June is here...

Another week gone by... the weeks and days are flying and yet there are still six more days of school left.... I'm worse than the kids... Last week we did not go to Back to School night... we did go to the movies but saw Night at the Museum... It was funny!! lots more action and characters too... of course the next day the teacher asked son3 why he didn't go to back to school night and he told her he was at the movies, lol....

Son3 has field games tomorrow at school... relay races and such... he's not sure about it... says he can't run fast and last year he fell down... I told him you are not a first grader any more, you are in second so I'm sure you will do better and it's just for fun anyway... then next week they have a field trip to the park right next to the school... wonder if they will have an end of year water day playing in the school sprinklers... Son2 is just waiting for finals next week....

Had a lot of drama last weekend... Not sure if the computer crashed or just wigged out but in my attempt to fix it, I erased the whole computer... And all our pictures from 2008 to now... plus the boys folders, son2 said he didn't have too much in his, I'm hoping son1 had transferred all his pictures to his zip drive to put on his new computer, but hubby lost a lot of pictures and a lot of artwork he hadn't transferred to his new computer yet... I had even put all the pictures in folders just waiting to transfer to CD's, what was I waiting for... Plus other instructions and such we had scanned into the computer for safe keeping and all the graphics I had collected last year.... Mostly we are sad for losing our San Diego and Monterey vacation pictures from last year and bdays and Halloween and Christmas... I have some from blogger/picasa that I might be able to retrieve... and I put some on smilebox but I can only view them on the blog not save them back... I lost all our emails we had saved from friends and family and all the pictures friends and family had sent... I have always wanted to clean up the computer, lol, well it's clean now, except the stuff we have put back in just to be online again... I didn't even install AOL as I can access it from my SBC account which I have linked to Internet explorer... So we are limping along on the basics... Hubby is wanting to get me a laptop for my bday, so we went to Best Buy on Sunday and liked the Dell's we saw... I was surprised how much lower the prices are compared to the last time I was wishing... Of course feeling guilty for getting a reward for crashing the computer... so am thinking of getting hubby a new Canon camera he has had his eye on for his bday at the end of the month...

I am still trying to figure out the lesson for losing everything on the computer... because I am spending too much time on the computer... maybe to appreciate the computer more instead of being mad at it for taking up so much time... we are past the shock phase and into the grieving stage of having lost so much... we have the memories... and I told the boys we will just have to do everything again so we can take more pictures...

Work has still been stressful with all the processes and more computer frustrations... probably why I didn't have patience with the computer at home cause between work and home computers both running as slow as molasses I had had enough... Eight more days til my bday and I will be on vacation....

Hubby will be home from work any minute and we are going to the grocery store to fill our bare cupboards....

Happy Journaling...

Some lessons are hard learned. I've done the same. Lost some and will never get them back either. I have 2005 til present on my computer right now and I need to tranfer them for safe keeping. I get to lazy I guess. You and I are procrastinators I think. Six days til school is out and 8 days til your birthday and vacation coming ! You've got a lot to look forward to for sure!!! Take care and hang in there ! 'On Ya'-ma

I am sorry you lost everything on your computer, ours died last week and we lost some things that can't be replaced so I understand how your feeling.
I hope you have a fantastic birthday and vacation.

I am so sorry you lost the important stuff saved to the computer. Oh it can be frustrating. I had a similar event happen because I was saving everything to a thumb drive and it broke. No retrieving the data. I feel your pain. But the good thing about those family trips and other special events, the time well spent will always be in your heart and no loss of a photo can take that away from you.

God Bless and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Sorry to hear that you lost so much. Maybe I'll take a lesson from this and get my stuff backed up. Still not sure about that one. My daughter is going to help me.
I have to get a new camera. When I find one that I like...
Hope you have a wonderful day,
Hugs, Sheri

i have come here 5 times in 2 days and only seen a blank page...i said i was not giving up and Wow, finally, i can see your words! Computers like to upset us and make us insane, i think. I have been in your shoes with a PC crash and losing things you can't get back. I am so sorry. I DO hope you get a new laptop. I hope you all go see UP and if you do, let me know. You will LOVE that movie. Love you friend.

I am very sorry to hear of your misfortune with the computer, Linda. Hope you can retrieve at least some of it - sometimes, it is possible to get things off a wiped disk after all.
