Your situation was a perfect television comedy scenario.
I think we all have had conflicts like this happen to us, Mr. Peepers. Whatever happens only makes us stronger. Or learn patience. Or both.
Yesterday I was working on an art project with my GIMP2. Part way through the coloring process, my pointer icon got stuck and I could not shift the program to save the process already completed, or even change the paintbrush to a different mode of technique. So, yeah, really stuck.
Luckily J. came to the rescue and put new batteries in the mouse so I could finish my digital graphic to completion.
I must mention, here, that I have faced a scenario like this before, in the past, where the outcome had not been so positive. I could not save the partially-completed artwork, as rebooting the computer to a working condition came before trying to hit save (how?) during this conundrum -- so it meant starting all over again (patience learned!) remembering the steps I had previously used before I lost my work.
But you know, because my completed artwork was put on trial in this way, the satisfaction in finishing this digital artwork all the way through, more than doubled. And I was fully aware of the steps required to get the art through all necessary stages, having done it twice.
Just yesterday, I learned a new (for me) technique for inserting a texture I created (after the GIMP2 art program became un-stuck) using the bucket-fill feature, that will "stick" with me, from now on -- most likely due to my memorable GIMP2 sticky mis-hap.
Hopefully next time you'll decide to wash the kitchen floor AFTER you make another stir-fry cous cous dinner. Just maybe. With you, Mr. Peepers, we are never quite sure. ❤️️
