What Are You Looking At?

I have gotten to the point that, if I am going to continue to blog, I need a new look. I know there are people for these sorts of things. I would love any and all suggestions, as well as some referrals, to people who might be able to help me. Blog-wise, that is. (Please don't send me numbers to the local therapist. I will ask for those numbers and referrals in a different post.)

As I listen to my children squabble, I begin to wonder if all children come wired with the same faulty programming that requires them to whine, cry, and throw tantrums over a sibling gazing in their direction. I remember as a child, sitting at the table for breakfast, building a fort around my cereal bowl with cereal boxes, because Kaylene, my sister, was either looking at me or my cereal. I know.........the gall of some people. I still clearly remember my annoyance! Humph! Thinking about it still sorta ticks me off. OK, it might be time for you to give me those other numbers now. Back to the topic at hand......You know, my children will actually throw punches over a sibling looking at them. With four kids in the house, there is a good chance, somebody is going to look at you. Since my children are not biological, I am assuming it is not my genetics, and, well, Kaylene doesn't live with us, so I am assuming that it is not environmental. I am going with the faulty wiring theory.

Let's sum up. I need a new look for my blog, and I don't even care if you are looking at me.

I remember my stepdad always telling my brother to keep the eyeball tracks off me! I must have complained about it a lot.

Well, I only recently realized your blog wasn't pink anymore! What will I think if something dazzling happens?

ANd yah, looking at each other is bad enough, but if they happen to be touching even like the edge of their pants touching the other persons in the car or something -- whoo-wee -- watch out.

No I am not looking at you behind the cereal boxes! I tell you, if you want to see a good fight, visit twins. My goodness!

I use the free "leelou" blogs - go click at the left hand logo on my blog.

After 1 1/2 years I finally changed mine. I just picked on of the formats wordpress has. Nothing fancy, but I wanted to add my own picture up top.

Oops - made a mistake - I sue "the cutest blog on the block"

Cutest blog on the block-- FREE, easy (even I can do it) blog backgrounds. You can google them, or pop over to my place and when the page loads, look in the top left hand corner of the screen and click on their name.
I AM looking at you...

And to think, all I wanted to do was read the cereal boxes, which you kept taking! LOL! Love ya!

Looks great. Did Craig tell you that we are pretty sure we have H1N1 at our house? Two kids have it one to go.

There are so many cool things you can do to your blog in Blogger. Check out

for tricks on how to make your blog wider, add extra columns if you wish, at cool gadgets.

TCBOTB (where you got your current background) is great resource for finding tips on how to change the look of your blog as well. Check out the Free Blog Secrets there:

I'd also highly recommend that you make a custom header. I believe your header right now is at 660px, so you'll want it to be that wide and about 100 to 150px tall. Of course, if you want to change the width of your header in the html section you can make it wider, and your have to make the custom header wider as well.

If all that is too confusing, then try
