Change is in the air! (and my first Thursday Thirteen!)

Some of you have clicked through to my main domain www.taderdoodles.com and most of you have probably noticed that not much has changed in a while. That’s because constantly updating the html was becoming a pain in the tush. I finally took a little time to start working on it again and it is once again in the process of reconstruction. I’m trying to find something wonderful for the new year. Something that I can really do what I want with. Unfortunately this whole process (now being redone for the fifth time) has served to remind me that I picked the wrong hosting package and probably should have gone with the hosting company I had two years ago, instead of this new one.

I’m sure deep down they are a great host. I’ve had NO downtime and that’s a great thing. They offer lots of free extras. But after spending some time with customer support yesterday I really had to fight the urge to slap someone. I had inquired about deleting the whole site and taking it back to the default setup, so that I could start over. They said I could delete the added files one by one. AGH! There have been a lot of things I have messed with over the past six months and I wanted it all put back the way it was!

At 5 am this morning, I found the magic delete and restore button all by myself. I am now in the process of starting over. Why I am even attempting to do this the week before Christmas I don’t know. I have a ton of other things I need to do, and I have resolved to start on them no later than 7 am this morning! If I don’t then I’ll be pulling an all nighter tonight.

On a lighter note! I’m still a Top Momma but I need your help to stay there! See the Top Momma graphic on the right? PLEASE click on it…. I’ve lasted a little over a day so far, but I don’t want the fun to end yet! Besides, there are a lot of other great Top Momma’s on there, you might find something fun and new!

    I think these last few days half of the population of the US is running through Wal-Mart…at the same time. There just aren’t enough check outs open to service everyone.

    Merry Christmas and Happy TT

    Drilleraa-

    I dread going in there! I’m trying to figure out if I could hit the local grocery store instead, but I can’t remember what I wanted to get!

    Bloggers-

    I totally hide snacks… I am thinking that eating straight from the can of frosting might not be the best for me… oh well…:)

    Sniz-

    I heart homeschooling!! So happy to find another HSing mom!

    Thanks for popping in everyone!

    Kat, Sandee, and Nicholas! Thanks for stopping by!

    I did make the Walmart run today! Helped someones hubby pick out some toothpaste for his wife (bet I’ll never get to do that again!) Wasn’t too bad until I checked out…. there were SIX registers open… that’s it! SIX!! Unbelievable! I almost took my handful of things to the auto counter to check out!

    Sometimes I wish I lived near a bigger city, so I could have choices…

    I know just what you mean about fiddling with websites and wanting them just so. I got round the HTML effort by installing WordPress on my blog last January…and now I have a whole bunch of blogs. πŸ˜‰

    Why is everyone always so hectic at this time of year… It’s not like we have twelve months of not being able to do any of these things is it??? LOL
    Oh well, I guess it will be the same next year and we all love it…

    Have a great 2008!
