So, you may have noticed that things look a little different around here. I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I wanted to attempt to makeover the ol' blog. For the record: I did not, in fact, make it over. I found someone to do it for me. Someone who is much more talented than I. Someone who (most likely) did not have to spend 3 hours trying to get some page element to move over 1/3 of an inch to the right. Who is this genius, you may ask?! Why, it's Kim at 733 Blog Design! (insert applause here)
What do you think of the new digs?
I did, however, do the photos in the banner. Well, and by "do the photos" I mean I arranged them and Hubby actually took them. So pretty much, I "did" them. Anyway, that was a fiasco in itself. To be honest, it is so incredibly difficult to take decent photos with crap lighting, but we tried to make it work. The fiasco part was the addition of Kitty. Why would I think that anything involving Kitty would go smoothly? We had a sheet hung so you couldn't see our insanely blinding orange wall (see photo in the sidebar for photographic evidence...the other walls opposite of these lovely orange beauties are red...I still can't believe we never painted when we moved in. Sigh.). Well, Kitty refused to stand on the sheet. She really wanted to be BEHIND the sheet though. And she also wanted to attack it, and "surprise" us by jumping out and attacking us. Except we weren't surprised at all, because she is a cat behind a white sheet. And she didn't jump out at all, because the sheet was too long. So basically, she just moved the sheet forward, and then got her claw caught in it and couldn't move. So she sat there with her paw stuck in the sheet and purred for like 7 minutes.
Please excuse the quality of the photos...we didn't have time for things like "focusing". We were too busy being baffled.
I'm Amy, and I'm a Mommy with nary a clue as to how to do this whole "parenting" thing. As a former traveler, I view this as another journey, although this time without a map, a plan or a clue! We call Canada home.
