Another disaster!

Just when I thought life was getting a little bit smoother for me I got zapped again. It seems that something caused a power surge at my house and I am thinking it was as storm that passed through on Monday night, courtesy of Hurricane Faye which has been lingering around too long.
So with the power surge came two, yes, not one, but TWO dead computers. The hubbys will not even do one single thing and my hard drive on my computer is totally gone. Its very sickening for me because I have not backed up any thing in the past year due to all the stuff that has been going on in my life. Now I deeply regret it. All of my pictures are gone from the past year.
I am filing a claim with my insurance company and hoping they will help us but after a $500 deductible it won't be alot. But one way or another I will have another computer by this week-end.
I truly keep asking myself why my luck is so bad lately. Has someone put a curse on me or what? Hubby keeps telling me that we will get by and that its not so bad and when I say "whats next?' he tells me to ssshhhhhhhhh. So I try not to say that.
So,,,I may not be around till the week-end. I am taking a vacation day on friday so I can have a nice long Labor day week-end,,,4 wonderful days off,,,yes, that is if nothing,,oopsss,,,promised not to say it,ha! So right now I just have online access at work or if I go next door to Moms house.
I miss You all!!!! And send me some rabbit foots or fourleaf clovers or something,,,PLEASE!!!!
Just Kidding!
Hugs!

I am so sorry, Bethie! I would be sick, too! I don't ever remember to back my computers up, so I would be lost!

Still don't have my laptop working with the wireless card. I planned on speaking with the support people again yesterday, my last day off, but I spent it in bed with some weird kind of stomach thing, severe pain, some throwing up. Managed to get better in time to come into work, but still hurting some.

Anyway, I say that about being sick because I got your lovely surprises yesterday, but didn't have time to blog or email you before now. LOVED all of them. The card was beautiful, as were the necklace and the bookmarks. Also, very sweet of you to send the extra bamboo tiles. I've never run across those before. I'll blog about it as soon as I get a chance, hopefully later on today.

Thanks again and I'm sending good thoughts your way.

Oh, no!! I would be completely lost without my computer!

Start right now concentrating on nothing but good stuff happening. Keep that image in your mind at all times....no more bad stuff.

Oh, you poor thing. I am SO sorry. Perhaps there's some amazing computer fixer who can retrieve at least something from your machine. I'm so glad you've put many wonderful photos on your blog, but I know if you're like me, for every one on the blog, there are ten that you didn't use.

I wish there was something I could do to help, but all I can is give you all the best wishes in the world for better things to happen.
Hugs...

Oh dear, I'm so sorry to hear about both your computers getting zapped! I will get busy backing up all my stuff because you just never know when something like that can happen. It would make me ill losing all my pictures!!! I do hope your insurance company comes through! We'll be here for you when you come back online on your new computer:-) xoxox

Beth, I can't believe this, I do understand how you must feel. It's that when it rains it pores thing. You can't just settle into a grove. I am so sorry you lost things from your computer. I know you are frustrated.
Don't walk under a ladder, and anything else that would give of bad carma. Hugs, Mary

Tooooo BAD!!! To be without a computer is difficult but the fussing with insurance companies is really not fun!! You'll be at it soon and have a wonderful new machine!!

I'm thinking still of going to Apple, but I just hate to do that! Still, I might. Won't help in a power surge of course!

Forehead smacking time! So sorry Beth. Will the challenges ever end? You have had a few too many whirlwinds in your life lately. I pray things let up a bit (and more than a bit) for you.

Manic mojo coming your way!
