worrisome prognosis and a new class

The worrisome prognosis:

Yesterday I was hoping to scrap, but was having trouble with my photo printer. So I asked my dsil (the computer nerd) (hey, he builds computers!!) (that's pretty much a computer nerd) to take a look before they left...

His prognosis, start making hard copies of anything I don't want to lose.

We've known that my computer is getting 'bogged' down, its an older model and I have tons of pictures, my PSE6, and other programs that store pics, including the one with the photo printer. So, my pics are stored in at least 3 diff places within the computer.

We've also been talking about him building me a new one, geared esp for graphics and photos. Luckily, I've been making cd copies for a while. (I can make a cd of the digi scrapping elements, right?)

and a new class:

I signed up for Shimelle's My Freedom Class.

Today's prompt for blogging , Time and Travel.

Time, I don't wear a watch, I tell time off my cell phone. I used to be very precise with time. If I was supposed to be someplace at 6pm, I'd be there at 5:55pm. But after 24 years with Dh...I've become more casual about it. (I have learned that if you HAVE to be there at 6:pm...tell dh its at 5:30...just so we will be there around 6)

hmmmmm...I've always been a bit of a home body, no real interest in travel. But now that the kids are grown and out of the nest, I'm ready. This Oct is my cruise.
I've also found that lately, I've picked up the odd habit of taking pics of interesting bathrooms...I think it started with building the house....getting ideas and all. Off the top of my head, I can think of a bathroom in Napa, in Arizona..

Oh, speaking of 24 years with is my baby boy's 24th birthday..
Only 24, and speaking of travel. That boy has been to Japan, Iraq, Florida, Mississippi, (thru the Corps) Mexico, Texas, Idaho, Oregon, Indiana (personal travel)

But because of her European Semester, dd has us all beat.
in the U.S., she has been to Texas, Idaho, Oregon, New York, Massachusetts, Arizona..and she has also done a missions trip to Mexico.

You can use both our prompts in one sentence - you'll now have TIME to TRAVEL with the children grown up.

Hope you manage to save everything you need - really must get round to doing that too. Liked reading your musings on travel and time - sounds like you have a really well travelled family :)

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Love that photo!!! Fingers crossed you manage to get everything sorted with the PC.

I had the same problem with my old pc. Luckily I had been saving everything to disk, and dd built me a better pc to handle all my scrappy goodness!

Sorry to hear about the troubles with your computer. I know that feeling about all the photos on your computer. I have had the power source go bad on 2 computers. Hope everything works out. And happy travels. Have you guys tried It is a great place to post your travels, give tips and read others travel blogs.

Sorry to hear about your PC problems ... hope things get sorted and you dont lose anything.
Looking forward to following your blog through Shimelles class.

Oh, that's not good about your computer! I would definitely take his advice and start pulling things off before something terrible happens. I've run into a few ppl who have lost everything when their hard drives crashed. So sad!
