Yesterday I woke up to a very unpleasant message on our computer. It read Operating System cannot be Found. Unfortunately my futile efforts to restore the computer failed. The saddest part is that our pictures from the last few months, including Danyka's 4th Birthday, family get togethers, Marine World and other fun summer pictures are all on the system. It would have been wise to back them up or upload them, but I didn't that, nor do I have hard copies. Lesson Learned...that's for sure. The system is at Circuit City and they are hopeful that they will be able to retrieve my files, but there is no guarentee. We're pretty sure the hard drive failed.

The fun part today was getting a new computer. We knew that the other was drawing near it's end but you never want to shell out the money for a new one. We replaced our old HP with another HP and we are pretty excited. There is a lot of work to do to get it up and running like we want it to, but we'll get there.

You can say a quick prayer for us that our important files will be saved. We would appreciate it. Thanks for reading my sob story. I promise more happy stories to come.

I sure did pray that very thing! I am so sorry, and know that I would be devistated if that happened to me.
You don't have to apologize for writing ANYTHING. It's your own blog. You can post whatever you want. Plus, I like knowing what's really going on, even if that is not a happy thing.
Love you! Big hugs,

The whole goal of my blog is that you laugh, so I'm glad you do. My point isn't so you can keep up on the lives' of my kids and family.
So thanks for the comment.

And I enjoyed watching Danyka's video.

So sorry to hear about the crash! I've lost two hard drives that way ... you think I would've learned after the first time.
