Ramble Time

Hi! I've made the rounds with EC lately, but haven't done a good job of responding to comments. I've been busy the past few days with blogs. I redid a blog for Laura and I am happy with how it came out.I am also working on this blog. I uploaded the new template a few minutes ago, but the margins were all messed up and I didn't feel like dealing with that at I put this xmassy look back up. I'll get it all figured out and loaded tomorrow. Here's a sneak peek~I might just make this blog private for a little bit tomorrow afternoon while I get it all adjusted. So if you come knocking and the blog is down...don't get worried! I showed my husband the design and his first comment was when are you changing that pic? I told him never. He had this look and said that I am holding my mouth weird. Yup...weird...I like it. Dori took the pic!

Speaking of blogs, tomorrow is the last day to enter the New Look for the New Year Blog Makeover Giveaway. One lucky winner will get a fab new blog look done by ME!!! Head on over to I Am Harriet and get signed up!!!

I am behind on posting. I won 3 blog giveaways recently and I need to post about them. I already received 2 of the prizes.

Today we had really WARM weather. Monday it was zero and today was in the 60s. It was a little stormy at time, but we were still able to fit in a walk. How nice it was to get fresh air in December!!! Otherwise I am trudging away each day on the elliptical machine. I started yet another blog to track my progress, but I won't bore you with that.

Hey check this out~ a blogger (from a blog I designed) has been featured in a few newspaper articles. She's an 80 yr old blogger and really COOL! Here is an article from a Seattle newspaper: Octogenarian blogs with the best of them Her blog is very insightful and often humorous!

On the homefront...thing's aren't too toxic with everyone home. I've been doing a pretty good job of being calm with my teen (well except for today when I totally over-reacted and went off on him...but I will chalk that up to PMS!) DH seems a little bored (but not really grumpy!) and the 2 youngest are just their bouncy happy selves. The kids have been having a slumber party in Parker's room each night, but we were worried that Dori would not want to sleep in her bed again if they kept that up. So tonight everyone is in their own bed...except for me who is still up on the 'puter! Imagine that!
