It is a good thing that I chose farming

Some days I regret my career choice.  Sometimes after a long day in the field, I think I should go work in an office.  These days are few and far between, but it happens.  Lately though, I am so glad that I am a farmer.  I am fairly certain that all of the technology in my life has become self-aware and is conspiring against me.  It all started when I tried to upgrade to a new-to-me laptop.  Something was wrong with my old one and I got a newer one in March.  Of course, it took me until now to try to transfer all of my files. I managed to transfer all of my files and get my Microsoft Office installed.  Then I tried to install my copy of Quickbooks.  It didn’t go well.  Intuit somehow got my account mixed up with someone else’s account.  After a week and a half and way too many hours on the phone, I talked to a lovely customer service person who fixed the problem.  She was amazing and computer problems are solved(I thought).  Shortly after getting the laptop updated, I tried to redo my old laptop for Nathan to use.  I killed it.  Well, that was unfortunate, but I had just finally gotten everything working on the new laptop two hours earlier so all of our data is safe.  Everything seems to be working fine for a week or so.  I think my troubles are ended.  Then I decide to start updating our website.  I am terrible about keeping it updated and I am trying to be better about it.  Well, I am not sure how or why, but something has happened to the website and I have to delete the whole thing and start over.  So, after a frustrating few days of trying to fix the site, I spent a frustrating morning figuring out how to delete it.  Five hours later, and here we are.  I hope you like the new website.  I am looking forward to spring when I will spend way too many hours working in the field.  I much prefer it to fighting with technology.  Wish me luck until then!
