I am on my HP Chromebook…but before any applause…believe me this first day out has been an exercise in “Trial by fire.”
I discovered that this expression alludes to the medieval practice of determining a person’s guilt by having them undergo an ordeal, such as walking barefoot through a fire. (Believe me…that sounds preferable to all the road blocks I ran into yesterday while pecking out this post!)
And to add insult to injury…my sleeve hit something on the “keyboard” and these smiley faces sticking their tongues out at me popped up on the screen! Really enough is enough!
I couldn’t figure out how to delete these discourteous emoji’s so they followed me as I proceeded with the post…until Susan stopped by and hit something that did it….she didn’t know what did it but they were gone!
In a situation like yesterday…the only thing to do is laugh…loudly and hysterically!
The name of the blog post today…”Let’s Do This” comes from the notebook I bought yesterday to keep all the new passwords in and instructions to no avail. Anne has been a trooper…and someone to laugh and scream with through these murky waters.
I had planned to share many of your sweet encouraging messages today but I think I had better cut my losses and stop.
So until tomorrow, Anne returned to help me get the blog ready to publish and she brought me a message from the universe (in the form of my license plate) “While I breathe, I hope.”
