"Roughing It..."

Still here -- still computer-less... We're shopping around and hoping to be back up and running over the 4th of July weekend. We feel like we are roughing it though -- you don't realize how much you use your computer until it breaks! GOOD NEWS -- a friend from work was able to save everything (PHOTOS!!) off of our hard drive -- HOORAY!

Today is the last day of school for my 8-year-old and she is thrilled, but my husband and I are anticipating the call of "I'm BORED" to begin, let's see -- tomorrow, probably!!

I hope you are enjoying the start of summer! "Talk" to you soon!

A Cautionary Tale...

I'm a little out of commission right now -- my home computer all of a sudden dared to stop working yesterday!! Hopefully I will be up and running again soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to pass along these words of wisdom (that would have served me well several days ago...) -- if you take as many digital photos as I do, BACK THEM UP ON CD'S!!!! I actually did that (for the first time) with our Florida vacation pictures, and I do have access to a lot of my more recent pictures (past 2 years?) through Kodakgallery.com, but the ones that I took earlier than that (you know, like the ones of my littlest girl when she was a baby...), are stuck on the computer -- hopefully salvageable in the near future!!

But please, learn from my error -- back up your digital photos!
