How To Turn Your Spare Bedroom Into A Walk-In Closet, in 437 Easy Steps (Part SEVEN!)

Here is what actually just happened to me:

It is 10:50 a.m. on Sunday morning.  I had some free time and sat down and decided to get caught up on this story, and so I wrote ALL OF PART SEVEN.

And it was funny!

And I finished it, in about twenty minutes!

And all I had to do... ALL I HAD TO DO was to just insert a couple of pictures, which is SUPEREASY TO DO AND WHAT CAN GO WRONG?!?!?!?!?!?

*ominous music plays, storm clouds on the horizon, the camera pans out*

So I clicked on the little icon to add pictures and my computer informed me that my internet connection was lost, so I had to go reconnect to it, and then it said I had to reload the page, and so LIKE AN IDIOT I did that and it erased every single thing I wrote, and so you will have to live without the thrilling story of how I went to Home Depot and got scowled at by an employee for making eye contact, and you will have to live without my musings on who buys a barrel of pretzel sticks at Menards for $5.99, and instead I'm going to post this picture:

Which is a gorilla I drew the other night, at the PTA Spaghetti Dinner where I didn't eat spaghetti because I hate public food.

Middle Daughter said it didn't look like a gorilla.  In retrospect, It think it looks kind of like a Neanderthal Turtle, which maybe makes Middle Daughter right.

When I come back to the story I'm just going to fast-forward to the part where the electrician insulted us.

I had that problem before. After about the 3rd time that this particular blogging platform lost a blog post, I switched to Blogger.

Are you sure nothing saved? Or was the internet connection not there the entire time? There might be a bit of it still there...

Or some kind of ninja turtle.

I have learned, in those situations, to save what I have already written into another document before I refresh anything.

The head does make me think of a ninja turtle. Losing stuff on the computer is always annoying.

Now I think it's a Ninja Turtle, TOO. Back to the drawing board. Literally.
