SHE'S BACK!!!

Posted by Picasa
My computer is back home where she belongs.
And the best part?
So are the tens of thousands of photos that I thought I had lost.
Excuse me while I go burn all my photos to Cd's, upload them all to web albums, and put them on a flash drive.
I have learned one can never be too sure.
And my poor heart can not stand another scare like that.

LazyCrazyMama said...

Yay!! Oh, the pictures... I also need to do some backups. That would so totally suck!

Hailey said...

Congrats on getting her back. Because of your scare, I am now on top of backing all of my pictures up.
I don't think my heart could stand a scare like that at all.

I am glad it is back! Everyone deserves to have a working computer.

Stephanie said...

Oh yay! That must be a great feeling to know you have all your photos. Whew!

Krystyn said...

Whew! That was a close one! Now, go buy and external drive (less than $50) and back those puppies up!

Grammy Staffy said...

So glad that it worked out well for you. I keep saying that I will burn my pictures to CDs....maybe I'd better do it instead of talking about it....or get an external drive like Krystyn suggested.

I'm happy for you

Phew! So relieved for you! Like I said, I've lost some in the past and it's PAINFUL.

I am happy that you were able to get all of your pictures back. This is a good reminder of why I need to get caught up on burning my pics on a disk.

Susan said...

Yeah...so happy for you! I have started the process of burning but really do need a burning day to get it all done.

This post made me think back to before we had computers. What did we do?? Yep.. I'm still thinking. I can't really remember.

Anyway, glad "she's" back and thank you for keeping up your blob. :)

Thank goodness it's all back! Don't we all learn our lessons the hard way?

I learned a little tip from a photo-maniac friend this summer - burn your pics to DVD instead of CDs. They hold WAY more stuff (I managed to get more than a year's worth of photos, and I take a lot) onto one DVD with room to spare.

And now I'm doing it all the time. Stories like yours freak me out enough that I will take the time to ensure that my precious memories don't end up lost forever.

I never did get the story of the "gifter" of your laptop . . . was it Chad?

Glad you don't have to share your internet anymore!

Rachel said...

yeah.....i am so glad for you. Pictures mean so much to me so I could understand completely what you where going through. I am glad it all worked out ;-)

Chelle said...

Wendi, I am so happy for you!!

Yay, yay, and yay!!!

Lisa said...

What a relief! I swear, that would make me cry like no other!

So glad that all was not lost!
