This can be frustrating

I love this new laptop, in general.  But, like with anything, there is a learning curve and, right now, it's driving me crazy in some ways.  I'll get used to it, but it's taking me about twice as long to do anything as it would with my desk top.

One of the funniest things, though, is the reaction of the cats.  They are used to seeing me sitting at my desk in the dining room, tapping away at the keys.  With this laptop, I'm in the living room, plunked on the sofa.  And, all four of them are sitting around me, staring as if they are wondering what the heck I am doing spending so much time sitting there with a funny looking box on my lap.

Let's see what old picture I can find today.

Here's not one, but a whole sequence of Rachael and Leon playing "I'm under the rug and you can't catch me"  turned out to be not so true, as you can see.

Oh, those cats! Aren't they a hoot?

I'm hoping to get a laptop this fall, my old computer is very old and sick as well. I don't look forward to the learning curve though! Love the kitty pictures. If Leon is like my big orange kitties he probably screamed like a girl when his sister grabbed him! :-)

Louise, when I move, I'm planning on using solely my laptop. Am I going to regret giving my desktop to my daughter?...:)JP

I recently switched from my PC desktop with MS Windows to a MacBook Pro laptop. The laptop part was OK, since I've used them for the past 15 years, almost, but the MS to Apple change was tough! Sometimes it still takes me a long time to figure things out.
It'll get better! And isn't it nice to be able to take it anywhere?!

Our cats like to hide dead mousies under the rugs. Unpleasant.

Your pictures remind me of why I love cats so much!!!

I hope you're enjoying your day!!

The pictures of the cats are so funny! First time I smiled all day!

When you have the whole laptop Win 7 figured out, I will have somebody to ask my questions to!

Adorable pictures. It's amazing how awkward it is to use a different computer until you get used to it. I switch between our Mac and a pc laptop....drives me crazy at times!

The are probably wondering why you are sitting there petting the very flat cat in your lap.

Louise -- Seems like you are already used to your laptop.

Your cats are cute playing hide and seek.

How cute is that!

Those are incredibly cute photos!

Isn't it funny how our pets get so intrigued by changes in our routines? Or, they get alarmed, like when I took to bed for a whole day last week. In any case, they keep us amused!

Sandra said...

Oh my, the pics are hilarious! Cats can be so patient at times, waiting for their "prey" to relax a bit too much. Leon, we can see you, too!

Samantha said...

Funny, funny kits!

It took me forever..regardless of all those computer classes..to get used to my laptop!
I'm a desktop girl, through and through.
