Computer confession...

I keep running into the same problem, which ya'll are going to find pathetic. The reason my blog posts sometimes get so far and few between is...because...well...*gulp*...I don't exactly know how to load the pictures from our camera onto our computer. I know! Stop yelling at me!! Eric is ashamed - believe me, it's not for a lack of his desire to show me! Actually, come to think of it, I've probably been shown at least 4 times (on the conservative side)...it's just, well, there are so many cords and places to shove things in the computer, it gets so confusing! You don't understand, I've TRIED! I have this similar problem hooking up the computer to the tv to watch something online (since we don't have cable). I have asked Eric to do it and to show me how to do it so many times, that last time, I finally said to myself, "betsy! this is ridiculous - you need to just figure this out!!" so I did my best to plug the right cords in the right places....well, I hit play on the computer screen, but the tv screen remained blue....hmm...after a few more attempts, I conceded and called for my technology-gifted hunny. It is not an exaggeration to say that he 'busted up' and laughed out loud for a good minute at the contraption I had rigged. Before fixing my efforts, he actually went to get the camera b/c apparently it was worth a picture of. To clarify, it wasn't a mean laugh; more like if you saw a child attempt homemade lasagna (perhaps my analogy is a tiny stretch?) Anyway, it's a problem, b/c I have loads of delicious recipes, adorable pictures of Molly and Anne, as well as my recent ever-so-thrilling daily life to catch you up on! BUT they are locked on the camera. I will butter Eric up with some homemade cookies tonight, then drop the bomb that I need his help uploading... A-G-A-I-N. Guess I am pretty lucky that he is a teacher; patience is one of his gifts! ;)

Hey! I know! If you're anything like me, visuals are key. Have your hubby explain the process with text AND pictures! Step by step he can write out instructions and take a picture of each step, then print them and you'll have your very own manual! :) Problem solved--the pictures can "show" you again and again instead of him!
