30 Days of Thanks #2


I could go on and on and on about how much I love my hubby. He's wonderful, he's fun, he's very, very handsome, he's a good provider, he's a fabulous Daddy. Literally, I could go on and on. But today, I am more thankful for him than I have ever been.

So I have a neato new camera. It's really expensive. It's a lot cooler than I am. I don't even know how to use it correctly yet. It's nice. So I have been using it for a few months now and love how cute my kiddos look through the lens. I've been snapping away. Thom's birthday, our family photos, Christine's baby shower, my adorable boys, my birthday, you name it. Loves me some pictures.

I was at my mom's house last week and decided to put some of the pictures on her computer. So I plug 'er in and uh, nothing. No wait, not nothing. It was a folder with what I can only assume was a rare combination of alien and Chinese. It was not pretty and I had myself a minor heart attack right there. My other memory card seemed to work just fine, you know, the one without anything on it.

So I call Thom and tell him what's going on. He seemed kinda nonchalant about it, so my worries were cast aside...that is until I got home and he seemed a lot more upset about it. Come to find out, something very very bad went down with the stupid memory card and it got all sorts of scrambled and discombobulated. Needless to say, bye bye all my pictures. And the sadness ensued.

I cried a little and prayed a lot. And tried and tried to pretend I was in IT and knew what I was doing. I prayed some more and cried a little more. I was a sad girl.

So my hubby takes said card to work and takes it to his engineer friend. And I prayed. And he came home with a memory card restored to all it's glory. In fact, he had resurrected all the pictures that had ever been on the card! HAPPY DAY!

So I am thankful for my wonderful husband. And for miracles. And for technology...ever seen Napoleon Dynamite? "I love technology but not as much as you you see..."

Ha ha.
