MY COMPUTER

I’VE HAD A TOUGH WEEK. I ONLY SHARED A PART, BUT I definitely DESERVED AN UPBEAT DAY! FRI. WAS THAT DAY.

THINGS ARE BEING TAKEN CARE OF WITH MY EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE NOW. & DAYS B4 IT WENT HAYWIRE, I WAS PROMPTED 2 SEND OUT SEVERAL EMAILS THAT BENIFITTED ME 2. & THE DAY IT WENT HAYWIRE, I IMMEDIATELY FOUND, & SAVED THOSE EMAILS.

4 EX., MY MOM WAS PREPARING A TALK/SPEECH, & ASKED ME 4 HELP/ADVICE. I SENT SOME, BUT HAD SEVERAL “AFTERTHOUGHTS.” NOT SURE IF THEY HELPED HER, BUT THEY HELPED ME!

I’D TRIED (& FAILED RT. AWAY) 2 UPDATE THE FOLDER THAT CONTAINED THE FILES I SENT HER…LIKE 1 IS A COLLECTION OF MY FAV. QUOTES. SO, THE WHOLE FOLDER IS ABOUT 6 MO. OLD & MY FAV. QUOTES R NOT THERE.

WHEN I LOST MY EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE, I WAS SAD THEY WERE GONE…BUT SINCE I’D JUST SENT IT 2 MY MOM, I LOCATED MY EMAIL I’D SENT, & DOWNLOADED THE FILE. IN ADDITION 2 ALL MY FAV. QUOTES, I ENDED UP RETREIEVING 4 OUT OF 5 THINGS I’D JUST SHARED IN ORDER 2 “HELP HER.”

I ALSO HAVE A “JENNY-ESE” ASL CHART (WITH MY HAND, SHOWING “MY” WAY) THAT I HAD JUST FINISHED, BUT OPTED 2 NOT POST IT. IT’D TAKEN HOURS 2 MAKE—I COULDN’T QUICKLY “RE-MAKE” IT…BUT I’D MADE IT W/IN THE WEEK, & WAS IMPRESSED 2 HURRY & E-MAIL IT OUT, SO THE SCRAP. PG. WAS IN OLD EMAILS! I’VE LOST THE HUGE .PNG FILE (WHERE, IF I NEED 2, I CAN MAKE CHANGES), BUT THE .JPEG FILE WAS THERE! I LIKE THINKING I HAD SOME “HEAVENLY BACK-UP”!

BUT IT DIDN’T STOP THERE! I FELT I SHOULD LOOK INTO AN ONLINE BACK-UP SERVICE…W/VERY LITTLE RESEARCH—I ALMOST SEEMED LED THERE, I “HAPPENED UPON” A BACK-UP CO., CALLED “CARBONITE.” IT SEEMS 2 GOOD 2 BE TRUE, & CONSIDERING RECOVERY COSTS, WELL WORTH IT! IT CONTINUALLY—DAILY, IN MY CASE, BACKS-UP ANYTHING I REMOTELY CHANGE OR SAVE–& I DO NOTHING! & WHEN I SWITCH COMPUTERS, SUPPOSEDLY I CAN GET IT ALL ON MY NEW COMPUTER, BY ELECTING 2 RESTORE MY DATA!

BUT WAIT—THERE’S MORE! FOR 5 YEARS, I’VE SADLY FOUND NO PHOTOS OF FIA’S 2ND B-DAY. IT WAS 2 WEEKS PRIOR 2 MY STROKE. IT WAS THE LAST CAKE I’D MADE (I ALWAYS MADE FANCY CAKES, LIKE MK’S, BUT I THINK MK’S SURPASSED ME—A HIDDEN TALENT HE ONLY DISCOVERED BY TRYING 2 UPHOLD MY TRADITION).

ANYWAY, I KNEW I’D PRINTED THE PICS, BUT THEY’D MOVED. I HAD THE DIGITAL FILES ON MY LAPTOP, BUT MY LAPTOP HAD DISSAPPEARED B4 I RETURNED 2 THE COMP.! THEN FRI., CARA FOUND PICS I’D LOST OF BOTH GIRLS’ B-DAYS IN FEB. & MARCH OF 2004 (I WASN’T EVEN AWARE YET THAT JESS’ 4TH B-DAY WAS MISSING IN PICS, SINCE I HAD MEMORIBILLA)!

& I’VE BEEN SAD 2 MISS JESS’ LAST 2 SOFTBALL GAMES, 1 DUE 2 CAR TROUBLE, & ANOTHER DUE 2 MUD–FIGURES THAT BETWEEN THE LAST 2 SOFTBALL GAMES, I’D MISS HER HITTING 3 HOMERUNS! BUT AS THE DAY CAME 2 A CLOSE, I WENT 2 A GAME WHERE SHE GOT 1 MORE HOMERUN…SO, I FINALLY GOT 2 C 1!
