A Series of Unfortunate Events

We've had some technology troubles lately. First our camera broke at Kennedy's Birthday Party (Don't worry I had a friend take some pics I will try to get those up as soon as they get back into town from vacation). Next our DVD in our DVD/VCR combo broke....which has been the mostly devastating for Kennedy because now she has to do without Leapfrog's "ABC Letter Factory" video. Everyday she asks for it and everyday we have to explain to her that it's broke---I found out that it's really hard for a two year old to understand that, but hey, I guess it’s not too early to teach your kids that sometimes you have to do without! Not to long after that our computer befell an untimely unexpected death!!! I don’t get it!!! We had some power outage one night and the next morning I couldn’t get the computer to turn on. And yes, we do have a surge protector with battery power backup on it, however according to experts sometimes a computer can still get fried. We've had people come look at it but unfortunately there is just no resurrecting this thing. We lost a couple months of pics with the premature death of our computer since the last time we backed up was before Christmas. Jimmy has decided to build a computer so until we get that finished we are stuck using his old laptop---which I might add is really, REALLY slow when it comes to putting pictures on it. So until further notice I will not be blogging for a while---well at least not with pictures...I know some are saying that I don't keep up with it even though I had a working computer...but now that I can't really do it I want to....Aaahh such is life. So until further notice---we will be out of commission.
