Welp, it’s been a rough few weeks. Not overall, just in my “me.” I had some frustrations with my writing, I had some frustrations at home, I had some frustrations about the future, and then…
My external hard drive seized up on me.
It was just my backup, no real biggie. I re-backed-up (?) everything on various thumb drives I had floating around and then zipped the important stuff into emails. Whew! I’m covered.
But then I felt like I was missing something. Something not huge but still important. Something maybe not everyday but every-so-often. Something like… like…
Holy tights on a biscuit…
MY BLOG NOTES!
Oh. Em. Gee.
All my notes, my drafts, my images… trapped.
Holy sister’s diphthong!
Sweet Shostakovitch and a filibuster basket!
Okay, so in the grand scheme of things it’s really not a huge loss, but enough to throw me off (especially after a generally tumultuous few weeks). So, you’re getting this today (and a day late, no less). You’re getting Deidre Brand swearing, an apology, and a notice of my hiatus. Just a brief one! Like, March. I need a break to regroup.
Thanks for your understanding. I hope to be back to my blogging shenanigans soon. In the meantime, be kind to one another! You never know who just lost a hard drive. Suggestions:
- Hug someone (Chest to chest, full 20 seconds; know this person.)
- Pet a dog (Just ask first. No bites! …dogs don’t taste good.)
- Compliment a random stranger (Hair is a safe bet. Well, head hair.)
- And throw me a like maybe? (I’m feeling fragile.)
Thanks for reading.
[Can we also take a sec to appreciate my emojis? Because that second one…hahahaha!]
