So…what happened to I Heart Publix this week? As many of you noticed, the site had a few hiccups at the beginning of the week. I’ll try to give you the short explanation as the long one would take forever to explain. Basically my site just died from old age – tee hee.
I Heart Publix has been around for a while…over 5 years now. That’s a long time in the technology world–tee hee. Although I have done some upgrades here and there, the custom theme that my site was built on had not been changed in a while. When I did a system upgrade, things kinda flipped out. The update, an old theme plus an outdated caching program that I could never update (due to my theme) was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
As you can see – I have made some changes around here. I hope you guys think they are for the better. I am very pleased so far…even though I am not quite finished yet. I had originally planned all this to take place later but the break caused the timeline to change QUICKLY! We have been doing a ton of testing and so far so good. Of course if you guys have an issues, please let me know. With the changes I know many folks were kinda “stuck” for a while. The quickest thing to get the most current view of the site is to clear your browser cache. As I make changes, you may not be able to see them if you are stuck on an old version of the site. Chances are if you are reading this post you are up to date and all should be running fine.
If you do have issues, it’s most helpful if you can give me screenshots and let me know the browser you are on. Again, we have tested repeatedly but little quirks can pop up. While I am not quite done with things yet, if you guys have ideas or suggestions, I am happy to hear them!

I was right at $40 this week which works for me. I fed my crew and had enough for leftovers for my lunch. I do need to shop this weekend as I think the boys are tired of applesauce and fruit cups in their lunch boxes. We need a big fruit and veggie stock up to get us through next week.
