I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday and for those of you daring enough to risk the crowds today (I am not), good luck!
I haven't written in a while because of a really bad week last week. It started on Monday when I spilled an entire cup of coffee on my computer - the one place I had my entire novel stored. Yes, I cried like a baby. After desperately calling for a substitute teacher - to no avail, I hauled my miserable self to school. I felt like everything I had worked for had been lost. It hurt like hell.
What did I learn from this? Backup hard drives are a necessity.
The good news is that my wonderful husband spent much of his time off last week visiting computer repair stores and ordering me a new computer. They were able to save my hard drive - THANK GOD! And my new computer didn't arrive until this week. Yesterday, my husband and I were finally able to get the new computer up and running, complete with all of my old documents, pictures, and music.
So, please, excuse my absence. I'm back - with my new hard drive on standby.
Have a good one, everyone!
