I must be gaining more patience. I had a hellish night trying to retrieve my blog site after having lost it most of the day. I tried retrieving it most of the day unsuccessfully. I had re-installed wordpress over my original site. When I did that it apparently forfeited my site, and asked me if I wanted to create a site. Finally got it right, and was able to retrieve WITHOUT CURSING AT ANY POINT DURING THE PROCESS. THERE IS HOPE FOR ME. 🙂
Have a wonderful day!
