Earlier this week, our computer started having some issues. My husband decided to back up everything onto the external hard drive and clean up the computer. Well, the computer is now working. BUT....not everything was saved. As in, all my lists and folders of websites for homeschool, knitting, blogs, Church, etc. all gone! We have an Itunes account and my playlist and the kid's playlist no longer exist. Plus lots of music is gone too. I realize that in the grand scheme of things this is not even a blip on the radar.

Yet, I feel so lost!

I think about the time it will take to find and organize all my websites and I don't think there is enough coffee available to help me through this.


  1. do you remember when I went that whole lice thing? Our computer crashed and the same thing happened to me!!! I was without a computer for what seemed forever!!

    We lost everything, except our pictures, thank God. That would have been tragic to lose all our memories. Hope you didn't lose any pictures.

    You can get through it. Take your time, only find the things you NEED to find, and slowly you will be back to where you were with what you have.

  2. Been there. We lost a TON of iTunes stuff which means buying it over again or not having it anymore. My husband is not fond of Apple for this--okay, for several reasons.

    Meanwhile, don't try to think about the time that it will take to get everything back. Babysteps! God will give you the graces that you need to get through this hour at a time.

    (And trust me, I use those graces! :)

  3. Our Mac has a "Time Machine" function which backs everything up every hour -- automatically onto an external hard drive. It is wonderful to know everything is there if I lose it, for just the cost of an external hard drive.

    Sorry that happened to you! Computers are great, when they work just the way we want them to! :-)

  4. OH man. I need to get on it. I have over a years worth of pictures on my laptop. I've been meaning to make my favorites into a blurb photo book before my laptop dies. Sigh. Sorry to hear about your stuff. Such a bummer.
