Nightmare on changing templates street

I have changed my background. It was just a wee bit more technical than I had counted on. Just a little FYI--when it says save your template first--save it. When it says your widgets are about to be deleted--its true. And last but not least--if it says to write everything down so you will remember it--those are wise words, my friend. I do not think I shall ever walk this way again....it makes my head hurt and my blood pressure rise. I'm sure its fall somewhere on the planet even when its spring here--right?

Sounds like you learned the hard way, ouch. I still have the same template that I started with bz I'm too chicken to change it. I'm afraid I'll lose everything. Besides I have a hard time reading some of the posts people do bz their background shines through. That's quite the offer you left me friend! I can't tell you how much I hate taking the Percocet. I just hate the feeling of not knowing what I've done. Oh, and Clinton had nothing to do with Savannah! LOLOLOLOL!!

Okay, this is freaky, but are we soul sisters or what? Guess what I have been doing all frickin day? Well, go over to my blog and read about my troubles, then you'll understand what I'm talking about. And can you believe I pick almost identical color pallette as you? Except your blog turned out more spiffy than mine. Worth all the trouble you went through. I wish I could say the same thing for mine :-(

I know exactly what you mean too! I only do the templates that you add to your gadget-instead of inserting into the html. I have gotten lost way too many times and lost so many widgets-I would have a melt down. Now I'm happy to use pYzam or "the cutest blog on the block". I love your new back ground...is it from LeeLou? I just saw her button.

Lisa-thanks for always dropping by my blog...I do love to change the background almost everyday sometimes. Can you tell I have way too much time on my hands? If I'm not blogging I'm waiting for Cam to write an email :) My house is on a regular schedule now for daily cleaning...and I'm waiting for that BIG phonecall-someone who needs me to start a job! But I guess Heavenly Father need me here at the house...

CUTE background. I am sure it was not easy but it is very cute. m

LOL. I'm laughing here. I feel your pain because it happened to me too. This is why I will never change my background again! So sorry, Lisa. I'm sorry that it happened to you. I'm sorry that you are stuck with a fall print (although very cute). But most of all I'm sorry that your pain gave me a little chuckle.

You crack me up.

I think now if you like the template you have, you should be able to go in and change the background pattern without the need to change the template.
