Letter of Intent.

Foursons

I am joining Julie's "Letter of Intent" Friday's today.  And do you know why?  Because I have a letter of intent to write. And because I think Julie has a really suh-weet name.



Dear Blogger (the company),


Oh where, oh where is my menu bar?  Oh where, Oh where could she be? Look up...she used to be perched right above this post, always smiling back at me.  I don't want to sound rude, but I worked on that menu bar until my fingers bled.  I am no computer genius.  I never took a class on writing HTML code.  Therefore, in order to make that menu bar...I had to dig deep within myself.  I had to open up numerous tutorials and click back and forth between them as I painstakingly pieced together my menu buttons.  I was so proud of myself when they were done.  And when they were not centered and spaced correctly, I dug deep again and found the code that was needed.

I must say I am a bit perturbed that my menu has mysteriously disappeared.  In fact...I looked just about everywhere I could...and it is gone. G.O.N.E.  I don't want to make threats...but do the words Typepad or Wordpress mean anything to you?


So I would like to know what YOU are going to do about it.  I simply do not have the time or mental energy to complete such a mundane task again. I respectfully ask to be reimbursed in some way.  Whether it be a simple letter of apology or a cash reimbursement for the hours wasted, I would be satisfied with either.  And while you are at it.  Could you please find my menu bar?  Because I really liked having one. It made me feel "grown up".


And...one more thing.  I want you to stare hard into the face of this child.

He has needs.  Lots of them. And, yes, he happens to have pig tails in..do you have a problem with that?  Like I said, he has needs.  I know that in good conscience you wouldn't want me to waste a minute more of my time in trying to sort out this unfortunate event.  So...the next time I visit my blog...I expect to see my menu bar...smiling back at me.


Thank you for your timely response. Don't make me come after you.
Because I will. 


Respectfully,
~Julie

this made me smile, although I'm sure it is incredibly frustrating! Did you know that you don't have to mess with html anymore? Blogger now has a setting to where you can get your tabs at the top of the page without having to mess around with html. I just found this out and it has saved me. Let me know if you want details on how to find it. (I had to ask for help originally.)

Thanks for your comment! We're still hoping for the rest of the money to come in, but either way, I'm so excited to see what God will do in Peru!

Oh Julie! That would make me Cah-Razy! I am so not technically savvy either. I would be having panic attacks... I really hope you figure it out!

Cute pigtails...I don't see your menu bar there yet. Would you like me to threaten them too? Blogger and I have a love hate relationship. LOL
is it still in your html code but just isn't showing up? Crazy.

Kelli said...

LOL...I had to laugh at the threatening Wordpress and Typepad words.

Tanya said...

OMG...I think I almost peed myself after seeing L-Boy's pigtails!!

Courtney said...

{giggle}

Victoria said...

LOL - this is too funny! But what I really love is the pigtails - hes so darn cute! I hope to see the menu bar again too, but I don't see it now...:-(

Foursons said...

First off, thanks for linking up today! I love your name too. :)

Oh my gosh, I would freak the heck out if my menu bar disappeared! How the heck does something like that happen? I hope you or blogger finds it soon and it returns to its rightful place at the top of your blog. Oh my gosh, I just feel so bad for you!

Stacey said...

Isn't that frustrating? I moved to Wordpress after a similar experience!

Bethany @ Organic Enchilada said...

Oh, that stinks! I just put one up the other day and I had no idea how to space it properly, so I just added tabs until everything was centered!

I hope your menu comes back soon.

But mostly I love that picture! I caught the pigtails right away. He is so cute!

Dana said...

That was awesome! And so are the pigtails

Tiffany said...

Thanks for visiting this morning! And your little boy? Just precious! I feel the same way about blogger - the day my spell check button mysteriously disappeared was NOT a happy day. Here's hoping your menu bar returns ASAP!

Katharine said...

Thanks for making me laugh out loud! Hope it comes back...

Aunt Crazy said...

