Better than nothing November 30, 2009

Posted by Erin F. Wasinger in Being a mama, Kind of unreasonable.

January, May, October and some of November: These are the months Dave’s managed to save thus far from our old computer by rigging it up to a hard drive and begging it for forgiveness. It’s very unforgiving.

I think it’s punishing us for watching Bob Dylan’s Christmas video.

I can’t underestimate how heartbreaking that is — my photo situation, not the Dylan video (that’s beyond adjectives). Three-and-a-half months is about a quarter of all the memories of Alice’s second year, a fact not lost even on my math-challenged brain. My stomach, if it weren’t being propped up with a baby, would be hiding in my socks.

Not to mention the baddest of my Billy Joel collection is lost, along with my Christmas music amassed without discretion over many, many years.

All that’s left is random photos. Better than nothing, but … not all I wanted.
