Well, Poop! I'm not happy!

Hello, Dear Ones. I just wanted to poke up a quick post here. I'm still partying my head off but just wanted to get this out there!


A couple of weeks ago I lost my page with all of your blogs I love, not my followers list, but the page I had set up where I could just click on my little Note Songs button and it would take me to a list of your blogs and I could see when you'd updated and everything. I know, I know, I can do that on my dashboard, but I don't care for how it looks. I know, I know, I can go to the new Google Reader but I'm not enjoying that much yet. 

I kept thinking my list of your blogs would somehow magically appear like things do sometimes when Blogger is messing with us. Well, it did not appear here, there or anywhere! Then I fiddled with it for another week trying to start over by adding your blogs! Blogger wouldn't let me! Ugh!! I was ready to pull out my most gorgeous shorty short hair!

Then about three days ago Blogger finally started letting me add your blogs back. I was elated!
Then I got to number 167 and Blogger would not let me add any more of your blogs! So if you happen to click on my little button that says "Blogs I Follow" and you're not there, it's only because Blogger says I can't add anymore. Like I said, I'M NOT HAPPY!

Then we attended a funeral in Brackettville, Texas, which is about 30 miles from Del Rio. Del Rio is 3 miles from the Mexico border. We left Sunday morning, attended the funeral on Monday afternoon and were back in our tiny bed Monday night around midnight! Whew! I'm pooped.

Then...we've been having some things done in the kitchen and I was going to have it all pretty for you to see...ain't happening! I'm too pooped! I'll show you an ugly picture so you can feel sorry for me.

Told you it wasn't pretty.

So I just wanted to share with you that I'm pooped and not happy with Blogger right now. I guess I'll get over it. But I've decided to stew a while.

Thanks for listening and you're always a bunch of sweeties even if I can't put your blog in my special place. POOP!!!

Shelia ;)

I'm just too pooped to leave you a little Note Song. It would probably be a whining one anyway! :(


  1. Welcome to The Headmistress, where venting is ALWAYS allowed!!! :))

  2. Oh,me, sorry to hear blogger is giving you problems. I don't know why it has issues on and off. Looks like you are painting your cabinets.

  3. I never "updated" with the new Blogger, so I still have the old blogger things to use... I still have the "Blogs I'm Following Reading List" on my Dashboard page, which I use all the time. Sorry you are having a Poopy time of it!

  4. Oh goodness you poor sweet lady. I'm "pooped" reading your funny post. It will all work out in the end. Can't wait to see your kitchen!

  5. Yeah, I wondered what happened. Also, your photo on FOLLOWERS on my blog is that blank outline...what's going on???

    Awwwww...I feel wheely, wheely sorry for you...I do! But I won't when your kitchen looks sooooo pretty!! I just knew it was your kitchen you were referring to the other day - with some changes going on in your house!! LOL!!!

  6. Great post title! Looks like we both have the same problem. I have been frustrated with blogger for many months now because of not being able to update my blog list on my sidebar. I can't for the life of me figure out what is wrong. I'm hoping someone who reads your post can shed some light on this situation.

    I can't wait to see your kitchen when the work is finished!


  7. Sorry you have been having problems, Shelia. Your kitchen will look good for sure after you are done...Christine

  8. Well you probably remember when I lost most of my followers, don't you? I suspect it was a "Blogger" thing too. Don't know for sure. I completely understand your frustration. Gosh with having so much going on right now, you're best off dealing with something that is actually working right anyway. Just tell yourself...."Tomorrow is another day". Looking forward to seeing your kitchen changes too.

  9. After a storm comes a rainbow! We have to believe. I am sure your kitchen redo is going to be super duper. Can't wait to see the big reveal! Blogger is making me crazy, too. I have problems uploading photos, publishing comments, it was easy before. Why do their "upgrades" bring us "DOWN"? xo

  10. It's aways good when we can have work done on our kitchens. You'll forget all the problems you are having. Maybe bloggers will fix its self.Wishfull thinking.

  11. Your having your cabinets refaced? It will be FABULOUS! So sorry you are having issues....I so dislike when that happens!!!!!

    Fickle Blogger!!!

    Hope you are all fixed and the kitchen is fixed and don't pull out your most gorgeous shorty short hair!!! lol

    Lou Cinda :)

  12. Well, I wonder what's going on with blogger now! I see I'm not on your list and there aren't that many showing when I clicked on it either and only a few are recent posts. Oh well, I'm sure it will right itself soon. It looks like you are into a major spruce up in your kitchen. I can't wait to see what you've been up to. Blessings, Pamela

  13. I am sorry you are having problems with blogger....bad blogger!!

    Looks like you are getting your cabinets painted!

    p.s. no, I don't miss the house I just sold....I think I need to do a post about that...

  14. Oh darling, I'm sorry to hear you've been having problems with blogger, nothing more frustrating. I hope you're all rested up.. cannot wait to see your gorgeous kitchen all put back together...hugs ~lynne~
    p.s. you always manage to put a smile on my face...

  15. Hey Shorty Short Hair!
    I, for one, cannot wait to see the redone kitchen! Don't be too pooped, be a sweetie.

  16. Your not alone, seems like a lot of blogs are slugish theses days, including ,mine. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  17. First, your kitchen countertops are beautiful and I know whatever you do will only enhance their beauty. I hope that makes you feel better. I've only been with Blogger for 4 months but it's way, way better than Typepad. I know you'll work it all out. I keep a sign beside my desk that says....Relax...You're OK. Go with that!


