Amazon Associates Widget (or Lack Thereof)

Hello, all! I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year so far. I hope this is your best year yet--I know that I am determined to make it mine! One of my goals for this year is to get back into my blogging more regularly, as you may know I have expressed some disappointment with my lack of posting and blogging...simply because something occurs to me and I think, "Oh, I should blog about this!" Then, I don't find the time to do it. *Sigh* So...here we go on January 3, 2012. We'll see how it goes!

While I was reformatting my recipe blog earlier, I noticed that my Amazon Widget for Associates no longer exists. I'm soooo disappointed about this!! I loved having the widget right there at my fingertips because it made sharing relevant material so easy with you all! If I wanted to show you a movie, or a book, etc. all I had to do was click, click, done! I read something about there being a tax issue between Google and Amazon in California, and since I'm not like a hard-core blogger have no idea what that was about. However, I did read enough on Blogger's help forum to realize that this wonderful piece of technology may never come back... It's my understanding that I can still create links directly to Amazon, but seeing as I am a self-proclaimed technological illiterate, I do not yet know how that's gonna work out...

You know the saying "a picture's worth a thousand words"? Well, if I could give you a picture of my life right now, this is what it would look like:


Well, so my kitchen doesn't look that bad, but practically the rest of my house does! The project here for the last two weeks has been to tear out the stairway leading upstairs (and the closet under it) and replace it with a stairwell that still leads upstairs, and uses the same opening, but goes in the opposite direction. As I mentioned sometime back, my husband and I are "do it yourself-ers" and so, when we take on a task like this, it tends to last a while since we don't just hire it done. Since my dad was on Christmas vacation from his job these last two weeks (he is a school teacher), and could help with this project, we took advantage of the opportunity for his help, even though that meant having a mess everywhere during Christmas and New Year's. I am not a fan of the mess, but I do think it will help the overall house, both downstairs and upstairs.  Now if we can just get it finished...

When things around here are "finished" (if such a state of being even exists) I will post pics, but I wouldn't hold your breath. Haha!

I hope you have a very prosperous new year filled with lots of love and laughter!
