The Mac crisis has been survived. My photo archive lost it's filing structure, everything, nearly 70,000 photos are now back in chronological order, in folders by year and month. That will change how I search for old photos. But thanks to cloud back-ups everything appears to be intact. Just organized differently. And the once overflowing hard drive now is 95% empty. Big-Mac has still not found my external hard drive. Oh and blogger has lost spell-check. I didn't realize how dependent I am on my home computer, until it wasn't working for a few days.
We are as ready for Christmas as we are going to be. No pressure, no expectations, just relax and have fun. My office has two four day weekends back to back.
Having just returned from a major adventure, it will be a low key holiday. The two of us, some favorite foods, some relaxation.
I knew I would return to a bit of intense work, and I was thrown a few curve balls, a report I thought I was done with that I was asked to add several pages to, a couple of things that others should have handled that I had to do, and a contract that I relied on others to send the proper instructions for, that was messed up and had to be returned for changes because the instructions that were sent were wrong. I need to find the strength to survive another year of this silliness.
So enough of David-downer.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. There are competing holidays at this time of the year, the thing they call have in common is Hope, Love, Sharing, Being Good to Ourselves and Others. Acknowledging that we lucky and should share the Joy. Be good to one another, but most important be good to yourself. I most often close emails with Take Care, and I mean it, take care of yourself. If you don't, no one will, and if you don't you won't be here for us to LOVE.
I look forward to decades more of knowing all of you, of sharing our lives in the real and virtual worlds.
And a Happy Christmas to you both!ReplyDelete

p.s. I went through a similar Mac breakdown a month or two ago and I was surprised at some the things I lost. I just assumed that mail folders were stored in the cloud but they weren't so I lost all my mail folders. So far I haven't missed anything. The good part was that my newer Mac (the one that broke) and my old Mac are now talking to each other and keeping in sync. They didn't do that before. I keep the old Mac because I like the old photo system so much better than the new photo system. The filing system makes better sense.
Merry Christmas to you!Delete
