Sunday Salon

Sunday, July 19, 2009


This has been a frustrating week in terms of reading -- I really didn't get very much done. There are a few reasons for that. 1) I have been sort of stressed out recently. I have a lot going on. I'm starting my counseling internship soon (along with my full-time job) and just getting the paperwork and all that together has stressed me out and has made it difficult to concentrate on reading. 2) I love Harry Potter, but every time I have ever read a Harry Potter book, it takes me forever. Ironic, I know! It's an easier reading, young adult book, but it takes me a long time to get through. (Plus I did have a lot going on this weekend). As it is, it's been a week and I still have over 200 pages to go on it. =/ 3) I spent HOURS today trying to change my blog background. It's partially me being picky and partially the choice of blogs. It seemed like EVERYTHING I found had something wrong with it that made it not work for me. I tried to change a 2 column one that I really liked to a 3 column one... and I did really well. It wasn't perfect, but it was okay. But then the spacing wasn't exactly right, and then to edit anything I had to add code (because otherwise the edit section was all grayed out) and then I had to go back in and take out the code (or else the right sidebar was waaaay at the bottom of the page). Nevertheless, I spent so many hours on that until I became so frustrated and exhausted. So now I am back to what I had and am not going to mess with it unless I find one that looks perfect right away.

Anyway, so haven't gotten much reading done. I started Pillars of the Earth for the group read on Librarything. I'm a little behind, but I'll catch up. Don't have anything else to say for today's Sunday Salon. Just that I am a frustrated and irritated girl right now!

I like the background you had up last night better!

I really did too... I even got the extra sidebar on there, but the spacing was off and the code made it all weird to where it frustrated me too much. And I haven't found anything else I really want. Maybe one of these days I'll get around to making my own... it's just so much work though!

Don't you hate having a bad reading week? I call it Reader's Block.

I have weeks like this where I just can't seem to find the time to fit any reading in. Pillars of the Earth is a great book! Long, but really good. And the three column format is looking good now. I think I need a background change (takes too long to load), but I'm lazy. :P

Hope you're having a great week!

Thanks! I was trying to use this other background with a beach and the blue part that is written on is opaque... but it gave me a lot of trouble so this will work for now. =)
