March is here and so much for “just share it” in the month of February. The time slipped by me and now February is behind us.
I am sitting on my couch, laptop on my lap, actually drinking coffee (no cream/milk or sugar; that is big for me!) freshly brewed from our Keurig and feeling like I need to get it together.
After I decided I was going to share many of the posts that have been backed up, I quickly realized why they became so “backed up” in the first place.
When I started the blog, I was taking most of the pictures myself and my husband was helping with the shots I couldn’t take; like the back of head LOL
Because I am no expert with a camera, I would take FOREVER to get a shot I was happy with which reduced my time to write and I began to feel very overwhelmed. My husband decided to take full control of the pictures at this point so he can upload them and have them ready for me to use when I would write my post.
The idea of him taking over was wonderful, however he takes pictures of many other things so as he started uploading them on his computer they became extremely unsorted. To find a particular picture I was searching through literally thousands of photos!
Finally, last night we both sat down and sorted out the pictures together and placed them in folders to make it easier to find. Instead of creating a new goal for this month, I will get up and try to “just share it” again.
What kept us busy in February…
Valentine’s Weekend Getaway – My husband and I stayed at a bed and breakfast in St. Petersburg, FL for Valentine’s day weekend to relax and had no particular plans except to unwind.
I sound like “The Woman who cried Colombia” (LOL), but I will be working on putting together posts of all of our travels.
Valentine’s Party – We hosted a prom themed Valentine’s party at our house for our close friends and had an amazing time! Here is a sneak peak, but I plan to dedicate a post to it soon:
Car Trouble – The strangest thing happened! When we came back from our St. Petersburg trip my car wouldn’t start; that is not the strange part. The weird thing was that my hood would not open!
We figured all the car needed was a jump-start, but the hood was clamped shut and was not opening. We called roadside service and they were unable to open it and even wanted to tow the car away!
After calling several mechanics, only one said he would charge $80 just to see IF he can open it; no guarantee that he could. All the others suggested we tow it to the dealership, which translated to even more money simply to open the hood and jump-start the car.
My hubby took matters into his own hands and he is THE MAN! Many grueling hours of taking off the entire grill of the car and lifting the car so he can get underneath to reach the latch to open the hood and he did it!! Hood was opened, car was jump-started, and no more car trouble 😉
I am very easy-going and laid back so when things do not go as planned I am flexible and adapt. However, I do feel out of sorts when I don’t get to do things I had planned to do for others. But I won’t give up and will be dedicating more time to getting more things out to you!
Looking forward to a wonderful month!
