Try using this application for opening your different domain files it's a proven app:
To open your domain file in Lion or Mountain Lion or to switch between multiple domain files Cyclosaurus has provided us with the following script that you can make into an Applescript application with Script Editor. Open Script Editor, copy and paste the script below into Script Editor's window and save as an application.
do shell script "/usr/bin/defaults write com.apple.iWeb iWebDefaultsDocumentPath -boolean no"
tell application "iWeb" to activate
You can download an already compiled version with this link: iWeb Switch Domain.
Just launch the application, find and select the domain file in your Home/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder that you want to open and it will open with iWeb. It modifies the iWeb preference file each time it's launched so one can switch between domain files.
WARNING: iWeb Switch Domain will overwrite an existing Domain.sites2 file if you select to create a new domain in the same folder. So rename your domain files once they've been created to something other than the default name.

I'll try your suggestion but I'm pretty sure the results will be the same.
I've unhidden the files and found the folder but these domains are super old. I thought I was saving to my external drive but that file is two days old.
As I mentioned, my old mobile me disk has been opening without my "consent". Could it have been trying to save it there?

I like the switch domain but again it's not coming up with my version from last night. I think the mobile me issue has something to do with it. It didn't open the Mobile Me disk icon this time however.

You can try these fixes:
1 - delete the iWeb preference file, com.apple.iWeb.plist, that resides in your
User/Home/Library/ Preferences folder.
2 - delete iWeb's cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your
User/Home/Library/Caches/com.apple.iWeb folder (Snow Leopard and Earlier).
3 - launch iWeb and try again.
NOTE: In Lion and Mountain Lion the Library folder is now invisible. To make it permanently visible enter the following in the Terminal application window: chflags nohidden ~/Library and hit the Enter button - 10.7: Un-hide the User Library folder.
If that doesn't help continue with:
- move the domain file from your Home/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder to the Desktop.
- launch iWeb Switch Domain, create a new test site, save the new domain file and close iWeb.
- go to the your Home/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder and delete the new domain file.
- move your original domain file from the Desktop to the iWeb folder.
- launch iWeb and try again.

These would all be great suggestions if the file on my external drive wasn't from 2 days ago.
Any thoughts on using time machine to retrieve a non-existent file?
Where the heck was I saving to? I honestly saved every 30 minutes. I watched the little line fill each time. Where was the information going if not to the external harddrive or the domain file?
