This morning on the way to school, I had a cute moment in the car with Brigham. I wanted to take a picture of something to illustrate this cute moment so I could come home and post it on the blog for today. Not having my camera, I used my phone, assuming that I could transfer the pic from my phone to my laptop where I would be able to access it for the post.
I have now spent the better part of the day trying to get that picture from my phone onto my laptop. I finally realized that I needed to install some software to my laptop and I would be good to go. Imagine my excitement at the prospect of being able to solve my problem myself! I dug through my boxes in the garage, found my Blackberry box and retrieved the disk. By this time I was really feeling good about my ability to be self-sufficient. I stuck the disk in and began the installation process.
Hours of my life that I will never get back have since gone by. The software is installed, but it doesn't work. (I know it's not the software as much as it is the installer.) I have spent the bulk of my day trying to solve this problem and 7 1/2 hours after the picture was taken, it remains on my phone where it began. So no cute moment post for the blog today and I am incredibly frustrated. I GIVE UP! Forget the Blackberry, just give me a tin can with a string hanging out.
