I have had a wonderful day of learning so much about PHP and CSS languages today and have made good progress towards the final format I would like this blog to be in.
I was editing away on the code trying to put widgets on my 404 page (the one you see when you get lost in someones website or directed to by an outdated link), no big deal right?
I had a copy of the php code I had just removed and was happily playing with it while I listened to Kevin read The Epicenter (our newest novel).
Then it happened.
And I don’t mean a little broke. I’m talking big broke, heart pounding, palms sweating, fear rising broke.
I poked it. Prodded it. Tried desperately just to have it take the old code back.
Nada. Not happening here chickita.
Then I got angry….really angry. I stood up in a huff, cutting Kevin off mid paragraph and announced that it was time for dinner. I ripped a piece of bread off the loaf I just baked and angrily munched on it.
Which then threw Kevin into a huff, who then tried to peel an egg I just boiled that were too fresh to peel easily. He then opened a drawer in a huff, pulled out a knife and slammed it shut again.
He cut himself a piece of bread and stomped off into the back of the house.
(Let it be known that when we don’t know what to do with our frustrations ripping hunks of bread off the loaf is good therapy. )
We ate dinner and then I remembered that in this great surge of organization I had read Oh My Stinkin Heck’s tutorials on how to backup your database with Filezilla. You can read her whole series here.
I played in there for a few minutes, replaced the offending file. Prayed and breathed in deeply.
And as I am sure you concluded since you are reading this on my (not broken) blog.
It fixed it.
