Simplify My Life


Do I need my life simplified? Well, let me think for a minute. Ok, I don't even need a minute. Just a millisecond, yes! I am a wife and a mommy and I love both of those things! I teach sixth grade science and love it, and I am a doctoral student and most days I (sickly) love that too! Is my plate full? Um, yes. I know this is only for a season of my life and I definitely have days when I feel totally overwhelmed, yes, but I do love my life. God has blessed me so much!


The Mom Bloggers Club (you might have noticed the button on the left column of my blog) is having a contest and giving away an HP Mini 110 with Windows 7. I just need to write how winning one will simplify my life…well, I carry my cumbersome work laptop everywhere with me to try and catch a few minutes to work on things when I have unexpected lull times (like right now when I am sitting in a minor med office waiting to get stitches in my elbow from attempting to kick the cat this morning—but that is another story). It would be extremely helpful to have a more compact laptop to do this with! It also would be helpful to not be THIS laptop as it has had to be rebuilt twice this past year as I wrote about in a previous post. Let's just say it is not HP. J

And if I should win this awesome prize…I promise to share with my hubby. He has a laptop that has had a bad battery forever and he has to carry the battery around everywhere. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of a laptop?!? Such a good man, he never complains. (His laptop is also not HP…enough said)



And the Windows 7 portion of the prize? I have heard nothing but good things about Windows 7 and can't wait to get my hands on it! I love the commercial of the man that says it was his idea to have the two pages, side by side. Seriously, I know we have all thought that would be SOOO helpful! And how many tabs do we all have open RIGHT NOW!

Do you think you might like to win one of these HP Mini 110 with Windows 7 as well? Well, just comment on my post. Three of these great netbooks will be given away to readers who leave a comment on entrants' sweepstakes posts.

My husband and I would finally stop fighting over the computer. This would help my sanity.

I have to do a lot of traveling and I use a friend's extra laptop while I'm on the road. It would be great if I didn't have to use his and didn't have to carry such a big thing through airport security!

Man my life could use some simplifying! I would love to be able to write my blog posts on the go or during lunch breaks. Now if the HP Mini 110 could help me get my daughter to sleep through the night, I would be in LOVE (even more!)

Anne J said...

This would be great! I'd love to be able to work on the go, like while I'm waiting for the kids to finish piano or dance lessons.

I have been wanting one of these so badly! I run a small home business and a HUGE portion of that is things like answering emails, uploading photos, writing product descriptions...
I would take my mini out into the backyard with me, to dance class or the neighborhood tot lot.
Spending more time with my kids while still getting some of my workload done would be HEAVENLY!

Jenn said...

That is a BEAUTIFUL machine. Good luck to everyone!

Chris said...

As your husband, I could reaffirm these statements. I would love to have an HP that allows us to get our schoolwork done, and gives us an opportunity to try out the new Windows 7! I have a laptop that not only runs through batteries but sometimes decides not to do what I want it to do. I have only had it for 5 years. Anyway, it would be wonderful to own a new HP mini to help in school and just normal everyday life for me and my wife.

Nicole said...

I entered also. It would simplify my life by helping me get organized! Wishing you luck... and hoping for some luck myself!

Heather McDougle said...

Phyllis said...

I've never even owned a laptop before. Good luck to us both!

Kimberly @ Raising Olives said...

I so hope that I'm chosen to win one of these.

Something this small would be really convenient for me since I need a computer for work and it is light enough to take on the bus which I use to commute every day. I could check e-mails & bills on my commute. My old laptop was actually stolen recently so I would love a new one! Good luck!

VickieB said...

It would be so convenient to have a Mini 110 for on-the-go computing, and this one is so pretty.

Susan Fobes said...

Good luck to you!

Annie said...

Yes, I think the new minis are awesome!! I would love to have one, but more than likely I would end up giving it to my father. He would benefit from a MINI laptop, because like you, he is a busy man with lots of different hats to wear, and a small laptop would make life so much simpler. :) Good luck Dawn!!!!

Kim Moldofsky said...

I would love my life simplified with a lightweight computer with the latest operating system. Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my keyboard.

Snowflake07 said...

This would make my life so much more convenient! To be able to surf the net from the couch...pure heaven. :-) Good luck!

Wren said...

Yaysh!!! I would like one, please. It would help me in storing my embriodery and applique designs that I am going to make for you, Dawn!!! L's heart onesie will be done first!

Windows 7 does sound interesting. I just recently bought a netbook while I was pregnant with my twins. I love it!!! I'm also a teacher and going back soon so I will be using it often there!
