Yes, it has been many months since my last entry. Partially my fault, but actually I was having some technical difficulties. This is what happened. One day, my computer was working. The next day, it would not boot up. Instead I was tortured by a grey screen that would eventually power off to black. So that was great. But seriously, not really. Naturally, I freaked out because [of course] I committed the ultimate "no no". Nothing on my computer was backed up. I should know better. After all, I did work at tech support once upon a time in college. Plus, I have a history of owing computers that fail at all the wrong times. The old notes and assignments from dental hygiene school I could definitely do without. But the thought of losing all my pictures and videos of my dear Cooper was the absolute worst. Honestly, I cried. I would think about it and cry. It was v bad.
My first instinct was to call Apple support. They led me through a series of steps, in which they concluded there was something wrong with my hard drive. I was then instructed to schedule an appointment at the Genius Bar. Guy at the Genius Bar confirmed that my hard drive was indeed the problem. Because Apple does not do data recovery, they suggested I first see a third party business to take care of that before replacing my hard drive.
Well, it's a good thing I know smart people who could help me instead. Long story [kind of] short, everything is now backed up on an external hard drive, my computer's hard drive is wiped clean and updated with new software, and all is right with the world again.
So, here I am. You have missed out on a lot of good food, adventures [mostly Warriors basketball games] and puppy playdates [with the new pup in my life, Bella]. I hope to catch you up or possibly just pick up from where I left off. But, most importantly, I am back and alive and life is great.
