Winding down

The car doors were frozen shut this morning; ice on the windshield took five minutes of defrosting to melt. And Superman got to stay in the warm bed to wake up whenever he was done sleeping - the sole advantage to his current status of joblessness.


I have three more days of work. THREE!


I don't know when they'll do an internal examination on me (maybe not until my due date since I'm normal normal normal) but if they do, and they determine that I'm not dilated or effaced at all then I'm considering calling my boss and seeing if I can put in a few days at work, if I'm needed. Or they might say, "you're such a slowpoke. Stay home." Which I'm more than happy to do. I just want to spend as much time with my baby as possible.


Seriously people. What method do you use to keep track of the blogs you read? I need to be told!

  2. Now that your due date is less than two weeks away, I'm going to be checking this site about two dozen times a day. Just wanted you to know I'm the psycho who's jacking up your stats. :)

  3. I don't use anything but blogrolling and I miss all kinds of things, esp since I have not had any time at all in Feb. and was out of town too. I just couldn't make bloglines work for me.And I can't believe you are already full-term! I can't wait to see pics of the little sweetie!

  4. You might want to check out the NewsFox extension.

  5. I have a folder in my Firefox toolbar called 'Feeds'. It in turn has several folders of RSS/Atom feeds, one of which is labelled 'Blogs', which are full of feeds. The articles/posts that I have visited show up as grayed out. To check for new articles, I scroll through the folders vertically and see if there's anything I haven't read.I have several feeds (such as four from Digg) that I do not attempt to read every article, but I cherry-pick what I like based on the titles.The feeds are updated automatically every half hour, or I can manually trigger an individual update (or a global one, using the Reliby extension).Other nice feed-related extensions that I use are LiveBookmarkThis and LiveClick.This approach requires that I be online, which is not a big issue for me. If I really want to see the feed content while offline, I can pull up the feed file. The main drawback is that I can't see what's in the feed, just the title, so, I can simply visit the page or not. There might be an extension out there that shows you a preveiw of the text on mouse-over. I also have to start back at the Feed folder for every page I open; I would prefer to be able to middle-click on several to open new tabs without the menu being closed.
