Miscellaneous Ramblings

Somehow I have deleted my post titles... I didn't mean to! I think I did it when I was trying to fix the header at the top of the blog (which I still haven't gotten the way I want it).... anyone know how to manipulate these blogs and can help me with that? I want that "Brend-a-muses" at the top gone and just to have the lovely matching header, which I would change to include "Brend-a-muses" if I could get rid of the other one. I'm sure that makes no sense! But, this blogging can be frustrating. And hopefully I can get my post titles back soon....

Job update: I finished my first week of work! :-) I was a little worried at the beginning of the week because I was working more hours than I had really wanted to... but there was alot to catch up on.... (which I think I have done) and Thursday and Friday I was off by noon... yay! As long as I continue to mostly be there only 4 or 5 hours, I will be happy. I can handle the occasional longer day if there is work that needs to be done.

I like the work okay... it's kind-of boring there, as it's a small company and there's no one to really chat with very much. I know I generally hate people (people in general, no one in particular), but I also need them. Such a contradiction I live. Ha. :-)

Kids update: Last night we went to Krispy Kreme to get their free doughtnuts with their report cards. Jacob actually didn't get any A's (all B's) but the lady gave the girls (who both got all A's except one B each)... two extra each and then gave me and Jacob a box with four! Yum! (I only ate one!)

Sarah has a practice/scrimmage for soccer in the morning. Their tournament is next weekend. Jacob has his last roller hockey game in the morning. And Libby wants to start a "club" with me where we cook together! Libby can't just cook, it's got to be a club. Anyway- I've got to find some things for her to do.... because I don't really want any club memberships for myself at the present time. Ha.

I have a potential blog topic rolling around in my head, but I have been too tired to write anything of importance on here! Maybe soon!!!!

TGIF! (Not sure when I valued a weekend so much as this one!!!)

You could try this for your header, if you haven't already:

On the Layout tab under "configure header," look for "Placement," then click on "Instead of title and description." (NOT "Behind title and description.") That works for mine.

But since you have a template outside of Blogger, it might not work for you...?

Glad your first week of work went well. I'm sure they will love having someone as dependable and organized as you!

I tried that! I am downloading the picture from my computer, not the internet, and then I click the box you said, but when I go back to the blog, the title is still there... and no pretty header. I had to add the header below it as a separate gadget, that is not the header. :-( Poor me.

I'll tell you what- the place I'm working NEEDS someone organized- it's a mess! :-)

I can't help you with your header, unless I was there, on your computer. Unless it is "hands on", I can't think of how. It does look nice anyway - like it is.

Glad to hear that your first week went well, and that you have a new appreciation for weekends!

Wow Brenda - from where I sit, your kids seem perfect. Sports, activities, great grades. I am happy if Jacob passes, (or if he gets no F's!), and Jalyn is always on the honor roll, but nearly ALL A's - not yet. We should see with Joshie. I know, the grass is always greener, right? But they do seem like great kids (easy).
