloggy break. Enjoy this first post of the new year. I'll be posting what we've been up to in January throughout the next week.

This morning I woke up to a winter wonderland outside. That snow everyone has been complaining about finally hit us. A nice bit of white fluff. I like the snow. I like it ever so much more than rain. It's not as wet, and it's pretty. This morning my snowy commute took me to my first day of classes this semester.

Two sessions of stats! yikes! It was all review stuff. It was a great way to start out the semester, feeling smart and all. Good boost of self-esteem to get me started right.
