My new laptop needs a name, I'm thinking "Bankruptica?"

I finally caved in today and bought a laptop. Crazy, I know. I need it for the work from home job I start on Monday. (more on that deal later) It's a Compaq Presario, used, with XP on it. I really didn't want to buy Vista yet, so I went to a refurbished computer store and found this one. I did my research and think I got a pretty good deal with it. I'm happy.
(Now if I could just get the stupid wireless card (D-link external) to work my life would be complete.)
I also got a new windsheild today. So pretty much, I spent a lot of money for me all in just one short morning. I'm a little freaked out.
I'm leaving for Indianapolis tomorrow and a second funeral. A close family friend succumbed to brain cancer after nearly 9 months of illness. It hasn't been the easiest week in the McBride family. 2 funerals and a wedding... Ay yi yi.
With a third major road trip (2 to Roanoke previously this week) now looming, plus another massive trip right behind it, I'm doing some massive packing today. I've given up on suitcases and just packing everything in big rubbermaid containers. I'm surprised how much more I can fit in them rather that suitcases.
Bottom line, I'm tired before I even get started right now. I'm not going to say much more about what is going on. I'll just take and post pictures and let them do the talking.
