I had a pretty disastrous week last week, what with having to un-friend/de-friend (whatever) my sister off my FB account and deal with a soggy basement. There was, however, one shining moment. Thank you all for your support and PMís as I tried to get my head around things.
The fallout from un-friending my sister seems moot. No emails. No threatening text messages. Nothing from the other sibs as to what was going on. Sheís pretty poisonous so I was expecting some sort of fall out. Perhaps that shoe hasnít fallen yet.
Iím fairly certain her husband un-friended me but I canít really tell because I donít remember friending him in the first place. I was sure sheíd have her kids do the same to me, but so far, so good. I guess cuz sheíd have to explain why it would be necessary to un-friend their favorite auntie. I didnít realize it at the time, but I did the un-friending on ďNational Siblingís Appreciation DayĒ so I guess thatíll have to be my bad forever.
The basement issue turned out better than expected. My new computer seems fine although it looks like I may have problems with the old one as I couldnít get it to boot up. I may have to disassemble the hard drive and send it to my computer whiz nephew. Itís so old it doesnít have USB ports if that tells you anything.
I lost some books and photos, but luckily I always get a CD of those I develop, so I should be good to go there. I found one of AJís baby pix damaged but my brother is a Photoshop whiz, so Iím hoping heíll be able to restore it. The books were all from college/MBA program, so as much as I wanted to keep them (only God knows why), it looks like theyíll have to go as I noticed mold growing on some of the pages already even though I had them out and drying for a couple of days. Some packed clothes were also wet so there was a bit of a laundry fest. I spent the weekend salvaging and repackaging things and plan to move all of them out to my storage unit at the end of the month. Here I thought these things would be safest with me. Now, not so much.
The bright star of the week was I had a very good phone interview on Wednesday evening for a position that would be a game changer for me (financially and career-wise). I was told Iíd make the next step in the interviewing process but still havenít heard anything, so any prayers, good thoughts to MOJO you could throw my way would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again, peeps. I really appreciate your support!

Glad your worst fears weren't realized and your losses seem recoverable or not too big an issue. Hope you are able to get back your computer files and fix AJ's baby pic. Must be a huge weight lifted from you.
Hope all turns out well in FB land.
And glad you had good job news. Mojo coming your way.
