So yes, I was able to reconstruct my data base, sort of. I lost all of my comments, but I don't think I had too many. What I really want is the list of recipes and fragrances that were used with each batch and the date that the batches were made. I am so glad that I had this blog to reference! It is my soap diary; my journal! I don't care if no one reads it. It can be for me and me alone. It has already served a very useful purpose!! If it helps anyone else - YAY!!
Take home message - MAKE BACK-UPS of your files. DO NOT ASSUME you will remember to hit SAVE AS instead of SAVE. So if you're going to do any kind of huge modification to a document make a copy of it and use the copy to screw around. HOLY SMIHOLY did my eyes become huge saucers when I realized too late what button I had clicked.
Anyway, I feel better today. All was not lost.
So, assuming I was able to reconstruct all or at least most of my database, I have made 106 pounds of soap!! Wow, that's a lot of soap! And I have had and am still having lots of fun doing it!
