Okay, I'm Back!!

Praise the LORD, I am feeling better!!! I am almost 100% back to normal today. I went to church for both services, manned the women's ministry table, and was in my social glory. It's a good thing that I wasn't seriously ill because the men in this house are NOT nurturing at all! I cannot even begin to tell you how un-helpful they were. But I love them anyway...most of the time. No, just kidding, I love them all of the time!

So what's new? What's going on? What has my life been like? Well, let's see... Oh, I know, first up is Entrecard. Boy, oh boy, are people in a tizzy over the new changes. Out of the 300 sites I drop on each day, there have been at least two dozen that are flat out outraged and who will no longer have the EC widget on their sites. I will miss them. I really will. You see, I had JUST figured out how to have the perfect "Favorites" list and now with people leaving, I don't know how the heck to get them off of that list. It's not like I dont WANT to read their blogs anymore but to be honest, some of them I really just glanced at and moved on. So how can I remove them from my favorites if they are no longer even listed on the EC site? I'm so confused.

And speaking of EC, I was blessed this weekend with an abundance of free EC credits compliments of Margie & Edna and Lola's Diner. I thank you all so much that was quite a nice treat.

Okay, here's something to ponder: We have some friends who are in business for themselves and they have family that are in business for themselves and sometimes the two businesses come together on a project or two. Now we all know the "never work with family" rule, but sometimes it can work. Well, what do you do when there comes a time when it doesn not work so BADLY (meaning, one of the family businesses messes up a job with their total lack of professionalism) that it now affects YOUR business? Do you confront? Do you just shrug and vow to not work together again? Personally, I advised my friend to sort of confront her brother on his poor work habits and make him take responsibility for where things went wrong. What would you do?

I'm hoping to go out walking tomorrow and figure out the pedometer issue. Thank you to all of you with the advise. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Thank you to my girl, Danette, who, in my hour of need, ran to the CVS for me and got me Nyquil and ginger ale. You are my angel. :-)

All of my friends from my Disney group are just now getting back from their trips. We're getting together on Thursday so we can hear all of the details. I have to admit, I'm not feeling very gracious right now. Okay, I'm acting like a spoiled brat! I wanted to go!!! Why can't I go??? Poverty sucks!!! I need a vacation!!! Why is life so unfair??? Why hasn't Disney granted me a vacation prize??? I deserve it!!! WAAHHH!!!!!

Okay, I'm off to do laundry. Have a great Sunday!

Glad that you're back and well and doing the laundry once again. Hurrah for your girl, Danette, for getting that Nyquil!

Keep well!

YAY!! I'm glad you are feeling better...have a pouty rant, here on bloggy world, where we all love and understand you, then go and have fun with your Disney Group gals. Let them talk on and on about how much fun they had, and be happy for them! Believe me, your turn is going to come, I just don't know when, and then they'll be the ones who will be happy for you! :)

Congrats on the Entrecard credits! :)

Good to hear you are doing better. Yeah, I am not sure I am in the loop with the EC business but I have noticed a lot of people dropping them. It stinks too because I just set them up on my lists too. BTW, love your blog and have a little award for you (which you probably already got) over here

Glad you are feeling better. I don't really understand why everyone is in an uproar. I've found some really great blogs through EC, like yours. Why would I want to stop? People are just silly. I never really understood why people didn't like paid ads anyway. I mean EC does have to pay the bills somehow.

Glad you're feeling better!

On the family work thing, I'd probably just not do it any longer...I hate confrontation!

Thanks for being one of my top droppers for September!

Nice to meet you.

I was going to paste the link without permission because I had very felt the interest for your blog.

Please link me with the blog if it is good.

Hi Stace... I'm sooo glad you are feeling better... Nyquil is wonderful stuff!.... now if they could just make it easier to

I think there will always be some issue with EC.... at least that's how it appears. I wish that all of my favorite blogs had it though... the toolbar sure does make it quick and easy to find the ones who do... and well... the ones who don't hardly ever get visited by me :( ... by the time I'm finished dropping I'm just all blogged out.

Yes you do deserve that Disney vacation... and a free one too I might add! Hopefully some day Stace... just keep at it.

A Lil Enchanted,

I'm glad you are feeling better! I used to do the whole 300 to get traffic, now I really like the majority that I revisit, almost as a reminder of who I want to see. I guess I would just end up with like 200 buttons on my site. Hmmmm, speaking of, do you have a I have it? See, the whole EC thing is messing with everyone's feng shui.

Once someone leaves Entrecard, you cannot remove them from your Favorites. This has been an issue since the beginning!

Yea! I'm so glad you are feeling better.
