Getting a complex!!!

Those little voices in my head were saying things like "your blog really sucks", and "apparently NOBODY reads it" and "nobody even WANTS your smelly socks and yarn!" Fortunately, Dianne let me know that she had tried 3 times to post a comment this week... I had wondered why even SHE hadn't commented, especially after kindly mentioning the giveaway on her site.

Ya see, USUALLY Blogger sends me an email that I've received a comment... but they missed most of them! I had a backlog of comments in a folder that I'd never even seen and therefore hadn't published! SORRY if you're one of those commenters, I do hope you'll re-visit and keep commenting!

I've had a real love-hate relationship with computers lately... I lost the hard-drive on my HP laptop before the holidays, then found that Carbonite hadn't been doing my online backups as planned for the past year (gulp, I still can't even fully think about it). I bit the bullet and bought a MacBook and have mostly LOVED it.... but I'm also dealing with the learning curve of a whole new way of doing things AND the daily realization of something else that is lost from my old hard drive...

So, this little piece of blogosphere that connects us isn't perfect after all! But I do love it, the ability to express my thoughts and share some creations and a bit of my life... and I appreciate you letting me know that somebody out there is reading it from time to time. If you haven't already noticed, I've extended the sock and yarn giveaway until Friday at noon and will include 1 comment from each person in the drawing.
Pin It Now!

I too was one of the 'late ones,' to purchase a Macbook and LOVE it !!! It definitely is a huge leap from something dealing with Windows Software, but oh, so worth it !!!

The opening picture is hilarious and I feel that way sometimes. :) So happy I found your blog through Dianne

I had tried to leave a comment and thought I just didn't know how. I love reading your blog. Keep on sharing. Jane B.

So glad to hear the comment problem is worked out. I was beginning to think that for some reason you were rejecting me. :-( I am also glad to learn you will select only one of my comments. I posted three and would love to have the extra chances to win, but don't really think that is fair. I so enjoy your blog - and the photos! :-)

I love that photo!

I wondered why I never heard back. I hope we weren't all going into spam. I know I had to keep my settings pretty open so that I wouldn't lose anyone and fortunately I haven't received many bad posts.

ps - LOVE the silly photo! Don't enter me in the drawing all I ever do is shrink alpaca socks accidentally!
