Me, Myself & Irene

Okay.  I haven’t posted in a week.  Our computer is dead. The data was deemed not retrievable by Best Buy’s  Geek Squad.  All of our photos, videos, important documents, etc.

 *dramatic sigh*

I can’t NOT post because I feel guilty and I’m a bit addicted to it.  Blogging has become a real outlet for me.  Plus I feel out of the loop with all of my blog friends.  I  haven’t posted even with this 6″ notebook computer because it repeatedly deletes entire paragraphs without notice, it’s crazy hard to surf the net, and forget about loading pictures onto it.  I don’t want to write crappy posts, but that’s what comes of it when I try to on this thing. 


Please hang in there guys.  We are doing all that we could to try and get a new computer from Sony.  I refuse to pay for another computer since it crashed on its own less than 6 months in. 

In other FSL news, Hurricane Irene slammed CT.  My mom lived here with her cat and dog for 2 days. Casa FSL is in good condition still (except for a piece of siding that got ripped off of the house from the crazy wind).  The neighborhood that I grew up in (where my mom & dad’s house is), was completely flooded.

You’ve got to see this.  Click here to see my town’s devastation from the hurricane. The town beach was nonexistent!  The high tide & moon phase plus the hurricane completely sucked up the beach.  The entire section of town is under water.  Amazing.

While all of that was going on, I was hosting dinner party after dinner party!  We were one of the lucky households that didn’t lose power!  700,000 people lost electricity during this storm.  We had a great time in spite of the bad weather. 


Did you get hit by Irene?

  1. WOW! Was totally worrying about you guys since we hadn’t seen a post in a while, so I just kept reminding myself that you’re computer died and hoping that was the reason… then I saw a comment from you on my blog! 🙂 Happy day… can’t wait for you to get another computer!!! Keep safe and hope recovery for the town comes soon!

  2. hope everyone is ok there :s

  3. You and Anthony are the best host’s!! The food and lodging were 5 STAR !!! thanks again!! xoxoxoxoxo

  4. i am glad that you guys are OK!

  5. We haven’t had ANY rain here–and sadly, I found myself wishing Irene would come just a little to get some.

  6. Oh no that sucks, I hope you can fix it soon! Glad you’re safe from the storm, it sounds horrible!

  7. 700k without power? That just blows. Glad to hear you all are doing alright though! Except in the computer department that is….again….blows, especially since they cant retrieve the info.

  8. I second what Gloria said 🙂 Chin up, Mindy!! Keep blogging! i love your blog.

  9. There are some advantages to living in the middle of nowhere. 😛 Glad you all are ok!

    I was without high speed internet (I had my phone) for 2 1/2 days last week. I almost died. 😛 I feel your pain. Just tweet something nasty about Sony on twitter…that’s how I got my cable back!

  10. Wahh. I understand completely. I get edgy when I don’t have some sort of outlet. We left as soon as Irene hit southern VA and it didn’t do too much damage. I hear it did a lot in VT though gah. My brothers military school academy on Long Island was evacuated and he came to visit me so I am happy about Irene you could say. 😉

  11. Oh no! I’m so sorry! And here I thought I was having a bad week. Sure hope it all gets fixed up and your back online!

Let's talk it out
