Computer Crash

Recently I read on Nina’s blog that she lost all her pictures on her computer. She was devasted. It reminded me that I wanted to get an external hard drive to back up all my images. My digital camera is only a few years old but old enough that I’ve taken over a thousand pictures. My honey gifted me an external hard drive for my birthday…what was it a week ago? I just haven’t made the time to back up my pictures yet. Then, this morning I wanted to sign in and post a picture or two of my son’s high school graduation…which was yesterday (yea, timmy). I turned on my pc…a black screen…with a message about “operating system failure”…no, this can’t be…turn off the computer…turn it back on…same message…..insert restore disk to repair….yeah, ok no problem we have that…stick it in…”formating hard drive”…NOOOOOOO, this wipes out everything..too late…I LOST ALL MY PICTURES. ..can we just say the rest of the day is just a blur. My dh worked all day on restoring the operating system, reloading my windows programs, window updates, virus protection, the new photoshop elements 5 software and the external hard drive. All our christmas’s, thanksgivings, vacations, sons’ school functions (he sings and has his own band), and images of all my artwork. Heartbreaking. It’s just unbelievable. I usually try to see the good in situations. I realize this is a great time to set up my directories to be organized the way that I want them and to start again with loading in pictures, making better art than ever before…but just for tonight I’m goin to mourn the loss of all my pictures and shared moments over the past couple of years with my family, the loss of all my pictures of my beloved little Shihtzu, Bailey. I had some cute ones of him. Of course, I also lost all my favorite links, I had at least a hundred. At least I have the images and links on my blog. Please, make sure your images are backed up. Don’t wait like me.

I”ll have new art soon and it will be backed up. 🙂 stay tuned. 🙂
