I went and screwed up my blog. Just what I needed. Then I ran into problems with the three column template and then the header didn't want to upload.
After a lot of tweaking and a few touch ups I am back to a clean looking - colors inverted-template.
The hubby's gonna hate it. Like he does everytime I change my blog's design. It seems these days I get more fun out of tweaking the code than I do from blogging. Might have to do with the tons of things I need to write for work.
Also thank you for your advice on buying a house or sharing what made you do it. Your advice is much appreciated. After all it's not like buying a bagel or a designer dress. This will be a major thing and I realize just how this may influence our lives.
A big thank you.
I will keep you posted on our progress.
