Feel like I'm back in school....

Well, the weekend has been crazy! I did my mystery shop, and have 3 more to go this week. This CC guy was a talker, but I did get some good info on Fios. With the cost per month I don't see us getting it soon. I'll just stick with the rabbit ears for now, 9 channels and holding....LOL. My oldest daughter has a Spanish video assignment due tomorrow, nothing like waiting til the last minute. I bought a Mini DV recorder on Ebay, and it showed up Saturday afternoon. So we spent Saturday with run throughs, hoping the edit program would work on the computer. And then all of Sunday, shooting and editing. Now I can't seem to get it to burn on a CD, it is driving me nuts. So I edited it and sent it back to the MDV camera, then hooked it up to the VCR and recorded on to the ancient VCR tape. She is just hoping they have a VCR in school to play it on.

This episode reminds me of the song "Video killed the Radio Star", but now it is "DVD Killed the VCR Star". This assignment was one I might have gotten my senior year of High School, and that is a big maybe, and now my DD has it in the 7th grade.(yikes) And without our help and the convenience of the computer she would be lost. Not to mention, I had to round up all the gadgets and ingredients. I should file a grievance with the school, but I feel like I might be the only parent doing so. I know that when I was teaching , if I had I given an assignment like this, the parents would have been picketing my classroom. Times have changed..."It takes a Village to Raise a Child" or should I say...smart parents and a thick wallet.LOL:)
Check out this video that took me all night to figure out how to upload. I am truly not a computer geek, but I think the video was great for a first timer! First go to Playlist to turn off music.
