~~Have you ever spent so much time fiddling with, dealing with, and arguing with your blog HTML that you feel like quitting altogether? I did this week. My hubby and I chose to 'bring back to life' our family website. My husband wanted to get back into blogging and figured with his busy schedule, a joint effort was the best solution. But trying to get the background layout that I wanted to use over on Cleaving to Christ almost had me beat.
So I'm just curious, how many of you use a professional service or professional layout that is paid for and how many of you do it yourself and experience this for a frustration regularly??
~~Just in case you want to hop over and look at the layout that I spent days on, here is a link. I make the common mistake of not telling my husband how much I love him and appreciate him. He usually gets to hear how irritated I am about all things. By the way, have you told your spouse that you love them today?
~~I don't know whether to weep or be glad that we don't have cable in our rental house here. The Iowa Hawkeyes have chosen to play peewee ball this year and I feel very frustrated with them. But I guess I can be thankful that I don't actually have to watch them fail right?? C'mon HAWKS!!!
I am beginning to feel very jealous of my husband and his job. Since we have moved to Alaska in June my husband has gone deep sea fishing, gone hunting up in the Arctic Circle, been sent to Texas for training, and will soon be heading off to Hawaii for training. I get to sit here and not go anywhere. I told him yesterday that I am going to get a Command Sponsor letter and take a hop out of here, and at this point I don't think I care where I go.
The military cargo planes have jump seats in them and when those jumpseats have not been occupied by official government travelers, they allow service members or their families to use them to get around the country. Just today a military cargo transport plane flew from here to Green Bay, Wisconsin. That is a very short drive to my family. I was ever so tempted!!
And on my final note, does anybody know anybody at all, who loves dogs who might be traveling from the Kansas City area to Alaska? My dog is stuck in Kansas City and I have no idea how to get him up here. He is too large for the biggest airline approved pet carrier. Even sitting down his head is higher than the actual carrier, and the airlines have these ridiculous size requirements beyond the actual animal size. He would lay down for the entire flight and be quite relaxed but they won't hear it and I am now stuck in Alaska without my dog. Any pet flight suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Just in case you guys forgot how adorable my dog is:
