laptop crash

Well, my laptop crashed yesterday. i swear i hate that thing! it runs on Vista which has been nothing but a pain in my butt. i think we are ordering a new computer for downstairs (with XP) and i'll take the old tower to my studio. "Dell" is calling me back on Monday as we are going to have to do a system restore, but i have to spend the evening backing up all my pictures and documents. fun fun!
tomorrow i am driving to Summit, NJ to take a class with Lisa Kettel. we are making a pop up book and it involves dolls; so sounds fun to me! gotta go find out how to get there as i am sure i will have to leave early.
that's my news!
