Moving Monday AND You Might Be From Nebraska If …

Well, I think that my website move is under way.  Sorry to do another post on this topic, but this process was more complicated then I thought it would be.  Picking a webhost just might be harder than picking out new paint or furniture!  Anyway, the only reason I am telling you this is because I will not be able to write again on here until the transfer is complete in 24-72 hours.  (That’s a LONG labor!)  Hopefully I will be up in time to do my give away tomorrow!  If not, I will be back as soon as possible!

For now, ponder calming effect of this picture … Don’t you want to just go to Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center with a picnic basket and a good book or two?  I do.  But as my kids are about to wake up, I am thinking this will not be happening!

My husband was teasing me that the picture that I used last night of the Nebraska dirt road seemed to say “Dead End.”  That was not what I was exactly going for when discussing the move of my blog to a new ip address. 🙂  Peace and tranquility is more of the image I was hoping would appear!

Since all of this computer stuff has stressed me out a bit.  I was definitely in need of a laugh.  Someone posted this on the internet from an e-mail that was circulating awhile ago.  Normally I would just link you to the page, but I am not sure that I trust that site.  So, instead I am going to copy and paste.  Hope you enjoy the list!
