Housekeeping

Couple of housekeeping things...

First of all, I'm starting to feel a little more inspired to be a better blogger! Between being really busy at work, so tired in the evenings and wanting nothing more than to play with Colt I've really slacked off. I'm still obsessed with reading blogs, but I'm finally starting to feel like I can come to life back here again. Hopefully you guys have stuck around. I'm working on some plans for hopefully a new design, some new ideas for posts, etc.

Second, I wanted to just throw out there a few things about comments. I am a terrible commenter but this is not all my fault. A lot of times I read blogs on my phone or while I'm on a break at work. My work computer currently operates on a really old version of Internet Explorer. For some reason, this version does not allow me to comment in the new commenting style of blogger. So unless there is a separate window that comes up (old school, like it's been for ages) I can't comment while I'm at work. So then, I get home and busy and lost momentum to go back and comment. I also read most on my phone while falling asleep or when I first wake up...hard to comment on a phone.

Don't let that confuse you into thinking I'm not reading or thinking about you all! I read every one of the blogs on my links lists and more. Anytime a new blogger comments on my site, I immediately go to your site, get caught up, and add you! So hopefully in the near future I will be a better commenter, but right now it is truly out of my control.

Finally, if you comment on here and have a private blog, please know that I would love to follow you. There's a couple of you recently (fortheloveof_grace, I'm looking at you!) but I don't know how to send you a request. I'm not AS good about following private blogs every day (because they don't show up on my feed reader, and then I forget for a few days, blah blah) but I DO love to read along! So, once you comment, please just assume I'd like an invitation to your blog. My e-mail is on the sidebar so you can send it to me.

If you're reading and have never commented and I don't know about you, please come out of hiding so I can get to know you. Honestly, I LOVE reading new blogs! Especially as many of my favorites have become a lot like me and not writing as much. You can send me an e-mail if you don't want to comment...I won't think you're weird or anything I promise. I mean, I've gone out of my way to meet people from blogland in real life, I'm also pretty open with Facebook if you prefer to get to know me that way. Just friend me!

Ok...housekeeping out of the way. Also, sarah7181 sometime would you please send me an e-mail and tell me about yourself? I love that you leave comments but you don't have a blog (at least not on blogger). So let me know if there is somewhere I can follow you.

The End. Love you all!

LOLJessica! I didn't think anybody ever noticed that I commented. :) Lets see, you are right, I don't have a blog! lol I got sucked into the blog world by Kat (Tough times make you stronger) I talk on a mommy message board that she's on. So, I've followed her for years on her journey through infertility. I'm Sarah, I'm on facebook: Sarah Adair. I'm 28, and married to my DH for 3 years. I'm a SAHM. :) DH is from AThens, TX so it made me laugh when you were talking about First Monday! We go to that too. We live in Houston, and have 2 kids. Isabella just turned 3, and Wyatt is 20 months old. They are 15 months apart. ;) It was a shocker for us too. He's a handful, but I LOVE them being so close together! Everybody asks if they are twins. lol

You are so funny! Glad you got that all out of the way.

Man, I thought you were gonna offer free housekeeping certificates or better yet, tell us you were getting a housekeeper. I am all for that. Because if you get one, I may be more able to convince Nathan that it's a must have.

At least now I know why you don't comment on my blog. Oh, yeah. I don't blog. Whatevs.

Hi there Jessica - I ready your blog all the time. I do have a blog but it is old and I haven't written in almost a year. As soon as we are "with child" I will write a new blog. Write now we are going through some fertility treatments. Not really ready to blog about them just yet. Rather write about the expirance in the past test. Your family is beautiful. Hope all is well.

It's so hard to keep up. . . I know the feeling. I love your blog though and am happy you plan on keeping it up. :-d

Well I will come out of hiding and say that I've been reading your blog for awhile now! Probably for a year or two off and on! A friend of mine told me about your blog back when you guys were trying to get pregnant because my husband and I were in the same boat :) I've loved reading about your sweet family!

I do read your blog and love it! I started a blog a few months ago and have already slacked off on posting on it, but I hope to get better. Congrats on your news that it's a boy! I know Colt and the new baby will be sooo close and you'll have so much fun with them!
