Ah, Technology…

My new iPad setup is quickly replacing my laptop as it now behaves like one with its new keyboard.

Some days just don’t start off on the right foot. Sometimes it seems as if one is not even able to stand up, for that matter.

I woke up after going to bed wondering if I was coming down with something. I had done a Flonase routine thinking that something was up sinus-wise and then perhaps heading into one of those nasty, more than one week colds I get. I woke up with the sinus thing still going on but once up, it was better. It seemed as if gravity was on my side.

My routine on Mondays and Wednesdays is slightly different as my Conversation Hour sessions begin at 9:00 AM instead of 10:00 or 11:00. Overall, that is a good thing, but it is a new routine. I got all my things done but didn’t get to the point of getting MK her coffee upstairs. I thought that she might be down before I left, but that wasn’t the case.

I fed and walked Stewart and had set up the ice machine for MK. I went to open up my computer files that I use for my conversation hour sessions and when I went to open up my attendance spreadsheet, it said it didn’t exist. It was not reachable. I use an alias, but somehow, the alias had lost its path to the original. Somehow, the original had disappeared. I went to check my e-mails, since I thought I might have the latest copy there. After a session, I normally send my updated spreadsheet to the Oakton Language Lab. Guess what? Last Wednesday, I didn’t do that!

I located my 2018-2019 Spreadsheet and used it as a template and luckily just had to change a few dates.

Technology was not on my side today.

Lastly, I went to set up my connection between my iPad and my laptop to make it easy to show the conversation group the notes I am typing for them, and the connection wouldn’t happen. I have to get to the bottom of that.

Ah Technology, love it and hate it!
