Okay, my dear readers, here's an update on my life right now:
Last week I mentioned having computer problems. The laptop I shared with some of my younger sisters had quit working and was in for diagnosis. Well, on Tuesday, the technician called to tell us the hard drive was fried and he couldn't retrieve anything from it.
I was crushed. We hadn't yet backed up that computer, so I lost two full years of work. Studying notes, all my web bookmarks, quite a bit of my writing, all of my June Crusade work on the Gemini; completely gone.
Thankfully, I do have hard copy notes for most of the writing I lost. And, let me tell you, I've never been more thankful to the Lord for giving me a good memory! Aided by it and my notes, I'm starting over. And, attempting to pick up the pieces of that part of my life.
When my Mom's new Macbook arrives in a couple weeks or so, she is giving me her old one, for which I am profoundly grateful. I've been wanting a laptop of my own and although I don't mind Windows, I prefer a Mac. So, yes, I'm looking forward to using it, but I wish it was under other circumstances. Honestly, if given the choice between a laptop of my own and having all that data back, I'd choose the data in a heartbeat! But, God knows best, and although I can't see much good in this situation right now or why he allowed this to happen, someday I hope to be able to look back and see His hand in it.
On a brighter note, I should soon be able to post regularly. I have lots of plans for posts and post series, some book reviews, more about my stories, and I hope to share some of my other interests with you!
