New Year, New Blogger, New Problems!


I very dutifully wrote a Christmas blog , complete with a great picture of the Nativity. It was just a few days after Christmas, mind you and was very witty and interesting in my observations on how uncomfortable people get when you aren't PC and say Merry Christmas to them...

Well, I published it and tried it in a new window, but it didn't come up there, but then it doesn't always do that when I publish something on my blog. It generally takes a few days on my computer. I had to get ready to go out of town again, so I didn't have time to check it until yesterday, when, much to my surprise, it hadn't published... No worries, I thought that I would just get it off the postings and republish it.

Well, it is gone....

You heard me.....gone!

The blogger says that I had a posting on Dec. 28th, but it isn't in the old post listings or on the ones that are saved, ready to be published. It has just gone missing... Rather like the other sock from the washer, or that one component that you can't find, but need to put something together. It has joined the black hole of blogs, and is floating between my computer and the "NEW" blogger version....

ARRRRGGGGGHHHHH! I tried to recreate it, but:
1. Its already way past Christmas and will look silly and won't have the right date.
2. It was a brilliant piece of witticism, that was going with my mood and relating the events of the season.
3. I basically can't even remember what I had for lunch yesterday, let alone what I wrote a week and a half ago.
4. I don't even remember the catchy title.

So much for the new google "blogger". This leaves me thinking once again about how we are so quick to replace the old with the new.... Why aren't we just happy with something when its working ok? (sigh) Now I have to figure out how to deal with this new problem.

Luckily my daughter kept her old blogger version intact, and says that she is comfortable with it, and she won't change over.

I guess that there is still hope for me, then, as she won't be turning me in on a new model of a mother....

It's so true--we were just talking last night about how ben got a brand new Treo and they came out with something better and fancier almost the next month, so of course he wants that now. I'm going to be an old fogey and walk around saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

do not despair! you, dear mother, are full of wit, and will probably have enough to replace it with a new one soon enough! and who knows, it might be even better than the last one! so have faith, and press forward, dear woman!

i love & miss you! :)

Maryn, my long lost youngest daughter ....actually wrote a comment on my blog?

(well, she is not long lost, but I haven't seen her since Christmas and I miss her already...)

Thank you, Maryn---you MADE my day!!

(as well as you, Hailey---thank goodness for my family...they keep me feeling good about myself!)

Mom, you need to stop calling me and venting to me about your blog issues because then by the time I read your blog, it's old news! :)

But anyway... Glad you somehow worked it out...
