Digging out...

I seem to have dug myself into quite a hole the past few months. In many aspects of my life if I'm honest, but the hole I am referring to tonight is my hard drive memory. Some of you may remember a few months ago when I lost my external hard drive. That was actually one in a line of many external hard drive failures I've had in the past couple of years. So I swore I was never going to go through the stress (and significant cost) of restoring another hard drive. (And yes, I do have things in multiple places and burn DVDs but I hadn't in a while... which is my own fault, but that took a back seat in recent months. I actually think that everything on my last external drive is backed up elsewhere, so I haven't restored that drive.. and probably won't,  until I find I am missing something.) Let's just say that was a wake-up call for me. Luckily, I have an awesome husband who jumped on that for me and set me up with an alternative solution or two. He immediately set me up with mozy, which I've been using for the past couple of months. Love it. Love, love, love it. He also set me up with amazon storage... but it took me a while to adapt to it. But when I realized I was down to 1.2 GB on my laptop and 7.4 GB on my desktop, I had to do something. So all day long I've been uploading files, copying files to be burned to DVD, and running mozy backups of the newly arranged files. And I've only just started. I think this will be ongoing for the next month or so until I can catch up (and sadly, I am not exaggerating). For the first time in weeks, I actually don't have a pit in my stomach thinking about this stuff! Just a very long list. And, for the first time in ages, I feel really good about my storage/backup solution. No hardware to worry about, all off-site, easy... aaaahhhh...

[For all my clients who read this blog... none of your stuff was involved. I am much more careful with those files!]

Since I don't think I say it enough... Thank you so much Doug, I am so very grateful for you and all that you do to solve the "stressors" of my life.

Unfortunately, this means I've had no real time to play with photos today... but I do have a couple of pics to share... all still pretty raw, meaning I haven't had time to tweak settings or play with filters... but still adorable! (In my completely unbiased opinion...)
