THE TROUBLE WITH DOING SOMETHING RIGHT THE FIRST TIME IS THAT NOBODY APPRECIATES HOW DIFFICULT IT WAS.
I have had such a difficult time the last few days. I've been trying to cut and paste something into an e-mail. No problem, you say? Uh . . . you smarties that can do this really hard task can just go and stand in the corner while I explain my problem to other "computer usage victims".
Anyhoo, I attempted to paste a document into a letter. Well, I must have gotten the cut and paste process half-way done. I ended up with a loooonngg sheet of letter, document, letter, document, letter. My practice attempts at this just kept piling up on the same location, repeating itself over and over in one document. Are you following me on this? Okay. That was a mess. So, darling Jenna came to my house and attempted to cut and paste the letter and document into my e-mail. But it looked like one of those old telegrams that people used to send. Like it was all one long sentence. It evidently wasn't able to format correctly, which neither Jen or I were aware of. Yuck! Well, I had to manually redo the spacing, and, God help me, I ended up sending it like that. What a hot mess!
Yesterday, sweet Cate came out and told me that I needed to go to another one of my e-mail servers (?) cause my usual one couldn't format my writings in the proper way. Hooray!!!!! BUT, then I did something kinda embarrassing. I resent the reformatted letter and document with a note at the top, explaining that I was sending a "cleaned up" submission. Nothing like drawing attention to my weaknesses. WHATEVER!
So, fellow computer dummies, it's (1) highlight what you want to send (2) click "ctrl c" to copy
(3) click "ctrl v" to paste. Now was that so hard? Wait . . . oh wait . . . Cate said something about clicking "ctrl a" to highlight, but I just clicked and dragged. Whatever, again. If you are having problems, just call someone you know that is between five and eighteen years old. They'll know what to do.
Here's what Little J has to say about it.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
