In the time it would have taken to cure AIDS, balance and payoff the National Deficit, Conquer world hunger, and find Osama Bin Ladin... I attempted a little nip and tuck on the old blog. Anyone who doesn't blog loves to say to anyone who does..." I just don't have the time to do THAT" or "Where do you find all your time to 'play' on the computer... I have children to care for" and usually I laugh and say that I do it for only about an hour a day ( Okay so I minimize it a tad) but today... I put in a full time job worth of work on this bloody thing. I though it was going to be a quick little project! I consulted with a professional, my new Blogging Idol- Vanessa, and she explained how easy it was to do. I tried it for a good long time and then I got desperate and called her on the phone. This was the first time I had actually REALLY talked to her and I didn't even have time to be nervous or mess around with the preliminaries- I was at my wits end and I knew she could help. We had a great chat and after 3 phone calls and her thinking I am a total IDIOT... I just begged her to do it for me. She helped a poor train wreck out and now I have a new look. I did do the header, but she had to step in and assist me with the main body. Sooooo... needless to say I am kindof embarrassed that on my first meeting I showed how lame I really am. Good things did come of it though... We chatted for a while and I found out that we were almost room-mates at SUU ( well...except for the fact that I was married and she attended 3 years after I left and I didn't even live in Cedar City at the time she was there... minor details!) The paralleling didn't end there...we both were teachers, her daughter's name is Vivian ( they call her Vivi) and you all know that I know a Viv, We both lived in Idaho ( opposite ends of the state, but who cares... the gem state is the gem state!), and we both have fun, outgoing, energetic mothers. We are practically twins that were separated at birth! Well it was a crazy day, but I did get a new look! I think I am going to like it! If you don't...please don't burst my bubble- it took me ( and Vanessa...well, mostly Vanessa) all day ( and all night) to do it! Thanks, Vanessa... I owe you one!
P.S. If this post seems a little disconnected or rambling and doesn't make any sense- Sorry! I have slaved over a hot computer all day and I just can't type or think anymore!
