Devastation

I should be decking the halls and feeling the spirit of the holiday, but I can't stop crying.

Get ready for a really sad tale. Mothers, grab your Kleenex.

I was trying to free up space on my computer so I cut and pasted all of the Nuzman family pictures on to our external hard drive. Thinking I would back them up later to Jaren's desktop or to another hard drive or to something. Every picture we had taken, ever, from pre- Gunnar to present day was in that folder. Everything. You all know where this is going don't you? To make a long story short our external hard drive crashed (on Thanksgiving) and we lost everything. Gunnar's birth to present day pictures are gone. I am heartsick and I can't stop crying. Gone.
Go and back up all of your pictures of your children now. Back them up in three places. I would not wish the way I feel right now on anyone. It could be compared to drowning or watching your family drown and not being able to do anything about it.
We have tried to find them through software services and the geek squad at Best Buy, but even the world's best computer nerds are at a loss.
Why? Why did I make that choice?

I feel so sick and sad.

Christmas is canceled.

Tears. I cannot imagine the feeling, so I am just crying for you. I just burned some dvds of all of our pictures a few days ago because my computer is acting a little crazy lately. Oh, Kams... I'm so sad for you.

kams--
there has to be a way to get those pictures back... what you need to do is call the guys who investigated martha stewart and the enron dudes. they know how to find and recover everything. if that doesn't work, call jesus collect.

Kam! On my second trip to your blog I read this terrible post. I AM SO SORRY. Please tell me you have been able to recover them. I am going home and backing up my photos STAT. So so so so horrible.

Holy Cow. It must be something in the air. I've been down for five days and am on the net via a lap top. My mother board bid us adieu over the weekend with all of my data on the hard drive. I'm optimistic all of our pictures are salvagable. So sorry to hear about that Kam.
