New Computer and Getting OLD!

Well, my computer has finally been reborn! It took a while to get in the parts but it's finally back up and running. I have upgraded to Windows 7 which is a bit different from Windows XP, but nothing too crazy.  I am so happy to have my computer back.

My computer died at a really bad time.  There has been so much going on here in the Deep South! We passed Mardi Gras, Which involved many parades and the children's ball.  I did a few Senior Portrait Model Sessions (they are so much easier than kids), made a senior portrait flier, had a few deaths in the family and one very tragic accident with an old friend from high school, had a car accident that only involved me.  It's bad when Big Cowpoke has to say, "MOM!!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"   Yes, I am loosing brain cells by the day!!  It has been a super crazy week and a half. 

And on top of all of that, I am 30 today!!!! I can't believe it!! I always looked at other people who where 30 and just never really thought of myself as 30!! I know it's not "old" or anything, but I feel like time is passing way too quickly!!!  I feel like I was just 18 the other day.

Sorry I don't have any pictures right now.  All my pictures are in limbo.  They are on my old hard-drive and then I have some other pictures on two different flash drives, and some on an SD card.  I have taken about 1000 pictures in the last week!!! I have been practicing a lot of new techniques and I am loving it!!!!  I can't wait to show everyone!!

So glad you are back!!!! I have missed you! And happy 30!!!! I'm "suppose" to turn 35 in June, but thinking I'm going to SKIP it this year...that puts me a little too close to 40!

Stephanie said...

Glad you are back too! Can you turn your old HD into an external drive? That's what my hubby did when his hard drive took a crap.

Happy Birthday! Trust me. 30 isn't old.

Sorry to hear there's been a mix of bad news mixed in with the good. However I'm glad you sound alright after your accident. It happens.

Can't wait to read your updates!
FYI - lots of news on my front too!

Happy birthday! My husband's 50th is tomorrow. You two are exactly 20 years and one day apart.

Janette said...

Happy Birthday! You are amazing. Just keeping up with everything you are doing makes me wonder how you do it. Don't worry, thirty isn't so bad. I tried it a few years ago, and decided to move on!

I hope your family treats you right on your birthday!

Happy b-day! My honey just updated to windows 7 and it messed his 'puter all up... he is so sad he did it; has been 2 plus days of working to get it back running right... but then again he is a gamer and needs it to do all sorts of stuff i dont even know about!

Sydney said...

Happy birthday. Windows 7 is great so far.

Glad your computer is back up, it is a bummer when they don't work. Hope you had a fun day on your birthday.

Happy belated Birthday there hot momma!

Thirty? Life is just getting gooodddd now sista!;)

The Wife said...

Holy crap woman! Talk about a week! Glad you're back and in one piece. AND.....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

Thirty's not so bad, been in them for several years now. But I still have to really think when someone asks me how old I am, I always want to say 20 something cause that's how old I feel. The husband still tells people I'm 29. I told him he's gonna have to bump it up a few years cause people will know he's lying!

Happy happy birthday ! You have a great attitude. 30 was my hardest birthday...40 and 50 were a breeze.

Pony Girl said...

Happy birthday to you, birthday month sister! ;)
Sorry to hear that things have been so crazy...warm thoughts and prayers heading your way, hang in there!
Can't wait to see the portraits you've been taking, so exciting! I love seeing senior pictures!! I think the styles and props have come a long way since I got mine done, LOL!
Did you get my email?

Happy Late Birthday, cute cowgirl!! I hope your day was super awesome.

Sad hearing about all the deaths and the accident. So glad you're OK.

I'm 39 now!! How did that happen? I, too, was just eighteen!
