The More You Know

Well, I have researched what is going on with my yummy stuff blog.
It's in blog purgatory.
Or my domain is.

It expired and I can't get in to renew it.
Some guy told me how to get in.
Which was no help at all.
In fact, he has told many people the exact same thing.

I know my username.
I know my password.
I know I am screwed!

But, anyway...
Once it "expires" it goes into purgatory
and it stays there while they give you a period of time to renew.
After that, it will go up for auction.
If no one finds that name valuable enough to buy, it will be "released"
and I can get it back.

So, in conclusion, it will stay a blogspot until other arrangements can be made.

All this because I didn't want it to automatically renew.
I wanted to control when I paid to re-up it.
What was I thinking?

I know
I know.
I've taken the train to Crazytown.

I will not be back anytime soon.

I am No Accountant

It seems so simple and yet it's not.

It also helps when you don't forget to write down a few sizable debits.
To me, anything more then $10 counts as sizable.

My horoscope lady- you know, Bethea. That lovely lady that sends you horoscopes and offers that will make your dreams come true- tells me that I was born on the date that says I should be rich.

Which, I should be!

Because, if I had a lot of money, it really wouldn't matter if I forgot to write down a hundred dollars worth of stuff in my checkbook.
I'd have it and I'd be OK.
I wouldn't have to dread going to the mailbox and finding non sufficient funds notices that are $23 a piece.

Maybe the bank won't notice.

A girl can dream, can't she?

Or, hope desperately that they will realize that it was a mistake and times are tough for everyone and forgiving is just the right thing to do.

It Gives You Pause

But, then you stop and think.
You remember that really overly large man mentioned in "Ripley's Believe It or Not" that was buried in a piano case because he wouldn't fit in a casket.
That leads to realizing that they make XL size caskets these days so they would have to have XL size vaults to seal the caskets and so they probably need a little extra room in the plot.

In conclusion, I don't think the person that came up with this knew what the hell they were talking about.

But, it sounds nice.

I've been prodded a little by Robyn and Jenny that I haven't posted anything new in a while.
I didn't realize it had been so long.

I guess the biggest news that has happened has been the twins.
My niece had her boys.
She went into the hospital at just under 32 weeks and they were able to stop her labor.
So, the insurance company wanted her to go home and a couple days later her water broke.
By that time, she was 33 weeks so the babies were in NICU for a couple weeks.

They were able to come home last week.

In other news, baby steps that I thought I was making with my sister must have been all in my head.
Maybe she was just being polite and I read more into it.
My niece has told me over and over again that she is not the same person.

I got very upset over our last exchange, which had to do with a joke that she took wrong.
She got nasty and hung up on me.
Which is OK to do, because I, apparently, have been not so nice to her in the past.
She did apologize for overreacting, but I am just tired of all of it.

But, I am good.
Just have to get it all behind me.

What else?
Helping my daughter practice her driving.
She went through driver's ed, but they are still going to make her do a drive test.
They signed the certificate that way before she even completed all of her drive time, which pissed me off.
I understand making her drive if she needs it, but I don't understand not allowing her to do all of her time before deciding.

I got my garden planted and it is looking pretty good.
I won't get to work in it today, as it stormed pretty good last night and it's very wet.

My Yummy Stuff blog is giving me grief.
I had trouble renewing the domain name so it went back to a blogspot and google doesn't appear to be allowing me to just buy it again as new so in order to get my domain name back, I will have to move. Which is fine, but it still appears to be showing as a registered name.
And the search is not working and the recipe pages aren't right so I need to remove them and start over.

On a bright note, I did buy a 12.5 kg (27.5 lbs) container of cocoa powder.
It's a good thing I am a storage container hoarder.
