Dude You Broke It

Acck! I broke it! I broke it!!! I broke my blog!!!!!

And yes, instead of trying to figure out how to fix it, I sat down and drew about how I broke it…

***Edit*** I figured out what happened. My host provider sent me an email saying I needed to update from 5.2 php to 5.4. That meant absolutely nothing to me, a bunch of gobbledygook. I just went ahead and did what they told me to and POOF! My blog was gone. But as soon as I switched back to 5.2, my blog was magically back. I tried using a default theme that came with WordPress hoping that would fix it. But nope. No blog. :(

Well, today I did some Googling and found out that the plugin, instapress I think it was…I don’t know I have since deleted it, was causing a conflict. I removed it, updated to 5.4, and my blog stayed. YAY! You may have noticed it still looks different though. I sort of got used to the clean look of the theme so I’m keeping it. :)

And why, yes, that is a different header. As I’m sitting here freezing my tooshie off all bundled up in pants and socks and a sweater coat, I thought it was high time I got rid of that summer swimming header.

No Tap Bowling Tournament

I’m dusting off my camera, figuratively. These are a few pictures from yesterday, a no tap bowling tournament. Isabelle teamed up with her favorite friend from her bowling league.

The girls bowled and I took a few pictures when I could, when my little tyrant, Nathan, would let me stand up. :D Yes, every time I tried to get up he insisted I sit back down with him. I’m happy I got some pictures.

Isabelle got a turkey!


I do this. I keep trying to get back but it’s hard. Today I took some pictures and I thought I’d share them. It was actually me procrastinating. About what? My niece Zinnia turned 5 last week. We drove into San Francisco and spent the day with her at Pier 39. I took pictures and I actually edited them, oh my goodness, yes I did. But there was some video I took on my phone that I did not get to that evening so I set it aside for the next day. But the next day came and went and the video went untouched.

Then, as I said earlier, I took these pictures today. I edited them and uploaded them and started to blog about them when I just gave myself a mental kick in the butt and thought: oh just edit the darn videos instead of saving it for another day. So, that’s just what I did. So…here are the pictures from today.

And for good measure…since I am such an awesome procrastinator…can procrastinating be awesome? I declare YES it can be. Anyhooo….some pictures from my nephew Ebow’s birthday:
