What we remembered was in the cold Chicago winters curling up with an afghan and reading all day. For supper we would have hot garlic bread and hot cocoa. We would be reading The Bobbsey Twins or Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys. I was into The Hardy Boys because of Shawn Cassidy. For some reason I just loved him. Of course, now I'm like "what was I thinking...." I even had a gigantic poster of him on my wall and would kiss him every night before bed. lol. "what was I thinking..."

Hate WordPress

I have tried to make a blog at least 3 times with WordPress. It hasn't gone very well. I don't find them very user friendly at all and their themes suck. No flexibility at all either.

#HomeHer10 was a spin-off of BlogHer10 on Twitter. An at home conference in the day in the life of fellow bloggers who did not attend BlogHer10 in NYC. My sister over at explained it to me when I began seeing her tweets and I decided to join in. It was FUN! And I learned that my problems are just like other peoples and humor will get you through it. I also found other bloggers to follow.
So what was my day like?: find out on my Twitter page.
