well, my laptop aka: Yoko-san took a turn for the most unexpected this morning: moniter failure.
i'm 99% positive i was able to save my word document and blog entry i was working on at the time before she threw in both towels. i'll be bringing it by BestBuy tomorrow (thank you 3 year policy) to have it looked at and fixed. hopefully i will only be sans laptop for a week max.
i'll try n update/post as much as i can inbetween, but expect a major backlog catch-up when i have my baby back again. in the meantime, i appreciate everyone's patience and understanding, myself included.
