Austin, Jackson, and Lexington are playing baseball this season. Savannah is playing softball now. Tomorrow all 4 of them have games at the same time at different fields across town. I'm still trying to figure out how we're going to get to all the games.
Wait a minute--in all the amusement this almost got by me--do you really drive a truck? I mean, how do you fit six kids in a truck?
I actually drive a van. Brooklyn has just called it a "truck" for some time. I think I've finally taught her to say "van" now!
What program do you use to edit your movies? My program doesn't do the cool titles yours does.
That provided a good laugh. I have a question for you - how's it going with your on-line surveys? I'd love to hear an update and if it's still worth it.
OK, I've gotta be honest here. I don't have a clue what you're talking about. Of course, that's not saying much since I'm clueless about a lot of stuff these days.
I recently started a blog for my family and friends to see, but I can't figure out the *cross out the word* thing that you do . I can do it in my word program, but when I copy and try to paste it over, it doesn't have the crossed out words there. I know this is such a random and of the subject thing, but I AM SO CURIOUS!!! AND I CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT!!!
OK, before the word you want crossed out, type "<" then type "del" then type ">". Then after the word you want crossed out, type < /del >. That will draw a line through the word. I used some spaces and quotation marks in my example so the word wouldn't really get crossed out. Just omit the spaces and quotation marks when you do it.
Dawn I was wondering how the Feingold diet is working for you this time around?
Well, it doesn't work as well as the medication he was on as far as helping him to slow down and control himself. However, it also doesn't give him high blood pressure like the medication did, so we're dealing with it. It's a good, healthy diet for anyone to follow, but I won't lie and say it's easy. It's time consuming, expensive, and it can be hard to stick to sometimes. Avoiding temptation at a birthday party, for example, is difficult for a kid. It does have its drawbacks. Still, all in all, if you can afford it, cutting out artificial additives and preservatives is a good thing. Jax (and Clay for that matter) are much calmer, and more focused and in control than without the diet.
How much time do you spend in a week writing and posting the comments on your blog? Is it a full-time job?
Hmmm, that's a good question and I'm not sure how to answer. I write most of my posts really quickly. In general, it takes me 30 minutes or so to write a blog post. When I do a SSO, it takes me quite a bit longer because I have to go through a week's worth of comments to find the questions before I can answer them. Also, when I do a post like the one with the Mother's Day ideas, it takes a long time because I have to research and find ideas and insert a bunch of links and pictures into my post. Those usually take several hours. As far as approving comments, that doesn't take long at all. I quickly read through all of them and click "approve". Between that, book writing, and going through buckets of email, I'd say I spend maybe 20 hours a week or so on blog related stuff.
The movie is Steel Magnolias and the character is Wheezy!!!
LOL! OK, not to make fun of this, but it struck me as funny (probably because I watch too much kiddie and old TV)
This is Wheezie.
This is also Weezy.
However, Shirley MacLaine's character in Steel Magnolias was Ouiser Boudreaux.
How very sad that I even know this. Oh, if only I could send all this useless info to the recycling bin in my head, I'd free up so much more memory space. Then perhaps it wouldn't take me a whole week to remember to give my daughter lunch money.
Just wanted you know my husband is not happy with you. Because of you I am now addicted to blogging. You were my first and and now I can't stop. Any suggestions on what I should do?
Get a new husband?
What is the highest number of hits you've had in one day on your blog?
Nope, that's not a typo. This was right after the Pokemon card auction ended. I went from 5-10 hits a day to 94,000. I was totally freaking out and I don't think I ate or slept for a week after the auction ended. I didn't leave my computer at all. I got more than 10,000 emails from people that week. It was insane.
A few people asked me how they could find the products listed on my mother's day post here. I think I've fixed all the links so they should work now.
You still have time to enter the Lands' End giveaway here.
