I'm Jumping Ship For The Moment

I'm jumping ship from Blogger to Wordpress for now and hope the feed thing works there.
Check me out at I'm still getting things moved over and figuring out all the bells and whistles but if you love me wont you please be my neighbor and catch up with me there? Pretty please? :)

Little Mom Blogger Has Lost Her Feed

Little Mom Blogger has lost her feed
and doesn't know where to find it.
Leave it alone and the readers will come home
updating their feeds to find it.

Yeah I don't what the deal is, but if your reading this than your probably not reading me in a feed reader-bless you.
I never mess with my feed ever, cause that's way out of my league. I did check it one day last week and found that Google now owns feedburner (surprise surprise) and it appeared that I probably needed to transfer my feed for Google. Nothing was supposed to change but it appears after doing that something did. I should have just left well enough alone.
I have read all the troubleshooting steps and did them to no success. Let me know if you do actually get this and read me in a feed. KThanxBye!

Drained and TMI

I'm not sure what the deal with me lately is, but the energy level is zero. It's been this way for a few months. I try to have a "regular" bedtime (whatever that is) but I can't even come close to functioning until almost noon.
I get up at the crack of dawn to get all the boys ready and to school and then I come home, clean up the kitchen, check the e-mail/blogs and then I literally have to lay back down, as my eyes absolutely will not stay open for anything. I've tried to be productive and it just wears me down even further. I'm not a coffee drinker unless it's at Big Bucks and in the form of a frappaccino. That is just not in the budget for a daily fix to my exhaustion.
It's really sad when Bossy Boy demands my attention and all he can get out of me is a head nod. It's not easy playing Pokemon when you don't know what your doing in the first place and then doing it in zombie mode. I just tell him pick my card for me and choose my defense...zzzz. I'm lucky if I even finish my sentence that far. Thankfully he is very self entertained for the most part.
So I'm thinking there's more to the story than I'm just a lazy a** (which is plausible but I'm denying it) so I finally found a gyno, as I need my girly parts checked anyway.

I've had some other "issues" as well and so maybe 1+1= some thing's up and I'll get it nipped in the bud. I'm sure your ever so glad that I mentioned this but I figure maybe that's why the blog has slacked off as of energy to put a coherent thought together...barely enough energy to read others blogs, much less comment.

The yard alone is whipping my tail. I feel, like I'm tending more to the yard than any other household duty. We finished up the back yard this weekend. I mowed one side of the front and trimmed half the bushes (I just could not do any more) and will try hopefully with my child labor force in acted to help finish the rest tonight. The thought of if just makes me want to take a nap right now.

I really didn't mean for this to be a cheese and whine post, but sometimes you just gotta.

WW A to Z: M is for Memorial Day Weekend

The next best thing to going to the lake.

What's On Your Night Stand?

I mentioned earlier that I planned to give you a low down on the method to my madness of how I go about choosing what books I read and why. I figured there was no better time to do that then this months edition of Whats On Your Night Stand? hosted by 5 Minutes For Books.

98% of the books I read come by recommendations from other bloggers/word of mouth. I admit I am a mainstream reader and read what everyone else is reading. I've read so many great books in the last few months just from reviews of other bloggers or simply going through other peoples to read piles. I also feel that I have to catch up with previous top reads from the past couple of years, as I really slacked off in the reading department. Having no T.V. other than watching DVD's these past few months, has tripled my reading progress.
I also have joined the Classics Book Club and have broadened my horizons by re reading some oldies but goodies and reading some oldies that I hadn't read before. I'm trying to read at least 2 classics a month. This month was Little Women.

There was a meme type list going around facebook a few months ago that had 100 books listed that asked you to cross off how many you have read. Most of the books were classics and some that are modern classics. I had read quite a few of the classics listed, but didn't feel that they really counted since it was so long ago. At the time I did the meme, I could only honestly list 23 of the 100. I felt really ashamed with that number and have made a goal to read at least 50 of the 100 on the list this year. I'm at 39 now. I will say that some of the books on that list I have no real desire to read War and Peace- uhm thanks but no thanks.

Now for what's on the nightstand for June-
-Everyone is Beautiful- I'm on the waiting list at the library and crossing my fingers I get it before next week so I can join 5 Minutes for Books on the discussion.

-Atonement by Iwan McEwan

-The Great Gatsby - I'm debating on whether I want to read this one for my classics read, as there's so many others that I know are better. I did read it in high school and think that may be that's good enough.

-The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night Time Written from the perspective of a high functioning autistic boy.

-Undress Me In The Temples of Heaven -A travel memoir to China that didn't go as planned.

-The Grapes of Wrath -Classic read of surviving the dust bowl.

That should get me through the month of June. I can't wait to see what everyone else is reading.

I Heart Faces: Silhouette

This week's I Heart Faces challenge is silhouettes. This one was definitely one of the more challenging pics I've done. It took me over a dozen shots to get what I was looking for. I'm having a blast just playing around each week with the different challenges, if anything I'm learning so much! Which I'm guessing is the entire point.
