Ok, I said that I was going to report back on my project from yesterday and you're all welcome to laugh at how stupid it was!!
See that little counter to the left? The one that says how long we've been waiting for Clarissa? Yeah, I worked on that for four hours yesterday. Go ahead, we'll take a quick pause while you laugh....
I saw someone else's blog that had an adoption counter on it and I thought it was a cool idea, so I decided to get one for my page. It took me all of five minutes to Google blog counters and I found a ton of them but I didn't like any of them. They all had kind of an obnoxiously loud Myspace look to them and they just didn't look like they would fit my blog decor at all. I'm oddly picky about things like that. I like to design things and I'm ridiculously stubborn about things turning out the way I see them in my head.
So I searched forever and I think I must have looked at every single blog counter on the internet. I had an idea of something really pretty and simple, maybe with a graphic I created behind it, with pretty fonts and colors that matched my blog.
So there's how I spent my quiet Monday afternoon. By the time I was done I had a headache and I was really cranky. When Shawn got home from work I showed him what I spend all day working on (mostly to explain why the unfolded laundry was still sitting in the same place he left it when he went to work!) and he pretended to be very impressed with my efforts. :) I love my husband, he'll cheer me on even when he has absolutely no idea what I'm doing or why.
So while you're on my blog today, be sure to admire the adoption counter. Ohh and Ahhh and be very impressed with how amazingly clever and talented I am. Isn't it the most beautiful counter you've ever seen?!? And if you know how to make it prettier (Mike, that means you), I would be your best friend forever if you would pass your knowledge on to me. :)
