Messing around…

At the moment I am messing around with my site working on a new layout, so my blog is down and the site may look a bit wonky for a bit. Please bear with me. Thanks.

I know earlier I said in another post (yesterday) that I wouldn’t be using a new blogging software…I lied. I was going through the pros and cons and decided to go back to using WordPress. I tried a couple of different others, but they were either lacking in the “feature” department or I got a headache trying to set it up. So I am back to using wp. I was using cutenews, but I don’t trust it that much and it lacks many features. So for the next day or two, some of the links won’t work until I get everything transferred.

On the upside, I created a whole new layout! I really enjoy how it looks.

So close…

Here is my Hot Lotto ticket that I bought for Saturdays drawing. I won $4. However, if the 5 had been up on the first line instead of the second line, I would have won $50. *sigh*

Busy, busy, busy…

I’ve been working on the site doing tons of updates to it. There is so much I want to add to the site, but it all takes so much time! I have screen caps, icons, some scripts and other stuff that I plan on adding. I’ve added a few more pages and was looking to add a different blogging tool, but in the end I didn’t like the fact that it didn’t have certain features. Of course it had features that this one doesn’t have…so yeah. One of these days I may take the time to learn how to make a blog from scratch.

Anyways, I just wished I had more time in the day. I am behind in some many projects it just seems like there isn’t enough time in the day.

A different light…

Isn’t it strange how you can think you know someone, but out of the blue, they tell you things that complete change the way you see them? I mean it’s not always bad, it just makes you realize that you can never truly know a person you know? Even when they are your family and you believe you are somewhat close.

Let’s just say, that I’ve learned some things about someone close to me tonight and I kind of see them in a different light. Not in a bad way…just different. It also makes me a bit jealous that I can’t just allow myself to be more open and do the things that she does. I bet I would be happier or at least have more fun out of life. However, it also shows me another aspect of humanity that I am not too proud of and I realize that people really do lie to others and themselves…for those pleasures. On one hand it is kind of surprising, on the other hand it’s not.

Our guest…

So, my oldest sister is staying with us for about a month or until she gets caught up with her bills. I don’t really mind. It’s a bit crowded, but she is family and you help out your family in need. (Well, if you like them of course. ) Her kids our staying at their other grandmothers house for the time being and she is working an extra job to get caught up. She is such a hard worker. She has also been helping around the house, which has been nice of her.

VIP lottery card…

I posted this on another board, but no one noticed or cared, so I’ll post it to my blog for just me I guess. So, I finally got my new VIP Club Lottery card in the mail. I lost my old one and requested a new one, but they told me that I would have to wait since they were transitioning from the old cards to the new barcoded cards and it would take 4 to 6 weeks. That was on March 12th. I got it June 14th….3 months later. Ha!

Anyways, I do like it. Is there anyone else that has a club card from their state and do you get a lot of use out of it? Or do you think they are pointless?
