Just a quick life update.

  • My husband has been out of state since the second week of January for work. We’ve seen him only twice since then. Yes, it sucks.
  • I’ve been crazy sick since December. Just different problems. Right now? Acute bronchitis. Going on three weeks right now.
  • I’ve been working a ton lately, mainly to keep busy late at night. However in general I think people grossly over-estimate how much money I actually make. It’s my fault really, I do too much for free. I hate seeing anyone upset over something I can easily fix.
  • Tristan’s vocabulary has exploded. I love it, he’s a chatterbox like me!
  • I miss shooting photos but I’ve never been a Winter person. Not too fond of the cold. Or snow.

Really that’s it. I’m still not sleeping, aside from my normal insomnia this cough keeps me up all night or if I’m lucky and actually fall asleep, my coughing wakes me up.

Aside from all of that, let me know if there is anything you want an update on or have a question to ask me!

Thank you! I bought some daffodils and tulips from the store this past weekend so once they start to open up I will probably take some photos, be all artsy lol.

I hate the cold too. I was taking pictures and need to go back and finish my month pictures. Well get better soon. ;)

Thank you, I will absolutely lose my mind if I’m sick another week. I’m already 3 1/2 weeks in and it’s just getting worse. meh.

I find this time of year really pulls me down. I guess it’s the cold and gloom, and staying in too much to avoid the cold, but I get depressed so easily this time of year. But I haven’t been really sick this winter (knock on wood) so I won’t complain… I keep trying to remind myself that things could be a lot worse.

Hang in there! I hope you feel better soon.

I NEED sunlight so this time of year is rough for that alone and being sick since December? Ugh. So much worse.

If you’re bored and want something to discuss, can you explain just a bit about SEO plugins for WP? I thought they weren’t really necessary, but I’m starting to get the feeling that they are. Do they really help your content get indexed? Thanks!

posted on February 7th 2013 at 3:25PM CDT

Yes they do help your content get indexed AND you just have more control over what the search result displays. My favorite WP plugin for SEO is WordPress SEO by Yoast. I love it SO MUCH!

Thanks for the tip! I was trying All in One SEO yesterday but it seemed a little buggy — I’d put info in and it wouldn’t always save it. I’ll try the Yoast version.

Wow, I can see why you like this one! WordPress SEO is amazing — thanks SO much for the recommendation! :-)

Are you still giving consideration about going to blogher?

posted on February 7th 2013 at 3:26PM CDT

Consideration, yes. It’s hard to plan so far in advance because of my husband’s work schedule.

I’m genuinely sorry you have been struggling. I understand. Illness has been HORRIBLE this year, the worst I can remember in all but one other. I never get so sick that I cannot function and I’ve gotten that way twice this year for long periods of time. Here too, hubby has to work and isn’t always available to help. Its just as hard on him as it is on us. More than anything I worry about his health and how these kind of job expectations affect him. I will refrain from going into a long drawn rant about the entire issue. I know it doesn’t help you feel any better but you are not alone. I do hope the season changes quickly and things start feeling more normal soon! Hang in there as best you can in the mean time. This too shall pass.

It’s been diagnosed as bronchitis and I have fluid in my ears so I can’t HEAR anything… plus it’s really uncomfortable.

It’s really messing with my mood because I’ve been so sick for months now, one thing after another. And now Danny has this and ugh.

Hope you feel better soon! Checking out the new blog right now!

I can’t blame you on the winter thing, I hate the cold myself. I’ve always said if I wanted to deal with snow I wouldn’t live in Texas haha. Hope your feeling better by now =)

I had acute viral bronchitis a month ago. I still have the cough a little bit. It really sucks. And I hope you feel better soon.
