Pickiness will be the end of me

Good grief! I’ve been playing with the set up of a new blog for hours. Literally. I had it pretty well set up late yesterday afternoon then decided I wanted to look at other theme options. (I can’t even remember why!). In the process, of course, I managed to lose the one I had and by the time I decided I wanted to go back to it, about two hours later, it was gone. Gone.

Ok, this has nothing to do with the post but I saw it while looking for an image related to the post and it just made me laugh! I could use a good laugh right now. So, sue me.

That led to five more hours of trying to find it and trying other theme options. I was dozing at the keyboard when my husband suggested I’d be more comfortable sleeping in bed.

I woke in the middle of the night (I’m always so brilliant then — see my post on how I write best in the middle of the night, even if it’s always just in my brain.) with a clever idea of how to get the original theme back. So, first thing this morning I ran to the computer and, sigh, I’ve been at it for two more hours. No coffee, nothing, just determination to find the bleeping theme that I had before. No luck, obviously.

You know how when time passes you begin to forget the bad and remember only the good? It’s the thing that makes Americans wipe the slate clean for past presidents and celebrities. Well, within a matter of hours of losing the first theme, I’m doing exactly that. The first theme was perfection! The exact header I wanted, nice type style and a readable size, nice colors, perfect column width……..perfection!

Now I can’t settle for anything but that perfect theme. I’m doomed. So is the second blog, probably. Maybe losing that theme is a sign that it wasn’t meant to be, even if I don’t feel like I’m quite ready to give up the search.

I’m going to get some breakfast and coffee, do some laundry, vacuum, get some exercise and then come back and try again.

It’s amazing how picky I can be.



I'm a writer making my way through life and offering observations as I go. Old enough to know better but that doesn't stop me.

  1. Oof. How did you lose the theme in the first place? It must be somewhere. Have you checked under the couch? Eventually, everything ends up under the couch. 😦

    1. Thanks for the best suggestion (and laugh!) I’ve heard all day! Although, my husband says the couch thing is a myth–everything actually ends up behind the dryer. I will check both places immediately.

      In the meantime I just gave up and chose a different theme. The other one, the REAL one, will just live on in my memory!

  2. The theme options are a real problem for me too. Ohhh it’s so hard to decide. Imagine dress shopping with me. I’m a nightmare.

    1. I think I’m busy the day you go dress shopping, sorry! (Actually, I’m probably in the same store, same department, with my fourth armful of dresses, fighting you for the dressing room!

    1. Thanks for saying I’m a good writer…. now if I could just tell myself that on a daily basis. *sigh* I loved the senior picture, too, it made me laugh/snort! As to the theme, I finally settled on Elegant Grunge (I think that’s what it’s called) even though it was not the one I was looking for … alas, perfection evades me yet again. My other blog is call Veggie, Laces, Sugar and Blues and it’s just a journal of my efforts to get healthy again. (With a few senior pictures, no doubt!)
