Well, not exactly lost it. But it seems like the hard drive is fried, so it's broken. And I'm completely heart-broken about it, as it's only a little bit over a year old. I have all my photos on that hard drive, photos from our wedding, photos of Gizmo and Hobbe, everything! Thomas has some of the photos on his computer too, but far from all of them. He's still trying to save it, he's trying about every trick he can think of, but he's not very hopeful. DAMN! Thankfully, Thomas has a Samsung Laptop that he currently isn't using (as he has a better computer for work), so I can use that for now. I really can't afford a new computer right now!
On a much happier note, yesterday I went and visited my friend Anna for a very impulse knit-and-wine evening. We were five girls who got together and just chatted, knitted and ate snacks the whole evening. I didn't have any wine as I was driving, and I actually managed to not knit a single stitch for the whole evening (everything I'm knitting right now has lots of charts, and I didn't have the concentration needed for that last night, so I just chatted and laughed the whole evening instead). It was so much fun to actually get to hang out with some friends again, I can hardly remember when I last felt well enough to do this! I really don't want to jinx anything, but it seems like most of the nausea and dizziness has disappeared. I can't tell you how good this feels! Hopefully it will last!
And I don't know if I've told you, but in a month I'm turning 30. I don't feel the least bit bad about it, but I've chosen not to have a big party or anything. Me and Thomas are going to have a weekend in Stockholm (the capital of Sweden), and the only thing I've wished for from my family is some shopping money, so I can go on a shopping spree while in Stockholm. I'm really looking forward to it!
Now I'm going to spend some time with Thomas (and knit on the birthday shawl)!
