So, I'm playing around with themes for my blog here at Typepad. They haven't added any new ones in a long time. I am experimenting with several, but when I got to preview them, they display all wonky. I don't know what is going on. It's very annoying. I've put in a support ticket with them and hopefully they can advise me. It's just so frustrating to want to change my layout and I can't because the preview won't work. I did this a few weeks ago and it was doing the same thing! I gave up then. I even applied the theme to see if that helped, but it displayed wonky. Phooey!
I found this pretty background on google images tonight and I absolutely love it. I thought it would be perfect for a background to my blog. If I can find the owner, I'd love to give credit. I changed the colors of the links, the color of the header, and I changed some of the fonts. I think it's so pretty!
I probably should post right now as I'm stressed out. My friend is still not well and I dressed and drove to his house to carry him to the hospital and he wouldn't go. I am tired of being stressed and worried when he won't do anything. He did tell me that the hospital scheduled an MRI on Sunday, so I told him, okay, I'll go home. I didn't sleep well last night. I left my phone on in case he had an emergency. I HATE to leave my phone on when I sleep. I have enough trouble sleeping without worrying about the phone ringing and waking me up. Luckily, it didn't, but I still didn't sleep because I kept expecting it to ring. UGH. I'm glad it's stretch day on the workout calendar. I definitely need a day of rest!
In other news, I actually wanted to update my feelings about my layout. I just got off track there for a bit. So, after sleeping (barely) on it, I looked at it again today. I think I really like it. I might change the background and colors, but everything will stay the same. I'm loving the fonts. I will probably play around with it today with different backgrounds just to see how I like those. Hopefully, I will lose some of my stress. Starbucks would be great, but I don't think even Starbucks would help today!
Well, since I was already stressed, I decided to work on my Typepad layout. LOL! I used the Nimble base and re-did the colors, background, fonts, etc. I think I like it. I will keep it for a few days and see. I like that I can change the background at any time. So, say around Halloween, I could do a Halloween background or something of the sort. We'll see how it goes. For now, I like it. I wish I could make the header a bit smaller. I keep playing with it, but so far, I still think it's too big. I'm going to leave it be for now and look at it tomorrow with fresh eyes.
So much for going to bed. I decided to change my layout again. I'm not sure about this. We'll see how long it lasts. lol I like the purple flower banner, but I really wish I could tweak the layout itself more. Let's see if this one lasts until tomorrow's post. I'm not betting on it :p
I have a stack of letters ready to go out to my pen pals. Look at this beautiful stack of outgoing mail:
I got three new letters in today's mail and I have one more to write. I'm thinking of taking all four to Starbucks on Wednesday evening to get back into my regular schedule. Letters and lattes, here I come! :)
