    So, in anticipation of "iPad Saturday" what crazy things are you doing to get prepared for the delivery? Here's a few of the things I've done to get ready.

    1.) Got a manicure (no kidding, I want my digits to be cut and clean for the new toy.)

    2.) Got my front door sign ready for UPS to make sure they know I'm home! Don't want any excuses.

    3.) Got my big, green, micro-fiber terry-cloth towel for wiping away the fingerprints I'm sure to put on the iPad.

    4.) Groceries have been bought, no need to leave the house.

    5.) Cleared off a space on the end table for the dock and opened up a slot on the power strip for it.

    6.) Box cutter is at the ready.....


    Anything else?

    I'm sick, so I'm not doing anything right now. I did buy the Pages app and a couple others for my ipad.

    Computer house cleaning

    Today:

    1) Cleaned up the house network, by adding a password, and adding an airport express for printing (so I can print from the iPad if I can find an App for that).
    2) Updated operating system on one of my iMacs - I figured now was a good time to wipe it all clean and start fresh. Will update the other family iMac tomorrow so we are all starting fresh.
    3) Loaded iTunes with credit
    4) Got chair ready to wait in line at the Apple store
    5) Signed up for an iPad workshop at the Apple store for the kids, so they can learn iPad usage. :)

    My pre-sign sheet will be hanging on the door, even though I will be home. I will not take a chance that a "call to nature" or some last minute urgent matter keeps me from answering the door.

    I called my father who just retired from UPS (after 35 years) and he even told me he can't get me my iPad today even though we don't have Saturday delivery. So I have to wait until Monday to get it... very disappointed :(
