Really good news and stupid bad luck

I have some really good news... in addition to good things I have going on with "Audra Jennings PR" as I call it, I'm joining the team at New Growth Press as Publicity and Social Media Manager! 



I have worked with the team on various projects for I can't tell you how many years! (I think probably 14... something like that.) I worked on publicity for the first book they released. I am excited about the new adventure.

It's the first time I've worked on staff for a publisher, so even though I get to do a lot of what I have done before, I'll get to venture into some new areas too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After lunch with the owner today, I ventured home to set up a new computer. I haven't worked on a Mac in forever, but shouldn't be a big deal.

Shouldn't be...

I set up a new Apple ID at the same time I set up the computer password. Then, I did updates that restarted the computer before getting the validation email on the account. That completely locked me out of the computer and I spend over two hours with Apple support and went through FOUR support reps. That's partly had to get higher level of support part I got disconnected from the second guy.

Then, after I got into the computer, I got locked out of the ID for another 24 hours. It was a mess!

Talk about feeling like an idiot. I felt like a giant loser.

Technology has been the farthest thing from my friend lately. I feel like I haven't gotten squat done in two weeks. I have literally lost track of the number of times I have talked to AT&T via phone and chat on their website. My internet connection has mucked up everything I have been working on. Supposedly they were going to send me another router because mine was faulty (same diagnosis as my old one about two weeks ago), but that order never went in. Finally, they have decided it is a line issue and will be out on Saturday between 8 AM - 8 PM. It's a good thing I planned to be home anyway.

So help me, after Saturday, it better be fixed. I have work to do!
