I have a lot to do today.

I have to do dishes, and clean up the pile of clutter that has accumulated on the kitchen counter. I have to do sixty-three loads of laundry, and I have to change twelve diapers an hour and try to get the twins to go peepee on the potty and not on the floor/my left foot. And I have to go to the grocery store and the Green Barn so that I can feed the family something other than onion and ketchup soup with pancakes.

But did you all notice the new background? I have been wanting to customize my blog for a long time, but have tried only to discover that I have not had the time/skill to do it yet. Last night, I sat down and spent a couple hours working on it and finally figured it out. What gets me is the fact that it actually took about ten minutes to make the background and apply it, but the rest of the time was spent trying to figure out how to do it. Yeah, that ten minutes of work has taken me three months to accomplish.

So now that I know how to do cool things, I really want to finish my bloggy project. But I know that if I do, the kids will stay in their jammies all day, watching TV, and eating whatever crumbs they find in the couch cushions. And Marty will come home to me still in my bathrobe, with wild, un-cared for children and no food for dinner, but my blog will be pretty!

OK, maybe I won't do it that way. But there will be changes coming soon, little by little. Hope you like them!

Your blog looks absolutely lovely! Congratulations on figuring it out. Now please tell me that 63 loads of laundry was an exaggeration, okay? I got tired just reading it. With your family, it just might not be!

Namaste, DJan
