Any chance we can just fast forward to January?

December 6, 2006


Winter funk much?

You see, I am not a fan of December. Husband has tried to convince me otherwise for many, many years (as his birthday is the 15th, ArtsyDaughter’s birthday is the 11th and the whole eight days of presents thing) – but kinda failed.

December, besides being relatively cold (it is Houston, not Chicago after all), has become a month where bad things happen. It’s just downright creepy. I won’t list all the stuff that has happened, but it is, well, not good. Even Husband started to wonder and last year, he purposely scheduled his colonoscopy in January.

Because nothing says Happy New Year like a roto rooter job.


So, for the month of December, I am pretty much a head case. I try to keep it to myself, but occasionally it slips out. Like on to this blog, which I can’t seem to muster the creativity to write on.

I am, however, considering changing the design of this site. I’ve loved the work that Zoot did for me – she is one fun lady to work with – but I’m feeling a little restless and I figure redesigning this site is a little safer than a drastic haircut.

But did I mention I have no design skills or HTML saavy? Yes.

So! Anyone know a good blog designer for an MT-based blog? Recommendations are requested and welcome!

    Being Christian, I loved December through my youth, and even into my early parenting days. Christmas has its magic, even though it has been way over commercialized. But now… I tend to agree with you, December is just a cluster of days loaded with bad surprises. I wish I could help you with your redesign. I know just enough to really fuck things up….

    Here’s to this month being a good one for you! As for the web design… help here. Have you seen mine lately? Thank God for typepad templates.

    If you haven’t found any help with your template give me a shout. I’m certainly not a pro, but I could rig up something for you. But, you would also have to be willing to wait as I doubt I will have much free time between now and the end of January.
