I would really love this blog thing to work; if only for me to actually have an outlet to jot things down. But I have to tell you, it's trying my patience more than getting the kids out the door in the morning. Eeek, I realize I may be pigeonholing myself as a "mommy blogger". In that case, well, it is what it is cause it ain't what it ain't.
But back to blogging and frustration. I really wish there was a blogging 101 course. That's a lie. What I really wish is to find someone - techie - to come on over and sit next to me and carry out my requests to set the blog up just the way I'd like it. Someone to just show me - I am a visual person and that's how I learn best. Talking talking, blah, blah, blah - too much information! My links all set up just so, a funny or thoughtful saying posted at the top. Today it would read something like: "WTF!" Still here? Sorry about that. That's no way to treat a guest!
The point is I am acutely aware that I have slipped into a generational gap that there may be no extracting myself from and which has nothing to do with age, to a great extent. Sure, I know how to type, and somehow on my computer at work, I am more comfortable. Well what with a Help Desk at my beck and call, how much trouble can I get into? Whatever programs I need at work, I just know them - create a spreadsheet, no prob.
But the Internet has always been just a place for me to look up info, check out ebay and adios! The e-mail thing and I'm done.
Okay now my MIL is on the phone, where can this day go from here? Does someone have a quaalude? Just kidding. Really.
On a separate note, today is the Jewish holiday of Shavuot which simply translates to weeks and is so named because it is celebrated seven weeks after the second day of Passover. As the story goes, this is when the Torah (Bible) was given to Moses - sort of the short version. Litle joke, Moses addressing his fellow Jews after meeting with G-d: "The good news is - I got him down to ten. The bad news is - adultery is still in". Badum dum!
It just may be a sign - I'll open myself up to the possibility of receiving some sort of commandment today - a spiritual message if you will.
Thou shalt not stress about your blog.
