Little Book of Calm

In the past, I have blogged about getting in touch with my nerdy side, but the problem is, most of the time I just fluke it when I get technical things right.

I was having a particularly non-nerdy time the other night when I was trying to watch Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith on our big screen and I couldn't get it to work. To be honest, I didn't try THAT hard, and I ended up just watching it on the laptop, when Hubs came home from his tutorial and wondered what on earth I was doing.

I explained (in an appropriately whiney voice) that I, once again, could not work the awesome technology that he had set up. He set it up for me, stating very nicely that I'd seen him do it a hundred times, to which I (whingely) replied "but I don't have to pay attention when you're around!!!!"

The next day, Hubs had a present for me:

Seriously? This is one of the most thoughtful, wonderful presents I've ever been given. And it's not only step-by-step instructions, but it also has explanations about how things work and how to fix problems.

Hubs is a problem-solving kinda guy.
Problem: Wifey is getting upset that she can never remember or doesn't know how to work gadgets and gizmos.
Solution: Write Wifey a guide to help her to learn new things and feel useful around technological things.

Hubs, you always know how to help me out. Even if it's just listening to me whinge, you always know what to do and what's best. I am in awe of you. x x x

(Oh! And I can't WAIT for Part 2!)
