5000 Hits

I saw that I was getting close to 5000 and thought it would be fun to do a spotlight on the person who was my 5000th visitor. So the other day, Valentine's Day as I recall, I get on my blog and realize....I'm my 5000th visitor. I would highlight myself but I am pretty sure that is what I have been doing for months now. So Congratulations to the person who visits my blog the most......ME!

For all you other visitors out there, thanks for coming on by. Feel free to sit a spell.

Tomorrow is President's Day and therefore we get a day off. Yea right. I get to work (because my company is switching transcription software this week and we are very, very behind because of the preparations and the recent wave of influenza that hit Utah County), study for a midterm in YA Lit which I am feeling very unprepared for, and in between all this keep my hubby happy because when he has a day off he wants to "go somewhere."

H's definition of this is to get out of the house. He gets edgy when he sits around, whereas I am happy to do just that. I called myself lazy today because I don't have to be 'doing' all the time, but H says that I am 'content.' Yep, that is exactly it, I don't have to do anything or go anywhere to be happy. I can get on the computer, watch a DVD, read a book, call a friend....but apparently these things don't interest H. He has to GO-GO-GO!

So my day off is really one of the busiest days for me. Yes, I am throwing a pity party so come and join me. If you have a "day off" tomorrow tell us all about what you plan to do.

Congrats on the 5000! I hit it every day. Maybe if you had a prize for 10000 I would really work for it! :) Sorry you have to work tomorrow. That just stinks! Here is Wade's new blog and the first and only entry so far is great. You two should be writers full time, making oodles of money! power2L.blogspot.com

I'm glad I wasn't the 5000 because I would have been really embarassed. I check your blog alot. I don't have tomorrow off but I can't complain.....on the business answering machine I had to leave the message that the office would be closed Jan. 24 through Feb. 11. Yikes, I guess I won't get any sympathy because I don't get tomorrow off. Unfortunatly, you can add Dale to UT's influenza list. Poor guy, he's been one sick guy. I wanted so badly to bring him home and take care of him but Abbie and Dane did a great job. Now I just need to keep my fingers crossed that they don't get sick. Enjoy your day off.

Adam is going skiing and I am babysitting several children that are not my own. I volunteered for this so my kids would have other kids to play with and I wouldn't have them complaining all day about how bored they are. That is my day, pretty exciting aye.

Hey, Did you know that site meter has a setting you can choose so that the counter doesn't count you when you go to your own blog?.... Just in case you really wanted to spotlight someone you could do it on 10,000.

I was thinking we might try to visit you but I guess you'll be pretty busy. :(

I'm sure at least 1000 of those hits are from me... your favorite reader! Actually its because I don't ever seem to be able to read blogs in one sitting because of work and stuff.

I can totally relate to wanting to have a day off that doesn't include doing anything. That is my dream day. To just laze around doing nothing but what I want to do. No demands on my time or my attention. But I'm told I must be careful what I wish for.

How do you monitor your hits anyway? (that's all I want to know) 5,000 doesn't surprise me at all though because you are so funny and insightful. By the way, i totally agree with you with the blogging and music thing....they don't mix too well. I tend to check mine at night when everyone is off to sleep and then BAM someone's d-a-m-n music starts blaring. Once again, great insight!
