So I'm sure most of you have noticed by now that I can't seem to make up my mind about my blog background. Those websites with the free backgrounds are going to drive me crazy. Here I sit in the wee hours of the night looking at all these choices and never making a decision that I remain happy with.

Part of my problem is that I seem to have similar taste as some of my blogging friends. I will finally find a background that I like but then realize that someone else is already using it. What makes this process even longer for me is that when I read my blogs (or your blogs, however you want to look at it) I read them through Google Reader. My friend Deb introduced me to this concept a couple of months ago and it has made my blog-stalking so much easier!! The down side of GR is that I don't see everyone's cute backgrounds when I read. I just read your posts through Google so they simply look like an e-mail or something to that effect.
So in this process of selecting a background, GR has me at a disadvantage because I have to click through everyone's blog and wait for them to load, to see if someone else is already using the one that I have found to certainly be the "perfect" choice for my blog. In most cases, I have duplicated one of my friends' choices and therefore must return to the searching process through above mentioned website. Thus creating a terribly long process that just keeps me from going to bed like I should be.
But here I sit, at midnight, somewhat satisfied with my current choice. I'd like to tell you that I won't change it but if you've been following me for any length of time we all know that just simply isn't the case. When I was younger (like in high school), I was always making my mother late for work due to my wardrobe indecision. It has really taken me until my thirties (or two kids and just being too tired) to finally get to a point where I really don't care all that much about my choice of clothing for the day anymore. Maybe at some point, I'll reach that same place for my blog's attire. Here's hopin'!
