Go Forth and Read

Ok, I could tell the story about how Chance got his stitches out today, then promptly hit his head again, slightly reopening his wound. And there are lots more stories that are funny, ironic, or downright crazy that I could tell about life lately. But it's after 1 am, and I really only have enough energy to tell you this...

Many people have asked about how I keep up with certain blogs, and I wanted to let you in on my little secret. Actually, it's common knowledge, at least to computer people like Chuck. But one day Chuck decided to have mercy on my soul as he watched me click thru my long list of bookmarks to see who might've posted something new. It's called the Google Reader. Just so you'll sound smart, I should tell you it's called an "RSS feed." Just please don't ask me what RSS stands for. Anyways, all you have to do is go to and put in the various websites/blogs that you want to keep up with (If you don't have a google account, you'll have to set that up. If you have gmail, you have a google account. Oh how I love gmail for email, but that's another story). Then when you go to this google reader page again, it'll show you all of the newest blogs.

With all the time you save you can actually do something worthwhile, like feed a newborn, bathe 2 grimy little boys, or even the ultimate: take a shower!

Or maybe that's just me.

[PS For you myspacers, you don't have to worry about a reader, since you can just subscribe to the blog in myspace. Basically you already have your own RSS feed. But the Google reader will work for myspace blogs as well as all websites.]

I know you have told me about that before. I haven't done it, but I will today! :)
I am praying for you Angie! :) Love,

Oh my gosh! I always wondered if that existed outside of myspace...I am going to have so much more time on my hand! Thanks!
