Written by Mary Holzrichter

Gosh, it's quiet here inrepparttar family room. The tick tocking ofrepparttar 132072 mantel clock is actually loud! Weird.

Why do I loverepparttar 132073 internet so much? Sometimes I wish I'd never logged on that first time! Days like this! Days when that darn piece of *junk* crashes.

No, that's not true. When I get back that piece of *utter magic*, I'll thank my lucky stars!

I'm hopelessly addicted torepparttar 132074 internet. Admit it! I've learned so much and have met so many wonderful people. Oh, I fully realize I've got so much more to learn. Like BACKING UP my files. Like doing it on a REGULAR basis.

I'm getting tired. Think I'll put my coat on and step outside ontorepparttar 132075 deck.

It's snowing! There's no wind. *Charlie Brown* snowflakes! Huge ones coming straight down. Tree limbs and evergreens are cloaked with several inches ofrepparttar 132076 stuff!

Even more quiet out here. All I hear isrepparttar 132077 high tone in my ears one only notices in total silence. So peaceful. Whiteness all around me and darkness inrepparttar 132078 distance.

Finally at peace and exhausted, I slip back into bed. Life will go on without my computer, I tell myself.

"BUT from now on, I WILL DO A BACK UP every day"!
