I could get used to this.

I have discovered this sick thing isn't half bad. Other than having to sit on my two-year old to get her to take her antibiotic twice a day, things are pretty nice.

I don't have to teach my primary class because I haven't been on my antibiotics long enough yet. A day off? I'll take it!

An entire Sunday afternoon to myself while the kids are napping and Daddy is at church...not to shabby!

Quiet so that I can surf the blogging highway and actually read a blog without ten interruptions...PRICELESS!!!


Also, if anyone can inform my computer illiterate brain as to what bloglines are and how to use them, I would be eternally grateful.

I'm pretty sure "Bloglines" is like Google Reader where you put in all your blogs and it automatically tells you when they've been updated.

Glad you had a fun sick day!

Bloglines is awesome. It's how I keep up with 40 blogs. My friend Sariah once said she had almost 100 she likes to read, and that's how she keeps up with them all. It's pretty easy to use.

I'll take a day like that. You say all I need is strep throat?

I use bloglines. My (recently pared down) list is 88, including several news feeds and craigslist boards. It saves a lot of time because you don't go to blogs that haven't been updated. Sometimes I like google reader better because bloglins isn't always great about including pictures from posts and I can't stalk as efficiently if I actually have to go to the site to see the pictues. ;)

Hmmm... On the negative side - I have a vacation to plan for and a million things to do before we go, so low energy is probably not the best way to go this week...

HOWEVER, on the plus side - my kids might stay quiet and out of my hair while I work...

decisions, decision...

I love bloglines. Its really easy to set up and it saves a lot of time! Sometimes it doesn't update right away with new posts but all in all its great!

I'm glad you had a fun sick day, those are rare and nice!

Glad you are enjoying your sick day! And that everyone is feeling better. I use Netvibes, not because its better than bloglines, but because I happened upon it first. It does make a huge difference in cutting down on blogging time!

Heidi said...

Glad you got to have a relaxing time, even though your all sick. Feel better!

Gabriela said...

The sick days where the kids are actually sick (sick like laying around the house sleeping and watching movies) are usually pretty good days for me. It's when they are to sick to go to school, but have have their energy back, now those days scare me.

Hope she gets better!

Totally do bloglines-it has saved me SO.MUCH.TIME.

Gina said...

Sorry you've been sick, but glad you got a day to take care of yourself.

Get well soon!

Gabriela said...

. . . And Happy Birthday (belated now? I have had another rough few days:( Tomorrow: The Search for Zofran). Hope you had a great day.

JD said...

I just converted to bloglines a couple of days ago. LoVE it!

Hope you feel better, and I am glad you got a day off.

Happy Birthday the other day too.

Nettie said...

(Hey, Steph. I just noticed Thoroughly Mormon Millie has a link to bloglines in her side bar.)

Dee said...

Funny to me that we as mommies can be thankful for something like a sick day, but I (*blushing*) have to admit, I've been where you are too!! :)

Rest well and feel beter soon!

Amber said...

Judging from everyone's comments, Bloglines sounds cool. Let me know how the setup goes!

Tori :) said...

I'm glad you got a day off- even if you had to be sick to get it!!

Pattie said...

Now there is a way of looking at a bad situation and making it a positive! I must admit to a VERY selfish thought....when my kids get sick, things are sooo much quieter around here...not that I like it when they are sick. In fact, I can't stand it...but oh, the quiet...the quiet is so peaceful.

utmommy said...

I've heard about bloglines and they sound great, I need to learn how to set them up too!

Glad you had a fun sick day.

Paula said...

Rest!! Enjoy the rest.

Sometimes being sick does have it's advantages! I am totally confused by the blog lines too. I have been working on that for awhile now. I guess I am CLUELESS.

Tori :) said...

I didn't even know bloglines existed until I read this post. Thanks!!
