Today feels like it should be Friday. This week has been that long. Sadly, its only Wednesday ... can I get a fast forward, please?!

Here's the thing ... this blogging thing started off as a hobby - something for me to do to maybe find a few like-minded people. Never in a million years did I imagine it would become what it has. I seriously love to blog and share recipes. I even like taking pictures and editing them (now that I sorta have a hang of it!). I love conversing with my bloggy friends and my readers. I actually enjoy most of the social media - some more so than others.

What I don't like is technology when it doesn't want to work. I go nuts and want it fixed immediately. Like, fix it now. My husband is pretty tech savvy - but his job sometimes prevents him from being my fix-it guy when I need immediate help. He can't be right here all of the time. *sigh*

In this blogging thing, I have learned more about computers, html, css, programs, apps, plug-ins, extensions, platforms, cameras, lenses, lighting and photography ... than I ever really wanted to know! I'm almost positive there are about another 20 things I can add to that list. Seriously, somewhere over the past 2 years, this has become my job. I am thankful for the opportunities this blog has afforded my family and I am in shock when I think about all of the things I have learned on this journey. 

When your "job" is on the computer, you can't afford to have down time. I try to stay very organized so I don't feel like I'm overwhelmed, but thinking I'm organized is just in my head. Ha! Most of the time, I do feel like I have a million and one things to do ... and that's ok when technology cooperates!

Yesterday, my computer started acting whacked. For no reason. It would take 20 minutes for a page to load. 20 minutes, y'all. Who has time for that?! Of course, I tried figuring it out myself for about 2 hours .... and then resorted to calling Brian. I was pretty sure the error was either a Chrome issue or with Adobe. I don't know all of the technical stuff and there's only so much he can do or tell me to do when he can't exactly see the problem. To say I was frustrated is putting it mildly. Just when I thought a hammer would solve the problem, I had this crazy idea to check my shockwave files. Bam ... two of them. Fighting with each other. I disabled one and restarted the computer for the 500th time yesterday ..... and waited. My pages loaded like normal. What?! Seriously. It was that easy. Disabling a file. *bangs head on wall*

Needless to say, I needed a drink after my day yesterday. I could have resorted to alcohol, but I didn't. Instead, I whipped up a batch of my Pumpkin Chai Tea Latte and forgot all about my computer problems. Its perfectly spiced, creamy and delicious.

This is the perfect way to relax after a day of shopping or to warm up after playing with the kiddos outside. It tastes like those fancy, expensive drinks you buy at the coffeeshop - but its soooo much cheaper! And its easy!
