What A Day And Still Not Done!!


Hey Ya'll,

Well, first and foremost, I decided to spend a bit of time to setup my Holiday Theme for the Blog.  What do you think??  I love it.  I found it in Hotlayouts2u.com.  It just spoke to me.  Unfortunately, everything didn't transfer over perfectly, so I had to spend some time tweaking it.  I finally got everything pretty much where I wanted it, except for the section which is usually at the top of my home page, where I can sign in or out and easily access my ability to make a new post!!  So now I have to go into my Profile/About Me to do it.  Oh well, I guess if that is all of my problems, then I will be happy!!

So, as I have stated in an earlier post, I have been totally Stressed out about all the packing we had to do.  We had originally planned on driving our belongings that are to go into our Storage Building up TODAY!!  But the weather turned bad over the Summit, and snow was forecast at the last minute.  So we had to change our plans to drive over tomorrow instead.  So this gave me one extra full day to pack. 

But since our friends Bobtail Truck was getting fairly full, and the sun was going down, they decided to stop loading up and make a possible second trip later on, for the remainder of the Storage Building stuff.  Most of the extra things have been boxed up, but you know how that is....it seems like the less you have to pack, the more crap is laying around which looks like a ton left to pack!  But like I said, most of it is packed up, except for the Kitchen.  But we will just load most of it directly into the RV, and only pack some of it in boxes, but I don't have to worry about it for about a week!!

Now the REALLY HORRIBLE PART of this whole thing is this......after all the rush to get packed, then having to wait until tomorrow, we forgot to contact the Storage Place to get an Access Code to allow us into the Storage Unit.  You see, the last time we were there, we talked with them, and agreed on which unit we wanted, but we were going to wait until we went back up to deliver the "goods" to actually pay for and setup the Storage Unit in our name.  And we originally had planned on going up on Wednesday, not this weekend.  So we DO NOT have an Access Code, and we just realized this tonight and that they are CLOSED TOMORROW!!!  Holy Crap!

Walt called them earlier hoping they would check their voice mail and call back, but so far no call.  If we can't get them to call us back by tomorrow morning (which we highly doubt they will since the Office is closed), we will have to change the day we go up, thus causing problems for all around!!  As our friend uses his Bobtail Truck for work.  Which means that since it is full of our belongings, we may have to pay for him to use a Rental Truck, for who knows how many days!!  And they can't take it up next Friday/Saturday/Sunday as that is when Walt and Mark is supposed to drive down to Mesa to bring back the RV!!  So I am hopeful that they can make it early this week.

Anyway, at least this round of stress, is kind of over.  At least we can relax for a couple of days!  Hence my working on my Christmas Blog Layout!  Now that most of the Furniture is gone, our house sounds like an empty Auditorium!  Because we have no carpeting in the house.  The floors are either Wood or Tile.  And with all of the Furniture out, and nothing on the walls either.  Well...like I said, an Auditorium!! LOL

I have had to push my next Fill Appointment to the end of the Month now!  We want to make sure that we are moved up to the Reno area and moved in.  At least that is the hope.  If not, then it will get pushed back even further!!  And boy do I need this Fill.  So please keep your fingers crossed that this move happens when we want and I don't have to continue to wait, and EAT, EAT, EAT!!  Well, I guess I better stop for now, I need some rest.  So, till next time.....

Aloha My Friends!!  :)

Stunning blog Debi! Wish I understood how to do the 'need to do a bit of tweaking' bit, then I've be brave enough to try it myself...
Lots of luck with your busy life - hope things smooth out quickly for you.

Love the new layout. I wish I could figure out how to make mine pretty with all the other templates. I'm stuck with the Blogger templates and they sometimes are boring.

At least it was a distraction from all the stuff going on. It's great sometimes to get lost out here in blogland for awhile and put off doing other things. Whoops, I have 12 people coming for lunch in 2 hours. Better get my A-- in gear and start some prep. Be well.

Great new layout. Hope you are able to get the move sorted out without too much stress.

Debi said...

Thanks everyone! I love the new layout too!

Caroline, I understand your fear of changing the layout. I used to be terrified too. But I got tired of looking at my old, tired looking one, and with seeing all of the other great looking blogs, I decided to bite the bullet, and go for it! I usually have to tweak it each time I change it, to get all my side bar options where I want them, but it is always worth the effort when I am done! See below for the list of Blog Template Sites that I use. Merry Christmas!!

Sandy, Just start looking at the other sites that have "FREE" Templates you can use for Blogger! These are the Template sites that I currently use:

(this is the one I am currently using, and the Template is called, Merry Christmas!)

I am sure there are others out there, but these are the ones I have found so far!!! I hope that your lunch went well! Merry Christmas!!

Maree, thanks! The move has stalled, but they will take the "Stuff" to the Storage Building tomorrow! Then we will get the RV Friday through Sunday, then the real work begins!! We get to start loading it up to move up to Carson City!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Thank you Lisa!! This layout just makes me smile and yes, relax!! I love the Snowman and the little Polar Bears! And especially the shiny Ornament. What can I say, I have always been a sucker for Bears! Walt can't stand it, but I love to collect them. They make me smile. :)
