Good morning, friends. You may have noticed that we’ve redecorated a bit. It’s progress, people. Albeit, one that will be taking some more work, but things are definitely moving. Finally.
Have you ever heard the age-old adage, “The cobbler’s children have no shoes?” I can certainly relate with this bit of wisdom. I have been waiting for a more personal website on which to publish my blogs for many months now, following a very exuberant promise by my web developer-by trade husband that one would be delivered promptly.
When I firsttoyed with the idea of blogging Jer had all kinds of grandiose ideas. He said, “Oh, I could do this…”, “Hey, maybe we could add something like this…”, “I’ve always wanted to try something like…” and it went on and on. By the end of our conversation I was underthe impression that every dream I ever had would be met.
Fast forward nine months.
We are finally getting some shoes around here. Or websites. Sorry, I got a little caught up in my metaphor. Jeremy has decided to focus on me and my tech needs a little bit (after months and months of subtle hints…okay, some not so subtle) and I couldn’t be happier.
Like any kind of change there will undoubtedly besomehiccups along the way. One of the problems with having a technologically savvy husband is that we tend to speak different languages. I speak English and he, well, Geek Speak. This presents some difficulty when attempting to “work together.”
He says, “Blah blah blah megabytes blah blah blah Internet router.”
I respond, “Huh?”
He says, “I said, ‘blah blah blah URL blah blah blah bandwidth?”
I respond, “Um, yes. Definitely, yes.”
And it continues in this ugly pattern until one of us gives up, utterly frustrated with the other. So, yes. There will be some hiccups. I daresay I dohave enough faith that our marriage will withstand this web-centric metamorphosis. Hopefully.
We are certainly open to constructive criticism, as long as it tends towards the “you are absolutely wonderful at what you do and I see no need for anything to change,” type. Yep, we’re super evolved around here.
In all seriousness, if you have anything to add which might further along this blog makeover, don’t be afraid to share. I promise it’ll be fine. It’s possible I could get a little snarky and a tad bit offended but it’ll all be worth it in the end. For all of us. Especially me. 🙂
On a sidenote ~ our roadtrip to meet Pioneer Woman was fantastic and that woman is even cooler in person than I thought possible! I will be blogging about that experience very soon!
Keepin’ it real,
