See, It All Started Like This....

I decided that it's time for a new look. I had noticed the past few times I've changed my blog background, there are now matching headers for some of the backgrounds. This time, I decided that I'm going all the way. New background, new header, might as well toss in some pictures on the header since you can do that, you know!!!

Well, that was several attempts ago. I only succeeded to waste entire, precious night shifts on nothing more than monkeying around with what "they" claim as a very simple procedure each time I attempted to get this fancy blog set up.

Next, after many tries, I decided that maybe it's time for me to purchase a cheap "PhotoShop"-like program to help me figure this whole thing out. Additionally, this type of a program can be so fun to alter pictures with! I couldn't wait....I had actually tried the free version that this blogsite touted also as a very simple process. It. was. NOT. Several tries of just downloading this free program produced a big nothing!

Okay, now here I am. Fast forward, mmmmm, at least a month and a half, two months later. Purchased a cheap, reasonably-priced program...only to realize it was far from easy to figure out.

I got a call from this company about a few days later asking me if I realize that this version that I purchased, this cheap, reasonably-priced, not to mention simple program I purchased, is an old, slightly outdated version of a wonderful newer program....a program that is much more user-friendly that comes with a user manual, many prompts while using this program....all for a slightly higher price. One that if I purchase it, I will be reimbursed my other money I put towards the cheap, reasonably-priced, not to mention cheap program. Sounds good. Sounds downright EXcellent!!!

I have since received this wonderful user-friendly program.

Now guess what! My C: drive is too full to download and install this new and improved photo altering program. And, try as I might, I cannot get enough deleted to satisfy this no-good, broken down, washed up, has-been computer to install this program!!!!!!!!!!

*Sigh*

If it helps any, I think your background and header look really nice. However, your story is why my blog looks so bad, I live in a parallel computer universe.
