I love comments on my blog just as much as the next guy. I really do. So if you're lurking out there come out and say hi! But I admit, I probably don't comment on other's blogs as often and I should or would like to. I read many of the blogs I follow through my Google reader and don't always click on over to comment. Or most of the time I'm just so far behind I feel like the topic I'd be commenting on is old and done with. So I apologize to all those I'm following for not always being involved!

But what I don't like is all these anonymous comments I've been getting lately. It has really picked up in the past few weeks. I used to get them here and there but now it's just about daily. It drives me nuts. Many of them contain spam links but some are just random comments that make no sense and have nothing to do with the post. And they are on really old posts too. One in particular from the summer of 2008 is quite popular.

I really don't want to put the word verification or comment moderation on. For now I haven't because you can moderate on only posts that are over 14 day old, which is what I'm doing since all have them have been that old. Hopefully it won't get worse and I can stick with that.

What about everyone else? Do you have this same problem? Why the hell am I so popular all of a sudden.......and not in a good way?

Olympic Conversations

{Vol. 2 of my series of weird conversations with my kids}

The four of us were watching the Olympics the other night and the Men's Luge was on. Tiger was not familiar with the sport so she started asking some questions.

Tiger: So what's the difference between this and the bobsled?

Me: The bobsled is "enclosed" and there are usually 2 or 4 men in it.

Tiger: Well then why do these guys (in the luge) wear those suits?

Me: It's a special suit that keeps them warm so they don't have to wear bulky clothes that slow them down.

Tiger: So then won't the bobsledders get cold if they are wearing regular clothes?

Me: Huh?

Tiger: Well, you said that they are "in clothes".

She also could not remember Apolo Anton Ono's name either and kept calling him everything under the sun. I came home from work on Sunday and she asked me when "Poncho" was going to skate again!

To my Valentine

Since it's Valentine's Day I thought I'd take this opportunity to sing the praises of my husband and best friend. I made this list a while ago and just never got around to finding the right time to post it.

Why I Love My Husband

  • He accepts me as I am, faults, bad habits and all
  • He loves me even when I don't love myself
  • He drives me to work in bad weather because he knows I hate driving in the snow
  • He's a hard worker. He used to have 2 jobs, but now works all the overtime he can get to support our family and never complains about it.
  • He makes me laugh
  • He'll run to the grocery store or McDonald's without notice at weird hours if I'm craving a snack!
  • He can cook better than I can and does it on a regular basis for our family
  • He does dishes and laundry!
  • He's not the jealous type
  • He's faithful and loyal
  • He's much more patient than I am
  • He'll go grocery shopping AND take both girls with him
  • He's my biggest supporter

Happy Valentine's day babe! I love you more than I ever thought I could and am so thankful to have you in my life.

It's so cold in Wisconsin......

That even the bulldozers need blankets!
LOL! Not my best joke but hubby thought it was hilarious and wanted me to post it!

While doing the project 365 there are days when I feel like I'm lucky I even have a photo to post. And other days when it's hard to pick one. Yesterday I had a few to choose from and thought I'd share a couple that didn't make the "final cut".

I'm curious as to how long this building has been abandoned since there are trees growing inside the walls! Seriously, look at the height of that one!
Anyway, just some interesting sights we came across yesterday.
You can see all the daily photos on my other blog.....