  18. Well poop, I am not happy that you are not happy. Hope it works out for ya.

  19. Blogger sure does like to irritate us. I know your frustrations. This new blogger change is HORRIBLE! I dislike it vehemently. I never had a favorite list because everyone is my favorite ... you all are very important to me alike.

    Hope you get things to your satisfaction ... you are too funny, Shelia. Anxious to see that kitchen redo.

    TTFN ~
    Have a lovely day ~

  20. Oh sweet Sheila, I hear you loud and clear regarding blogger! I am so fed up with all their silly changes too. That new dashboard is so unfriendly I have reverted back to the old one. Let's hope they get things sorted soon.

    Maybe you need to just sit down and relax with a nice cup of tea. Pop over to my place and I'll make you one!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha in Oz

  21. Shelia,
    Concerning your problems with the updating of your blog list...Just goes to show that you have M A N Y friends!!! What on earth happened to your kitchen cupboard doors??? AND where's all your dishes, glasses, pots & pans??? Mother Nature OR "Mr. Precious"??? Do tell, dear friend!!!

  22. It's not often you see the word Poop in the title to a blog post. But yes, I guess all that would be poopy! You'll feel so much better when the kitchen is done!

  23. Well sometimes a girl just has to stew. :)

  24. I love your title darling and that you are so real. I am in just the same place with the blog roll. I have not been able to add to it in about 3 months. It says Saving and never saves the darn thing!

  25. I know what you mean about blogger Shelia because it's not letting me add any new blogs either UGH!! On a brighter note, I can't wait to see the changes going on in your kitchen:)

  26. When you are too pooped for a Note song...I know it's serious! I hope the rest of the week goes better...and you get some rest! Oh, and a song to sing!

  27. Awwwww Shelia, I'm sorry. Blogger is not being nice to you and probably others as well. We seldom have trouble with typepad but it does cost money.

    I can't wait to see your kitchen. I know what ever you decide to do it will be beautiful.

    Drink a nice glass of wine and think of your darling granddaughter. Big smile.
    Love, Jeanne

  28. Shelia, how dare Blogger treat you this way! Surely if they had known that you were pooped they wouldn't have caused you this extra worry. Yeah, right! I feel at least part of your pain because I haven't been able to add blogs for months. Sure wish they would get that fixed soon. Now, you slow down and get yourself refreshed so you can show us your kitchen project! Take care------ Shannon

  29. I tried using the new bloggy thingy and felt completely lost. I'm sorry you're having a "poopy" day. Maybe tomorrow will be better!

  30. So sorry to hear about those bad old blogger issues. I have not been able to add blogs to my blog list. It keeps saying I have too many. I figured they don't like me, because I'm typepad. Guess it is happening all over blogland.

    I don't like anything about any of the new Google stuff.

    On a lighter note...I can't wait to see what is happening in your kitchen.

  31. Gosh darn it! That is so frustrating Sheila. I hope everything comes together soon. looking forward to your kitchen's new look.

  32. sorry blogger is being such a Boob:(

    cant wait to see whats new in your kitchen..

  33. You must be tired if we don't get a song!
    I am telling you if they take Blogroll away, I seriously may stop blogging. I am like you...I use it all the time. I don't like reading from dashboard...and Google...well, I can't even use the stupid thing!
    Take a hot answer for any trama!!
    Here is a song for you....
    Shelia doesn't have a song....
    so we know, something Must be wrong
    but soon another bloggy day will come...
    and Shelia will have sung...that her kitchen is done!! la, la , la!!

  34. Too much all at once! Hope things are turning around for you!

  35. your too pooped to pop?!
    sorry my friend...all will be better in the morning!

  36. Bless your little pea-picking heart. I hate it when things happen like that! Computer programs can be such an aggravation! Just hang in there. This to, shall pass! Take care!

  37. Gosh Shelia, you've always been pretty problem-free with Blogger too! Aww, never mind. We all understand. Wow, how long for your kitchen out of action!! :) Think of all the gorgeous decorating you'll be able to share.

  38. Well honey, Blogger makes me crazy too, and so does the computer!! I still can't put buttons on the sidebar and links are a hit or do so well, sorry you are pooped!!! What are you doing with your wonderful kitchen??? I love it the way it must be doing something very special knowing you......

  39. Would you like to borrow my blogger voodoo doll? I can email him to you! ;P


  40. Well bummer, rats and stinkie. I'm sorry you aren't happy.

    Get some rest. It will all be pretty again soon.

    Love ya!♥

  41. Bless your heart! You've got some kitchen work ahead of you! I've become a follower, although I've had you on my sidebar (it's really an honor to be THERE ya know- LOL)because I love you so much! No worries- I'll track you down.

  42. Que tal señora Shelia, queria preguntale si los platos que le puso la tela atras se pueden utilizar para comer,como llevan pegamento o son solo de decoracion.Aprovecho para decirle que me gusta mucho su blog,y que siempre tiene ideas maravillosas como esta que le estoy comentando.Espero su respuesta gracias.Norma

  43. Well I'm just a little behind on blog reading! Sorry about the blogger issues - I'm having my own issues with it. I can't wait to keep reading to see how your kitchen is coming along. Might take me awhile since my own kitchen is in a state of disaster but I'm doing it myself and it is slow going!


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
