Ode To PowerPoint

Oh PowerPoint, how I've missed thee
my hard drive crashed last summer,
and quickly you did flee.

Okay, that's about as creative as I can get at 5:30 a.m.

Shouldn't I be getting ready to work?
Yeah, yeah, but I just had to quickly post (being the avid blogger that I am ;)
about how over the moon I am to have Power Point back in my life.

I bought Pages and Keynote, hoping to get everything synched with my iphone and ipad.
It synchs well,
and it's user friendly, 
but it's not Power Point.
I had invested time and more time learning how to make activities for my class, posters, 
and the art adjusting and maneuvering clipart to make my stuff POP!

But to relearn EVERYTHING on Keynote and Pages?
Ugh...I tried.
But it kept me from creating new activities, updating old activities, and certainly kept me from adding any products on my TPT.

But the light at the end of the tunnel?
I discovered my district offers Microsoft Office and at a Superb discounted price for employees.
And this morning at 5:15 a.m. my fingers carelessly typed, corrected, and easily inserted accent marks to update something I've been needing for a looooong time.
