I finally made it over to my Mom’s to write this post! Unfortunately Friday morning I woke up, turned on my computer and…. nothing!
My computer is dead :( :(
We took it in to the repair place Friday. They called later to say that Windows crashed and that they aren’t sure if my hard drive is able to be saved or not. They are supposed to be trying to do some data recovery for me, all of our family pictures back to 2004 are on there! Plus all of my email and contacts! They said that if there is no physical damage to the hard drive they may be able to save my pictures ($45.00 an Hour!!!) but that recovering anything from Outlook Express is almost impossible.
Basically this really sucks and I have no way to contact anyone! If you are a PR rep that I’ve worked with, are currently working with or have missed a deadline for please know that I feel absolutely terrible about this! I will try to be in touch with you as soon as possible. I am going to be trying to forward my email to my gmail account but I am not sure if all of them will come through and it will only be the ones since Friday so if you have been in touch with me before then please touch base with me again. Email forwarding is NOT working for me so If you haven’t heard from me in awhile you can try sweetgingerdog at gmail dot com for urgent issues.
To my readers, please don’t give up on me! I am missing all of you terribly and even though I don’t know if my computer will be fixed tomorrow, next week or next month you can be sure that I WILL be back! I have so many fun giveaways planned and am excited about the upcoming holiday season!Also, please know the current giveaways are still going!
I am pretty upset about this and am trying not to think about everything I’ve lost on my computer – it’s hard though! My computer has done a lot for me since we bought it in new in 2004. That old HP opened up doors that I didn’t even know were there. Being without it is strange but I am going to try and take this unexpected reprieve to spend more time with my family. Maybe the house will get cleaned (HA!), maybe I’ll catch up with my reading (almost done with Cold Mountain), maybe I’ll do some more crocheting. Love you all and see you soon!
