Yesterday we took Lizzzie, our Intrepid, in for some brake work. We anticipated that she needed new brake pads or something along those lines and that it would cost about $100 - probably less. $500+ later, she is doing much better - but our wallets are not. Such is life.
The worst news, however, is what happened when I came down to my computer this morning to try to work on my 'Funny Farm' game. It's been going great - several squares completed, several almost completed, only 3 more squares to attempt to find my way into.
And Windows caused my computer to automatically shut down because it got a new update that 'required' it. No warning, no chance to save, nothing.
My game is basically gone. I attempted to locate it through history, and every other method that I can think of, but it's simply no use. It's almost 100% gone.
I'm sad. But I am NOT giving up.
