Do Not Disturb!

I don't know about the rest of you but I am one tired puppy already and it is only Wednesday!! Monday just flew by because not only was I doing the Mad Click Monday on this blog but I also started giveaways on my Onorach and Sona Creidhe Reviews blogs. I tell you, my stats went from about 10 visits a day per blog to around 200 per day! It's unreal and I've already got almost 200 people total entered to win one of the eight prizes I'm offering. Wow!

By the way, if you haven't entered yet then I suggest you get your hiney over and do it now! No excuses! David, make sure you let Terri know so she can join too. ;) You have until Friday morning and then I will personally come to your blog and chastise you. The Blog Cafe and EMealsForYou have even donated some prizes to give my readers. Isn't that cool?!

Some good news. I entered Gotta Spa's "Mom: Get Glamorous" contest and guess what? I WON!! Can you believe it? I actually won something! It was so wonderful to be chosen and I am definately looking forward to all the great pampering products I will be getting. Hubby has already been warned that if he touches a single one of my bath products he will die a horrible death!! Thankfully most of the stuff is scented with girlie scents so he probably won't touch them. That means they will be MINE ALL MINE MINE MINE MINE!!! Did I mention they are mine? ;) Now I just have to worry about the girlchild stealing something. Hmmmm, I may have to trade her for a camel yet.

Last night I had the joy of talking to my blogsister Janice from Twist & Skewer and talk about fun! I think we chatted for about 4 hours and have so much in common. It was great getting to talk to her and talking about anatomy (she's going to college for nursing) with someone was fun. My knowledge was learned in life because of cancer and my health but so has some of her's. She's an amazing woman and I'm very glad to be able to get to know her better.

Last but definately not least, my other blogsister Saint Amy Jane has given me a very cool award. Amy is amazing and I am honored to know she thinks so much of me. I think getting her Hellatight award is KICK ASS!! If you haven't visited her yet then please do so soon. Wonderful lady.

Well that's it for right now. Have a great day!

I don;t have all the tools to check right here, but my first guess for the slow page laoding:
myblogLog and the bloggrolling codes in the scroll boxes. They all hork a page laod down (yeah, i know.. i have them on mine too...)

Best bet is to put them further down in the page template. At least then the content and stuff will load before it hangs on that.

What? HP7 isn't a good enough excuse? I should think that it is. It isn't like I am a slow reader or anything. In fact I finished it at 3:30 am today and went to work with only two hours sleep and no shower. Luckily it IS a prison the kids still smelled worse than me! (Isn't that the definition of an addiction...when it makes you go to work with no sleep and poor hygiene!? Do you think that HPAnon meetings are near BlogAnon meetings?)

Oh, and congrats on the awards and the increased traffic!

Hi Jo, I haven't been by in awhile and I thought I needed to stop by and say hi to my favorite lib!

Congratulations on you awards and all your new visitors. I imagine it must be thrilling to watch you stats go up so drastically.

Good luck on your tests! I hope it turns out better than you are expecting!

Yeah... my page has the same issues because of the bloglog and blogroll stuff. Just part of the blogging world when you have traffic I suppose. Congrats on the award how fun!! :) I used to give away awards to my favorite graphics sites, maybe I should start doing it again for my favorite blogs LOL
I hope your ultrasound is all they need. Colonoscopies DO suck. My ex had to have one. I think they left something up there when they did his though... lol Take care of you *hugs*
