...but I am making lemonade!
Last Friday, unexpectedly, my computer of 4 years died. Apple could not recover the data and so it has been a big week of re-building, figuring out what has been lost (I had archived most of my work up until about 3 weeks ago, and unfortunately did not back up my new website! Argh!), and re-loading and updating apps. Thankfully, though, I had been working on my website and so all of the flattened files were still with my ISP, and so I have since been able to recover the files and at least have them as templates to work from.
It makes me wonder what has been lost forever,
and it has been a process this week trying to make peace with it.
Funny how very attached we can become to technology, files, email, and data.
The good news is that since there was no recovery possible,
I decided it was time to upgrade, and so I have a wonderful new MacBook Pro.
I am truly enjoying all that this new machine has to offer,
and best of all, it is FAST! : )
It was a really hard lesson, but the silver lining is that I "cleaned house" and am back at square one to create again. If you all have backup capability, I highly recommend backing up all of your precious files.
Off to make some lemonade now. : )
