iCloud set up Part 1

hee hee this blog is about my frustrations on setting up my I Cloud ---Part 2 will be my solution. I just think it is funnier this way. Ok the manufacturers APPLE recommended set up is to set up all electronic devices on the I Cloud. So I start with my Apple iPhone ---- let’s go! Check to see if you have the latest iOS revision ----- iPhone states I have iOS revision 5.1.1 which is the latest revision and I can add I Cloud............. but in the corner of reassuring me I am fine there is a download for the new wonderfully improved and latest revision iOS 6. Huh? Do I Cloud at 5.1.1 or download 6??? Okay I make a decision to use 5.1.1 and continue to enter my Apple ID. Then it says??? Account ID, cost of I Cloud information. I check for cost information. There is my credit card information asking me for my secret code??? Huh? How much is this going to cost? I thought this was free? The free stuff that needs a credit card number I have learn over the years means funny charges, with weird names will start showing up on your credit card bill. Oh and I learn once you set a password on your I Cloud account ---you can never change it! Well this has been a problem for me in the past --- I was so paranoid of the internet in the 80s that I gave all password information incorrect information. Phony birthdates, phone mother's maiden names, phone first car owned. And like more liars I could not remember all my lies!! Lol or all my passwords!! I am going back to the drawing board and go at this I Cloud set up for a different angle. When I was with ATnT they helped me with setting up apps. Sprint tells me to call customer service. Sprint customer service is young Philippine girls teaching their friends to answer phones with no training. So I will get back to this later: I will then write part 2. Of I Cloud set up.

Letting Go and Letting God 2012

Easter has passed. And being an "older person" now. I have kind of started some rituals that help me deal with life. I have set up a yearly plan that works for me. It is where September starts my year. Planting bulbs, starting new classes etc.
Well Easter is the end of one of my seasons. And the beginning of my Season of Manifestation

In short, we have a prayer box. On Easter we review our prayer requests. For every request granted we thank God and give Him the Glory. For every request with a "not yet" or "no" answer we give back to God.

Before I looked at my box this year I was rather down heartened. I felt I would have 2 dozen things to Let GO!! But the "analytical" in me was so blessed. Wow wow wow There were an abundance of PRAYERS ANSWERED!!! Tough ones also!! It was nice to review those issues and reflect on how God had the better PLAN. and how truly BLESSED I am.

Bottom line ---- only 8 out of 24 needed to be given back to GOD!!! As I was preparing my letters to each prayer request it occurred to me that they felt like failures to me. They are like the fly ball that I missed! To this day I can remember playing softball and a fly ball coming to me. And for some unknown reason ---- I ducked!! ugh!!! the humiliation!! It was not a hard ball, it was not going to hurt, it was right in front of me---and I ducked. WHY???

That failure haunted me for days. and while tying my notes to the balloons I thought how these 8 items felt like "my failures". My missed balls, my strike outs, my falling down in public. But then I realized just as I realized then ------ I need to just pick myself up again and try harder.

Sure there were some jerks that tried to bring my "missed fly ball up in conversation" or liked to reminisce about it with their friends. But soon their constant attempts to try to define me or put me down to make them feel better about themselves just got pitiful and ridiculous. Because honestly I got over it and accomplished so much more since then.

So with the aspirations to just "get over it" and go on to my purpose in life. I released my unfulfilled dreams, hopes, relationships to GOD. So I released 8 things to GOD. That is not to say those same things will not try to take a stronghold on me again. and they may end up as unanswered prayer again this year. But that is okay. 66% success rate on the impossible is pretty good!!!!!

While scanning photos----- a photo from my wedding

I know my father loved me very much but he had a "truck drivers sense of humor".

My niece was about 10 years old when I married Tony. Lori Lynn at the age of 10 years old attended my wedding rehearsal. Her father, my brother, stood up with Tony at the wedding and her mother was hostess of the wedding.

Lori Lynn was young but already knew what she expected to happen at a wedding.

Lori talks today about how confused she became at my wedding rehearsal the night before the wedding.

Tony was not my first husband. And my father never could miss an opportunity to crack a joke,

During the rehearsal my father thought it would be funny to say ------ When asked ---"Who gives this woman away?" My father replied "I do........and this time keep her"

I might add here also my father provided my husband with a sympathy card at the wedding reception. Something about I know the next few years will be very difficult and you have my sympathy and Yes my father thought of himself as very funny indeed.

While scanning photos----- a photo from my wedding

Luckily my father behaved himself during the actual wedding and replied with a correct---"her mother and I do"

Looking at this photo so many years later--- I either had on very tall high heels or the camera was at a strange angle because I did not tower over my father in height.

My father was about 5'10" and I am about 5' 5"
