Making Time for Online

Well, I’m getting there.  I’ve been playing around with this blog and trying to find as many little applications and widgets that will make my online life go a little easier.  As much as I love working on the computer, I really don’t want to spend my entire day on here.  Aside from this, I still have some college classes to finish and I am doing a little bit of job hunting on the side.  Additionally, I’m dealing with my daughter’s health, which has been a little funky lately.  I’m not quite sure what is gong on with her, but her doctor said it’s possible that her mono has reactivated.
That would seriously stink.

The poor girl just started back to school and might find herself homebound again with another illness.
She’s been out the past two days with severe weakness and muscle aches.  There’s no fever, but her throat is a little scratchy.  Swine flu was casually mentioned, but the doctor said she’ll wait until Monday to see if the symptoms improve before she actually runs some blood work.
The school system is so cranky when it comes to missed school days and I’m already stressing from the fact that she has missed 4 days in the past 2 weeks.  What can you do, though, right?  Her health is so much more important than the school getting upset over a few absences.
I do hate it when she is sick, though.  I truly think that is one a mother’s greatest burdens.  Seeing our children hurt, sick, upset…etc…it’s such a nightmare sometimes.

Sorting My Online Life

Is anyone else completely addicted to organizing their virtual world?  I just spent the past 3 hours going through all my Gmail messages and making sure I have them labeled (with fancy colors) and sorted and in all the right places.  I even went through all my contacts and added little pictures to everyone and updated their addresses and and phone numbers and such.  I am also in the process of weeding through and reorganizing my Firefox bookmarks. This is actually a task that is always in progress!

My next stop is my Photobucket account.  It is incredibly un-feng shui right now.  Nothing is sorted at all!
Photos mixed in with blinkies. Videos mixed in with backgrounds. Motivational posters mixed in with glitter text.

Everything is all willy-nilly and it drives me batty.

On a side note, it sure has been a while since I posted.  I think I really need to update the look of this place.  It’s just plain ‘blah’.
