I figured that the best way to get myself motivated to write on this blog was to have a bit of a redesign. I see so many awesome Mommy Bloggers out there with wickedly cool looking sites, and I wants me some of that action!
I have a bit of experience, of course, with web design, but for some odd reason I cannot figure out how to create a fresh, funky theme that truly represents what I want this blog to be. It makes me a sad bubby.
Of course, it hasn’t stopped me from trying! Yesterday I redesigned the entire site into a simple, yet hopefully still engaging blog. At the MOMENT, it feels like an accomplishment, and I feel like I’m on the right track as far as layout goes. But I know the feeling won’t last long and in too short a time (as in – I’m already feeling it) I’ll be annoyed and ready to throw my computer out the window.
If I had the money, I would consider just hiring a designer to put my thoughts into action. I mean, I love digital scrapbooking and have TONS of layouts which I’ve made in photoshop… but the transition from PS to WordPress has been an undertaking I’ve just not got the energy for. I mean, come on, I’m incubating a tiny person inside of me. Surely that gives me a bye for learning new skills!
What else is on my mind, you ask? Well today I’ve got a lot going on!
Woke up early this morning (after going to bed after 2 AM) screaming for my mother, as I had a horrible nightmare about my sister growing a penis and trying to rape me!? WTF does that say about me?? Or my sister for that matter….
Once up, I realised that Mark had kept to his plan and was downstairs rocking out on his new Kinect fitness game to try and get in shape. Sadly I could hear the TV blasting and his every footfall as he jumped, ran and knackered himself out. So I wasn’t exceptionally pleased. I did manage a bit more of a doze once he was done, though.
As he was getting dressed for work, I opened my eyes and just looked across the room at him. I felt very lucky to be able to wake to such a good-hearted, happy, handsome man each day. He smile over at me, and we shared a lovely few minutes together before he had to get going.
It set me up for the day perfectly… I just felt so happy and loved and fulfilled. We have a lot of turmoil we deal with day to day, but the truth is that no one could ever love me better than he does. So I try to make it my mission to give him every reason to continue.
In other news, OW! My back is killing me today. I think I have more bad days than good ones when it comes to my back, and it’s starting to inhibit my quality of life. Plus, yesterday I managed to break a toe on my left foot, which is KILLING me.
This afternoon I found that I was slightly hunched over in my desk chair, so I tried to sit up straight. But my ribs seemed to be caught on something, and I wound up with the air sucked from my lungs!
Moan moan moan!
I’m starving. Going to go find something to snack on. 😀
