Holy Cannoli!!!

I think I could have just given birth....seriously. No lie. I just had the BIGGEST scare!!

There I was uploading some docs to Google Docs and all of a sudden, I got all these error messages. So I closed out my internet and reopened. I tried logging in to all my usuals - blogger, docs, facebook....but then I got a message from my google programs saying that my account had been DISABLED!!! uummmmm......what?!?!?! I just sat there staring. And then I tried it all again. Like 50 times!! I still don't know what happened - but all I know is that I went into a state of panic. No biggie that I couldn't get into my gmail - I only really use that attached to my blog comments. But my Google DOCS?!?! My LIFE is on there!!! EVERYTHING for school is on there - all of my lessons for next week and the entire year to come (and to come again next year)! O-M-GOSH!!! And then not to get into blogger??? Totally freakin'! So I went looking for my blog - and it said it had been REMOVED!!!! ummmm...what?!?! Ok, by this point, I beyond freaking. Like hysterical - and panicked - and hormonal...let's not forget that, since I am 8 1/2 pregnant! Oh, AND my day had already been horrible with my 2 year old waking me up at 4:30....and it's not like I can drink coffee all day. Sigh.

So I head on over to some of my fave blogs to ask for help....but...ummm...I can't leave any comments because my google account has been disabled!! So, LUCKILY, I have some emails from some fabulous ladies:

Kristin, over at A Teeny Tiny Teacher and
Jennifer, over at Empowering Little Learners.

Now, these ladies did not know how to help me, but they sure did share my freaking-outness....They were so good to me, trying to comfort me and give me advice. Kristin even helped me out by blogging about it.

In her {POST}, she referenced Custom Blog Designs, who helped her with her blog design and who just HAPPENED to be talking about security for your blog...
{HERE} is that post....I highly recommend you read it and do it!!

I came home from school today and all of a sudden, POOF! Everything is back up and running....well, except my Docs. It's there, but I can't upload just yet and I can't "grab" anything from anyone right now.

I have NO idea what happened....I don't know WHY it happened, or why it's back. I haven't heard from GOOGLE (even though I filled out their form like 5 times!) to tell me what happened, that they were fixing it, or even - Hey, sorry about the inconvenience and scare....sheesh!!

I wish this upon NO ONE!! I'm glad it's back, and I can't wait until my Docs are back fully operational. I may be switching blogging servers (or whatever it's called), but until then, I will be definitely reading into that Security 1st blog post from Custom Blog Designs.

OK - life can resume now. But can I just tell you?? I am SOOO bummed that I missed out on so many posts, freebies, and chances to comment! If y'all posted anything good in the last 2 days - just a post or a freebie, do you wanna comment with the link?!?!

Even if you didn't, you can still leave a comment telling me how I wasn't cookoo to be freaking out! lol

And I'm even more bummed that I wasn't able to post my own thoughts and ideas. I had some remainder Gingerbread Activities we did, and I had some good reindeer stuff for this week I wanted to post. But now, I need regroup myself and take a breather - and catch up on my google reader....which, BTW, is STILL not showing all the blogs that I "FOLLOW" - but I guess I have to just be thankful that it back at all, right!?!?

Same thing happened to me but I got everything back but my blog! I haven't heard anything yet, either. Glad yours is back!

Whoa! I would have totally freaked!! I'm so glad you're back! All that stress on top of being 8 1/2 months pregnant? I hope your docs are back up soon. If there's anything I can do to help or anything I can send to you just say the word!

I had tried to go to your site yesterday and it said it had been removed. It wasn't the only blog that I had that reaction to - I hope there's not a bug out there hurting our favorite teaching resources!

Annie Moffatt said...

WOW! You freaked me out!!! You poor thing and to think that you are that far pregnant!! I am so glad you didn't go into labor! Take a deep breath and I will drink a cup of coffee for you;) Thanks for the advice and now I need to get busy making my blog more secure!
