Down with the Sickness

It’s a quarter after one. I am tired, exhausted. Last weekend Steve brought home something from work that made us all sick. He had a cold, I got the cold, and then baby got the cold. Steve’s symptoms were like stuffiness. I have runniness. We all have headaches. Elli and I have sore throats (not sure if Steve did). Anyway, we’ve all been rundown with this stupid illness. On top of that, I have been so stressed out lately that I actually fainted the day after Thanksgiving. I have been non-stop dizzy; I should go to the hospital but my blood pressure is normal.

Last night, Elli began barfing her first real-kid barf. That is to say — this puke was chunky and thick. If you know formula spit up, then you know the difference. It was awful. I sprang into action. This poor kid was lying on her back when she began vomiting so I had to flip her over because she was so scared. It was like The Exorcist. Puke spray all over her pillow and the bed. I made sure she was done, threw everything into the bathtub, doused it with detergent and hot water, and then cleaned Elli up. Poor baby was so scared. I was scared cause it was my first experience and of course I’m dizzy AF and shaking.

We made it through though. Somehow, some way — we made it.

Anyway, I am also going through my finals this week. So far I’ve got one A and one B. I have two more classes of which I am sure I will get another A and a C. It’s hard to think with this fogginess in my brain, but I am trying. Elli is sleeping in patches of two to three hours, up five or six hours, sleep two to three hours… this mommy is so tired.

I have big plans for this winter vacation. I still have to wrap presents and make up Santa’s letter for Elli. Anyone interested in having one custom made for them? Comment below with what you’d like it to say and I will create the crap out of it πŸ™‚

I plan on adding more css designs, codes, and cheats. I also want to re-add my cupcake liners and toppers. I want to throw up my old pixel graphics and stuff. I want to restore FHR to his Hey Day. πŸ™‚

Let me know if you want a custom Santa letter OR you can let me in on YOUR plans for the wintry season OR BOTH!!! xoxo

Free CSS: Christmas Cookies

This CSS was made for the WordPress themeΒ Twenty Twelve. I also used the Jetpack plugin and enabled custom CSS. I wanted something kind of fun and “flirty” for Christmas this year. It’s not wild, but still pretty I think. I made some different kinds of adjustments. I made it so there is no “sub menu” shown when you mouseover. So, for instance in the thumbnail, I put my links page under my “headers” page. You see in the thumbnail that the header is being mouseovered– it fades — but you don’t see my sub menu!

I placed a line in the code so you can know where to delete if you’d like to remove that bit of code and have the sub menu show up (I did not style it, so it will look whacky.)

Here is the code. Remember, you have to have Twenty Twelve installed and activated.
You also should have Jetpack and custom CSS enabled!

 

Welcome back to FHR!

Welcome toΒ Fly High, Rocketship!Β I just wanted to let you know what’s happening within my little website…

  1. I had to stop blogging a couple years ago due to harassment; I’ve tried to keep doing it but was afraid of the bullying and crap again so I stopped.
  2. I deleted flyhighrocketship.com because I was angry and hurt — Since my blog was so successful, to purchase it (after depreciation) would cost me around 1K USD. So… I’m now fhr.NET
  3. I am going to go back to blogging. I’m tired and stressed out because I cannot freely talk about what’s happening in my life. I have noticed my anxiety is crazy bad these days. So,Β I give no fucks anymore.

I am sorry if I hurt your feelings, but I cannot keep suppressing my own to spare yours. If you are offended by anything you read here, don’t read it.

I will be adding a disclaimer and appropriate policies soon.

Anyway, welcome back, folks.

CSS: WordPress Jetpack Social Icons Widget

These codes are only good if you have Jetpack installed, social network widget enabled + custom CSS, and have your username in the sidebar widget.

  • You can get Jetpack here
  • To input usernames (after Jetpack enabled)
    • Go to Appearance
    • Widgets
    • Scroll down to Jetpack Social Icons
    • Add to your sidebar
    • Enter usernames
    • Save

Here are some codes for you:

for these icons that fade and rotate:

I also decided to make a simple one that would just make the icons one color and change color on mouseover:

change “hotpink” to your desired color for the regular link
change “turquoise” to your desired color for the link when you mouseover
get some hex codes here (replace the word with #hexcode)

BONUS, here is a blank CSS cheat sheet for you with all of the different social networks defined if you would like to use only a few or change things on your own πŸ˜‰

 

Home Street

I found this super fun, super simple, super neat game for my phone. I sometimes want to try new things and I was looking for something that could be cute (to look at) and fun (entertaining). I just happened to find this new game called Home Street. It is available for both Android and iOS systems ~ and it’s not a pain in the ass like some games (I’m looking at you The Sims Mobile!) You get a good amount of “money” to start the game and it’s very easy to earn, to play, and win! I love it. Unlike TSM, you don’t have to worry about your character needing to go to the bathroom or feeling like they need to socialize. However, this game is REALLY big on building communities and helping each other out. That’s also part of why I like it: people are very friendly!

Here are some screen shots from my game:

I have made a group in this game (cost me 2000 coins BTW) called “Cupcakes” and it’s a low-key, laid-back group. I try to chat up my members and such (looking for people to monitor it, too.) Here is a screen shot of my logo, group info, and name:

Please, look for me using those parameters. I would love to have more members. The benefit of groups is you get some help along the way, can message/chat, join in the events, and earn extra coins and other things like tickets and gems!

I also made a (sort of long) video touring the game, the Halloween event, and more:

So, that’s it my darling readers. Come join the fun and find me! I’d love to be friends πŸ™‚
