help me....i'm drowning in instructions!!!

*sigh* i've spent most of my daddy/daughter day (adam takes maeven out for a few hours so i can get work done and he can have special time with her) sorting through this banner rotation program i have downloaded and am trying to figure out how to work. the instructions are soooooo long and complicated...but its supposed to be easy once you get the hang of it...so i endure. argh. my head hurts

i'm trying and trying to get this working so that i can be ready for the upcoming partnership with mothering magazine. so far i'm just feeling overwhelmed with all the work i have to do. not sure how i want the site to be set up and wanting to be done with it so i can go back to fresnofamily.com and sort through all the changes and additions i want to do there. but i have the potential to make some decent money on mommychats if only i just can get these banner ads!

well back to the instruction manual...i'm picking through it page by page...i do have some help too, but she had to go eat dinner and i'm left to sort through this by myself again.

i'm a smart woman, i can DO this! *diving in again*

update on life at the smith's

life has been hectic around here...i usually forget i even have a blog. well, i guess i should update this.

so my website www.mommychats.com is coming along nicely...and the partnership with mothering magazine (www.mothering.com) is slated to kick off sept 1. so i need to figure out the darn banner rotation program i have! i am going to be charging for adspace, so i can finally make some moolah! which we really need, because we've been blowing through money lately like crazy.

discovered yesterday that we are in the red in our checking account...that's so my fault, i just have not been paying attention to what we're spending. since baelin died i just don't care about stuff like that so much and i just don't pay much attention. well i need to start cuz we were finally doing really good financially and now we're screwing up...so i gotta crack the whip on myself and get this stuff back in order. adam's gonna ask for an advance on his paycheck today and maybe we can straighten some of this out here.

starting up my mommy & me classes again...starting monday, aug 2. i'm very excited! i really enjoy doing them, and i am going to tweak things a bit, so it'll be a bit different this time around. hopefully it will go well.

well there's lots more going on, but i want to get working on my website stuff while maeven's sleeping, so i'll do more of this later.

well i'm obsessive

so i haven't been posting being i'm not happy with the graphics...is that anal or what? i can't post my daily thoughts because my blog isn't pretty enough! WAH! lol!

i have someone who's supposed to be helping me create a pretty blog but i can't get her to respond to my emails now. she started the process...but now that i found some graphics i like, she has disappeared. rhonda says she's got some family issues...so i don't want to keep bugging her. but i am frustrated that i don't know how to add these graphics to the set up she started for me...and i don't have the time or energy right now to sit down and figure it out myself. i probably could figure it out if i only took the time. but i've got soooooooo many other projects right now. i wanted someone else to do this one project FOR me for a change...*sigh* well, hopefully she'll turn up again soon.

there's just so much going on in my life right now i cannot even begin to write about it all right now because maeven and i are going to the library storytime. oh and now the phone is ringing.

and now maeven is shouting for me. ARGH.

gotta go.
