A Sad Story to Tell

The weirdest thing happened when I was in DC with my family. We were at the Library of Congress when I was taking numerous pictures of the building and all the fancy pictures. I wanted to see what the last few I had taken looked like so I flip the switch to look at the pictures and realized that something had gone terribly wrong, it was only showing four pictures of the Library of Congress. I thought to myself, that can't be right. I knew I had taken more. I looked at the next group of pictures before those and it was showing pictures that Travis and I had taken at an end-of-the-year BBQ with his friends in school back from the very beginning of May! That was definitely not right because since then we have taken pictures of, our move, our trip to NY, a wedding in MN, and all the pictures that I had taken thus far in PA with my family. But they weren't there. How odd. I start having a mini panic attack as I'm telling this to my older sister, Rebecca who is standing right next to me. I turn my camera off, turn it on, take another picutre, go to check it out, and I find out the group of pictures from that BBQ I just told you about were gone! Magically disappeared! I couldn't believe it. All of my memories....gone. How sad. I start to panic but then realize that deep down inside of me somewhere I'm smart because generally after a vacation or after we take a big group of pictures I upload them on my computer (mostly because I have nothing else to do with my time though). So I remember that I have our move and our trip to NY on my computer. *PHEW!* I am a little bit relieved. But then I remember about the wedding. The wedding!! Travis' older sister, Trisha, got married just last week and I have no pictures to share with you or with anyone. Trisha looked gorgeous! I took pictures of the St. Paul Temple, the reception, me and Travis, the whole wedding party, and the whole family! Gone! I have emailed my wonderful sister-in-laws to send me what they have because I need to have something from that memoriable day. And then I start to think of where my family and I have been and the pictures that I have taken...I start to remember and then I think-lost! They are lost. I'm not gonna lie, I cried a little bit. I was so sad to lose those pictures, those memories that it broke my heart. Luckily I wasn't the only one with a camera on that vacation.
So there are no pictures with this post because they have all mysteriously vanished somewhere in my memory card, I have no idea how. It really is the oddest thing. My brother-in-law is a wiz with anything relating to a computer so he took my memory card home with him and hopefully he can work his magic so I can those pictures back and a happy story to tell. But until then, a new memory card should do the trick. Travis and I already went out and bought a new one. I am so nervous to lose pictures now. So this is a reminder to everyone, if you don't do this already-when you go on a vacation or take a big group of pictures, upload them on your computer and then save them somewhere else or you could possibly lose your pictures, and then you will broken hearted! And that's all I have to say about that.

I know exactly how you feel, only our pictures were on the computer and the computer died. We couldn't get it to turn back on or anything. ALL the pictures from Jer and me dating, getting engaged, the first part of our marriage.....gone because the computer died. Sometimes I hate how much we rely on technology these days!! Long story short, we bought an external hard drive, and a few months after the computer died, Jer was able to get it on for a little while and we were able to save the pictures. I hope you can get the lost pictures back! Good luck!

Oh poop! How crappy --especially since they were important pictures. I can understand why you'd cry. I would too. Hopefully your bro-in-law will come through, and if not, hopefully everyone will share theirs. And, ya know, the memories won't ever really be lost.
