I've been M.I.A the last couple of days. I'm guessing you know where I've been. I've also had just a terrible sinus headache, where my head feels like a 50 pound bowling ball. The weird thing is I can breathe just fine...anyways so that's what I've been up to.
Here I am up at before the crack of dawn to get some kind random post in so you didn't think I'd fallen off the planet. BTW I don't have any kind of back up plan in case I do. If I suddenly disappear for more than a few days well the inevitable might have happened. Lets just pretend I didn't mention the last few sentences. I'm half asleep still and my bowling ball head is still a bit foggy.

I don't have much profound to say. I was going to post about Bossyboy and how he's suddenly becoming less "bossy" and somewhat reasonable where I don't have to throw put him in timeout every 5 minutes for his manic tantrums. I was afraid by mentioning something about it he'd be back to his usual self. Well I guess just thinking about it was enough, cause he's back to normal again, though not near as bad. He's coming around and I'm proud of him for making an effort.

Barb at Chelsea Morning had a very profound post about how she felt about the giveaway frenzy and that people are just racing through the giveaways and not really taking the time to even get to know the giveaway hosts and what their about on their blog. I would link up to it but I think she deleted it for some reason. I totally agree with her on it, and felt bad about my greed so to speak. I do enjoy the giveaways as much as everyone else, who wouldn't love a free stuff smorgasbord? I usually do take my time and select the prizes I feel would be more useful or most enjoyable to me. If the person's initial blog appearance looks appealing or they have a set theme that interests me I take the time to let them know and read through some of their posts. There are a ton of just fascinating people out there. I hope they want to take the time to get to know me as well. I'm pretty sure that was Shannon's purpose to begin with.

Sorry for the whole post of randomness..but wait, I am a whole bunch of randomness, you wouldn't actually expect me to have one continuous post about one subject would you? I didn't think so.

I totally agree with you on the giveaways. It's gotten way out of hand. almost 900 entries! Sheesh! I almost think it needs to be limited to sign up on one or two days and then run for more than a week so people actually have time to peruse other blogs. I know I didn't get any new readers when I did the giveaway. I have picked up a couple of neat blogs to read this time though!
Hope you're feeling better soon and I love your ode to the windows doc!
