My baby died :o(

I'm VERY sad to report that my baby died. Yes, my brand new computer is DEAD!! I have been doing a LOT of work getting things ready for preschool, VBS, and other things...
On Friday, Hubby asked if I had backed up my puter lately...um, no...haven't done it at all. He got it started backing up, I finished it off. THANK YOU, GOD (and Hubby for the suggestion!). Last evening, I was checking on some things and started hearing a clicking coming from the computer. I wondered what the CD-rom drive was doing. Nothing was in it...besides, the clicking was coming from the OTHER side, um, just where the hard drive is. THAT"S NOT GOOD! Yup, about 2 minutes later I got the blue screen of death, then NOTHING. A message popped up that said there was nothing to boot. NOTHING TO BOOT! ARRGGHH!! Hubby, the computer genius that he is, got it to run some sort of diagnostic which gave an error code. I looked it up on our home computer and it said the hard drive is shot. I was able to get a hold of someone at Dell tech support at 10:00 last night. They said that with that error code, a new hard drive would arrive this week. Thank goodness for warranties!!
So, I will probably not be around much this week, until my new hard drive arrives...I've become very spoiled with my new laptop, I HATE sitting at the desk to do computer stuff, so I probably won't be around much.

Plus, I get to go see my family this week! My parents are even throwing an impromptu birthday party for Abbigail, so hopefully I'll get to see a lot of those cousins and aunts/uncles that I have been missing for the past few YEARS!! Please, if you're my family reading this, come see me! I miss you all!!!!

Have a GREAT week!
Blessings-A

I knew any sad face with a bubble nose could only mean it was a DIFFERENT baby than a REAL baby! But it took my breath until I GOT to the face at the end. Stinker.

Hope you have a good time with your family!
