Bear With Me

I'm trying to figure out how to add more awards to my sidebar and so far, nothing seems to be working. I've tried the tips and hints I received from BuzzardBilly's blog and still no luck. However, I am tired, so maybe tomorrow, with a fresh mind, I'll give it another shot. Couldn't hurt, I suppose.

This one will be quick and maybe not much of anything - considering I have 15 minutes until Survivor comes on - I've set the DVR for American Idol AND Buddy is up here doing his homework and seems to think now is a good time to chat with me about his school needs. Even if it's an emergency, kid, it's almost 8 pm so there's not much I can do about it right now.

Actually, it's just that he needs a new art box because the one he was using won't hold everything anymore. Fine, fine. I'll buy a bigger box. Sheesh.

I was able to get to the Evil Empire today and get my shopping finished. A good friend of mine came with me, which was nice. Even though she didn't need to shop, she tagged along for the ride and we always have a good time.

I feel like I have so many topics I'd like to expound on endlessly, but not enough time. I'd try to do this during the day, but Sissy has decided - for some time now - that naps are for, well, sissies. It's hard to type when a two year old is climbing your leg and you're trying to eat a quick lunch, check your blogs, pay a few bills, etc. Know what I mean?

In the meantime, I added a new recipe to the sister site. I'm adding my favorites as I come across them or make them. I have a couple more I'd like to get up in the next couple of days. Perhaps this weekend I will have a few spare moments to transcribe them to this here computer thingie.

Alright, off to watch Survivor and grab a snack! See ya - same bat time, same bat channel.


  1. I am a computer dud but what I do is right click on the picture or badge that is on whoevers blog, save it to my pictures and then load it up on the sidebar. Works for me but again I am a brainless computer old woman.

  2. Sometime taking a break is all you need to figure it out. I've fought with things forever and walked away and figured it out when I came back clear headed.

  3. I do what Rosemary does. When I go to add the award to my sidebar, I got to Customize, click "add a page element" from the top of the list o' elements that run down my sidebar, I choose picture from the pop-up box, upload the copy of the pic on my PC, click save changes, then drag and drop it to wherever I want it in the list of picture elements on my sidebar. Then save, save and done.

  4. I'll never have to worry about awards - I'm not that good at it..but a wonderful way to vent wouldn't you say!

  5. No clue on the award thing....but hey! once you figure it out, just e-mail me the instructions, mmkay?

    Oh yeah - I use HTML, not widgets, so if you'd just be a doll and figure THAT out for me too, that'd be great.
