Give Me Simplicity!

I must have reached a point in my life where I finally understand the irresistible draw of simplicity....
I got the bright idea to put up a post yesterday, but to add pictures to it... and I am still trying to get the pictures to go where I want. Why can't blogger have the simplicity of dragging the picture to where you want it, sizing it, and formatting it right there on the edit post page? The html looks like someone took a blender to it and hacked it to pieces. The codes don't even seem to match what I am writing on the page! I want to have the simplicity of my word processing program online! I want my Open Office! Why can't blogger be that simple? Whatever happened to WYSIWYG? The term just does not seem to apply anymore! Or maybe it does, but I want to get what I see in my mind, I want to drag and drop!

Give Me Simplicity!

I want a nice simple, makes sense, quiet sort of life. I know I have three kids, and I don't think anyone can find simplicity and quiet, where things make sense when you are sitting among three children ages 4-14. But I strive to find it anyways. There are things I am learning. Less is definitely better. I find myself getting easily overwhelmed by receiving 50+ emails a day...and that is not counting the spam, nor is it counting the emails from family or friends! I am sitting atop a pile of electronic paper...it would bury my house if it were real paper. I must be saving thousands of trees a year by getting everything electronically...just inconveniencing a few electrons temporarily.
