How to make a Big Mistake:
1. Lose all your passwords.
2. Don't have back-up of your passwords.
3. Allow your grandson to download a new game on the iPad.
4. When iTunes asks for your Apple password, don't remember and reset it.
5. Realize that all of your devices are now asking for your Apple password repeatedly and things are seriously AFU.
6. Google "all my devices are asking for my Apple password".
7. When all of the pages that come up for Apple support won't load, take their advice and clear all your cookies, ignoring the fact that certain things will be eliminated from your devices such as "stay logged in" stuff, meaning that you have to re-login and of course, you don't remember your passwords.
8. And so forth.
The good news?
The game downloaded fine!!!!!
Also, I finally remembered my Google account password.
Anyway, it's been a pretty fine day except for all of that bullshit which is the very definition of first-world problems which does not preclude a certain amount of tension, frustration, and possible tears.
I finished Maggie's dinosaur dress.
It would have been SO much better if I'd had the persistence to figure out the ruffles on the shoulder straps but life is just too short for some things. It's a perfectly imperfect dress but it is quite colorful, isn't it? I love the contrast between the funky dinosaurs and the ruffle. It's a happy dress. I feel like I'm relearning how to sew. And that feels good.
And so it goes. The boys woke up a lot earlier than I did this morning (but not as early as their Boppy who got up at 4:30 to go fishing) and were sweet and thoughtful and just came in and got the iPad (the implement of my woes) and played games on it in their bed while I continued to sleep. Finally, about 8:30 they let me know they were ready for me to get up and so I did and we had pancakes instead of French toast but that was okay. Owen helped me make the pancake batter.
I forced them to help me make their bed and they did a good job with that today and Gibson even got into smoothing out the wrinkles. They're such funny little boys. Owen had brought a stuffed Pooh pillow for me to stitch up where it had come unsewn and I did that for him. He was grateful. And when Lily came to pick them up, Maggie gave me many, many kisses and I gave her a pancake.
Mr. Moon caught red snapper today and has filleted it and I am about to go fry some up. I'm sure he's exhausted. He said they had to hang out on Dog Island for awhile before they went offshore because of a huge storm and of course we didn't get a drop of it. I hear the lightening on the way down to the coast was tremendous.
The AC has not quit running for days and still can't keep up with the heat which has kept me out of the garden. I did manage to get my lazy ass out there this afternoon to find that the okra had grown to inedible proportions in the past three days (see picture above) but I did manage to cut some that we can eat. I did not even look at the field peas.
I need to dig up sweet potatoes which I did not plant this year but which are flourishing from whatever I left in the ground last summer. Even if I only get enough for two meals, it will be thrilling.
I think that tomorrow I may start another Maggie dress, another of the criss-crossed back strap sundresses if I can find some stashed fabric in my sewing dresser. Maybe the blue eyelet material with some of my Virgin of Guadalupe fabric as a lining. She could wear it to church!
Don't forget to back-up your password list. I hear there's an app for that. I need to use it.
That is one cute little dress - the dinosaurs are fantastic!ReplyDelete
For the life of me I can't really remember what I bought that material for but it's funky and I like it.Delete
A happy dress, exactly!ReplyDelete
Happy dress for a happy little child. Which is a happy proposition.Delete
I love that dress and can't wait to see Maggie's church one! Ha! I keep my passwords on two sheets of paper that are folded up and in a very secret hiding place.ReplyDelete
I kept mine on the computer. Haha!Delete
I had a similar password fiasco. I think it was a yahoo account that had my backup password to a hotmail account but I couldn't remember that password either. I had to look up that password but theme remembered I had closed that account. Major brainfuck. Sadly, that account was associated my first blogger account so I can never access it again except to read it.ReplyDelete
I finally went to the dollar store and and got an address book where I keep them in alphabetical order. I doubt someone breaking into the house would think to look there.
I love the dress!
I just can't even believe that someone would come into my house and look for my computer passwords. I guess they could steal my phone and find them. Jeez. I don't know. It all seems so ridiculous.Delete
I have a spreadsheet with all of my passwords on it. Most of them aren't flat out listef, but instead I have enough of a clue for each that I can use to jog my memory. I have this spreadsheet saved at home and at work and printed out as well. I have to update it if course every damn time some stupid site makes me come up with a new ungodly complicated password. But it's a lifesaver at least once a week.ReplyDelete
The new dress is awesome. The next one for church :) sounds great.
You take this seriously! Dang!Delete
Maggie is the best dressed child in the nation! Adorable dress! I forget passwords every moment and I do not write them down so I am constantly changing them and fucking everything up. Hopeless, blond and old...I have come to the final stage- acceptance.ReplyDelete
It's just so much fun to make little baby girl dresses. You can cut them out on a table and just get crazy with fabric.Delete
As to being hopeless, blond and old, I am no longer blond but have accepted that I am definitely the other two things.
LastPass is what we're using. Vergil is too dang tech savvy to let me just use the same password over and over, or to write them down. Dang.ReplyDelete
That darn Vergil! Protecting your identity and stuff like that! He's so mean.Delete
I've been picking tomatoes off a few Tommy Toe plants that I didn't plant this year in the main garden. The plants just sprang up out of the soil. It's an excellent gift. I saw that storm over the Gulf this morning, and it looked pretty intense.ReplyDelete
The only pumpkins I ever grew came out of a compost pile. Volunteer plants are the very best, aren't they? They ARE an excellent gift.Delete
I didn't even think to look at the weather before Glen took off for offshore fishing. I just trust in his judgement which, so far, has proven to be good.
Maggie's dresses by Mer Mer are just gorgeous! Yikes about the passwords.ReplyDelete
I have a document where I list all my sites and passwords but mainly I just use the same one over and over. not so smart but makes life infinitely easier. the only thing in my garden right now is okra.ReplyDelete
OMG. Password horror. I have lists of passwords and they just get longer and longer. It's all really insane.ReplyDelete
