Just to let everyone know...
Kara is doing fine and is back to her own bossy self!
What a difference a week makes.
On the downside, my computer is still down but I haven't really bothered to try to fix it this week. I think I'll chat with a few people over the weekend and next week, when I'm working evenings, I'll take some time during the days to see if I can get it either up and running or at least salvage my pictures!
