Cause I'm Slow!

I went ahead and changed my template to give it a Thanksgiving look even though Halloween isn't over yet (but it's near enough what with all the candy hanging out in this house). I'm as slow as molassas on a winter day and I have to do things the hard way.

It's also almost time for NaBloPoMo to begin and I figured I'd better get things set here so I'd be closer to the starting line. I had a little picture link over in the sidebar there but I lost that when I changed templates and danged if I can find another to replace it as easily as I did that one. I also can't remember how I even got that other one on there. I'll just have to try to remember to put a little icon or something up with each post in November (if I can figure that out) so ya'll know I'm a participate.

I could do a lot of the web stuff before Blogger came up with this new fangdangled stuff. I know they changed stuff just so they could mess with my mind!

So. What do ya'll want me to ramble on about in November?


The Halloween carnival at the school last night was so crowded that I could barely concentrate on my Bingo card. I'm going to blame the conditions on my not winning even one bingo game, mainly cause I don't want to admit that I'm probably the unluckiest Bingo player on the planet. The last time I won playing Bingo, I was in the 5th grade and I gotta tell you good people, that was a LONG time ago!

Zach's homeroom class had this little game going on. He came home wet and cold cause he just had to volunteer to get smashed in the face with wet sponges. His teacher even took a turn at being a target. They sure had a lot of fun trying to earn money for their room.

Nice background, Brenda! I too had problems with trying to change my template and I lost all of my widgets. I wasn't sure how to get them back, so I started again from scratch and only use Blogger templates. Even though they are kind of boring, at least I keep my widgets about me. That sounds funny doesn't it? And oh. My back doesn't hurt because most of the time, I'm just slinging the bag into a shopping cart! If I'm going to be out for a long period of time, I have to switch to a much smaller bag and leave the bigger one locked in the car. Happy Tuesday! I am participaing in NaBloPoMo too and haven't the faintest idea what I'm going to talk about, but I started trying to post once a day in October - for practice. Some days, I will probably just use a photo. Go to the NaBloPoMo front page and you can search for badges and/or widgets to get yours back.

I like the new autumny look. Makes me feel bad 'cause I never do anything to my site. It's always just a white background. As far as November, just keep posting those great pictures. I love watching all the children in your family as they grow up. I've been reading your blog for a very long time.

Maybe next month when I'm actually laid off and have time, I'll experiment. I'm so looking forward to being home - especially over the Thanksgiving to New Year's time. I may go back to work part time later, but the longer I think about it, the less likely it becomes. Time will tell

You always make such a great spot here, Ms. Brenda. It looks loverly!!

The last time I won at Bingo, about the same age as you, was at the officer's club on the base; I won a six pack of beer and my dad gave me two dollars for it. :)
