and we're up and running again! Apparently my hard drive was developing blocks, and so the whole operating system crashed. Fortunately, my local computer guy was able to rescue all my data and install a new hard drive. He even put the Lappy back together again better than Toshiba did when they did repairs, so all my keyboard keys work and the DVR drive no longer rattles and vibrates. Hooray for computer mechanics!
So, I didn't lose any bookmarks or documents or photos. I just had to actually spend time with my husband and children and get stuff done for two weeks.
Wouldn't you know it, I finished a quilt while I was gone, put a zipper in a second hand jacket for Andrew (my first big zipper project) and almost finished a new diaper bag. Next on my list after that is refurbishing our change pads, making a stuff organizer for the wall, and making a bunch of storage bins. If I can get all that done before Baby #3 enters the scene, I will be ecstatic.
Baby #3 obviously doesn't understand how much work I have to do, because s/he insists on leaning against my spine, making my arms all tingly and clumsy. Ah, the things we undergo for the sake of our children.
