That’s Better!

Ah, I can read my blog again without squinting. Were you squinting? I thought perhaps it was just my computer, but I tried on P’s work laptop and it was still incredibly small print for my poor eyesight.

I have to admit that I’m a layout junkie. I could realistically change the look of my blog daily if I didn’t think people would find me a little quirky. My MySpace page changes almost constantly depending on my mood. I try something for a few days and then think, “Hmmmm, wonder if I could find something I like better?”, and usually I do find something I like a little more that day, so I switch. I would be a horrible candidate to have someone create a blog look for me because within a couple of weeks, I’d just need a new one anyway. Can you imagine how much money that would cost me every year? But today folks, it was merely my poor squinting eyes I had to accommodate, so a new layout it is.


So, it’s Thursday. We don’t really have anything going on. Once P gets up I’m planning on getting in a shower and then Miss L and I need to run to the library before picking C up from school. We have more reading homework to do tonight; and if last night is any indication of how easily we can get that done we should have no problems this evening. It literally took C only 10 minutes to crank out two math sheets, do two of his site word lists and read his entire reading book. Yeah, my kid is a brainiac! (Which, of course, is a completely biased opinion given I’m his mommy!) Some of the speed may have been due to the fact that I told him he’d be inside for recess completing math homework if it wasn’t done last night, but since they’ll have indoor recess again today, that probably wasn’t such a great threat to use as motivation.

Speaking of motivation, I have none today. The playroom is a disaster and I need to work on it. It’s beyond the kid’s threshold for getting it done without help. In fact, it’s so messy even I don’t have the energy to do it all in one sweep through. The legos are the worst. I don’t know why they insist on dumping every single teeny tiny lego on the floor to find one little blue piece, but they do. I also have to get the dishes done, sweep downstairs, vacuum the stairway and hall, put away laundry and dust. Really wishing it could all just wait a few days, but then I’ll really be bogged down, so today it is.

    I read one blog that changes its layout all the time, and I actually think it’s kind of cool. Though it does have the disadvantage that you don’t associate a certain look with it. Less of a signature, if you will. But more playful.

    At least your kids play with the legos when they dump them out. Mine just dump the basket of blocks and move onto something else!

    I really like your new layout too. A very nice 3 column template…just one more reason to switch to wordpress!

    I almost didn’t know if this was your blog when I got here. I like the look!
    I have no motivation today either. Not sure why. I just want to lie down. Zzzz.
