The next morning I paced the floors...eager for her return! Although everyone I talked to was sympathetic no one really understood. I heard alot of "Kristen, it's not the end of the world", or "Things could be alot worse" and I agreed....I began to question my state of mind. Were these feelings warranted? After all it IS just a laptop! But I couldn't brush it off...I felt sense of overwhelment as my blackberry chimed with new emails...new orders...and Blogger Love! "Dear God", I cried..."Why me??" what am I going to do? EVERYTHING'S GONE! Months and Months of work down the drain...shoot me, shoot me NOW!!! Ok, alil Diva-ish and dramatic but at that moment this situation was right up there w/cancer!
Then a knock at the door..."Good News", says neighbor! "I was able to save your embroidery designs, your emails and favorites! Bad News, The rest is corrupted and needs to be euthanized!" Ahhh...this is Good News!! The Cancer can be cured and although the recovery may take some time my BF will be surfing again soon!
Lesson Learned!! Just like my attempts to dodge cancer by not smoking or staying out of the sun . The way I obsess over cleaning mine and my daughters hands with antibacterial wipes to prevent the spread of germs...I will also back-up my best friend to insure her good health can be restored even after a "Brush of Virtual Death".
