Because trust me, trust me, you have more valuables on your computer than you think. And if you’re a photographer you probably have actions and templates and such that the nice people you bought them from are not going to just GIVE to you(except Tina Parker of mylilcreations-the brilliant artist who makes my card templates– she offered to resend me every file. Love her.).
Oh my, I am behind, aren’t I?
Erik complained last night that I haven’t put up Easter photos or our trip to Zion’s National Park or Mary’s first haircut or ANYTHING to entertain him while he’s at work.
Hmm…. might be because my harddrive FAILED, was ERASED and had to be taken in twice just to come back clean and empty.
So here’s my soapbox of the day: BACK UP your files. Please! Do it for me, do it for your sanity, do it for your children and their valuable little school papers.
A few good places:
Amazon.com has about a jillion. Just do it.
Still, while it’s a pain reloading my iTunes and finding passwords and reinstalling all my software, I’m not feeling sorry for myself in the least. My photos were all saved, most of my writing exists in cyberspace(or needs to be trashed anyway) and a fresh start is always a good thing. Besides the kindness of Tina Parker (why yes, I am trying to promote her website), my neighbor is trying to recover my harddrive and my dad just happened to be in town and visiting for dinner when I had to take my computer in the second time. He saved the day in more ways than one. Thanks Dad.
And, and it’s impossible to be anything but joyful when Spring is emerging on every corner.
So, while I finish loading Photoshop and all that, I’ll leave you with this final thought:
Cookie magazine just suggested that rompers, yes, rompers are the fashion must-have for all mother’s this spring:
OK, I live in Utah. I know A LOT of beautiful moms. But I honestly can’t think of one(not even the gorgeous, couldn’t weigh 100 lbs. if she tried, Claudia) who should wear this in public.
