it all happened last week. my brother-in-law rob left a message that he got junk e-mail sent to him from our email address. so into that email account we went, deleted everything, and closed it down. it made colin feel so gross (like our house had been broken into) that he decided to delete everything we don't use that might have personal information on it. including our google account. what do we need that for? deleted.
the next day i typed my blog address into the browser and a "sorry, the blog has been removed" message came up. that's weird. so i went to blogger.com to sign in, put in my email address (which no longer existed) and thought "ohhh, because i deleted my email account!" so i was able to sign back in to that hotmail account and tried blogger.com again, this time realizing it had little to do with my email account and everything to do with my google account, which also no longer existed. feeling slightly ill at the thought of having lost all i'd ever written about my kids, crafts, not to mention all my favourite blog links that i sign into my blog every day to check out, i told colin what had happened. he started to feel slightly ill as well and sat at the computer for a good half hour trying to figure out a way to get it back. in the end he read that even if you re-open that account your blog information will all be gone forever for privacy reasons or something. lame. so there it is. or, rather, there it isn't anymore. it's gone for good. i didn't update it that often anyway, right? hmph.
live and learn.
so here is a new blog. i've tried to remember and re-collect all the blogs and websites i love most, if you can remember any i've forgotten please let me know and i'll try to find it! the only part i'm truly disappointed to have lost is my molly birth story. i think i remember it all, but it was always here in case i forgot anything, and now it's not anymore.
i also somehow lost my blog header that i worked so hard on, i don't know how it got deleted off my computer but it's nowhere to be found. so i made a new one!
and there you have it.
