Last night and today I’ve been working on the webpage for the Woodland Area Christain Home Educators and very proud of what I accomplished! However, only members can access the work I’ve done — so why am I telling you this? Cause I’m still proud of it! LOL
I’m also working on updating Eric’s section of the website – found some neat graphic sets for him – I’ll post the link when it’s ready to be viewed.
On the downside, I found out I was not pregnant (why do I do this to myself)…and maybe it’s an upside since I’m not sure what the hormones would do to me with the grief that I am experiencing still. DH watched a video tape from Thanksgiving that Abby & Susan (BIL & SIL) gave us that features quite a bit of Josh – sleeping on Grandma O, babbling, crying, playing with Grammy. I thought I wanted to watch it but it was so hard I had to get away from it. The video is very good quality and I’m so thankful for it. But I wanted to hold him so much. It just doesn’t seem fair at times. I wouldn’t wish this pain on anyone….but I wish….oh, how I wish….that it wasn’t us that this happened to! 🙁
Ok y’all – I need accountability! Here is what I need to do to get my website back up and running smoothly. In no particular order:
Update Joshie’s memorial page – adding letters excerpts, DHs email and Joshie’s picture
Update J1, J2 & J3’s pages – photos?? security??
Check all internal links are working properly
Check all external links are working properly
Start work on updating pages for Kitchen and uploading
Find all membership plaques and get uploaded
Update Website Mommie buddy pages
Updated ‘Our Story’ page
Most people reading this blog know that many years ago, when I first got online, I was a pastor’s wife who was desperately lonely. And, so I started an email list called, PastorsWives. Though I’m no longer apart of the email list or the website, much of my heart is still there with those ladies.
Today, I was send the following link via email: Celebrating the 5th Anniversary of PastorsWives – It’s so great to realize I had a part in this!
My sister and I are a great team – she is the baker and I’m the cleaner! LOL Today Beth and her kids came over for lunch and to visit – gosh, I wished she lived closer so it could happen more often! But at least we are within two hours of each other! Anyway, after lunch, we made some Rice Crispy Treats. And, we had an epiphany! As I’m demanding that we count out 80 marshmellows – we realized that maybe I don’t like to cook because I don’t let myself enjoy it! LOL
Actually I do like to cook – once I’m comfortable with the recipe. But otherwise I worry too much and stress out! So, we had a good time and lots of laughs! It was a good memory.
Too tired to write more! ‘Night all!
I’m officially brain dead! Got up early….and many hours later I can finally sit down and know that my daily quiet time, chores, homeschool lessons and MUCH more are done! Now I’m sitting here at this computer trying to get my brain cells to fire up so that I can work on the webpage. So many pages have been lost in the move! I KNOW they are on my computer, but I can’t find them! Argh!
One section of the site that I’m excited about is ‘Amy’s Kitchen’ which will feature all the hospitality/entertaining links that used to be on the Pastors’ Wives site as well as my favorite holiday/everyday and special day recipes. My DH and I love special days and this will be a great way to share what we love! BTW, my friend Tammie did all of the initial work on these pages for the PW site – and has a great website herself. I hope you check it out!
OK…maybe my brain cells need chocolate! Yeah, that’s probably it! LOL
