Checking You Out

No, this post has nothing to do with the cashier at the grocery store!  

I’ve been catching up on blog reading and must say I love it!  I’m still not ready to get that thingy on the side of my blog that puts the most recently updated blog on the top, but maybe I should look into that (have hubby do that for me), because I’ve been reading for 2 hours already!  Sheesh!

Playing Catch Up

So it’s one of those days where I just woke up feeling awful- all crampy and sore and don’t talk to me for 5-7 days or I might bite your head off- you know, Aunt Flow!? Yeah, kay, just in case you weren’t following.  So much for cleaning the house.  Cleaning is so overrated.  I’ve gone long enough without cleaning and I don’t have the “I’m working on the Preparedness Fair” excuse this weekend, bummer! I’m taking it easy, would love to sleep, but the kiddos won’t allow for that.  So hey, I’ll just leave snacks in easy to reach places.  Cartoons are on non stop, and I hate admit it, but my kiddo is still in pjs!  That has only happened like, well, uh, I don’t know if that’s ever happened before in this house!  Remember, OCD me- we have unwritten rules like no breakfast or going downstairs until we’re dressed for the day.  Hey, today pjs are clothes and we’re dressed!

So I’m catching up on some of the blog posts I’ve only been thinking about, but that never quite make it to the press. Enjoy all the pics.  I guess my kids do look alike now that I’ve been digging in Mikey picture archives and comparing to Joshy’s current pics.  Yeah, cleaning can wait.  I love that I can do something productive from a couch.  This is great!

I Would Walk 500 Miles…

Blogging is so much fun!  I think I enjoy reading others’ blogs and following the links to all their friends (c’mon I know you do it too!) to see what strangers and long lost people I know are doing in their lives and pick off some cute ideas for my blog. 

I’ve managed to find a ton of people from my home ward growing up, some people who were in previous wards, and there are quite a few people in my current ward who have blogs!  And then there’s the total strangers I’ve come to meet through blogging.  I never thought some of these people would be the blogging type, but that goes to show you what I know!!

I must say that some people have no fears of identity theft, crazy stalkerish people, or the chance that posting too much info just might get you into some trouble down the line.  I haven’t posted as many pics as I’d like because I too have a small “fear” of my site getting into the wrong hands or attracting the wrong kind of people.  Hello, no stalkers please!!

I’m so surprised at the many pictures of houses with nearly everything listed just shy of the street address, families names and birthdays listed, and pictures of naked kiddos!  Are people really that naive to think that nothing bad can or will happen or am I just overly cautious and leery when I see this stuff?  Don’t get me wrong, I am finding that I too have posted too much info myself and haven’t removed it, but I guess when I see it on others’ sites then it makes me realize how unsafe it could be.  There are some psychos out there that would trek 500 miles to your city,  find your house, and do who knows what to your family, so people please…. be more careful and cautious when you post!!  

I guess the easy fix would be to only allow my blog to have log in access, but then how would all you wonderful people find my blog and catch up on my little ole life?  Hmmm.  I’m allowing all to view freely; no restrictions here and hopefully not any time soon!
