Yep, by saying that something is a learning experience it puts a positive spin on it
and I'm all about being positive.
I''m also all about being truthful so
truthfully, this has been a BIG pain in the ass.
One of the things that I wrote about in my last post was my troubles with
my photos for Vida, not being in a high enough resolution and
my struggles with trying to find how out how to correct that situation.
Jean did her best in trying to help me.
She even tried contacting Vida to see what she could do since she's a bit of a computer whiz
and has Photoshop and actually enjoys problem solving!
Sharon also offered some great ideas on how to find a way to get the resolutions increased.
I came home Thursday night and was so frustrated by it all.
I truly don't think my mind works like some peoples do.
If you give me a manual with instructions, I'm lost but if you just show me, I usually get it.
Everything I do that's computer related has been learned by trial and error and Google.
I had received my $15.00 Mac compatible keyboard from Amazon and
I hooked it up and spent all of Thursday evening trying to search the Internet to tell me how to increase the photos to a higher resolution.
I'm not even sure what all I did but I did it!
(I saved the link for future reference though because I've already forgotten it!)
So I uploaded the photos again and then on Friday I had a notice on my Vida account that they needed them to be .tif or .tiff instead of .jpg or .jpeg.
I swear I was about to explode.
I Googled some more and found some interesting things.
But couldn't figure out the TIF stuff.
Then today on Saturday I did something I NEVER EVER do.
I was woken up at 5:40 by my dogs who had to potty.
On work days I usually get up at 5, so other days are usually close to that time too.
So I let everyone out and brought them back in AND I went back to BED!!!!
I gathered them all and scooped them onto the bed.
Usually some sleep in the laundry room or the spare room and
Nora likes to lay under the bed and Blue likes the upholstered bench that is up against the double windows.
But today we all laid back down for what I guessed would be an hour or so
and woke up FIVE HOURS LATER!
Maybe the sleep refreshed me but I got up and started doing laundry and cleaning house.
I'm still suffering from this shingles thing so I tied up my T-shirt and rubbed shingles cream on my belly and sat down on the computer again and FINALLY figured out this .tif problem.
A learning experience for sure.
And now I'm on Vida, which you can find HERE
OK that's done!
Now I'm on to other things.
Technically my vacation starts on Monday but I don't have to work this weekend so I consider it vacation already.
I must admit that I failed at getting everything GONE so I'll sort through some more things tomorrow but come Monday, it's ALL Art.
Unless I feel the same or worse.
Then maybe I'll call up my old doctor and see if I can get in.
Hopefully I won't have to do that.
In my Googling, I've found that Shingles can be stress-related and since I'm on vacation
hopefully the lack of stress will help.
Well, enough of that boring talk...
