. . . switcheroo . . .

. . . the contracts had expired 
for most of the users 
on our family cell phone plan, 
so we decided it was a good time 
to switch providers . . . 
{fingers crossed for better service, please!}
. . . it didn't hurt that 
four of us had birthdays 
about that time, either . . .
. . . after nearly a month, 
we finally received 
our fancy new phones . . . 
. . . one word: backordered . . . 

. . . then i thought, 
"how hard can this possibly be? 
i'll just log into iTunes, 
back up my old phone, 
then plug in the new one 
and transfer all my info. 
i'm a big girl. 
i can do this" . . . 
. . . yeah, right. guess again . . . 

. . . my version of iTunes 
needed to be updated . . . 
. . . i tried . . . 
. . . i really tried . . . 
. . . but the operating system 
on my computer was too old 
to support the new iTunes . . . 
. . . so then i tried 
to update the computer . . . 

. . . and then i gave up . . . 

. . . brent to the rescue . . .
. . . it's great having 
an IT person in the family . . . 
. . . he spent a long time 
on the phone 
with a tech support guy . . . 
. . . we learned that 
the update i need 
is no longer available 
as an online download . . . 
. . . i need to purchase a disk . . . 
. . . a disk they could have to me 
in a couple of weeks . . . 

. . . what the ____? . . . 
. . . but for an addtional $8.00, 
i could get it faster . . .
. . . JUST SEND THE DA*N CD . . . 

. . . the good news is, 
even though i'm still waiting 
for the CD, 
this cute package 
arrived in the mail . . . 
. . . complete with washi tape . . . 

. . . and even better 
once i opened it . . . 
. . . megan was again 
a photoshop whiz . . . 
. . . designing exactly 
what i requested . . . 


. . . so even though 
it isn't really working yet, 
at least my fancy new phone 
looks adorable . . . 

. . . go here to see more
vintage printage creations . . .

"*=R, of course." LOL!!! Megan has serious skillz. Maybe someday she can design cuter OtterBoxes. I'm too big of a klutz not to have an OB.
