missing notes!


if you follow my posts regularly, you probably know about my freakish “electronic disorder”.  if not, you can read about it  here & here

just this week i blew out 2 light bulbs, which were both replaced less than 2 months ago, my tv remote decided to stop working for no apparent reason and the batteries in the dvd remote completely corroded. i can only get internet service in one small spot in my apartment – unless of course it’s raining or even just extremely humid, in which case i cannot connect at all.  i’m actually grateful to have tv / internet at all since i canceled all services with time warner cable on april 12th due to my current financial circumstances.  the cable guy felt sorry for me so he left me with hook up to the basic channels 2 – 13 (minus channel 12 for some reason).  i hook on to the one internet network in the building that isn’t locked and wake up in fear each day that the person who unknowingly shares it with me will move.  all of that, i can live with – but now my notes have vanished.

i have an ipad with a ‘notes app’ that syncs with the notes on my phone.  i use the note pad regularly to record everything.  it’s the record of my life.  this morning i opened my ipad notes and all pages were blank.  no notes. nada.  i rushed to my phone hoping for a back-up copy and found only blank pages there as well.

i’m wondering about the message here . . .
