You thought I just had an awful case of Blogger’s Block, didn’t ya?
Nothing to write about. No blogworthy adventures, no notable moments.
See, shortly after hitting PUBLISH on Gracie’s post, I knocked over a rather significant amount of liquid onto my beloved laptop.
I’m getting weepy even writing about it.
And I totally don’t buy the whole not worth crying over spilled milk. Cuz I am still traumatized.
So I can’t type a period, an M, or use the delete key. Which, ya know, is kinda important in trying to leave comments or send emails.
I’ve been surviving by sneaking moments on Mr. Daddy’s computer (which is like driving someone else’s car – nothing is ever where it should be), or on my ancient older-than-me computer that secretly plots my demise.
You think I’m kidding?
The Computer-Guru-Friend (everyone should have one!) who looked at this ancient beast’s innards, proclaimed that a metal thingamajig was dangerously bulging. I asked breathlessly if it would shoot off like a bullet?
Computer-Guru-Friend gravely proclaimed that it probably would and most likely in my sleep.
The result of all this bellyaching? I am desperately behind on reading your blogs (so sorry!) and desperately trying to back up all precious photos and videos!
I mean, what if we had missed out on reminiscing over these gems someday?
Aww, for reals… I would be heartbroken to lose this one.
And as I frantically went through my photo folders, I realized that Mr. Daddy was quite a sneaky guy. There were approximately 241 pictures of my behind. I mean, I’m trying to take pictures of my pointe shoes to sell on eBay and the dude burns up my memory card with this? Oy
(Very ballet-like, no? And you’re welcome for not enlarging that photo)
As I looked for any retribution photos, I stumbled across this one. Let’s all take a moment to mourn the passing of Itty Bit’s toddlerhood.
If you made it to the end of my randomness, let me share the awesome news with you: a sweet reader left a comment on Gracie’s birthday post. She offered to match the donations to the Carenet Crisis Pregnancy Center in Gracie’s name. Not only that, she matched the VIEW count, not just the comments. How generous is that?! (And because I don’t want to put her on the spot, please go back to those comments to see who it is – and go give her a giant bloggy hug too! Thank you my friend :)
Thank you to all of you who stopped by and wished Gracie a Happy Birthday, and who shared names of your own loved ones to honor. You are such a blessing!
Now, any ideas how to fix a drowned laptop???