I commend you for spending all that time making that menu bar. I want one, but have no idea how to do it, nor do I have enough "want to" to actually figure it out!

Claudia said...

This is so funny to read - I just LOVE it - and have a big smile on my face now - THANKS!! And of course I hope your Menu bar turns up again...

Lisa said...

We can't live with computers and we can't live without them. Sometimes they are fast and sometimes their slowness drives us nuts. Your menu bar is probably somewhere out in cyberspace trying to find its way home. I hope it comes back soon.

Natalie said...

I'm the least technically savvy person I know, and I would FREAK OUT if that happened!

Sonora said...

Love the pig tails! How frustrating. I'm impressed you put it together yourself though. I don't know if I would have had the time or patience to even try. I hope they get it fixed for you!

Arizona Mamma said...

I'm still caught up on the pig tails. He is going to have your arse one day for that :)

That is really strange about the menu bar. One day my blog signature disappeared, and it turns out it was because the site that hosts it was down. Once it was up and running again...my signature reappeared. Could that be what it is? I know less than nothing about HTML code. So little in fact, that I have bumped you up from your previous pedestal to the highest one I have!!

Marice said...

i feel you! though mine was about seeing my subscribers lost its count :( it was so frustrating!

im your newest follower!

Oh Blogger, does it again. Why do they always have to disappoint???

When I saw the picture of L-Boy, I had to do a double take. I was thinking, maybe it's something in the background that's making it look like pigtails?? I guess I was wrong. Did S-Girl have something to do with that? Too cute.

liz said...

I'm sorry, Julie! Blogger totally STINKS like that. It's beyond maddening!

I hope it shows up again soon!

And I think his pigtails are way better than Maddie's.

Shana said...

This is a great letter of intent. How in the world did it just disappear. That is crazy. I am sorry that happened to you and I have to tell you that your son is adorable.

Heather said...

Cute letter of intent. :)
That is weird about the menu bar. I can understand your frustration- HTML can be so confusing and takes sooo long to put together. I'm sure when you get it back you will copy and save it in Microsoft Word or something, that's what I do with HTML codes I don't want lost. :)

DebM said...

too funny! those pigtails really got me giggling out loud.

Alisha said...

Such a great letter! Sorry you lost your menu bar and I sure hope it comes back soon! lol! I don't even know how to get one... =)

Melissa said...

It took me forEVER to figure out how to make my own button, so I can't even imagine what goes into making a menu bar! So sorry yours is MIA. Blogger better get their booties in gear and find it for you. You should insist on a replacement courtesy of one of their techs, using THEIR time!

Donna said...

Oh Julie - you poor thing. That sucks. The letter, though, is hilarious. I hope you send this through to Google / Blogger. They NEED to hear it!

Cleo said...

Got to tell you this was the PERFECT blog for me to jump back into your life with!!!! :)
So sorry to be a stranger lately.
End-of-school activities...and well, just "livin'" has a way of happening, ya know? ;)
Not sure where it is (pre-kids I wouldn't have been caught dead saying that!) but I have a book of "Letters of Intent" a man wrote to a host of different companies (both big and small). Jerry Seinfeld wrote the intro. for the man I believe. Anyhow, the letters were HILARIOUS! Right up your alley!
Seriously, so sorry the menu disappeared. I can honestly say I feel your pain.
That blasted header of mine took me a solid 12 hours at computer: I crawled away with finger blisters and a trail of blood in my wake as well.
If you need me to cover your back, don't hesitate to call on me. Besides having a "don't take crap" and NON-victim mentality, have some experience in kickboxing.
Let me know.

Still staring at the child and will do anything you ask....

Love the pig tails! He's rocking them!
Sam enjoys a hairbow, right up front. And has dabbled in his girlfriend's headbands a time or two. Looks smashing on him!

Hannah said...

This was great! I love posts that make me laugh :)

Pigtails or not...he is a cutie :)

Icy BC said...
