ugh....

I really try to be a positive person and I try not to complain too much on here but I just have to say I am so tired of sickness!!! The kids and I have had very few "healthy" weeks since Halloween....and yet again I have a horrible head cold and feel miserable.
I am pretty sure it's because it's Belle's first year of pre-k--all those new germs she's sharing but still..........
We wash our hand, cover our coughs, I sanitize things....we take extra Vitamin C....guess it's just not our season.
Anyhoo...I have some things made for a few days so you still have things to look at but not sure I'll be around to comment.
Speaking of which..how do you feel about comments? do you only comment when you receive a comment? how much time do you spend on comments? I love leaving comments but it's up to about 3 hours a day that I'm on blogs doing that....while I love it, I might have to start setting a timer for an hour and maybe try to hit your blog every few days or something.........
why aren't there more hours in the day?
okay, enough rambling...I'm off to nap land.....

I love comments, but like you it takes a big chunck of my day. I try to focus on a few blogs a day making sure I get to everyone at least once a week. If it have extra time, I visit a few more. I also sometimes just keep it short and sweet.

Hang in there!

Aww Danni! So sorry to hear you're feeling under the weather. I remember when Andrew started SK, oh my goodness...that child was sick ALL the time!! Ashleigh never went through it that bad, so who knows. Hang in there though.

Comments..I love to send/receive, but I do find it takes alot of time, so I sit for an hour each morning while I have my coffee and hit the blogs and then try to get to more in the afternoon if I can. We can just do the best we can, right?

Sweet dreams! Feel better soon!

I'm sorry you're sick again.

I spend a lot of time commenting on blogs too. Those who comment on my blog daily or almost daily, I always comment on theirs if they have a post. Those who don't post consistently to my blog get about a comment once or twice a week. There are times though where posts do slip through the cracks and I think that's blogger fault with updating in a timely manner.

I know, the commenting can get a bit much hey and then I don't know what I put on that blog last time and did I already say that!!! Gets a bit much so I try and keep it simple as like you, it would be like hours in my day so when do I craft!! But I do love when I get a comment, even just an 'hi'! Feel better! My daughter has been the sick one in our house and 'knock on wood' I have been fine so far!

Sheri said...

Danni.. I wish I could give you a great big, gigantic hug! My grandson started pre-school this year and I feel like we all been sick non-stop too. No fun to say the least.
Regarding comments.... and as the always happy to hear from you recipient of your comments, kiddo, you just cannot possibly do it all. 3 hours is just way too much. I hereby give you permission to take done much needed time for Danni. Big (((hugs)))

Lynette said...

So sorry to hear you are sick again. Bummer! My daughter and grandson have been sick a lot, too. (Our son-in-law manages to stay well somehow!)

Of course I love to get comments. Doesn't everyone? :) But I often wonder how you can possibly manage to do the commenting you do, while still stamping all those cards, managing all those blogs, and taking care of two kids single-handedly! You just take care of yourself!

Michele Spera said...

Oh Danni feel better:-( I had this when ryan started his first year of full day school, we were sick more then well. Next school year will be better hopefully
Hugs

Danni, I too give your permission to not comment as much. I try to comment when others comment on my posts, and then I have a list on my computer of those that I visit regularly...especially if I want someone to notice what I'm doing. I do notice that traffic is down when I don't comment, but I'm okay with that. My husband liken's commenting on blogs to politics...the more hands you shake/the more blogs you comment on...you know?! But really, an hour a day tops I think.

Hope you're feeling better soon.

Danni I really hope that you and the kids get better soon! It's almost over...and the nice weather is coming very soon!
As for commenting...I do have my regulars that I just love to come and visit and leave a comment. I have tried to spread myself but it just takes so much time...and then I feel so quilty that everything else is not getting done...kids, housework..you know the drill! So I try so hard to comment on those that leave me a comment and my special blogging friends! But I must say...I really do appreciate each and every comment I get, they are so uplifting!

Michelle VP said...

Take it easy sweetie and get better. I've had years like that too where it just seemed like somebody was always sick and we couldn't get rid of it in the house. Just think of all the immunity y'all are building up for next year!

I love leaving comments too and I go in waves. There are days I have time and days I don't, so I try to catch as many as I can when I can. Don't sweat the small stuff. :)

Chrisd said...

Feel better soon... I'm a Preschool aide and the first year is the worst. After that those germs don't usually sneak in as often.
I try to comment as I can and I admit I enjoy hearing from others.

Hi Danni,

I hope you feel better soon! As for comments, I try to comment as often as I can, but never expect comments in return. It's a nice surprise when I get comments, but I really just like to visit as many blogs as possible and get inspiration and leave other some love :)

Hugs, Christine

Sue from Oregon said...

Hope you can kick this bug!
I comment a lot as well, but try to keep it to 1 hour a day. I do tend to comment more on those that comment back, but I try to hit all my faves here and there! I had to find a balance or else there was no time for stamping!

Susana M said...

Hope ya feel better!!!
Agree need more hours in the day :o)

Danni, hope your household is back to healthy very soon! I'm happy whenever I receive a comment, but I'm totally guilty of not spending enough time blog hopping and leaving love. I think that any amount of time spent hopping needs to be a comfy amount for you and your family...it definitely shouldn't be stressful. Hugs! :)

Heather said...

Danni,
I hope you start feeling better soon! We are in the same sickness boat. Actually just joked with a friend of mine the other day (when Beckett was throwing up) that I just have to laugh because if I didn't I'd probably be so depressed I wouldn't get out of bed. It is just the kids ages...they are seriously little germ factories no matter how much you sanitize (believe me, my husband and I are both microbiologists and we are major germaphobes and we are still sick all the time). Hang in there!!!! As for blog comments, I try to make sure I hit my favs every day or two but others I only do once a week. 3 hours is way too much girl. Take some time for yourself. Everyone will still love you!

Jami {sgtStamper} said...

Hope you all are healthy and feeling better really soon!!!! I haven't had lots of time to comment recently, but I try to stop by every now and then when I can. I'm happy to receive any comments, but I know how busy people are, so I don't expect them. :)

Kimberly S said...

Sorry to hear that the cold bug caught up with you! Hopefully a few days of rest will get you past it.
I love visting and leaving comments, but some weeks I have little time (just like everyone else, I'm sure) so I do the best I can. :)

Tina said...

Hey sweety - sorry you are feeling so icky lately. Hopefully it all blows over real soon.

as or comments, I have to say that I leave comments on thos eblogs I truly love to visit. I do always leave comments when left for me 0 but I am no where near in the same league as you - so It doesn't take me that long.

i would love for you to visit when ever you can.

Feel better
xo

☼ Cheryl* said...

Aww Danni :( Being Sick is horrible! I hope your all ok soon x

I leave comments quite randomly... I am so terrible and I tell myself I will comment back to everyone that comments on my blog but I never get around to do it!

Cheryl said...

Phoenix said...

I try to always leave comments, especially when I really like something. But I do limit myself to a specific time period. If I didn't, I'd be blog surfing all day and get nothing done.

Anne said...

Big hugs to you Danni
xxxx

Commenting is great, but not if it stops you creating :), I stick to the lists of my blog and those who comment, I do love to see what others are working on so it's still partly creative time
