Okay, so where did the last week go? For someone who always feels so busy, I don't seem to have much to show for it! This week has flown by and the weekend is upon us. This past Wednesday we had some very bad storms and a couple of tornadoes touched down very near us. About 4 miles away, there was a lot of damage and a couple of people injured. Not fun stuff, for sure! The weather has been quiet the last 2 days and I hope it stays that way. Here is a picture of some of the damage.
I had a scary couple of hours with my computer today. When I turned it on this morning (Friday) I got this error screen and it wouldn't boot up. I tried everything I knew to do, then call Dell support. When the tech asked "do you have anything on your computer that you would be upset about losing?" I knew I was in trouble. Duh, of course I do! He was proposing to reformat my hard drive and reinstall all my programs. I just couldn't bring myself to tell him about my thousands of digital scrapbooking files. I just croaked out, "couldn't we try something else first?" I won't bore you with the details but we did get it to boot up. As soon as I got off the phone, I started backing up photos and layouts as fast as I could. Most of them are backed up with Carbonite, but just to be sure I did the photos and the newest downloads I had. Phew!
