Updated: A-Z on Mondays: H is for Help

I crashed my laptop. I could just say, "My laptop crashed" - but that would be a fib. I downloaded a digiscrap freebie and I think that'swhat did it.

The good news is I just backed up all my documents and pictures Friday morning - so I have not lost a thing! (Just some digiscrap layouts - which is not bad at all in the scheme of things. I'll take it!) Andy got me a removable hard drive for Valentine's Day - best present ever!

I am working on his computer now - which I am totally not used to and have no pictures on - but I will post the updates as we go. Andy thinks that all the files are still there - we found them in DOS mode - and just the operating system is screwed up. We shall see!

Update: Andy had to reformat the entire drive. I did end up losing all those digiscrap files, 12 of them, which I spent all day Saturday doing. My friend Carol and I went to an all-day crop. I know I should be thankful that I didn't lose anything else - but I am still sad.

Update 2: My computer is back up and running. We reloaded all my software this morning - and then took the girls outside to play in the snow! I took a ton of pictures - which I immediately downloaded and picked one out to be my new header. It's similar to the January one - but it's all I got right now! :)

The girls had a great time in the snow - and didn't want to come inside at all. I am going to make a slideshow and post it tomorrow - too many to post now!
Well, OK ... here are a few ...

Oh I'm sorry! Sometimes computers suck.

How frustrating. Hopefully with a little bit of work and tweaking, you will be back up with little damage. Good luck.

i'm sure you were brought to tears over this... i would have been. i'm thankful that you didn't lose photos... but sometimes it is still hard to lose time!! i have a friend who is so particular about daving her photos in 2 places before hse takes them off her computer- adn since she told me that I have been nervous about my willy-nilly procedures!! i got one of those external hard drives for Christmas though... adn finally moved my photos over. so i am feeling better about it!

hoping that you are having a day full of smiles!

I am moving that idea to the top of my to do list. Glad it wasn't as bad as it could have been.
