Oh, The Frustration

The other day Khloe came home from school very, very upset. She'd not done well on a math test and was worried that I would be disappointed. I really wasn't upset. It must be hard for a ten-year-old to do algebra. I have gotten a bit frustrated with her lately, though. She's asked me to teach her how to knit, so I did. She worked on a few rows and quit. She says it's too hard. I told her that if she really wants to do it she needs to practice. She doesn't want to practice - she wants to be good right away at everything she tries. So, fine. Don't knit. I wasn't forcing her to, anyway. Last week I started a video podcast. (I'll link it in the sidebar.) Tonight I got the episode up - yay! - and showed it to her. Guess what? She wants to start knitting again so she can record with me. Sigh.

Khloe has been asking me to make a video podcast with her and we recorded Monday night. I'm having such a hard time getting it to upload anywhere that I'm close to throwing my computer against the wall. I need someone to come over here and help me. I'm not a computer person. I can make loads of things and love working with my hands. Code is not my thing. Hardware, software, any kind of "ware" isn't legible for me. If any of you can come over, call, draw pictures, or help in any way that uses no technical language I would greatly appreciate it.
I'm going to work on what does speak to me - yarn and fiber. I don't have pictures right now because it's all on the video.
