It sounds like you removed the entire notification area. To add it back,
right click on an empty spot in the gray area at the top of the screen
(this is known as the "top panel"). From the menu that pops up, select
"Add to Panel...". Search for "Notification Area", select it, and click
the "Add" button. That should do it. While you're there, you can play
around with some of the other cool panel applets if you like.
