Hi There

Just popping in this afternoon to say hi. I went to find a clip art pic of a girl waving & there were some really cute ones out there. I picked this little girl because she looks like me. I have big feet. But I would never wear a skirt that short. Just saying.

Anyway, I've been thinking that I needed to get on here & just blog, blog, blog. I've got some pics at home that I need to load up. I tried to email a couple of pics to a friend on Sunday night & the whole situation melted down into a terrible failure. For some reason, my ancient dinosaur of a laptop can't seem to upload images from my camera. And our desktop doesn't have some of the pics that I wanted to send. I was trying to send some from the laptop & some from the desktop & my head was spinning like a top & nothing was working so I finally got so mad I went to bed without brushing my teeth. It's true.

Therefore, I haven't tried to upload any pics since then. I'm afraid of what it might cost me in emotional strength.

And I kinda feel like I don't have much to say.

I know some of you are shaking your heads in disbelief because MaryAnn's ALWAYS got a little bit of something to say.

And it's true because I just thought of two things I'd like to say:

1. Mike's work shift changed this week. He used to work 7 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. This is almost the exact same schedule I have. It was nice. Now he works 5:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. This is a little rough. Neither of us are morning people. We are stay up foolishly late people. So we are trying to be in bed by 10:00 p.m. & we get up at 4:55 a.m. *ouch* I could stay in bed & let him get himself off to work, but I don't like to do that. Before you decide that I'm stupidly sappy about my man I will have to admit that I'm very afraid of oversleeping. I have to be at work at 7:00 a.m. & it's too super easy for me to snooze my alarm for hours. So I get up with Mike. And I have found that extra morning time to be super productive. I eat breakfast. I read my Bible. I get to take a normal shower instead of a major multitasking 4 minute deal. I can work out. I can make the bed. One morning I even had time to wash dishes. But I'm a little tired. I keep telling myself I'm just getting adjusted to a new schedule. Next week ask me how I'm doing *grin*

2. When I looked at my blog before I started this post there was a box in the corner saying that my blog design will disappear this Friday & to go to The Cutest Blog on the Block for more details. What is THAT all about? I feel the same way about my blog as I do my cell phone ring tone - once I find one I like I keep it. Forever. It's almost the same level of commitment as marriage. I am not kidding.

That's all I have to report. If you made it this far through this post, you are a champ & I love ya!

I like reading your ramblings. Somehow it gives me glimpses into your REAL life, not just the major experiences. I saw the note about the background also. Bummer. Yours is cute.

You have my sympathy - I can't imagine getting up that early every day!

Hi... That is so weird about your blog background. Have you gotten to the bottom of the disappearing graphics yet?
