part 2

so there probably won't be a part 2. here's what has happened:

*computer started acting weird. slow. took forever to load. error messages.
*gut feeling = back up your thousands of pictures.
*took 5 hours and 18 discs. backed up pictures.
*computer began a slow painful death.
*the blue screen of death became a frequent visitor.
*i panicked and began trying to get any critical files off the dying machine.
*email was the only option.
*began emailing myself files. a few at a time until the blue screen made it's appearance.
*waited for hours before attempting file retrieval again.
*this went on for almost a week.
*checked email a few times at mom's.
*lived a computer-less life.
*wondered how to plan primary sharing time without my technology. asked mom.
*construction paper and markers.
*used her computer instead.
*finally had mr. computer guy come last night.
*result = rebuilt computer that works like new.

ahhhh.
