Changing Stripes

I'm having a bit of a design crisis. 

I like the sleek, modern look of Blogger's new dynamic views but I dislike the lack of control, most notable that you can't use a stat counter. It also removes formatting for the post summaries; mixing in photo captions, without context, in with the text body; rendering most of my text summaries totally unintelligible.

For the moment, I have the background black but since I have hundreds of posts with dark grey text, meant to be visible against the pink my blog has been dressed in for years, I doubt I'll stay married to this high maintenance look.

I'll think on this darker look a bit more but some older post just aren't compatible with the modern Blogger and you simply can't change the text color anymore.

Anyway, if you just have to read an old post that appears blank - just highlight it. You'll probably find all the secret messages I use to leave for friends and enemies in hidden text to catch them googling themselves.

My blog's 8th aniversary!

I can't believe I missed my October 6th blog anniversary!

It's harder and harder to find time for this old friend of mine. I thought I was busy eight years ago with my lawyer husband, four homeschooled kids and two dogs in a cabin out in Big Arm, MT.  Now I have six homeschooled kids, four dogs, forty chickens and frankly, just being the wife of the Oath Keeper guy is a full time job by itself.

 Poor baby stayed out in the cold all night
Hopefully this year we'll add goats and sheep to the mix, as well, and at 40-something I am toying with the idea of one more round in the baby department. I do wish I was a few years younger though, but don't we all.
So much to rant about and generally my sarcastic snippets are more likely to be vented in short bursts on Reddit and Facebook than in a drawn out post.

Well, here's to eight more years of nonsensical, disorganized bitching.
