If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t updated my blog in a long time, I have a very good reason why. Nearly 3 weeks ago, my hard drive crashed. Thankfully, my computer is new enough that it’s still under warranty, so I was promised that a new hard drive would be shipped out right away.
Well, long story short, things were not as easy as just replacing the hard drive. After some shipping mix-ups and delays, I am finally back up and running with internet access.
Thankfully, I was able to check my email at work, so it didn’t pile up during the 3 weeks I was without access at home. Now I begin the arduous task of reinstalling software, reestablishing “My Favorites”, and resetting my settings so that everything is where it should be.
I’m sure if I gave it some more time and thought, I could come up with a great spiritual lesson in the midst of all of this. Certainly I have learned that I can live without reading blogs every morning and checking my e-mail every night. But I am definitely grateful to have that access once again.
More importantly, I have learned how crucial it is to BACK UP my computer on a regular basis!
I’ll have to finish resetting everything over the weekend, but I think it’s safe to say, in the words of Frank Costanza: “I’m back, baby!”
