Giving Birth

I’m likening my transfer to my new HP Envy computer to having a first baby. To begin, there are the last days of pregnancy when the old computer isn’t working well and it’s bloated and needs to rest (or is it reset?) often. Then there’s labor when no matter what you do, those old files and iTunes accounts don’t want to move out (or is it over?). Following is birth – the old computer is empty but still doesn’t run any better while the new computer is slick and screaming (fast?). And once you bring the new computer home (or is it plug it in? with a french plug!!!), you’re in for a laundry list of things you have not done before like feeding (adding necessary programs like Norton and Office), burping (getting beyond the numerous hiccups of transferring files and setting up accounts), changing (deleting all the add-in apps that you have no intention of ever using), and putting to sleep (I can’t even get those settings to work and I’m not a dodo).

The pacifier in all of this is reviewing some old files…to transfer or not to transfer…that is the million gigabyte question. I found a 23 minute travel video I made from photos taken on my 2012 trip to Arizona and California. And just like having a new baby sleeping on my shoulder, I felt blessed and joyful to be watching.

    I wouldn’t know about the whole birthing thing, but I do know we need to get new phones soon. That is probably like getting a new laptop, maybe even more involved since we really do EVERYTHING with our phones!

      Phones are becoming a must have accessory and soon, we won’t carry wallets or purses or even keys. An article I read said voice “writing” will replace keyboarding by 2022! Pros and cons to all of it and I’m certain I will not be able to keep up with the trends, even if I work at it.

    Shared your birth experience last month. Took granny (old iMac) with me when I went to get a new iPhone battery. A deal at $29.
    $1,029 later, walked out with Mac Air and new phone battery. Had similar labor and delivery. Don’t remember being as loudly frustrated with my human babies as I was with my Airhead.
    Hoping postpartum experience will end soon.
