Monday Mumblings

My poor desktop computer crashed on Wednesday.

As in...nothing works.


I can use my laptop, but my desktop houses all my photos.

All 10, 000 of them.

Guess who was depressed and crying uncontrollably last week?

Guess who has been researching external hard drives?

Guess who bought 2 flash drives?

Guess who has been meaning to back up all her photos?

Guess who thought she was invincible?

Yup, that would be me.

My computer guy, who I am now in love with for saving my photos, is being bribed with money food kind words.

I hope he really is able to retrieve all my pictures.

I can't imagine having to tell my kids that there is no physical proof they even existed for the past two years.


With one computer out, we are back to sharing the Internet.

I am not good at the sharing.

I liked it better when it was MINE!


My Internet is still giving me panic attacks.

It is going out a few hours at the time each day.

I am still wondering if I have readers at Suddenlink who have staged an intervention.

If they are reading: Not. funny.


I went to my High School Reunion planning meeting last night.

It occurred to me that I have less than 2 months before the reunion.

I have only known about this for oh...about 2o Years!!!

Why have I procrastinated my weight loss program?

I should be so motivated.

Okay, after last night I AM motivated.

I WILL be at the gym tonight!


What do a Sonic Gift card and an autographed copy of Bunkco Babes have in common?

Absolutely nothing.

Except I won both of them this month.

Can you believe it?

Turns out Mr. Random Generator doesn't hate me after all.

Thanks to Beachy Mimi and Laskigal for hosting such wonderful giveaways on their blogs.


I am going to try and comment on as many of your posts as possible tonight.

What doesn't get done tonight will not get done.

I am going to try to blog guilt free.

I am taking your advice and I am using my "Mark all as read " button for the first time.

Wish me luck!


I am in need of one more "swapper" for my Favorite Things Swap.

The first one to respond and give me your information will get a partner.

I went to my last class reunion 8 weeks postpartum. Yeah, that sucked!

So sorry about your pictures. I really do hope they get them all back to you!

Marla said...

good luck with the photos... and the reunion... remember the dudes are the once who look the scariest after 20 years and the girls you envied in HS now don't looks so hot either...

Elaine A. said...

Oh gosh, I've lost pics before. NOT FUN! Hope all your stuff is saved (and that you learned your lesson! HA!)

Congrats on your bloggy winnings! : )

Christie said...

You know, JUST LAST WEEK, we bought an external hard drive and put all our pictures on there. For that very reason.

I hope they recover yours. I was sick at the THOUGHT of losing them. Can't imagine actually having it happen.

Kelli @ "Writing" the Waves said...

Oh! My heart just dropped. I hope you get all your photos back. I really need to back mine up. I try to load them online pretty frequently. I'm not very savvy with flash drives and such.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Krystyn said...

Oh no, a broken computer and not sharing! That's scary! I sure hope you get your photos back!

And, the diet before the reunion has to be overrated, right? I say go to Sonic and enjoy yourself. My favorite is the orange cream slush! It's like a sipable dreamsicle! So jealous!

4funboys said...

losing my photos would be my worst nightmare... I don't have them ANYWHERE else - yet!

I keep saying I'm going to do that...

Leave It To Lyla said...

been there, done that, it sucks!!! love you though!!!

Susan said...

I sure hope that computer genius enjoys your cooking...I mean kind words. Seriously, I hope he manages to save your precious memories.
"Mark all as read" is your friend. Embrace the freedom it will give you when you have 1346 new posts in your reader because of your addiction.
Sorry you are having to share your internet. Not. fun. indeed!

amanda said...

has the bribery paid off??

still praying for a happy photo recovery mission :)

Grammy Staffy said...

I'm so sorry about your computer crashing....I surely hope that you get all of your pictures back. If you need me too I can copy the ones I have in my google reader to send back to you.

When you can come on over and pick up some blog love on my Sept. 10th post. Hope everything works soon.
Love, Grammy Lura

Wow - that's a lot of mumbling.
I think that Sonic gift card will work well with that weight loss thing you've got going on. Just forward it on to me - they've got that fried ice cream thing that's just delish.

Lauren in GA said...

Oh, no!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so, so, sorry!!!

I am keeping my fingers crossed that you can retrieve all of your pics.

If you figure out how to blog without guilt please share your secret!

Emy5 said...

Hope you get all your pictures back. What a nightmare.

Good luck with the wight loss thing, but with your personality you'll be the life and soul of the party at the reunion.

just jamie said...

PLEASE tell me you got your pictures back. Holy panic!

(If you need a swapper, I think I can pull it off.)
