Hello, my sweet friends….
Things are very sad at the Bee and Rose today….
We had a disaster of EPIC proportions here yesterday (Tuesday) and I am still trying to recover!
At approx. 3:00 pm MST, my precious laptop, my son’s best friend XB360, and my husband’s mistress, Big Flat Screen TV were all critically injured in a malicious power surge.
Yep, you heard me….MY COMPUTER CRASHED, XB360 BIT IT AND THE FLAT SCREEN TV DIED!!! Apparently, my new friend, Migraine, was just the beginning of my huge SUCKFEST!
I immediately got these out and started waving them around…
Some of you may remember these little friends of mine…
Fortunately, the AWESOME folks at Microsoft helped us to bring XB360 back to life…THANK GOD! Tween Caveboy nearly had a stroke at age 12!
The jury is still out on my husband’s mistress, Flat Screen TV. We are searching for a specialist to help her. I know he’s ready to ditch her for a new, younger (larger) model, but tough cookies, Chilly!
The worst news of all….My precious….the laptop….is in critical condition at the intensive care unit with these folks….
Those poor fellows felt so darn sorry for me that they promised to help her recover in 3 days. I cried, “well, that’s like 30 years in blog years!” They said, “that’s the best we can do, ma’am.” Heavy sigh….and ugly crying…..”You don’t understand! I am having a MONSTER giveaway on my blog!” They just stared at me with pity and nodded. I’m sure they were whispering about me when I left…. So I left my sweet laptop with Milt and George who promised to try and recover my 5486 photos (no joke) and all of my iTunes downloads by Friday.
(My daughter’s 6th birthday photos and Irish dance photos were on there and not backed up…I know..I know…I just hadn’t gotten to the store to get a flash drive….Believe me…I have learned my lesson! I mentally beat the crap out of myself all day today!)
Needless to say, I will not be able to comment or visit blogs very much at all for the next few days…..I AM SO SORRY!!!! I hope you will still come by and join in the giveaway fun! I am going to try and check in via my husband’s phone and use my parent’s computer when I can. Please know that I am just SICK over this and really do want to spread my comment love around blogland.
I am going to schedule a few posts while I’m here at my parent’s house so just pretend I’m still here! I love, loVE, LOVE all of you and really feel awful about this whole nightmare!
Thank you all for your very kind understanding and support!
