Technology, Dickies, and Dallas Cowboys

Today, I spent the day in "learning mode."  Me + technology usually = disaster.  I traditionally choose to pass on things like instruction manuals, things written in tiny print, and technology related instruction.  And in sticking with tradition, today me + technology = hours of frustration. I love my husband.  Not just because he is a nice guy that insists on wearing Dickies coveralls around the house like a 75 year old man.  Or because he whispers sweet-nothings about these "three sizes too big" coveralls and lovingly says they are no different than wearing a "man's robe" around the house.

Or because in his post-playoff mourning he refuses to take off his Dallas Cowboy house shoes.



No, I love him because he loves technology.  Since Robb loves fancy little gadgets, I usually get to pass all my little high tech projects right on to him.  And thankfully, he's usually itching for a challenge.  But, today, the challenge was all mine.  Some new publishing tools were making me insane, but my "winging it" finally got the job done.  I should have could have called the   help number or done the training available online, but chose to be hard headed and refused to take the easy path of "instruction."  Hours later...the task was finally completed and the results of my hard work and frustration you can find HERE.  I know.  It looks so nice and clean and simple on the page doesn't it? Trust me when I yell  say that it was not as easy putting that together as one would imagine.  Oh well...live and learn.

Despite it all, tonight I noticed something else that Robb is useful for besides technology projects....


Yes, he folds well too!

haha. Thanks Karen! Yes, I was struggling with my "examiner" picture uploads. Couldn't find any good photos, then trying to figure out how to upload (which is different than blogger as I was expecting). Anyway, figured it out. Husband is a card to say the least. He and his lil Cowboy slippers too!
