    So you emptied the trash since you deleted your Documents folder? If not, it's likely still in there and just needs to be dragged out and dropped in your Home folder.

    Good thinking... If you just accidentally removed it from your Side Bar, you should be able to get it back on the Side Bar by opening your Home folder and the dragging and dropping the Documents folder onto the Side Bar.
