I did it! And I feel so stupid . . . Ugh!!  The thought makes me sick to my stomach . . . Remember my laptop's hard drive was failing?  Well the whole hard drive had to be replaced.  

Foolishly I had neglected to make copies of my photos 'cuz I was so certain I had already saved most of my photos onto an external hard drive.  But I hadn't.  And I had forgotten that they were no longer on my old laptop.  So  **gasp**  they're gone!

Thanks heavens for Facebook.  I found some nice albums there.  And hubby was eventually able to find some old disks with photos.  Now I'm only missing a few from 2007 to 2010 (where initially I thought everything from 2000 to 2011 was gone).  Yay, the baby photos are safe (and thankfully I had scrapbooked some of them).

I've learned my lesson:  burn copies onto disk ALWAYS and PRINT the best ones to scrapbook (or put into photo albums).  This will be my new mission this summer . . . 

So forgive me if some of my crafting efforts shift from all things yarny and focus on all things paper.
