I should have known.....

You're really NOT here. I started checking around to figure out why this blog gets so many views but no responses. Here's the thing: it's NOT really getting so many views.

I got suspicious when i put up the previous blog post right and right away it got a hit. That seemed weird to me because i don't have any alerts like that. So I clicked through my blog audience and noticed something called 'vampirestat', also 'adwatch' and something with 'secret' in the title. These links showed having the most views. Thankfully I didn't click on their URL but when i Googled these I found that many bloggers were asking the same question. I found this site above which explains that they are not legitimate views at all. Makes so much sense to me now.

I'm putting this link here so if you are indeed reading and have a blog you need to be careful. I am not doing it so that you too can find that you are not as popular as you thought you were on your blog, (which is a blow to the ego, i have to admit)  I'm doing it to warn you NOT to click on those sites in your audience if you see them.

Well i guess there goes THAT post-retirement career! :)

Plus... i feel kind of stupid.

Last Book: two of them: Sisterland and Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock
Book i'm wanting to read: Why I Jump by that 13 year old autistic boy. (Jon Stewart really talked this book up earlier this week on his show in a big way and made me curious.)
No run: Day 5 because of foot.

What happened to your foot?

I still read your blog, even if I don't comment every time. I don't feel I have anything to say anymore. About anything. I'm boring.

AMANDA! i miss you! You are so not boring! If YOU are boring then i am about as interesting as a Walmart coupon shopper buying kitty litter.

I hurt my foot digging out packed dirt before spreading 5 yards of beauty bark which took me something like 6 continuous hours. It was because of how i shoved my foot on to the shovel i think. It's so stupid. I haven't been able to run for a week and it's been making me cranky.

Just what is wrong with boring?

Almost everything about my life is boring, but that's OK with me.

Just a sampling of the exciting (non-boring) events of my week:

Thursday: went to a police chaplain's fund raising dinner. Out until 9:12 PM.
Friday: Two, two exciting events: Filled up my car with gas. Washed the windshields too. Made tomato soup and grilled cheeses sandwiches for dinner.
Saturday: Went in to work to catch up on my documentation. Listened to a driveway pavers sales' pitch. Am now considering a trip to the grocery store. I'l keep you posted. . .

i am so boring that at 7:30 tonight i felt like it was time to go to bed because it's so dark now that it feels like 10:30. And pretty soon 6:30 is going to feel like this!
