I think I have a problem...

I think I have a major problem. I tend to be a little anal-retentive about things. My clothes are all organized according to color. And it drives me crazy when the hangers are not all facing the same way. I can't stand the fact that my mom will fold towels and basically just throw them on a self in the linen closet, instead of arranging them by size and color, making sure the same side of each towel is facing out. You see what I mean? My movies are alphabetized, as well as my CDs. All my canned goods face the same way. I can't stop myself!

So you can understand why it has been bugging me FOREVER that I did not write a blog during the entire month of April. Why would this drive me crazy, you ask? Well, because on the right hand side of my blog, there is a list of archives. And the list is organized by month. Needless to say, it's been driving me freaking insane to see the list jump from March to May with nothing in between. Why, oh why, didn't I write a blog in April?!? I can't remember if I was busy, or just not totally into the blog scene yet, or what, but that little mistake has been on my mind constantly ever since.

However, I was poking around on my Blogger settings tonight (which happens to be August 22, 2006), and I think I may have found a way to correct the problem. Normally, at home, I use a web browser called Safari, which is a Macintosh based program. I have the option to use Explorer, but it constantly crashes, so I try to avoid it. Anyway, for about a month now I have been unable to upload photos to blogger from my work computer. I can't explain it; I do everything correctly, and then the link never shows up. So I've had to do it when I get home from work. But I have to write and post the original blog at work, because my home computer, for some reason, does not allow me to see all the special features such as bolding, adding bullet points, etc. It's very weird.

Anyway, tonight I noticed that when using Explorer on my home computer, it allows me to see an extra special Blogger setting that I can't see at work… “Change Time & Date.” YES! I've been looking for this exact feature for months; I don't know why I couldn't find it before! I swear it's so weird how some computers and browsers will allow you to see certain features, but others won't. It's a mystery.

Anyhow, I am fairly excited that I can now add “April” into my blog archive list. It takes very little to make me happy, really. I doubt any of you will ever read this, because who would think to look back into my archives just for the fun of it? But for me, this solves the daily anxiety I feel when I log onto Blogger and quickly have to scroll past the archive part of the sidebar because I can't bear to look at it. Yes, I realize I have really weird issues.

Happy April!
