In with the New

Hello and welcome to mad orange fools at Blogspot. I've been wanting to make a change for awhile, but I wasn't sure what direction to follow; so for now, I am here and I think it will be good. I've been using MT for years and it is just too fussy for me. I don't use most of the bells and whistles, and when something breaks down, it is difficult for me to figure out what is wrong because my tech knowledge only goes so far. Recently my comments text box mysteriously disappeared and it drove me nuts for days. I checked the code and re-checked the code. It worked for months and I changed nothing so why did it disappear? I communicated with my hosting company. I searched the MT support forums. And then I decided that all I really want to do is have a place to post words and pictures and not worry so much about how to make a content management system work properly. And what better time for a change than at the start of a new year.

The new year got off to a hectic start for me. After a super relaxing day on the 1st, I returned to work and had 3 nine-hour days in a row! So much for working part-time! It was actually nice to be super busy, but it gets stressful too, and boy, sitting inside all day really wears me down after awhile. I was so relieved when Friday finally arrived. After Will arrived home from work, we headed out to Gooski's. I really needed to get out of the house and out of my head, plus we were hoping to run into our friend Blazzzer. We ended up running into a bunch of friends, including Blazzzer, and had a fine time eating way too much fried bar food and drinking beer. A perfect ending for a stressful work week.

Yesterday I wasn't super productive as I kept getting distracted by my website woes. I spent far too much time debating whether or not using blogspot would really work for me, then I had to fuss with the template...I am just too damn anal sometimes. Sheesh. I did manage to clean out one of my closets and cut the material for a tote bag that I want to make soon. Then it was time for football and knitting, two of my favorite things!

This morning I am trying to find the motivation to go out for a run. Then I plan to do laundry all day while watching more football and knitting. (I am finishing up a scarf which is a belated Christmas gift.) A happy Sunday to you!
