Blog, Interrupted!

Blog, Interrupted!

You guys! Just when I was about to make my grand bloggin’ comeback after joining the amazing Peaceful Posse of bloggers, my 3yo got sick.  Like puking-in-the-middle-of -the-night kind of sick last Tuesday.  That’s how it started, anyway. I was supposed to work 13 hrs last Wednesday and again on Thursday, but staying home to take care of the kids was a bigger priority.  When you’re sick (at least when you were little), don’t you just want your mama? I actually have a very strong immune system and hadn’t been sick in over a year (thank you, Plexus!), but I also got hit with it and was down for the count for a few days.  It hit me as pure exhaustion, probably from getting roughly 26 hrs of sleep every week, week after week.  Oh, and said three-year-old sleeping with me and breathing in my face all night- getting coughed and sneezed on. I was so tired for a few days, I can’t remember when I have slept so much.  Like 12 hrs a day including naps.  And I never nap! It’s been years, no lie.  Oh, and I had a killer sore throat.  I thought it was strep but it turns out we all had Influenza B.  Tested and certified.  It wasn’t fun.    My poor babes had very high fever, deep chest congestion and body aches all over.  It makes you feel really helpless. Blogging was the furthest thing from my mind.  Forgive me?! lol. I did read threee books, however.  I’ll tell you about ’em in another post.

So enough about the sickness.  I need to give my blog a makeover.  In the past 12 years I have probably had 137 different banners and color schemes going on this blog.  The power of Photoshop is amazing, right? I like to keep things new and fresh.  Unfortunately, I no longer have Photoshop and lack of blogging over past couple of years has left me stuck with this same banner for waaaaaaaaay too long.  I need to do something about that, and pronto. Any ideas of how I can do a cool banner without Photoshop?? Help a sista out.  Thanks 😉

Hopefully everyone is doing well!! Have a beautiful day

  1. Sorry to hear you all got hit with the flu ick! I’ve heard it was a nasty strain this year and even affected folks who got the shot! Glad you’re on the mend now! As for blog banners, I hired a gal to do mine, so I don’t have great suggestions, but I know that she designs with Canva, so that might be worth looking into. And that sunrise picture is gorgeous!!

  2. Hi! I’m just finding my way over here via the Peaceful Posse. I’m sorry for the bout of sickness hanging around your house. That’s no fun!

    I do almost all of my graphic designing through Canva and PicMonkey. Mostly I use PicMonkey to edit photos and then Canva to put together the actual graphics. Both can be used for free, but of course PicMonkey charges for the really good stuff. Good luck!

  3. Goodness! That sickness that ran through your house doesn’t sound like a fun time. Not at all. Hope you’re all feeling MUCH better!

    I second what Karen said. I’d try canva for a banner.
