My husband and I have just been spending some quality time together while I tried to sign in and compose this blog. For whatever reason, the default e-mail that showed was his newly created gmail address. Since he had recently created the account to access some software for his phone, I knew he had done something that affected my ability to sign in to our blogspot. Not to be deterred, I went to my "Groups". The blog was not there. By now, I was really panicked. I bellowed for him to come downstairs to help me fix what he had screwed up.
I guess this would be a good time to say he doesn't blog and he isn't familiar with the "Groups" designation on the Yahoo site, so we were handicapped from the getgo, although he is familiar with every gadget and electronic gizmo that has ever been invented. I am the luddite who resists any technological change. He is my polar opposite but most of the time it works, but not today.
Yesterday I fell for his reasonable explanation as to why he needed to upgrade his perfectly fine phone to some Android something or another. It seems his Palm Pilot is beginning to fail and he needs to access the information on it in order to do the work that pays our bills. Fearing that our financial stability was in peril, I readily agreed he could go out and get this new phone that could perform both functions. In fact, I urged him to do it right away. Little did I know he would change all search engines, browsers and homepages while enabling this latest technological wonder. He swears he didn't do anything that could have changed all these things but the fact remains, they had changed.
After fifteen minutes of increasingly escalating emotions on both of our parts, he now knows more than he'd ever like to know about blogs and our website. I, on the other hand, finally gained access to the blog, with a subject matter to boot. I know how to navigate the new web browser, and both of our blood pressures are slowly returning to normal.
