Weekly Recap 3

Geez! I can't even blog ONCE a week? I might as well throw in the towel and go home.

So what happened to keep me away? Work was insane- no free time there to sneak in blogging. My head cold didn't fully go away until Monday. Then on Thursday I went to get the monkey only to discover that he was sick. AND WAS HE EVER! On Saturday we took him to the doctor only to find he has Influenza A, an ear infection, AND strep throat. So that pretty much wiped out the weekend. He's on the mend now, thankfully.

What did I get done? A good bit on the baby's room, mostly in terms of large furniture moving. I cut up the pieces of the baby's quilt. I sewed one little bag. I finished no books.

Last Monday Catherine at everyday life as lyric poetry posted a great post about babies growing up and becoming independent. It really struck a chord with me and I kept it in my reader all week because I couldn't bring myself to think about it enough to go comment. Perhaps it's the pregnancy hormones, but the idea that my sweet monkey boy won't need me to carry him or snuggle him or help him soon makes me sad. They aren't supposed to grow up! Yesterday we got invitations to send for his 3rd birthday party. How is this possible? I know, I have another one on the way so baby time is not over at my house, but it will be soon for the Monkey. And it makes me a bit sad.

And one little note that I feel compelled to post about- a lot of blogs that I read are switching to partial feeds for various reasons, some of them legit. This is fine. But I just need to say that if you have a partial feed, and you don't say anything interesting or anything AT ALL about what the post it about in that partial feed- I don't go read it. I'm sorry. I understand why you'd chose to do it, but please, grab some attention with those first sentences. I'm sure I'm not the only reader who feels this way.

  1. Good point about the partial feed...you really do have to be a little more creative if you choose that option, eh?

    Don't you love your reader?? I'm posting about Google Reader in the next day or two. :)

  2. Thanks for the shout-out, Lisa. I'm honored! It is mind blowing, isn't it?

    And I totally agree about the partial feeds...

  3. You're welcome, Catherine. It really did resonate with me.

  4. I'm not a big fan of the partial-reader either, although some of my favorite bloggers use it and I still read all of their posts. I do a lot of skimming, anyway, though, unless something really captures me. I couldn't keep up otherwise.

  5. I don't even subscribe to partial feeds anymore. I read a few that do, but I won't add any more that do. It's just too annoying.
