We have two computers - one new (2 years old) and one old (8 years old). The new one has crashed and I have lost the last 7 years of my life. I am currently typing this on the old computer. All my private journals of the immigration limbo we went through; all my genealogy notes and certificates; my books, bibliography notes, book reviews etc; all my emails; all my pictures; all my history notes (and there were tons and tons of those); all the family photographs from both sides. ALL LOST. Even the employment contract for the new job I just started.
This is a disaster.
I have finished one book and will try and have a review up later today. And the last 2 days we have been stuck inside enduring a bitterly cold snowblizzard. There are 6 inches of snow on the ground in Toronto - and Ottawa has 50cm (20 inches) of snow. Now there is sunshine and snow outside.
The good news is that the new computer is now back up and running - with all my files gone - but hubby did have to stay up ALL night to fix it. And I do mean ALL NIGHT. He was working on it at 9 pm last night, when I went to bed, and he was still working on it when I got up at 8 this morning. Hubby has now gone to sleep.
