I have been a neglectful blogger and half heartedly posted a few items this week, but really my heart was not in it at all. I am sorry. Please forgive….
I have been a busy bee. Lo will have her 16th birthday next weekend and I am a-buzz with projects. I usually do things better last minute…hence the busyness.
She has spent the week with her Grandparents and opened up some opportune time to get things done…I will show them to you possibly later; alligator.
One thing I was working on required photos. I have used Shutterfly for years…I just love their website and it takes but a few days and my picture arrive in the mail.
In this case, I needed some asap, so I ordered them through shutterfly but was picking them up at Target.
I had to download them first into picnik.com for grand editing, then save to my pc, then download back to shutterfly…all sounds easy right? well, never for ME. 4 times I got them to my cart in shutterfly and 4 times I got an “error on page.”
I was gritting my teeth. Stomping my feet. Thinking of cussing. (Ok, possibly I cussed, but no one except the animals heard me) Reaching for ice cream pops (at 9 am) The dogs and Linds had thought I was losing my mind…cause I was.
Finally on the 5th try, it worked. An hour later.
I ran to Target while out yesterday and they had my pictures just like I expected. What I did NOT expect was the amount of pictures. 131 pictures to be exact. YOWZA.
I ONLY wanted 26.
Each time I was getting an error,
it I was actually ORDERING the pics.
Luckily the girl in the photo dept felt sorry for me and only charged me for the ones I wanted. I think she felt some pity for me when my chin hit the floor at the sight of 131 pictures and I was on the verge of tears or murder. Always some excitement here for me, right????
We are going to have a nice weekend with the Coach’s side of the family. Looking forward to some laughing, eating and pure merriment. Have I mentioned before how I LOVE my inlaws??? They are the BOMB!
Coach’s Mom is going to teach me how to make deviled eggs…yes, I am 41 and have never made them. I am sure you are stunned knowing what a domestic devil I am already and I have not made them yet….I can eat the heck out of them, now I will know how to make them too! (eating is so much better than making)
I share DNA with 2 of them…hence the weirdness.
Happy Fourth of July weekend. Be safe. Remember NOT to stick your face or fingers near lit fireworks…that will not produce a good outcome. Really.
I wish for you all a weekend with family, friends and lots of good food.
Avoid spoiled eggs and hair fires!!!
