Today I am thankful for blog friends. I got an email from Nicki today saying that she would be willing to work on fixing all of my picture fiasco with me. How nice is that? Seriously?!? She has plenty going on in her busy life so of course I said I wouldn't make her face that awful task with me, but I was just floored by how kind of a gesture it was. And any time I have problems going on, I know that I will get an email from Laurie checking on us. And the other day when my pictures first messed up, the first person to let me know was a dear friend, J, who keeps a much more private blog than I do so I am not going to link to her. She was just making sure that we were okay. I find myself getting so caught up in life and how busy things are and rapidly losing touch with friends that mean a whole lot to me. I am terrible about this. When I feel overwhelmed, I kind of shut down and lose contact with people. I hate that and need to work on it. Anyway, thanks to all of my bloggy friends for your support and love. It is greatly appreciated and everyone who has commented or emailed in the past few days reminded me why I love this blog community so much!
I promise I will stop talking about the pictures, but not quite yet. Can anyone explain to me how the pictures from a few posts back that I have already fixed are still having issues with some of the pictures? The html codes have not changed again, but the pictures are gone again. WHY???? It is really scaring me because I have fixed them but they still aren't working - and they were for a day and then stopped working.
I let Lucy pick out a few balloons today for something fun for her. She and I have been butting heads the past few days. I see the beginning of a rough stage coming on. She is just being a handful lately. She had a monster meltdown this afternoon. Just completely lost it. I have found myself more frustrated with her than normal because of her testing every single thing that I say or ask of her. It makes for some long days. We have been in such an awesome stage ever since Annie came home, but I think that difficult three year old stage is on the horizon. :( So, in order to break the cycle and have some fun just special for Lucy, I let her pick out several balloons from the party store. She loves balloons, so this was definitely something special for her. Unfortunately, the balloons only made her happy for a very short period of time before she just lost it. But, I let her just have her time and then we were able to talk about it and she finished the day totally happy. I swear, a two year old is very complex!
