These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

I'm SO aggravated!
I got a new cell phone today. I was very excited. After about 45 minutes of discussing the features, the pros and cons of various phones, I finally settled on a Droid Incredible. They transferred all my contacts for me, and I headed back to the office. I finished out my work day, made a stop for a few groceries and headed home.
At home, I set about learning how to use it and set up features. I set up Facebook, Blogger, Skype and my email accounts, along with a few other things while it was finishing the charge. Then I plugged it into my laptop to transfer my address book and calendar into the phone, and I got a message on the computer saying it did not recognize the device, and on the phone was a message saying I needed to install software (which, of course, I don't have) AND that it is available .... ONLY FOR WINDOWS!!!!!!!!!
I freakin' have a Mac!! And I asked the guy not once but TWICE if this phone was compatible with Mac!!!
Dammit dammit, dammit!!! Of course, by this time, the store is closed, so I have to drive back into Rui tomorrow, and I really, really, REALLY don't have time for this!!! I have so much to do before I leave very early Tuesday morning, and I really hate that I have to take this time out to get it corrected!! What is wrong with people that they give wrong information like this???
I'll be off to town in the morning, laptop in tow, to have them fix their mistake. Maybe .... benefit of the doubt .... there is a software that can be downloaded. There had better be.
