All I needed was a little RAM

by Meghann on January 8, 2010

Not sure I mentioned it or not, but the new RAM for my MAC finally arrive and instead of trying to install the memory myself, I took it to the Genius bar so the professional could handle it.

It’s AMAZING the difference the extra 2GB of RAM has on the speed of my MAC. Before it would freeze if I had too many applications open at one time, but now I can surf the net, tweet, upload photos, listen to itunes and blog on Ecto without a problem. All I can say is THANK GOD! I’m a multi-tasker by nature and just doing one project at a time killed me. This is much better.

Thanks Mom and Dad for the great Christmas present! It was worth the wait. ๐Ÿ™‚

There are a few changes happening in my office over the next couple of weeks so I was kept plenty busy this morning. I snacked on some cashews and dried kiwi around 10:00.


Lunch was pretty much a make over of last night’s dinner.


The left over hush puppies and fish was added to spinach and topped with salsa.


And the yucca fries were reheated and served with ketchup.


I <3 left overs!


I managed to leave work a little earlier than expected and am now starting on my task list of a million and one things to do before marathon craziness hits!

I will be heading to the expo with my Sis in a couple of hours and have dinner plans with Melissa and Sabrina. Let the madness begin!

I love leftovers — used to hate them but now, can’t imagine life without them. Makes meal planning so much easier, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yay for your new RAM! I just got a new laptop that’s pretty fast, and it does make SUCH a difference! Ahh have fun tonight!

I thought your multitasking comment was funny because OSG Angela just did a post that was kind’ve about learning how NOT to multitask. ๐Ÿ™‚

HUSHPUPPIES! i’ve been craving for at least a month now! looks like a wonderful lunch ๐Ÿ™‚

Good luck with the race! So many people have been talking about it and I’m kind of excited to hear about it… even if it is super chilly…

8 Rachel January 8, 2010 at 3:56 pm

Mmm! Hush puppies. Haven’t had those in awhile. I can never “make over” my leftovers, and I think that’s part of why I don’t like eating them that often.

yucca fries? Yum!

10 Anne P January 8, 2010 at 4:00 pm

Good luck this weekend!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Dried kiwi and cashews sounds like a very tasty snack indeed!

13 Ali January 8, 2010 at 4:09 pm

YAY! Glad you Mac is running better! don’t you love macs, I am a mac girl all the way. I tried to convince my dad and mom to get one when they were purchasing a new computer. Have fun at the Expo!

14 Abby Flabs January 8, 2010 at 4:16 pm

Yuca fries. Hmmm… My family used to make yuca at holidays and I hated it but it was always mushy and weird. Fries may be the perfect solution!

15 Heather @ (The Single Dish) January 8, 2010 at 4:58 pm

I have a MAC just got it for Christmas and love it. How much memory did you have before?

16 Rosey Rebecca January 8, 2010 at 4:59 pm

I LOVE Hush Puppies! Glad you got the RAM for your laptop!

Just wanted to let you know that I’m giving away 5 bags of Dove PB Milk Chocolate on my blog!! Here’s the link:

My MAC could use some new RAM as well – doesn’t it feel like a whole new computer??

I’m not big on leftovers, trying to change that though. I like how you gave them a bit of a makeover so it wasn’t exactly the same thing!

18 Chloe January 8, 2010 at 5:25 pm

Ooooh, dried kiwi sounds delicious. Where did you get it?

19 Meghann January 8, 2010 at 11:56 pm

They were from

20 legalstyle January 8, 2010 at 5:55 pm

if you don’t mind me asking, how much was the extra ram???

21 Meghann January 8, 2010 at 11:57 pm

I believe for 4GB it was $200

22 foodfitnessandfreya January 8, 2010 at 5:57 pm

I really need to learn what yuccas are…they look tasty!

23 angnxd January 8, 2010 at 6:04 pm

left overs are the best! That dried kiwi looks GOOD!

24 Jenna January 8, 2010 at 6:13 pm

Yummy lunch! Let the marathon weekend begin ๐Ÿ™‚

25 Amber@ The Minimalist Diaries January 8, 2010 at 6:16 pm

Good luck with all your marathon prep! and I soo know how great extra RAM is. Last year my boyfriend’s work bought him 4GB of RAM and I got his extra 2GB that was in his computer. So awesome, and FREE! ๐Ÿ™‚

26 inmytummy January 8, 2010 at 6:26 pm

Dried kiwi? Sounds good. Where did you get it?

27 Heather January 8, 2010 at 6:29 pm

Man sounds like I need some more RAM.
Have FUN this weekend!

I heart leftovers! My current laptop has such little memory, that I made sure to order more for my new one that should be arriving soon!
