There's no better time for housecleaning than when one is waltzing around with a fever. Except. No energy. And limited brain power, too.
Mostly I've been horizontal for the past two days. Fever for a day, lethargic for a day and still not right for a day. Who knows what tomorrow will bring....
A few observations.
This is not the best time of year to be down with a fever. I have no tree, I have NOT purchased a single gift for anyone. Internet shopping might have been a good idea but......
Being horizontal is not fun. Unless it is. In the case of illness, not fun.
That clear liquid thing gets boring as all hell. Besides, who has an appetite anyway. But, I must keep the fluids in my body.
I have THINGS to do... besides the impending holiday..... and my mind won't stop taunting me and seeing the piles of paper all around is not helping matters.
Watching the counter on the Health of Women Study spin like a top was gratification even though I have inside info that the folks at the DSLRF coincidentally and unbeknownst to me, had a bit of a blitz yesterday. Regardless, there are almost THREE THOUSAND more people enrolled. In 24 hours. Much as I'd love to credit this blog with a big bump, the "bump" has far more to do with the exceptional efforts of Dr. Love's devoted staff.
So.... I've decided to do a little blogkeeping. Did you notice anything different? Deadline 2020 calendar is below the posts. It's not because I don't like them anymore, it's kinda like rearranging furniture. Time to feng shui the webpage.
Next up and this is taking a long damn time, The Blogroll. I keep that there because it rearranges when someone posts an update. It's not helpful to me because it's a distraction. SO, in the days ahead, there will be a page of the blogs I am following.
Note to blogger: It would be great if I had the option to make that a "widget" or to switch it to a page.
Note to reader: You will still see the list IF YOU WANT TO by clicking the "Blogroll" page in the banner. It's not THERE yet.....
Note to AM: You will have to remember to check the RSS feed, the blogger dashboard and the wordpress reader to see updates which may prove to be very challenging.
Note to blog writers: I may have started following your blog via google connect or wordpress OR, if you had an RSS feed, that trumped everything. It's the easiest way to keep everything in one spot. I'm halfway down the list. I have to make sure I get a feed SOMEWHERE and then put the link on the new Blogroll page. For most, not a big deal. For me....everytime I open a blog, I never just hit the feed and copy the address. I meander around your spaces. Rereading. Instead of walking around in circles I'm doing virtual circles.
And, I have "stuff" on my mind. Sucky stuff..... Two days ago, I was walking on sunshine for a bunch of reasons. Things are happening and they were unexpected surprises. Surprises like finding out my name was on a government website and it was NOT a TSA watch list for troublemakers. Then, lightning struck. In rapid succession. The fever, the messages and the phone.
Whatever your thing is.... send it my way. I'm a candle lighter. Some people pray, others not so much but whatever your thing is..... I could use some positive energy sent out into the universe for a few people who are really really important and who are in the limbo-land of scans and tests and biopsies and frankly, I'm REALLY REALLY angry. I WAS scared but now, I'm just angry as all hell. Ultimately, I know I will channel the anger for positive change.
First, I have to dry my tears.
And keep the positive energy flowing with the hope that there was never a reason for tears.
Because, there is no crying in activism.
But being fearless? Plenty of reasons for tears to spill.....
