Sunny Saturday SNAGS

Photobucket

Halfway through the long weekend. I mustered up the courage to migrate my last journal which happens to be my very first one created Oct 5, 2005; A Day in the Life. I'm sure many of you never knew it existed but that was my baby; my first attempt at telling the internet my story; my life. I couldn't even add a graphic and had no readers when I started. I actually wasn't worried at that time. I just loved to hear myself talk on "paper." My current journal was born from my PSP addiction in December of 2005. I kept them both up and running but it became far too much. I actually used this graphics journal as a semi-private one because my children never paid attention to it.

Day in the Life got shelved because my son blew my cover. That's when I made the decision to add the chitchat to the graphics and merge them. My last entry in DIL was Nov 2007. I wiped the dust off of it and migrated because I didn't want to lose it. I didn't realize just how much it meant to me. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it....archive it or add entries to it. I actually have 4 readers here for that one. Oh, decisions. I procrastinate and hate to make them.

I got my hair done today. Dark black with red chunks and spiky. Yikes that is one big old head. My kids think I'm narcissistic posting so many pictures of my sorry old self.

So, my BF and I tried to get out for a bit last night. It's been five weeks since his surgery but it was a wee bit too much. People kept bumping his leg with all the grafts taken out of it. We did make it about an hour. I come home because he was sore as could be and needed to get some sleep.

Becky hasn't texted me today which is a good sign. She texts me pretty much non-stop when she is stressed or upset. I hope and pray each day for my child.

Last but not least, I am so thoroughly disgusted with that car of mine. It is in the shop every month. I just had the calipers repaired the day before my BF's surgery. I come out of the beauty shop and my service engine light was on today. Blah...grrrr. It has something to do with emissions. If it's a sensor, I don't think the warranty covers it. I swear that I can pick them. 32,000 miles on the darned thing. I would trade it in but dang I'd probably get another doozy anyway.

Today is lovely. Tomorrow is supposed to be also. I haven't walked yet so I need to get my butt in gear. Maybe tomorrow...lol. My son is at a bachelor party so the house is quiet. Hugs to all......CHRIS

Hey Chris don't tell your kids but we like seeing your picture and the new hairdo's, lol. It's been beautiful here too really warm and the sun shining bright. Wish it would stay that way.

D said...

great tags... and I love your hair!!!!! I wish I could do something different with mine.. way too much curl. My journal won't migrate.. grrrrrr AOL and blogger can't get it to either.. so I know it's not me. I think it's the size. Oh well.. wondering how much room we actually have here on blogger...

Indigo said...

I felt the same way when I was able to save Raven's Lament. There are so many struggles and parts of me throughout those pages. Glad to hear Becky is doing better. I absolutely love your hair. I'm in between right now, trying to grow it back out after having it pixie short for a few years. Paul is loving the longer locks, me? it's a pain in the ass, but yeah I am too. (Hugs)Indigo

ELLIE said...

I for one love love the hair do - very cool!!!
I also imported my old journal - just too much history there - I am just using it as an archive...I like the idea of being somewhere new and having a new start!!!
have a BEAUTIFL weekend!

love your hair!! I remember that first journal of yours!! that's the one I started following

so glad Becky didn't text you today; I'll call that an answer to prayer (thank you Lord) that she's doing a bit better; perhaps the medicine is starting to kick in?? they do keep us on our knees don't they?

betty

Pamela said...

Hi Chris - Rose over here on the West Coast. Your hair looks fabulous, and I love your tags. It's our Canadian Thanksgiving week-end, so I'm popping in and out trying to get caught up with everyone. I have PSP, but it is totally foreign to me. Just using it for my photos. Glad that your archives managed to show. Now I have plenty of reading to catch up on! Do take care~*

Tina said...

i don't want to go private with the new blog, but I also don't want my cover blown. I guess I will just pick fairly safe topics.
and I like your hair! I like to do stuff with color like that too!

bookncoffee said...

Your graphics are pretty. I guess I will keep trying to change over my journal but it just won't migrate so far. I think because it is 5 years and an older one. So the copying and pasting continues of the entries that mean the most. I'm not copying the daily chatter - just the milestones and only 1.5 years to go.

Joan said...

thank you for the advice about the blue witch will try that. Love your hair it looks great. Its always the same when you are getting over surgery someone or a pram always get you. Love Joan.

Teresa said...

Your hair looks great! :) I'm glad the BF is healing, tho I'm sorry he still gets tired so quickly..that's to be expected after what he's been through physically as well as mentally. This to shall pass and it will be better.
I've migrated my "Remembering to Exhale~" blog over here too ~ I wanted a new beginning so I started the "Shadows of the Moon" blog...but the old one is here too.
I miss the alert system of AOL Journals, I'm sure I'll get used to this one in time. I also miss my ability to use more graphics in my sidebar.
Blessings* Teresa

Hollie said...

I love the new hair do.... Sorry about your night out! I hope there's nothing much wrong with your car.

Terri said...

Love your new "do"...it's so cute! Keep posting those pics girl..we love looking at em' you know that..

Glad you and your b/f were able to get out for awhile...

I remember your first journal, wow we've all been together for so long...

Hugs!
Terri

Gerry said...

I love that photo of you. I think it is beautiful. Please dont stop posting them. I post so many people must think she is so vain, but I don't care. My nieces post endless photos of their new babies on the family site, but we are lucky if we get one of them. If you don't see that person a photo is next best thing!

Julia said...

I love your hair. Post away on the pictures. I am having a hard time reading all your entry because some is the same color as the back ground almost. It looks great through. Glad your BF is healing up.

Brittany said...

I LOVE your hair! Right now mine is half black and half brown...I had been dying it black for so many years that i can't lift it...i have to just grow it out...It sucks!

I'm never touching black hair dye again LOL.

Julia said...

OK the black text is easier to read but still goes all the way to the side. If you minimal it do all your tags shrink? I guess I didn't notice any difference with mine. Maybe try bold on the fonts also. Still love the hair

Sharon said...

Oh I love the graphic and your hair is gorgeous! So sorry to hear your night out was cut short...maybe next time. At least he's able and willing to get out and about.

Missie said...
