Braces Removal Day, Endless Driving, and Computer Disappointment

Day 3 of NaBloPoMo. I have no real topic to focus on.

Today, Vampire Boy had his bottom braces removed. My first born has morphed from the darling baby he was into a charming young man.  Coming from a person who told her mother that her grandchildren would be four-legged fur faces, that says a lot.  Vampire Boy wasn’t that impressed about having the braces removed as he needs to wear a lower retainer 24/7 for a year, followed by nighttime wear for the second year.  He now has a more beautiful smile and is truly growing into a handsome young adult.

I feel like I spent most of my afternoon/evening in my car. I left work early to pick him up a theater practice (he’s on stage crew and they’re practicing for next week’s performance). After dropping him at the orthodontist’s office, I headed over to the Middle School to pick up Social Diva from Homework Club. Since I was early, I returned my (severely) past-due library books (got the fines reduced to $10 each). After running Social Diva over to her dad’s, I head back to the orthodontist’s office to pick up Vampire Boy and review the instructions with the orthodontist.  It’s back in the car to take VB back to the school to finish out the rehearsal.  I’m half-way home and I get a text “please come back, we’re done.” [Sigh]  I head back over to pick him up and transport him to dad’s.

I was anxious to get home because my Vista CD finally arrived. For those who don’t follow me on Facebook or Twitter, my computer died on Sunday. After spending days researching how to recover my files, I was anxious to sit down and try recovery again. Unfortunately, I don’t know enough about recovery to use the CDs without completely wiping out my system.  I’m back to Square One.  I don’t mind doing a factory reset, but I am anxious about recovering the documents, files, and photos from my machine. They look like they’re still there. The challenge is going to be getting them transferred out.

The next two days are going to be crazy ones. I hope I can write something worth keeping your attention!
