Oy Vey

I have gone through computer hell the last month and a half or so. I really shouldn't say that I have gone through it since I am currently still stuck in it. ACK!
Bad Luck? I almost feel like it has to be more than that, because, I mean SERIOUSLY?
For anyone who doesn't really know me or just doesn't pay attention, the computer is my job. I am a photographer and the majority of my work is done on the computer. There is also A LOT of valuable business information along with pictures from the photo sessions I take.

Fun stuff I have gone through the last 5 weeks or so...
-We had computer issues so we got a new one.
-Power surge- while on surge protectors resulting in loss of most of electronics including both computers. Luckily the computers were fixable.
-Memory cards failing me while in the middle of photo sessions- luckily I bring back up
-Right now dealing with my computer. Pretty sure the hard drive is physically damaged- resulting in loss of A LOT of pictures, and money for that matter. I do back up on external hard drive, but it stopped backing up in Oct for some reason. I MEAN SERIOUSLY?

We are still working on this matter. Day and night for the last week. We got close today and was able to recover a few pictures. None of them were ones that I needed (I lost pictures from Oct 2010 and on), but we are making progress and I am REALLY hoping we can resolve this and put all this crap behind us.

Anyway out of the few that were recovered we some pictures I haven't seen in a while, I thought I would share them on here. They are making me smile at a time that is pretty dark for me and my business. Enjoy :) It is going to be a long night, pretty sure I will be pulling an all nighter trying to deal with some of this mess! Wish me luck!
