You know there are moments in time when you wish you could go backwards just 30 seconds? Tonight was one of those moments as I watched my external hard drive get knocked to the floor by my son, breaking apart and not working anymore. It was one of those slow motion moments as I saw the box sliding across the table (he got his foot caught in the wire) and you hear yourself shouting "NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO". Yes that was me 30 minutes ago.
Lets see what do I have on my hard drive:-
About 100 GB worth of photos - yes 100 GB - every single photo I have taken since 2004 including all the commercial photos.
All the movies of the kids
20 GB of Digital Scrapbooking stuff
Artwork from various projects
Pretty much my whole life for the last 5 years.
You know when you either think I am going to harm my child or cry? Cry its better for both of you.
You know when you are in the middle of a project and you are using your hard drive not your computer to save it, because you want to keep a back up - that was my back up.
You know when you think you are going to throw up - thats me right now - UGH!
