I don't mean to alarm you, but my computer crashed. CRASHED. Today I am coming to you live from my laptop. The one with the sensitive mouse pad thing and my not favorite clickity clickity keyboard. It's not my favorite for writing on- that is for certain. But I am glad that it is at least functional, which is a step ahead of the desktop.
The biggest problem is that my coupon savings tracker spreadsheet is on the computer, as well as a tracking document for our taxes. Oh- and all of our photographs from the last 10 years. OH.MY.FREAKING.HEAVENS!
Not kidding, my heart is kind of hurting. Why oh why oh why didn't I just stick with a 35MM and have paper photos clogging up my entire house? Why oh why oh why didn't I back them up religiously to snapfish? Why oh why oh why didn't I just use those little plastic card things as photo storage instead of cleaning them off each time and reusing them?
My husband disassembled our old computer and has 'something' in a little plastic baggie. He says he can recover them. We'll see.
Until then, I guess I am stuck with the sample pictures that are on this laptop.............
In addition, I have lost all of the blogs that I read. Each morning, some folk waste their time watching world breaking news, I on the other hand catch up on all my virtual friends business. It's what I would call my 'hobby'. I enjoy it, it is the one thing I do every day that is frivilous and all MINE. Except now I am kind of lost because I can't remember all of the ones, or their names, that I have read. UHG.
I guess if I can't remember them, then they weren't one of my favorites. I'm still grieving though.
I told my mom about my computer. And all my photos. And you know what she said? Oh no- not your blog! I'm just not sure she will ever grasp how that new fangled internets thing works (smile mom- we are laughing with you).
