Frustrating!

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!


Friday reflections

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!


Hmmm....

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.


Letters!

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! :)
