hyperventilating

big electrical storm last night.
no computer at work today.
as in... NO! COMPUTER!
notice i did not say "no access to computer."
i have that.
what i DON'T have is access to the 500 gazillion photos i've (stupidly) uploaded onto my work computer and (stupidly) haven't backed up yet.

all of a sudden, i love my blog even more than i did yesterday...

My husband was just commenting on how nice it is with the blog that you can't lose the information that I have put on it so far...unless blogger crashes...can that happen?
Good luck!

Price Cream Parlor said...

OH MY! That is a good scare! Hope you recover!

April said...

This is my greatest fear.

And yet, I (stupidly)haven't backed up either.

Amy said...

Oh, Lelly! I'm hoping you can recover your pictures...sending happy thoughts..

melanie said...

Oh NO!! I always fear this will happen. But like April, I have no hard copies of anything. Stupid, stupid!! I hope it can all be recovered. Don't forget to breathe.

Kim Sue said...

at the top of my list is organizing and making a back up of all my pics, of course it has been on the list for quite a while now. hopefully yours will be there waiting on you when someone smarter than me helps you out with your computer!!

Jill said...

Oh, I'm sorry about this, what a stress and pain!

I take great comfort in knowing all my photos are backed up in my Smugmug account, that's a definite benefit to hosting all my stuff there.

Oh the humanity is right!

Rhonda said...

Oh, oh , ohhhh, I hope they come back home. I have been guilty of not backing up also. We actually started downloading ALL into Shutterfly AND Ofoto.com

Just in case.

So, have hope! They still may be somewhere hidden in all those files. Worse case....you have to pay big bucks to a 21 year old GEEK SQUAD boy to "find" them!!!

Jen said...

oh no!!! i hope you get them back!!! this is my worst nightmare- losing all my computerized "stuff"!

carlo said...

oh my goodness.

or should i say oh my BADNESS!!!!

(i need to do the same thing)

Alisa said...

This made me shudder.
And it reminded me that I have a new hard drive sitting next to my computer. NOT PLUGGED IN-
so close, but yet, so far away!
I do hope you are able to recover things

Holly said...

My heart just started beating a bit faster. Hope it's back now and all is right with the world.

I have a SmugMug account like Jill and that gives me a bit of peace of mind.

Natasha said...

Oh No!!! I hope someone can help!!!!!!

Lene said...

Oh I hope things work out.
I had my hard-drive crash last summer with all my pictures on it. I had to shell out the big buck to get them back.
The madding part -- I have an external hard drive now and still "forget" to back things up.

Chris said...

That is horrible. Sometimes having this kind of technology is bad. When we are dependent on it and it fails. We all have fear of that. I hope you can recover some or all of your pictures. Good luck

Barb said...

What? Surely there is some hope of recovery.
You know that you automatically have a Picasa Webalbum because of your blog where you can see all the photos you've ever uploaded to blogger all together. (Google -> My Account -> Picasa Webalbums)

Megan said...

Geez, thank goodness for the blog! Hope your computer comes back with the pics, if that's possible!

Amy said...

I keep waiting for some good recovery news????

annalisa said...

This just makes me sick. Not to mention anxious at the year's worth of photos I keep telling myself to get printed.

Redhoodoos said...

Still laughing at your comment on my blog. Anyone who talks baby talk to their cats is a soulmate of mine. ;)

michelle said...

oh man! I am behind on my backups as well... I hope you recover yours!
