TreeSprite Delves into Journaling

11:24:34 AM
I'm trying really hard to make this Journal thing work, but it really does wear one out! Do any of you have any idea what it's like to sit and try to figure out the scripting necessary for these things? And I'm just setting up the template so that it will be really easily done from here on out. I'm about to drop from exhaustion, and frustration. I'm working on it still though. I hope it works out for me!

I'm so excited! Dan is coming home! He'll be in the air later tonight on his way home. I really have missed him, and I can't wait to see him.

I had to take Mom to the Doctor's. She's got bronchitis, and maybe pneumonia. I played Pokémon while I waited at the Doctor's office and the hospital both. VERY annoying! Jaylinx won't evolve. Game says he loves me, but he just won't evolve into Espeon for me. I'm guessing that it's because we lost at the mini games, and he really got stomped when I played Eager Eevee.

Journaling Frustration

11:28:52 AM
Been working on this silly thing some more, but it seems like I'm just not getting anywhere. I think I've about got it figured out though. It's just a matter of messing about with it, and getting the template just right. I'll get it eventually.

TreeSprite Experiences Sickness

02:28:16 AM
Dan called! Talked for several hours. He's wasn't tired because of the time difference, so I stayed up and talked to him for a while. He and I made plans to go shopping tomorrow. It'll be fun I think. Spend the day with him, and get my shopping finished.
07:09:49 AM
BLEH! Wouldn't you know it? Not only am I tired, but I'm also sick. Go figure, who'd have thought that if I took mom to the doctors, and have a sick husband, and some slightly sick kids that I'd get sick? *rolls eyeballs* I wonder how I got sick don't you? At any rate, I can't breathe, my voice is cracking, and I'm tired. I'm not sure I'm going to make it to go shopping with Dan unless I get more sleep, so as soon as the kids are off to school I'm going back to bed!
10:37:04 AM
*Drab tired looks at computer screen* Ugh. *blinks at screen*

Ok, the fingers are supposed to type now. Come on fingers let's get busy and make a journal entry ok? I tried... I can't sleep!

*Lists aggravations in a whining tone*:
I can't breathe!
Buttercup is whining because I stuck her in her bed so I wouldn't have to hear her chase Heather all morning!
The wind and the rain are making things fall off the trees, and something whacked the house just a bit ago!
Giant trucks and cars without mufflers keep driving LOUDLY up the street!
There's a mouse in the house, and Heather insists upon knocking everything that's on the counters off onto the floor in her attempts to capture the fool thing!
And did I mention that I can't breathe!??

This sucks! I sincerely doubt that I should be going anywhere... and I was so looking forward to spending the day with Dan! :(

I've made a lot of changes to the way the website is going to look. It's silly really, after getting a bit more rest Rest being the key word here - I certainly didn't sleep much! after Dan called and I told him I couldn't go, I set about the task of adding the Journal links to the pages. I did that, and suddenly I found myself getting all aggravated over the way it looked, and thinking This needs to change this way., and Maybe I should change that color? and then, The Poems don't display fancy enough on the screen. Darn, if I'm going to change that, then this other has to match!... Hehehe! If you've ever done a website then you know how it is. You sit down to add just a bit, and suddenly it becomes a whole site makeover!

TreeSprite Attempts to Choke the Life out of the Blog Posting Interface.

02:33:00 AM
The husband and I just got done playing Pokémon. We played with level five Pokémon, and he stomped my butt twice! I think I need to go to bed, because I'm all crabby, and upset over a game.
12:28:31 PM
*Steaming* Stupid Journal! I have nearly had it! I haven't even managed to publish this thing to the net yet, and it's giving me no end of trouble! I was wanting to publish it today, but the fool thing has made an absolute mess of my entries! I don't know if it's me or what but I'm about to scream over it!

Got it figured out now!

07:27:46 AM
Hello everyone! :)

The kids have made it off to school, and I need to hurry and do things today since I won't have a lot of time until they get home. I'll be actually posting this to the web this morning, so it will be live for the first time as of today. I hope you all don't mind the standard setup for the Blog. I couldn't get it to post to my satisfaction in reverse. Oh well.... life isn't all bad. To get it exactly the way I wanted it I'd have to hand code it every day, and good heavens but that's annoying! This way is much easier, and so I'll be more likely to actually post to it often. I certainly hope I'm better at posting everyday than some of the other people who's blogs I read, but I'm sure that at some point I'll be just as bad. Some days there just isn't much to write about you know?

Have a good morning everyone!

YAY! Dan Came To Visit!

10:45:43 AM
Hello again!

I hope everyone reading this on this fine day is having as nice a morning as I am! It's strange that I should be feeling so good as to be cheery this morning, since I was up until 4:00 a.m. However, I had fun all evening and into those wee hours so I guess that has something to do with it.

Dan came over yesterday to visit with us, and he was here until 4:00 a.m. We played Pokémon, and I got my butt kicked both in the mini games and in battle. Dan and I battled with level five pokémon and I made some silly mistakes with the controller, so I was a bit annoyed with myself when I lost. I was really embarrassed later when B.J. battled his Godfather as well and won. Dan gave him a Charmander for winning.

I guess the highlight of the day was getting my birthday present. I love Kirby and Dan knows it, so I guess he picked out that Kirby DVD with that in mind. I got the first three episodes of "Kirby, Right back at ya!" on DVD now! It was so fun to sit and watch the adventures of this little balloon character that I've played on Smash Bros. for so long! Hee hee hee! "I AM THE KIRBY!" I can't wait until Dan comes back today so I can play as Kirby on the GameCube version of Smash Bros!

So what were we doing that kept us up until 4:00 a.m. you ask? Well, I played Magic the Gathering for the first time last night! Dan brought several decks with him yesterday, and I played a green deck, while the husband chose to play a blue deck, and Dan played a white deck. I hate to admit it, but I like the game now that I've played, and I wouldn't mind playing again. However, I'm really NOT going to spend the money necessary to buy all the cards to set up a deck. I've got kids to feed, and I've seen people who get into playing this game... they spend TONS of money. I just don't have that sort of extra spending cash, but it was fun to play!

Well I've run out of things to go on about, so this is it for now. Have a nice day everyone!
