I can't believe how incredibly STUPID I am!!!!!!!! Here is where I have to tell you how badly I've neglected my stitching corner. I haven't touched it other than to throw more patterns and projects on the pile. Last night, I decided I couldn't stand to look at that mess any more and started going through the massive mess. Horrors!!! What did I discover???!!! My package of finishes for Donna's Stitching for a Cure tree was still sitting there waiting to be mailed to her. I must have moaned or whimpered because DH asked me what on earth was the matter. This week has been a pretty crappy week when it comes to my stupidity. This was the second stupid thing I discovered I did or in this case, didn't do at all. I now get to do the crawl of shame to let Donna know how totally mortified I am for my own stupidity.
What else could I possibly have done to top this you ask? Well, lets see, hmmmm. Our computer has been slower than normal, couple that with the fact that I knew I had to download/upload a computer program from the data entry company that I will be doing subcontract work for soon. I decided to remove all my cross stitch patterns and pictures from the computer and put them on one of my flash drives. I thought I knew what was on the flash drive so I formatted it without checking it first. I then copied all files to the drive and deleted them from the computer. After I did this I checked the amount of room left on the drive and was a little concerned as I had a lot (a ton actually) of extra free space left. This wouldn't have been the case if I had actually used the right flash drive. I spoke to my DH and asked if he had saved anything to a flash. No, thankfully, he hadn't. Yes, you would think I should have asked him this before I formatted the stupid drive.
A couple of months ago, we received some much needed software so I could work with Logan on his speech and other therapies at home. We had an older computer that wasn't being used so I set that up for him. At that time, I removed all our family pictures and put them on a flash drive and deleted everything else from that computer. Do you see where I'm going with this yet??? When the truth hit me, I thought I was going to be physcially sick. Most of those pictures, gone, wiped out, never to be seen again. I do, thankfully, have some that we had printed out but the majority are completely gone. Add this stupidity to what I discovered last night and I think you can get the picture of how totally miserable I feel right now.
I do have some progress pics of all the stitching I have done lately but I think you can understand why I'd rather not touch any picture at this particular time. I will get back on here sometime this weekend and post them. Right now, I have to e-mail Donna and try to explain my stupidity.
