Where's my 12 year old when I need him? LOL
It seems everything in my life having to do with technology hasn't been working properly lately. And yesterday was the straw that broke the camels back. Was there a solar flare or something? Did I get in some time warp thing and experience Y2K?
First of all, my laptop wasn't connecting to the internet and I have no idea how to fix something like that. So I (or should I say "we" because the kids like to play their online games on it) had to wait for Dave to get around to dealing with it. Just like everything else around here.
Secondly, my PC has been acting up on me lately, crashing right in the middle of something important (very frustrating and causing me to avoid it!!!). Another thing waiting for Dave to deal with.
Thirdly, while walking with Paris on Monday, I noticed my IPod was stuck on the same song, playing it over and over and over again instead of shuffling through the playlist and playing a different song each time. Another thing for Dave, although he's not very versed in Ipods tech support.
Fourthly, my phone (or shall I say Dave's old one) has been freaking out for awhile now. My contact list wasn't working, there was a box that kept popping up on my screen constantly that said that if I didn't back up the info, I would lose it all immediately. ???? Another thing to wait for Dave. He did quickly look at it and couldn't help me. :(
Fifthly, our satelite TV was blipping in and out the other night. They did put up a screen that told me that though, so at least I know that I wasn't imagining things, and that it wasn't due to my lack of technical skills or knowledge.
And lastly, after dropping off the kids at school yesterday, I stopped at the bookstore for a total of 15 minutes. When I came out to my car, it was completely and totally dead to the world. I tried calling Dave to come rescue me, and he was on an hour long conference call. I finally got ahold of him and he came and jumped my car and followed me to Les Schwabb.
Les Schwabb replaced my battery and fixed a loose electrical wire and sent me on my way, $79 poorer. (could have been a lot worse though!). I then stopped in the Apple Store since I was next to the mall and talked to someone about my Ipod. He took a look at it and showed me how to take it off "repeat" and put it back on shuffle free of charge. LOL (what a simple solution, duh!). I then stopped at the Sprint Store across the street and they helped me with my phone. I guess the record button kept getting pushed accidently while in my purse or whatever and it had used up all of it's memory recording ramblings and background noise. He showed me a few other things too and sent me on my way free of charge. While I was out and about, Dave fixed my laptop and attempted (hopefully successfully???) to fix my PC. So I think we're good to go again around here. Sometimes I feel like a complete dork. Can I blame any of that on Chemo brain at least???? Menopause????
I've always said I had no left brain. I guess I just proved it.
Hope you're having a great week!
