My vcenter datacenter disappears with each logout/login!

This is extremely frustrating.  I am new to vsphere webclient and vcenter and I spent a long time yesterday building a datacenter, adding a vcenter (I think I'm using the right terminology) adding in hosts, migrating vm's from one host to another and a bunch of other smaller tasks.

Today I log in and everything is zero, zero, zero, zero.

How can this be?  What's going on?

Can someone please help me?

Thanks a million in advance.

That was it.

I was using administrator

I thought that might be a problem so I typed what I thought was right:
administrator.vsphere.local and got an authentication error

Then I remembered the @ sign:
administrator@vsphere.local

I'll never forget that again.  That was a very frightening few minutes.  I thought all my work was somehow erased.

Anyway, like I said, thanks a million.
