I hate being down & out ...

2 weeks ago, it was because I pulled my back out like never before ... just as I've recovered (mostly) from that and have been able to get some stuff done around the house (you know - the important things like laundry, cleaning & cooking) I got knocked on my a$$ by a migraine for the past 2 - 3 days.  Yesterday being the "last" day, it was intermittent headaches in about 3 hour clips.  Oh, the joy.

Needless to say, I wasn't on the computer very much - or nearly at all.  I caught up on reading my class emails for Blogging for Scrapbookers and realized that it's perfectly okay if I don't do them.  Yep, that's right ... I'm not doing them.  They provoked some good thoughts & ideas, but I'll save that for another post, another day.

I also realized that there is no human way to keep up with my Google Reader now that I've added all of my classmates' blogs to my list.  There were over 1,000 posts to read in my poor little reader.  I've decided to go through a letter or two of the alphabet per day ... comment on those I can and then add the ones I truly love to my regular reader ... the rest get cleared from my counter & will have to wait for another day. 

By the way ... I've been a bad blogger, I suppose ... thanks to those of you that have commented on the blog - it's a kick getting a comment and even more when you say that you like something that I've posted or written about!  Thanks :)


  1. yes google reader can get too much - I like your approach and may borrow it next week when I know I will have much less time to check them out

  2. I'm sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well! I know what you mean about the Google Reader. At one point the other day I was up to 500 unread posts and feeling guilty. I like your idea and will probably need to narrow things down soon. Hope you're feeling 100% very soon!

  3. Good for you - the class is meant to be fun, and you're not to feel any guilt about doing it your own way! So there, you've been told lol... ;-)
