death in the duarte household

ok, so maybe the title of this post is a little extreme for what i'm going to say next...MY COMPUTER IS DEAD! this wouldn't be such a big deal, i mean we have a newer laptop for me to move onto, but of course I BACKED UP ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!! On Saturday night when we came home from our "all sports saturday" i was so ready to post about abe's swim meet, syd's soccer tournament, and surprise mike with a father's day post, but my computer crashed and when i started it up again there was nothing but a black screen. we've been running a high-tech diagnostic program to try and salvage some data. we've been running it since yesterday afternoon and it's only 75% done with a lot of unrecoverable areas. things are looking pretty bleak. i guess what i'm saying is that this is a sad, sad day in the duarte household. the loss is HUGE (family pictures, art class curriculum, emails, address, and so much more). if you see me dressed in mourning for the next month i'm sure you'll understand. your condolences are greatly appreciated!

Oh Jill! That totally sucks! I wish I could do something to help you! I haven't backed up anything either...maybe I better do that! How do you do that? I am so not computer savy.
