Black Cloud

Not happy.  My computer fell off the table where it was charging and died.  We're traveling so I don't have access to my backup hard drives.  Also, my iPad was plugged into the computer when it fell so the iPad is compromised too.

That is the tip of the iceberg though.

The first Christmas without Dad is being more challenging than I though it would be (for me at least) so I'm in a crappy mood to begin with.

Hey - at least the weather's nice, the company's good, The food is good, Fay is healthy, I have a home to go back to, I have back ups for most of my files, my novel is safe and overall I'm in good shape.

There's light around the edge of this black cloud.  Now I need a good wind to blow the damned thing away.

Hugs to you. I hope you're able to get everything repaired/replaced.

Thanks Hope. I have been thinking about your back-up blog post this whole time. I'm decent about backing things up but I wish I'd done it before we left!

I'm so glad to hear that you had your novel backed-up. But, the rest - well, it just sucks. There's no point in candy-coating a poo-parade (unless of course you are Cartman).
