I’m sorry, but I’m having a lot of trouble adjusting to the changes in the responses in the Catholic Mass. And I don’t think I’m the only one. Reading from a script just sucks all the joy out of the church service for me right now, but I’m going to keep trying.
I’ve heard that Google Friend Connect will no longer be available to those of us who do not use Blogger as out blogging platform. I use WordPress, switched a couple of years ago and will never switch back, so if you currently follow me through GFC please use the RSS feed button at the top right of my blog (two little curving lines and a dot next to the next of the Twitter, Facebook, and Email icons) to subscribe in your Google reader. You’ll still get my blog updates the same way. This is evidently a ploy by Google to drive traffic to the desolate wasteland known as Google+, but I find it a bit punitive.
On a related note, my Google account was disabled for about forty-eight hours last week. I couldn’t access my Google reader, commenting on blogs was much more difficult, and it basically annoyed the crap out of me. By the time they had decided I was disabled “in error” I had 800 posts in my Google Reader. I was overwhelmed, so I went through about the first two hundred and then clicked “mark all as read”. I’m sure I missed something important, but I’ll just have to live with it.
My sleep number bed (that I won in a Twitter party) arrived this week, and think I would live in that bed if I could. It is SO comfortable. I’ll surely be writing a full blog post about it soon, but let me just tell you if you’re considering buying yourself one for Christmas – DO IT!
Aaron’s home for Christmas, and I’m savoring every minute of it, especially since he’s getting married in a year and a half. It seems like such a short time ago he was sprinkling reindeer food in the yard on Christmas Eve and wearing footie pajamas. *sigh*
My final online order for Christmas arrived yesterday, and it was one the had been tagged “not guaranteed for Christmas delivery”, so I was pretty excited. And I finished my final handmade Christmas gifts late last night, so now it’s just the fun stuff to go: decorating the tree, wrapping presents, and enjoying time with friends and family.
I get to go wedding dress shopping tomorrow, and if that doesn’t mean I have the most awesome future daughter-in-law in the world I don’t know what does. And yes, I have Kleenex packed.
