When things aren't going your way

Sometimes you just have to go bananas.

Yes, I just quoted the Fresh Beat Band. I realize that makes me kinda pathetic. But, I embrace it. Why not?

So, tonight I had every intention of posting a recipe for my chicken stirfry with white sauce. I love this recipe because it is basic. You can turn it into most anything you want. It doesn't require soy sauce, so no expensive gluten free alternatives are necessary. I had planned to write a witty story about my first experience having a gluten-free Chinese meal at a restaurant and being surrounded by tables covered with fresh sugar snap peas, but it was not to be.

I took the digital memory card out of the computer and was going to try and take a picture when the memory card wouldn't stay in the camera. The camera continued to spit the card back out at me, and I was getting really frustrated. I decided the camera was broken. I would have to blog later.

I sat down later to blog and realized that the memory card was also broken. It was permanently locked, and I can no longer access any of my files. I finally got it unlocked, but am still unable to read the files on my computer. Camera, dead. Memory card, dead. Status of the scads of pictures and videos of my kids on the memory card, unknown.

Are you kidding me?!?!?!

My weekend looks to be an expensive one, and I'm hoping in the next few days I have a happy report that at least some of my picture and video files were recovered. Would you join me in hoping for that? I had many lovely food pictures to share with you, but those can be easily recreated. I'm hoping to save the pictures of my kids at my grandmother's 80th birthday party, my daughter's first haircut, and countless other things that simply cannot be recreated.

So, for now, I will be going bananas, and will also be hoping that when I go to sleep I will no longer have that Fresh Beat Band song stuck in my head. Hopefully my blog hiatus will not be a long one, and hopefully my next post will be more cheerful!


  1. I will join you in hoping for a good outcome with your memory card! I would hate for that to happen! BIG Hugs!

  2. Thank you! You're such a great friend :) The husband is confident we will get the pics and videos back, but he's an optimist!
