I am sick of trying to come up with titles for my blogs. I might just start calling them whatever day it is, if I can’t think of anything else.
I know it’s a little controlling of me, but I’ve installed Google Analytics on my site. It’s pretty neat-o. I can see how many people are reading per day, where they are linking from, and how long they stay at my site. I can’t see who they are, but there are maps that show you where your readers are concentrated, as well as list the towns they live in. A little big-brother-ish of me, but it’s neat. Also, a little scary that your computer tracks so much info! Although, these days you should expect that I guess. I mean, it always boggles my mind when people are arrested for crimes, and police seize their computers and they’ve googled things like, how-to-hide-a-body . . . how-to-get-away-with-murder. Anyhow, that’s depressing. I got Google Analytics, and I’m watching you people, so keep reading! And I’ll try to keep writing, and try not to be too boring.
My thought for the week is that I need to chill out a little. I’ve come a long way with the chilling out. Ryan and I were talking last night about how different everything would be if we hadn’t ended up getting married. We’d probably not be in touch with a lot of people from high school. And to this point, he’d be even more extremely laid back, and I’d be wound uncomfortably tight. So, I’ve come a long way. It’s interesting to step back and see the things that affect you. I am so wrapped up in my little habits, that I think it makes me miss out on life sometimes. It really urks me when I do a sink full of dishes, and wake up the next morning to more dishes. Or when I do them before I go to work, and then come home to dishes. It’s not like my husband doesn’t do the big sink full of dishes often, in fact he does them almost evening. But if I lived alone, I’d probably wash each dish after using it, that’s just the way I am. But, really, who cares if the dishes pile up? I have to get over it. It’s a stupid thing to focus my energy on. So, I am going to work on that. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Today is Friday, and I am so glad. I had a great week of evenings this week. My husband and I had dinner together, homemade, every night this week. We ran errands, we planned the weekend, we played with our dog. It was great. I’m looking forward to a great Halloween Weekend!
I got Izzie a blanket at Ocean State Job Lot yesterday. She’s been sleeping on the kitty’s little bed a lot, I think it’s more cozy for her. She’s also been sneaking up on the couch to cuddle with the couch blanket lately. I felt like her bed needed to be more cozy. She loves the new blanket, and snuggled with it all evening last night. She makes me happy, so I like to make her life happy too.
