I know, I know...

It's been forever since I posted anything of worth. And today just isn't going to be one of those days either. This whole photo upload business has me frustrated as heck! (being very polite there). Apparently there are other people having this problem. I've looked all over message boards and all the miracle fixes that worked for everyone else...?? not so much here. I've tried it all. It's firefox, its IE7, its facebook, myspace, youtube, its the proxy, its the cookies, its the firewall, its a couple of lines in the config of firefox, its the dns server settings, its the wireless connection... the list goes on... and its none of those here... so here I am unable to upload any photos anywhere. Grrrrrr. I've spent all day trying to fix it. By some kind of fluke I was able to upload one picture to my family/friends update blog and of course it was a picture of a pie... but could not get any more uploaded.

Anyway, aside from the photo issues... Thanksgiving was pretty good around here. Tons of food, tons of leftovers. We are finally down to just a sandwhich or two of turkey left :) My step-daughter was able to spend the holiday with us and we had a really good time. We all set up the Christmas tree on Saturday. D was even old enough this year to help and had a great time doing it.

Then we attempted to get a good picture of all the kids in front of the Christmas tree for the Christmas card... You can imagine, 4 kids... 12 pictures... 0 good ones. There may be one or two that aren't all that horrible. Unfortunately, it was about our only opportunity to get all the kids together in a picture. Maybe I should do a photoshopped one this year? ;)

Ok so it's not just me having these technical issues.I tried to upload a photo today as well for Wordless Wednesday and it took forever and then didn't up load after all.Maybe it's too many bloggers in the world.Like that saying too many hens in the hen house.lol

Did it start when you changed your template? Although I'm not sure how that would affect anything. Have you emailed blogger?

We've yet to attempt an xmas picture. I bought mateo a santa hat that he refuses to wear even though he likes hats. We're going to an xmas display thing in our area Saturday...I'm hoping I get a good pic there!

Sorry about the picture problem. That would drive me mad.

Ugh, I'm sorry to hear about your photo problems.

I'm dreading taking photos of my daughter for our Christmas card. If I could photoshop her constant blurriness (from moving), I would.

I hate uploading troubles. I got nervous when you talked about posts of worth. I thought I was going to have to think really hard and that hurts. I love rambles
