I just have some random, unrelated things to babble about today, in no particular order.

  • First, thank you for all the amazing feedback and support in regards to my post about anxiety. I feel more empowered than before to take charge and do something about these feelings I’m having.
  • I switched my commenting system to IntenseDebate. Somewhere in the import, some comments got eaten. I don’t know why most of my comments were imported but some were not. I’m frustrated, but for now I’m sticking with I.D. because I like the system. You’ll notice that pretty much all of my posts after December have 0 comments, which depresses me because it makes me look sad and friendless but the comments are there, somewhere, in cyberspace. I re-imported and everything is fine now. Yay!
  • Have you read that Cora’s Law is in the process of being passed in Indiana? Cora’s Law would make it mandatory for newborns to be given a pulse oximetry test to screen for a potential CHD.. And it’s all thanks to Cora and her amazing mother Kristine! I am so proud of Kristine for fighting so hard and tirelessly making sure that Cora continues to save lives!
  • I’m going away for the weekend. Friday through Sunday. I’ll be off on a chorus retreat, barbershopping my butt off. So, internet silence from me. I know you’ll miss me terribly but please try and carry on with your daily lives. This is going to be the longest I’ve ever been away from Nellie. Eeeeeek.
  • My 12 in 11 project is going so well I’ve finished 2 books this month. I read The Hunger Games and on Sunday I bought Catching Fire. I finished it last night. I’m not obsessed or anything. I certainly didn’t look up mockingjay pendants on Amazon or anything like that.
  • Seeing bunches of Blissdom Tweets makes me feel geeky & spazzy and anxious for August, when I will be attending BlogHer ’11. I can’t wait!
  • I tried watching The Kids Are All Right last night with Josh. Great acting, boring as hell. I don’t get why it’s nominated for an Oscar, and I’m usually down with the Oscar Noms. It was like watching someone’s real life, except without any really great drama. I turned it off before we got to the “conflict” of the movie but I read about it on Wikipedia and I was like, meh. Whatev.
  • Abrupt end to the blog post.


  1. I wondered what happened to my comment on your anxiety post! I was like … was that a bad response and she deleted it? LOL. Oh well!

    Have a fun weekend retreat!

    I wanna go to BlogHer! It's not going to happen this year though. I'm thinking maybe Blissdom next year… we'll see. I find BlogHer intimidating, it seems SO huge!

  2. I love random blogs!

  3. I live in Nashville and I am so mad I can't attend Blissdom, but it's all during my work hours. :(

      I've got my retreat this weekend, so I couldn't have gone even if I'd been able to scrounge up the funds! But Blissdom is only 2 hours from me (Chattanooga) so I could have gone if scheduling would have been different!

  4. I'm so envious! My BIL lives in SD and I wish I could go, but its just not in the future for me this year. I'd love to go to a conference in the future though.

    Being away from your little one is tough stuff. I just went through that for work about three weeks ago.

  5. Mommy_Boots says:

    we miss you!

  6. I meant we miss you

  7. Wait! What is Blissdom?
    Off to google it.
    Hope you had fun during your time away.
    Also, thanks for your comment about advice for changing up my blog. I will email you soon.
