one is the loneliest number
A week and a half ago I had a hard drive melt down that resulted in the wiping out of all my photos.
It's my own fault; I didn't back them up.
Lots of work later and I recovered 10,000 of the 50,000. Pretty good. Except that of the 10,000, most of them are multiples of the same files... so it's more like 1,000. 1,000 of 50,000.
The good news is that I have over 3,000 on Flickr. Thank goodness.
The bad news is that I am the slowest slowpoke in the world when it comes to bouncing back. Some little part of my subconscious has taken the photo loss personally and it's been hard to take photos and upload photos and even get excited about Flickr. Boo.
Baby steps to bouncing back. :)

In other news, my sister had a baby and there is now a new little niece in my life. And that, my friends is pretty great.
