Happy! Happy! Happy!

Nothing like having things work again after a period of frustration!

I have no idea why or what happened, but I can change backgrounds and add things to the sidebar again. This makes me happy. Almost ridiculously so. Should I be ashamed to admit that?  Photobucket

In the early days of our marriage, I changed furniture around often. It drove Bill crazy. He was thankful the bathroom fixtures were not re-positionable. When we remodeled and enlarged our home, it was a good thing (as Martha would say) but it limited rearranging furniture. Our bedroom is large but the room's architecture and the size and amount of furniture pretty much dictate the bed stays were it has been for years. Living room is dictated by the entertainment center which currently must remain on one wall and our family room is long and narrow which limits anything out there. The room that serves as an office has a huge sectional that only fits one way in the room.

So what is a gal who likes to move things around supposed to do? Get a blog, of course, and change things around there! Photobucket

Whatever was preventing me from doing this for weeks may have actually started right after the previous time I changed things here. Ignorance is bliss though. If I didn't know something was broken, it didn't bother me, but knowing that I couldn't change things was driving me crazy! Aren't we all at least a bit like that?

I just heard yesterday that music CDs may cease production by the end of next year with downloads being our only option. Really? Nobody is going to get rich with the amount of music I purchase a year, but no more CDs? That doesn't feel right to me. By the way, would you like to see my vinyl collection?
For the record, another reason furniture doesn't get moved often anymore is that I am not 20-something. Heck, I'm not even 30 something. I moved some bedroom furniture yesterday to do a top to bottom cleaning. Oy! I was careful not to strain my back, remembering that I wasn't young-something but today...oh my aching arms!
I think I only have enough energy to switch from my summery dishes to my wintry ones with snowflakes on them. We did have snowflakes fall two days ago but mercifully, they did not accumulate on the ground. I've asked Mother Nature to deliver snow on December 23rd and remove it on December 27th this and every future year. I'll let you know how that goes.
Speaking of snow, here is a little snowy humor for you.

Happy, frustration-free wishes to everyone!

CD music business failure is probably my fault! I do have many CD's for embroidery design storage. I mentioned the other day that jump drives for everyone would make great Christmas presents!
