At least that's what my blog stats are telling me. Why Thursday?
I wonder how many readers I'd lose if I were to adjust my feed settings to stop sending the entire entry, and just the first few lines instead. More site visits as a result or less? The two people I follow who do this (*ahem*Leah*ahem*SAJ*) are certainly worth the extra step of clicking out of my feed reader and onto their actual site. But if all my feeds were like that I wouldn't be a happy camper at all. I can hardly believe I ever used to refresh my favorite blogs obsessively, hoping they had updated NOW. Or NOW. Or NOW. Or maybe if I just keep hitting refresh they will have updated.... NOW. Thank goodness for RSS.
Also, Kem has a fever of 101.5 and has been asleep most of the day. Poor, poor girl. She's completely miserable with a runny nose, too. All she wants to do is snuggle and rest her head on my shoulder which I absolutely LOVE, but I really wish she would feel better. It's rough being a sick baby. I wish she could tell me what I could do to make her feel better. More clothes? Less? Does me patting your back like this make your tummy hurt? Does your gurgling tummy mean you're hungry or hurting? Are you thirsty? Do you want to rock or hold still? Sick babies are so heartbreaking. A few times she thought she was feeling well enough to get down and walk over to visit with the dogs but by the time she got half way across the room she had changed her mind and turned around, crying for me. She's probably all achey and sore and dizzy. This is the sickest I've ever seen her. Glad she's getting it out of her system now because it would really stink to be sick on her very first birthday (coming up on Thursday!)
