When I say “Update Me!” I say it in the persona of “Little Shop of Horrors.” If we add any more devices that need tending to I will need a promotion to SAHD, VP of Technology:) The Triplets got Leapster Explorers from Mimi and Grandaddy. They need batteries and daily updating for them to get some treats and shampoo for their “pets.” Add to that I handle some updating for two laptops for the CEO and a few other things around the house. There has got to be a market for this sort of thing… tech lackey to the wealthy:)
Keep in mind that I am not complaining… it just hit me today. We have a lot of stuff that requires batteries (rechargeable) and periodic updating. Cameras, PS3, computers, Leapsters, etc… The other think I think about is how much time is spent doing all these things so I “waste” more time using them.
Just as example… before something like Christmas. I charge the video camera, the SLR, and the flash. Then I check the SD cards and make sure I have uploaded all the pics/vids. After filming/shooting I download the video/pics. I then edit the photos I want to share and upload them. The video then needs to be edited. All the while I might be missing what I am doing all this to remember… time with the kids. I’m just saying….:)
Handmade presents are scary because they reveal that you have too much free time.
