3am Break-in!

I stumbled upon a great linky party offering advice for baby bloggers. I thought that was cute! I hope I don’t offend anyone! If I read your blog, you want be offended! But I hate cluttered blogs. Boy, when I first setup mine, I had buttons and little gadgets galore!

Limit the clutter

the break in

Last night at 3am I was awoken to a scratching noise. Our master bedroom is off the kitchen on the main floor and all the boys are at a good distance away from me safely upstairs. I listened for a minute. You must understand I am slightly afraid of the dark. I literally run to the bathroom if I need to go at night!
heard it again. Thought, hoped, it was a cat or something. We actually had a cat sneak into our house before! Still going on. Was someone trying to steal my brand new washer!? I sat up. I considered waking Mr. Lamb, but figured my bedhead could scare any robbers away!

Still heard it. Got up, tip toed into the kitchen. Coming from the living room where front door is…was it the Reaper mad about my blogging about him?!

scratch, scratch, oh looky there, my laptop restarted and the printer decided to print what I printed and reprinted 5 times yesterday! Ugh! I am not happy with my wireless printer. It never prints until we restart the PC! any advice?

In the end, all is safe in Lamb Land, I darted back to bed, pulled the covers to my chin, and lay wide awake for an hour…Here’s what I was printing btw-at least before I ran out of black ink! stinkin’ cute!

    1. Great linky Patti! You'll be addicted before you know it!

    Learning Is Something to Treasure

  8. Great advice, especially for a Newbie like me that wants to have it all, all at once! I will definitely keep that advice in mind from now on.

  9. I definitely agree about the clutter and the pop-ups!! I can't wait until my blog designer is finished with my design so I can de-clutter even more! Anddd thank you so much for the contest shout out. You are the best!!

    PS: So glad it was your printer and not a creature, a stranger, or the reaper!!! That's too funny. I hate my printer too. I really want one with air print... and one that will print the mass quantities of files I have saved clearly and colorfully!
