Last May, along with hosting my son’s bar mitzvah and filling out a tree’s worth of mortgage application papers, I decided to have this blog redesigned. The bar mitzvah left me kvelling and we got the house, but the blog redesign was a nightmare. My husband, who literally knew just enough about WordPress to be dangerous when he set it up, tweaked a few key things that essentially make it impossible to update the theme or other key aspects of the site. That left me to work with the site as is or start over from scratch.
It scared me away for a few months (plus, we started a major home renovation over the summer and managing that has been like a full-time job itself). For now, I’m going with the Bloom Where You Are Planted philosophy and making do with what I’ve got.
