STRESS AND OLD AGE = A MESS

I made such a mess of things. I posted a blog on 2-18-10. When I was making this post I had to write it several times and when I went to publish it I couldn't find it. So I typed it again and after publishing I couldn't find it!

Finally it went through the next day when I retyped it again. It was my post on the Pay It Forward Contest. OMG you are not going to believe this. So I picked my winners on the 25th of February and left each of them a comment on their blog about winning. I will be sending them both gifts. They in turn are supposed to do a post, link to me and send out two gifts to their winners. Simple right? Wrong!

The other day I was working on a post for my Blogiversary in April. Mainly because I don't want to forget the day and have it pass me by. So I went back to link to my very first post. Under that post I found the posts that I lost. They were dated with '09, obviously my mistake. So I just thought I would delete them so I deleted one, went back to delete the other and ended up deleting the actual post from the 18th. Then I went and deleted the other wrong one but then I realized that I should have kept that one but now they are all gone. No post, no comments like it never happened.

So when the winners have to link back to me there is no post to link to. I am not posting it again because I actually did that post 4 times! I just kind of feel like it wasn't meant to be. Well anywho these are the two winners:

Katherine at Another Day, Another Moment and Countrynmore so if you ladies could send me your full name & address I will get your gifts in the mail to you. dpucci9972@gmail.com

At this point and time it is up to you if you want to do a post or not!

Boy can I realte! Thia weekend while trying to make a new folder in my email program, I ended up deleting all my old emails - I know I probably shouldn't have saves so many, but some were with links or just something I wanted to remember - well I love them all :-( Sometime I hate computers, bu then I remember all they have done for me - like meeting all of you and I know it's "user error" on my part..
Have a better week and enjoy the first of March!

But, I love it!

I am happy that I was one of the winners. Thanks for posting what happened. I thought that it was just me. I knew that I had read it, but then I couldn't find it. I will send you another e-mail.

TechnoBabe said...

For me, computer problems are frustrating. Sorry about yours.
I will check out the blogs you recommend.

Deborah Ann said...

I have done that once or twice or fifty times myself. Deleted a post that I needed to keep. Ugh!!!

countrynmore said...

Hi, it is me again. I have a felted wool blog give-away which begins today. I will also be doing the "Pay It Forward," coming soon as well.

nancygrayce said...

I'm sorry to laugh, but that sounds just like something I would do!!!

Stella said...

Some things just aren't meant to be. Sorry you had such a frutrating time but most of us out here know just exact how you feel. We have done very similar things. So just breathe.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Oh girl I've done this and even better when I tried to post one in the future I posted it early with only a picture or part of it missing LOL. Sometimes mommy brain really sucks .. :)

Lynn said...

I have been through this agony! Everything I do with my computer is an accident! Everything. Even when I do it right, it is an accident.

Technodoll said...

It's not you! It's Blogger! It loves to mess with us sometimes, oh the troubles I've had... LOL!

At least it made for an intersting story!

*giggle*

Heart2Heart said...

I've been there so many times and done those very same things. But I've also learned things in the process and how to keep those things from getting out of hand and backing things up in a word document or even email.

Then they are not really gone, just misplaced for the time being. Hang in there, it's only Monday!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Lorie Shewbridge said...

First, congratulations to your wonderful winners! Such a wonderful contest and a beautiful thing for you to do... You are such an inspiring woman!
Second, I did something like that just yesterday, but it was the date I screwed up - twice. I couldn't find my posts and it was driving me nuts, but I was SO tired I just gave up and went to sleep. The next day, I found it under edit when I was looking for something else. UURRGGGHHHH!
Ain't it hell getting old?

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Posting nightmares. Glad I'm not the only one...

Stefany said...

Oh man... that stinks. :(

Kirby3131 said...

That is a comedy of errors for sure!

Laura said...

That made me smile! I'm feeling the same way- I'm chalking it up to full time teaching- mothering-wifing and no sleep!!! ;-)

Heather said...

That would have drove me insane! I don't blame you one bit for scrapping the whole post.

I love the whole Pay it Forward thing and try to do random acts of kindness whenever an opportunity presents itself.
