Did you every have a moment were you truly thought you were going insane? Maybe you swear you had a conversation with someone and came to a decision only to find weeks later that the person doesn’t remember or thought a different conclusion was made. Or sometimes just knowing you put something somewhere but then not being to find it.
Well, I think I’m going insane. :~)
You guys know I’m working on the cookbook, right? Well a few weeks ago I made some great progress. I finished the first chapter had the entire outline complete and even wrote out introductions for at least 90% of the recipes. I was ecstatic and I really liked the way the book was coming together
So Wednesday I wanted to show my progress to "the designer", my friend who’s helping with the layout. I brought up the file and it was empty. Not empty per say but it had my last draft in it, the one before I made all the additions a few weeks back.
"Hmpf", I thought, and told him I’d email to him later. I figured I must have done a save as or at worst I’d just have to go through my backups and find the file the day I was working on it.
So that’s what I did last night. I was starting to feel motivated to work on it so I dug around on the computer. It had to be there right? I’m not crazy, RIGHT?
Well, it’s not. And really I mean it is NO WHERE TO BE FOUND!
I search through my backups, every document on my computer. It’s like I never did it.
Maybe I imagined it? Did I accidently trash it? Are the little time sucker trolls sabotage me?
I hate when things like this happen for the pure fact that I want, I NEED an explanation. That’s just the type of person I am.
So I cried myself to sleep on the husbands shoulder last night and woke up this morning a little upset but overall ready to face the fact that it’s gone.
I will rewrite. I’m just so MAD. Mostly because I LOVED what I did. Of course I can’t remember why or exactly what I wrote. I just remember being really happy with it.
Ok, enough. It’s gone.
It happened. I’ll deal.
