Thank You Thursday-Remember Me?

I'm still here!
This is where I've been:

Would you believe.... my computer's hard drive crashed.

After a week of NO COMPUTER, the devastating news was delivered by this poor computer technician. After all, he really was only the deliverer. He had no idea his job could be so challenging.

So I asked, as he was plugging in all of the chords....were they able to save anything? He sheepishly looked up and sad, No....sorry. I'm sure I must of had a look of horror on my face... ( he looked a little frightened at this point) NOTHING!?! I said as nicely as possible .... no sorry.

I lost EVERYTHING. All of my family pictures, files of talks, lessons, reports ... I mean EVERYTHING.

I felt totally lost! Everytime I tried to do something, I had to download a program just to begin the project.

I didn't just feel lost. I , in fact, was totally lost. All of my contacts and calendar (did I mention, EVERYTHING) I mean everything was gone.

After feeling really, really, really sorry for myself for some time (weeks now), I'm taking a big breath and returning. Mainly because Mack keeps putting on the pressure. He is so good at that. I've always said he's a mover and shaker!

Thanks Mack. It feels good to be back.

So much to say, so little time. Miss Adeline (aka my cute cleaning lady) is coming over, so I best get the toys and puzzles ready for.

I have so much to share~!
Stay Tuned....♥

Welcome Back!

I also had my computer to stop working. Had to buy a new one and start from scratch. I was lucky though that I store a lot of my photos on Image Event. And I have a my book that I store pictures on.

I am soooo glad you are back! and are recovering from the trauma. As soon as Marci told us what had happened, I was after Steve to put EVERYTHING on a zip drive, or something like that, and put it in a safe place. He still hasn't done it and I am nervous every day.

Anyway, a hearty welcome back to you! At least your BLOG was saved in cyberspace :)

So sorry. What a nightmare.

I'm so glad you're back! You've been missed!

Andrea said...

I was wondering where you'd been! I'm so sorry you lost everything. I would have felt sorry for myself, too.

Pheeew. So glad you're back!

Diane made a good point- at least all those pictures you posted on your blog are safe. :)

Yay! You're back! My mom and I were just talking about how we missed your blog :) I love your thank you thursdays...

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

Yeah - you're back! I hate/love computers.

Ann Marie said...

Glad to see a post.. and a comment today! :)

Get a external hardrive. It backs the stuff up so this won't happen again. I just had Chad do this a few weeks ago.

Too bad that we don't live down the road.. My Chad could have come and fixed it for free! :)

I read from Marci all the strings attached to the computer crash.... It's soo nice to have you back with us and it's nice to have your posts on my blog! Was really missing you!
Be strong!

xoxo! Christina

Thank goodness you're back! I was lost without your blog. You are an inspiration to women everywhere! (and a dear friend!)

I'm sorry your computer crashed. Did you get a new one?

KelleyAnne said...

Hi Karen♥

Nope...not a new computer. Just loading up this one and let me tell you this....It is backed up too!

I'm so glad you're back! I had this computer crash once. Remarkably a lot of files were rescued but every couple months I save everything to an external hard drive.
