Claire provides tech support for Sunnyside Farm. She visits on breaks from school, sets up things so we have automatic recovery of data on our desktop, can watch movies at a reduced price on our tv, and makes certain everything is backed up, cleaned up and straightened out until her next visit.
I needed to scan something the other day. A document required for some (in my mind) ridiculous reason. We don't keep a fax phone line because it is an unnecessary thing anymore: just scan, name the file, attach and send.
Except. Remembering how to scan. Have not done it in a year, and it seems Claire was here and took care of it.
We text. I want her to remember, to just walk me through it. I push buttons on the machine and get a "fail" message. Aw hell. Isn't this supposed to simply my life?!
When all else fails read the manual. And it is a simple, 2 step process once I locate the needed instructions. Sometimes, when it looks hard, I just want someone else to do it for me. And then, when I do it myself...joy. I got this. Swagger.
I still miss my girl. Glad she has a life and is doing work she loves. Awesome to see her in the world. Because there are somethings the instruction manual just does not do.
