it just seems lately i haven't been able to be a regular blogger at all. and i am going to continue to blame it on my laptop which is crashed and destroyed (sobbing!!!!). we have been able to save some of the hard drive and reload it with new programs/software - but it is like a foreign object to me - it has none of "my stuff" on it. when it crashed i lost EVERYTHING. i lost the last year's worth of pictures -- including trips, birthdays, josh's baptism, you name it - i lost it. so... i am asking you - if you have taken any pics of my kids over the last year - will you please get some copies of them for me ?? -- you can email them, put them on a cd or give me hard copies. i feel so sad about losing all that history - it breaks my heart. it is frustrating and i can't do anything about it.
with summer here, i have lightened my load quite a bit and i am going to focus on having fun with my kids and getting some projects done around the house. one of my projects is to begin working on my scrapbooks again -- i am so far behind and really want to get caught up!
hopefully, once i get my "new" laptop up and running i can download the pictures i have (of course this time backing them up somehow!) taken over the past several weeks and post them on my blog.
