I started some HTML training and while I would like to say that it helped me with my new blog layout...it didn't. I still can't figure out how to add a "button". I really want the "I Heart Studs" button by Ana White from Knock-off Wood.
However I was able to take off our picture and replace it with this cute one. I have to give credit to Ashely O. of Coffee Break. I saw her linen background and title and linen is one of my all time favorite fabrics. So I grabbed another background but used a similar linen header. I'm sure none of you really care though - I just wanted to her know that my unoriginal self is copying her. It makes me feel better about myself. And if you go to her blog - you have got to turn on your volume. She's got the best music. Totally coffehouse music.
So, onto recent life...the girls met their teachers on Thursday and school starts next Tuesday (can you hear the heavens singing "Haaaaaaaaaallelujah!"? Oh, I suppose I'm the only one who hears that music in my crazy "been wtih the kids too long this summer" head.) Really - I chose to be a stay at home mom but some days I wonder if I really knew what I was signing up for. I work part-time but that doesn't fulfill the "adult interaction" void seeing as how the majority of the time I am parked by my lonely self in front of the computer trying to remember what the heck I'm supposed to be doing. Waaah, wah, wah...what was I talking about? Oh, the girls...
The girls met their teachers yesterday. Avery was there all of 30 minutes in her classroom and has already started with a runny nose and sneezing this morning. Seriously? Well, it's better than fever and vomiting so I'll accept it as enabling a pre-school boost to her immune system. I hope she's over by Tuesday because bygod the girl is going to school. Come hell or high water! THIS MOMMY NEEDS A BREAK.
I envisioned my first day of freedom being filled with chocolate, massages, pedicures and really fattening food but then reality struck this morning when I realized that I have to do a New User Orientation for 2 of our clients. Shucks. So close. I do hope to do the orientation early though, then either head to lunch with friends or go to Freebirds (A&M established burrito joint that's all over Texas now). I've been craving one for months and the closest one is in town.
Well, I've got pictures to edit. While in Dallas for our last visit I tried out using RAW images with my camera and dangit to heck I didn't realize what a chore that is when it comes to editing! Plus I forgot that it was on that setting and took a bunch more pictures...ooohhhh...time time time...I need more time.
This is a completely rambling post...and now....I think I'm done. Off to edit pictures!
