Oops! Your Patience Is Needed…


Yours truly decided that she was going to give this blog a complete make-over. In the process, I seem to have installed some items which did not work well with my format and seems to have scrambled … or just deleted…. many things on this website.

Basically, I got a bit over-motivated and broke my site. 🙁

I am working with wordpress to correct these ‘issues’ as quickly as just is possible. Please be understanding. We will find a way to get things back to normal soon!

Thank you 🙂

I. am. an. idiot.



That moment when…


… You decide to edit and customize your blog page, only to revisit and discover you have posted tagged posts as features instead of moving them into the new page you created. And you never even knew you could do rolling features on the front page header menu!

So, just in case there’s anyone out there ‘in the know’ that would be willing to help a lady out; I’ve added 3 new pages, assuming they should be category pages. The last time I did this was many months ago and I can’t for the life of me remember how I did it. My issue at this point is – I can’t find the place, or the way, to place the title tag in so that all my posts under that tag will transfer to the new page category.

Help, please? Anybody?

Thanks in advance

New -old home purchase fail: -30 out and the pipes freeze…

That moment when something in the house has gone terribly wrong and you realize…for certain this time, that you don’t know what the hell you’re doing.

Yes. This happened. This morning actually. Woke up freezing, went to the kitchen to make the coffee and …oh, wait…oh, no…..! Turned every faucet in the place on just to hear the same ole gurgling. NOT.COOL.

Fortunately, I have some bottled water and enough in the water boiler to  heat up for washing. We took the electric radiator to the basement to warm the solid ice pipes. Which, after about 10 hours actually started to work. Splutter slat went the pipes…and we were so excited! Yay! Water! Then some crunching sounds and water everywhere. The meter ruptured. So now, here I sit – fingers, toes and everything possible crossed that the water guys will be here ASAP to fix this thing.

I love this place. I really do. But I am learning on a monthly basis that I was in no way mentally prepared to purchase and older home where I’m responsible for everything, while romanticizing the idea of renovating it to my specific tastes. It will happen, yes. And I cannot wait! But for now I could gladly read a home repair for dummies book.

Does anyone have any advice on how to prevent this in the future?

Thanks for reading!
