Well…it was a rough day yesterday…but we got through it.  Justin and I talked (a little) last night…he said he’s never said that its a good idea to go to Vanderbilt…just as he’s never said its a bad idea.  He said I’m getting upset at what he DOESN’T say.  I replied that I get upset because I feel unsupported, and then he lets me believe he IS onboard with me, and when his frustration level hits overload, he blows up on me.  I feel its a communication issue.  We talked a bit and as per the “rule” we’ve had since we got married almost 8 years ago, we didn’t go to bed mad at each other.  There was still some sadness, but we weren’t mad.  And, when he was praying with Bekah before bed, he did specifically pray for God’s will and our understanding.  He is trying.  I know this hurts him as well as me…he’s just doing a very poor job of expressing himself.

For everyone who’s praying for us…we appreciate it so much.  The prayers are what we need more than anything else right now.  I feel in my heart at times that I’ll never hold this baby, but most of the time, I feel a deep sense of peace and contentment, and while I worry and stress, ultimately I feel like things will be ok.  Whether this means I’ll one day hold my baby, or I’ll be burying her because she was lucky enough to get to go straight home…I don’t know.  All I know is that I have to do what I can for her.

A while back, Daddy P did a blog post about Sage, a feed reader from Mozilla, the makers of that WONDERFUL internet browser Firefox. For those of you who haven’t been converted yet…I pity you. Seriously. Firefox is SO much better than Internet Explorer any day! I resisted the change myself for many many months, if not years, believe me. And then, one day…I saw the light. I’ve never looked back :)

Anyway, Sage is an add-on for Firefox, and enables you to look at feeds from various sites without all the clutter and junk. Now, I’m shooting myself in the foot here…my ads on my blog do provide a small income, and Sage eliminates those ads. But…its just the coolest thing regardless, so I’ll live with any reduced income as a result of this post lol (although, you could always click the link for my blog real quick in the sage feeder window if you were really feeling generous hee hee).

Now, way back when Daddy P posted about Sage, I tried it out. I was on my Dell laptop at the time. I was quickly hooked. Then, I won the new HP laptop, and I never got around to downloading and installing the Sage add-on. Friday, I remembered it, and decided to give it another go. I spent an hour or so adding all my favorite blogs, because I realized I hadn’t read many most of them in ages simply due to time constraints, illness, etc.  I can now quickly catch up on them.

But, because I was wondering the extent of what all it could do…I then checked to see if there were feeds for the many message boards I’m a member of…AND THERE WAS.  I quickly added them to the list, and when I checked them…just…wow.  I could, on one page, see ALL the newest posts and replies for that board (ok well one board took more than one page, but I digress).  HOW COOL!!!

Of course, now that I’ve said all this…I realize I have no excuse for not keeping up with my favorite blogs and boards and um, actually commenting instead of just reading…so if I start to slack off again, feel free to beat me about the head and shoulders with a wet noodle, or any other similar soft object ;)

*This is NOT a paid advertisement blog post sadly enough lol*
