Now I know why I had so much trouble getting this blog started. My laptop’s hard drive has crashed! The cost of a new hard drive,restoring my files (fortunately, everything I needed was already backed up!) and buying the software is the same as getting a new computer. Not in the budget. Now I am using an ancient laptop that will have to come along on our trip with us instead. At least it is nice and small. We’ll wait for December to make a new purchase, because for now all of our resources are going to travel. Grrr…timing is everything! Will go back to packing now.
