I thought there couldn't be anything sadder than the sight of a slightly (ahem) mature, chubby lady crawling around on the floor; ripping her knuckles a new one, all the while pulling up old carpet tacking and muttering to herself..."I am a girl...dadgummit...I am a girl!"
Maybe the sight of a shall remain
clueless nameless slightly (ahem) mature coupla chubbies lassoing the old carpet and tying it to the back of a pickup to drag it outta the house is funnier...but not sadder.
Y'all...it was one for the record books! Me in the driver's seat, heading that raggedy rug to the brush pile and Cat Daddy doing the heeling! That's rodeo talk y'all for we're lazy, old and too stoved up to carry it.
No y'all. Sadder was my face when I sat down to post about our monkeyshine adventure in DIY'ing and seeing that Blogger had disabled my blog!
My first thought was really...ya gotta be kidding me?
My second thought was gone...all my words gone.
I was beside myself. I took the necessary steps to try and restore, but after reading the Help section, I had a sinking feeling I might not get it back.
Three years of posts...words I would never be able to rewrite...Bella's story...Cat Daddy tall tales...gone. Comments I could never reread when I was feeling blue or lost or hurt...gone. My sidebar with all the wonderful folks I have met...all gone, leaving me with a hole in my heart and a colorless world of black and white.
The photos I wasn't worried about. Those were stored in my own folders and not just in Picasa, but again...the words...the tears...the love...gone.
(BTW...thank you Anne for your sweet post. I'm betting you wish you hadn't picked a disabled blog! Oh...and if you see any misspelled words...spellcheck ain't working this morning either...grr!)
Thankfully...this morning all was right again. I received an e-mail my account had been restored and an apology for the inconvenience it had caused me.
Inconvenience...really? This wasn't an inconvenience. An inconvenience is all my dining room stuff piled in every room of the house. This was just a heap of frustration and one sleepless night.
It's not that I'm addicted to blogging (she says with her tongue in her cheek), only that there are posts I want my Trashettes to have. You better believe this old gal when she says (with no tongue in cheek) I will be printing out certain posts with comments to begin scrapbooks for them and I will be backing everything up on hard drive.
Oh Roby...have I got a project for you!
This old heart just couldn't take going through that again!
Bella's photo was taken by photographer extraordinaire, Melissa at Foto Fabulous. If you are in need of a superb people-person and are in the DFW area...Melissa is your gal! Give her a call and you can thank me later.
Ahhh...it feels good to have color back in my world again!
