Nowhere Land

So I haven't posted in a while. Guess why?? My life gets better every day, it's like a barrel of monkeys over here.

My laptop kicked the bucket! No idea why either, the screen flickered, flickered, and then died. At first I thought video processor overheat, or board malfunction. Which makes sense, but C took out my hard drive to recover all my files (since theoretically if it's just the video processor or the main board the hard drive would be unaffected) well it's fried too. And every single picture and video of Skyler is on there, and all the pictures and videos of N too. I have an external drive where some of my stuff is backed up, but it's only got the stuff from before Skyler was born. C is going to do everything he can to try to recover the files. But yeah I must admit I'm slightly freaked. I'm borrowing C's laptop for the moment.

And the other night my mom called me to bitch about her life. She barely asked how I was doing and I told her not so great my laptop died, so she says oh that sucks, and then launches into this long tirade about my brother and how he was so depressed the other day so she took him furniture shopping. And then she starts in on my dad and how evil he is. So I said something and she turned on me. Said I was on his side, and all this other random bs. I, having had a shitty day to begin with, burst into tears. So then she apologizes and says she's just stressed out because of my dad, and says she shouldn't be involving me in it, which I said no you shouldn't. I didn't want to talk about this. So she's sorry and whatever, but then immediately after, starts bitching about it again! I told her I had to go for supper and basically hung up.

Then I texted my dad and essentially told on her. Because I know he doesn't want me involved. He called me back and said not to listen to her and if she's having problems she knows his phone number and she should just call him. He said to just tell her that I'm not going to discuss it with her and then tell her to call my dad. It's just one thing after another. I'm ready to rip out my hair. And of course there is even more drama going on, but I don't feel like talking about it at the moment, nor do I have time since I have to leave for work.

I hope you all are doing much better than I am right now. Sigh.

I am so, so sorry! I know it's not the same as having the videos, but your pictures of Skyler that you posted on this blog are still there. I just checked and they're fine so at the very least you have a few baby pics left. Hopefully you can recover the rest.

Can I join you in Nowhere Land?!

I meant to comment earlier today. Due to a pukey baby, I am just now getting the chance.

Sorry to hear about your laptop kicking the bucket. I hope that C can recover your files. How devastating.

Don't you ever just feel like running away and hiding for a while? I do.

don't parents have friends that they can bitch and moan to? why do they burden us, esp sticking you in the middle of their problems!

That sucks. All of it. I'm so sorry you're dealing with all of this random crap on top of everything else you handle.

I hope your days have improved. That is indeed a crap day.
