Ugh.

So, I woke up this morning, and turned on my computer. All of my personal data is gone. All my pictures, files, documents - POOF GONE. Tried to do a system restore, there's nothing to restore to. Tried to pull some data off my external hard drive that I just got a couple weeks ago... tells me the drive needs to be formatted.

Not my day.

My chest hurts, and my computer is broken. Oh, and did I mention I injured my right ankle again? Oh yeah.

I've dropped it off (the computer, not my ankle) at the local repair shop to see if they can recover the data and figure out what happened. They said it could take 4 days. FOUR DAYS. Are you kidding me?

The good news? I'm not an idiot. I recently backed up all my files on CD, so all is not lost, even if the computer cannot be fixed. But, I've got November's pics that will be lost. I back up each month's pictures at the end of each month, and since it's the 27th... I've got 27 days of pics on that hard drive that may be gone. Sad. If only it could have waited until the first of December. :) The other good news is that just last night I uploaded my favorite pics of all to kodakgallery and designed and ordered my Christmas cards for this year. Just last night - the last thing I did before logging off and shutting it down. Phew.

I'll be in touch when my computer is fixed, when I'm feeling better, and can do the happy dance for you all.

SMOOOOOOCH!
