I pushed it too far.
The plan was to spread my dumb questions between my four kids so not one of them would know how dumb I really am at working my new phone.
But Mario was the closest. And she came when I texted her. And now she knows…..
On my own, I had figured out how to sync my iTunes library to my phone. I was feeling pretty good about myself and couldn’t wait to start listening to the music via my phone and not my iPod.
But I could NOT for the life of me, find my playlists on my phone. So I synced it again. And looked. And synced one more time. And looked. It was NOT there!
Frustrated that I needed help, I texted Mario. Yes, she was in the next room, but the house was quiet, and I didn’t want to yell, and I was settled on the couch under mounds of blankets and wasn’t getting up.
She obligingly huffed out of her bedroom.
“I figured out how to sync my phone to iTunes,” I began proudly. “But now I can’t find it on my phone.”
She grabbed my phone and with quick fingers began clicking buttons and navigating around.
“Where ARE you?” She asked when she couldn’t find it either.
She quickly realized that I wasn’t looking in the right spot. I was still in iTunes when I should have been in Music.
“Your playlists are in the music app. That’s where your music is,” she said with all the sarcasm of a 14 year old.
I shrunk a little deeper under my blankets, and uttered a meek, “oh. ok. Thanks, Honey.”
Now I can’t ask her any more questions. And I’m worried that with the boys’ busy schedules that they may not be around when I need them.
I suppose I can always look my questions up online. There’s a site I found, designed with me in mind.
I’ll use that from now on. I’ll still feel dumb. but at least I won’t have the rolling eyes and sarcasm and sighs of exasperation from them when I can’t figure out something so easy-peasy.
And maybe someday, I’ll be able to show Mario how to do something
