Mac Daddy

I have officially crossed over to the dark side.


After years of being stubborn and refusing to drink the kool-aide, I finally converted from a PC to a Mac (a MacBook Air to be exact) and I will never look back.  I am already loving how pretty and simple everything is.  Also user friendly and super fast compared to my dinosaur of a computer I had before.  

However, I will still use a PC at work, so I won't lose my mad windows skills completely.

The one downside is the blogging software I previously used isn't available on a Mac, so I have had a few growing / learning pains.  I downloaded a trial version of MarsEdit (Mac's version of Windows Live Writer) and so far so good.  I will let you know the final verdict after 30 days.  

Now if I could just figure out what is wrong with my camera and get the shattered screen on my phone fixed, I would be sitting pretty technology-wise.  This will last a day before something else goes wrong.  

Anyone else have a Mac?  Any apps I should get for sure, or any tools that I should take advantage of?  


I had dessert for breakfast and it was relish - steel cut oats with almond butter, chocolate chips, and coconut.

Lunch was yet more left overs from the party on Saturday.  We literally haven't even put a dent in the pan.  However, I don't know if I will ever get tired of the rice + beans + taco meat combo.

Repeat for dinner.  I wonder what it will be like to cook again.


 Thought for the day



  1. I have an iPhone and iPad. We're going to buy our MacBook Pro this weekend. We still have a PC desktop and I use a PC at work, so it'll be the best of both worlds. =)

    I'm just looking forward to having laptop that works and doesn't take 2994943833040 hours to boot up and play a video, so then we can get rid of cable and save $$$!

    Hope you're feeling well today!

  2. I got my MacBook Pro in Feb, and I have not looked back since. I am still learning the different things it will do, but I have found it is more user friendly and a gazillion times faster.

  3. Rachael, this is Cindy's mom, I saw your comment about a Mac and just wanted to say, my husband loves Mac's yet he has to teach on a PC, he went to a PC for years, now we are back to Mac's. He still has to grade and do things on a PC, so he's found a program called Parallel's Desktop, it's a program that will open on your Mac and make it run and act like a PC. The only downside that I remember him mentioning is that he got a virus on the Parallel side, it didn't do anything to his Mac which told us something about the reliability of the Mac! LOL!
    If you have any questions about using window's on the Mac talk to Cindy, Gary would be happy to talk to you about how to navigate the situation, he teaches the Office Package and I've heard him recommend to a student that they buy a Mac and he would help them if they ever needed it. Just call.
