Yesterday and part of today

I have been trying to subscribe to friends blogs but I keep messing up! I feel so dumb when it comes to computers stuff. Last week I tried to subscribe to Heather's blog with my AOL and it wouldn't work. The other day I tried Kate's blog on firefox and I got the thing to show up on my firefox task bar but it wouldn't update. Yesterday I tried to subscribe to Yasmina's blog I set up a gmail account and tried having her blog show up my new google homepage but somehow I got new post today that are a month old. They showed up as new and ahead of ones from this month! Once again I give up! I have tried so many different things in the last 6 months and I can't get anything to work. Maybe I am better off sticking with my old system of blog reading at random friends blogs when I get a free minute. I hate this system because I never make it to every one's blogs! Do they have a blog reading for idiots book? I could really use one! I want to see what everyone is doing but I can't find a good system to do it.

A picture from yesterday.
I have been trying different ways of using glitter with my 2 year old. I don't know if any of you remember the glitter mess I had last year but I know it is something I will never forget. I had glitter on socks, walls, floor and everywhere else from Dec until the month of Jan. by the end of Jan. I was sick of finding glitter specks all over everything (Demi was only 18 months old last Dec). This year so far is MUCH better! I have found using bottle caps with small amounts of glitter glue in them with a Q-tip to apply the glitter a good way for her to decorate everything. I am looking back wondering why I gave my 18 month old free use of jars of loose glitter last year? I must have been crazy! LOL!

Below is a picture of the glitter caps she was using.

She has been covering all kinds of ornaments and crafts in glitter. I couldn't get a good picture of the glitter on her painted stuff so I asked her to"glitter paint" some gingerbread men on plain paper for me just so I could get a picture of just the glitter. LOL! I think you can see that the glitter goes on well with the Q tips. Every spot she touches gets glittery. I wish I would have tried this last year!

Today she painted letters,wooden toy cars, paper and other stuff. By the end of the day her hair, face, hands, arms, and clothes had paint all over them.

This picture was from early in the day today.
I have lots more to share but I think it will all have to wait until tomorrow. I need to get the children to bed. I don't have time to upload more pictures.

I am thinking I might be a bit to OLD to learn how to work things like a computer. LOL!
