{Take Cover}

Oh wow! I know, I know! It's been sooooo long since I've written anything in my blogaroo. Believe me. I've missed all of you as well. But you see, something happened with my laptop that I thought it will be immune to since I'm the only one who uses it.

Yep! You guessed right. VIRUS!!!

How did it happen? Well, my daughter borrowed my USB for school and silly me didn't think of scanning it for any infections first. BOOM! In a blink of an eye all my files were corrupted. Just imagine my reaction when I was told that my laptop had to be reformatted...tears*tears*tears. Why? Because very very silly me never ever took the time to make any back up files (and to think I even mentioned in my last post that hubby bought an external memory just for this purpose). Hayayay!

Here are the two lessons I learned in the 2nd week of the first month of the new year:
  1. Be diligent in backing up files (i.e. letters, documents, photos , et al.) no matter how tedious it may seem.
  2. Take proper precautions. No one is immune to and people alike.
I hope this never happens to any of you. Not only is it costly, but it can really try your patience as well.
