Today is "Thankful Thursday"! My computer's motherboard died unexpectedly last Friday afternoon and I was going through a major meltdown for the next few days. You know ALL those thoughts that run through your mind...did I lose EVERYTHING (my svg files and pictures), can any of it be retrieved, will the data be compatible if I need a new computer...ALL those questions crossed my mind numerous times. The worst part is when it breaks on the weekend. That always seemed to happen to the kids when they were younger too...they would wait until the weekend to get sick when the regular doctor's office was closed. Have you every been there before?!?!
Then, a dear friend came to my rescue! I have a brand new computer now (super fast with LOTS of storage space), but she and a fellow co-worker saved my hard drive (we had an external hard drive too, but wasn't sure the last time it backed up). They installed it into my new computer and it appears that we have almost all our data (hubby was worried about his iTunes, but it looks like it is there too)! I am totally relieved and THANKFUL!
Before this major life crisis (yes, it seemed like it)...I was working on these simple watercolor Thank You cards for my students. I had a fabulous class this past school year and many were so generous. I am going to mail them a card to surprise them.
I used our class colors...yellow, green, black, and polka dots. The stamped sentiment is by Bo Bunny and the enamel dots are from Michaels.
I may need a few more, but now that my mind can focus again it will not take long to whip up a few more. I better get busy so I can get them in the mail!
Special Note: Be sure to check your external hard drive regularly so you don't have a major meltdown. I have heard from a few others who have said their computers have crashed recently. Unfortunately technology doesn't last forever!
Thanks again my Dear Friend and Students!
Be sure to come back tomorrow for my 3 Girl JAM daily post.
