As much as I complain and am legitimately irritated when things don’t work the way they’re supposed to or I’ve been told they will out of the box, I don’t mind the troubleshooting process as long as I’m not on a deadline and I’m not being denied one of the primary purposes of whatever the new item is. I know that the changeover from a much older machine to a new one is not going to be seamless, particularly with iTunes, what with multiple Apple IDs and many devices that have been authorized and have made purchases.
That being said, I still want to cuss and yell and pout and stamp my feet when multiple attempts don’t work and a series of salespeople and support people have condescended to me all night long, and then Joshua’s meltdown over the revocation of his iPhone privileges in accordance with our agreement about homework – let’s just say bedtime can’t come soon enough. It hasn’t been quite a Jonah day, because I am still so grateful for the blessings in my life. I just wish it could’ve ended on rather a higher note. Perhaps a hot shower and the rest of A Knight’s Tale (which I am watching on Netflix, on my computer, because it has Intel inside!) will do the trick.
Goodnight, loves; may angels guard your dreams and guide you on magical adventures along glittering skyward trails.
