Today has been by far one of the worst technology days ever. It all started last night with my decision to restore Kayla’s windows computer to factory settings. I bought her a refurbished mac before I went to camp. Well the old Windows computer got stuck at 12% restore. So this morning I spent two hours on the phone with tech support to find out the hard drive had crashed and burned. I spent 800 on it and another 300 to replace the screen. Well they wanted 250 to replace the hard drive. By this time I had zero filter left and I said “No way. I will throw this piece of shit in the trash and buy a Mac.” This makes the fourth Windows computer hard drive that I have had crash. I am finished with anything with windows. I have no intention of buying Allyson a mac until she is a senior in high school. It would have been nice for her to have the windows for her games but such is life. So we will continue to fight over mine.
I had finally finished that disaster up and was headed out the door to walk the dog when Emily calls. Her Mac was asking for some keychain password and wouldn’t run. I said look text Bob across the street, I cannot deal with this. She finally figured out the password but just now said its acting up. I said make an appointment with the apple store. Your computer is under warranty and again I can’t deal with this. Factor in Allyson and I driving all over looking at cakes and then trying to remember which cake is which and I’m thinking I could smoke an entire carton of cigarettes straight. The worst part was I couldn’t figure out where this one cake was located. Allyson takes one look at it and says its the back of the cake in the previous picture. I should have just offed myself right then. However I think tomorrow we will find a few more.
Oh and in the middle of this I call my mom thinking I could easily set up a second blog for her and that turns into total frustration on both ends so we decided we will work on that tomorrow. She finished the family story (www.whenthechurchbellsrang.wordpress.com) and now all her friends want her to keep writing. She’s going to start another called class of 66 but change the names to protect the guilty (like herself-after all she’s the one that got expelled from history class and had to repeat). I will let her tell those stories.
Oh and how can I forget about the camp CD. Someone restored the download code. I put it in and again nothing would download to my computer. So I still don’t have the camp music! Tomorrow will be a better day!
