I just looked at the date on my last post and I can't believe that it's been over a month! I really need to be more consistent about this...much like everything in my life.
I recently became very thankful for blogger. You see, last week our hard drive crashed and much to our dismay, we lost all of our family pictures from this whole calendar year. I'm thankful for blogger because I've downloaded so many pictures from this year so at least I have those. This is the part of the story where I say, "they're just pictures and at least I still have the healthy kids that are the subjects of those pictures". I will say that I've already had my cry and I'm fine now. The good news is that there are places where you can send your hard drive and see if "they" can retreive information. I imgaine these uber intelligent guys in a "clean room" taking apart my hard drive and working miracles. The bad news is that it will cost anywhere from $300-$1000. The mommy side of me thinks that it's completely worth it. I'm trying to fight the logical side of me. We'll see. It's not something we can do right now anyway.
So, all this to say, I will try to be more consistent. We went down to the Columbia Zoo yesterday and it was super fun. I'll try to get some pictures up from that.
For right now, I need to get a shower and some things done while Sesame Street is on... I love Sesame Street!

Oh Tina! I'm so sorry about your pictures. I'm sure its an awful feeling. I have imagined that happening to us. We back up files frequently now. My problem is almost all the pictures on our hard drive have never been developed!

we thought we lost ours, too on our external hard drive but we took our it to computer direct on laurens rd. and they retrieved all of our pics for like $30 or something. definitely worth a try.

I use a service called Carbonite (ww.carbonite.com) to backup all of my data. It only cost $50/year and backs up all of your data as each file is changed. It is super-easy to setup and install. Of course, I didn't start using it until AFTER I lost a hard drive and a bunch of data ... lesson learned!
