Work in Progress

Contrary to popular belief, I have not fallen off the face of the Earth.

After a lengthy flight delay in Denver, we made it back to Texas late Sunday night. By the time we got home, got the car unloaded, got ready for bed, and went to sleep, it was close to 2 AM.

Monday, we were back up at 6:00 to get the kids out the door, and I followed them out for a morning doctors appointment. After the appointment, I was off to campus to complete an assignment, then back home to pick up the kids. Then, we three went to a park near my school so I could spend more time studying for finals while they played and tormented wildlife. When James got off work at 6 PM, I handed the kids off and went to school again to take my Algebra final. I didn't get home Monday until after 10:00. Then I was off to bed late, up again early, out for coffee with a friend and home again to collapse.

Yesterday afternoon, I learned a couple of new HTML codes to modify Blogger layouts, so I subjected a few of my friends to my new skills. (Randi, Amy, DeDe, and Jenny) I worked and tweaked and tweaked and worked late into the night, so I was again off to bed late, up again early, and am now beginning to reformat my own layout.

I try on blog backgrounds like I try on blue jeans, so I've spent the whole morning looking for interesting graphics and cool wallpapers to upload. I still haven't found one that's just right, so my blog is currently an ever-changing work in progress. And all of that is why I've not posted more about our trip, or posted really anything for that matter.

I promise I will very soon...

    I'm thinking I need to sign up for a blog redo. It seems like your talent! My blog is beginning to look so blah compared to all my fancy pants friends.

  • Jennifer W

    Me too! I will get in line for blog training, just let me know when.

  • Emily

    I would be more than happy to take you up on the offer you left on my blog. Let me know what you need me to do.
    I am looking forward to hearing about how your trip to CO went. I am sorry that you have been so incredibly busy since you got home. I bet you can't wait for this semester to be over.
    Are you going to the movie tomorrow night? I hope to see you there!

  • Randi

    You may have yourself a little side business here, Amanda! I'd pay!

  • Michele

    OOOh Amanda - I love your new header!

    I need a blog makeover too - I'm like you, I spend a ton time time looking at templates but just never seal the deal ;)

  • Michelle

    You are doing so well. What a good friend you are. Miss seeing you so much. Maybe one of these days I'll run into you again. Ha!

    Amanda....I want a banner design like Elizabeth'!

    Also, I missed the blogher conference. Was planning to go but could not make it? Did you go? Are you going to the one in July?
