Who am I thanking? Why all of you of course. I subscribe to a service called Sitemeter, they record how many hits or visits your ‘site’ or ‘blog’ gets and then every week I get a report with the numbers. It looks like this:

— Site Summary —
Visits

Total …………………… 4,067
Average per Day ……………… 6
Average Visit Length ………. 7:04
This Week ………………….. 45

The next section is Pageviews, which I am not really sure what that is, although I am sure some (most, o.k. everyone but me) knows what that means. But this is what has me feeling pretty good, I get an average of 6 visits a day, which is not a lot I know, but the average length of a visit is 7 minutes. That means people aren’t just popping in and popping out, people are actually (gulp) reading what I am writing.

So I want to thank all of you for stopping by, for reading, and for making me feel important, if only for 7 minutes and 4 seconds.

Stop drilling in my sinuses? How do I know it’s a little man? Because a big man wouldn’t fit. And the drilling? Well that’s what it feels like.

In other news, I still can’t find my brand of Tampons in the store. Yes I’m a bloody mess, just deal with it. Today I needed something. Last time I got Kotex, in the black box with the multicolored applicator’s. I give them 0 stars. I will not be using anymore, I do not recommend them. When I was cleaning things recently I scrounged around and managed to find two tampons of the brand I prefer. However I did have to get some more. Its either find another brand I like, or start using pads. *shudder* Today I was getting confused by all the boxes, so I just bought the Target brand. I would say I’ll keep you posted, but I’m not sure that’s what you want.

Em is also sick today, she thinks she has a fever. She didn’t feel warm to me, but then what do I know?

Thursday is opening day, can’t wait!!!

Last night as I was sitting in bed and looking at my laptop, I came to a decision. As much as I have committed to posting every day, my health is more important. Since I can never just come online and type my blog post and then leave, when I am feeling tired and head-achy and generally not well, I am not posting. Sorry WordPress. I am going to try to make sure the number is kept up. A feat that will be much more difficult once baseball starts this Thursday since I will then be blogging about the games on my other blog. But I am still going to make the effort. I anticipate these blog posts will become much shorter.

And that’s all, she says.

Last week I said that I was going to post every trip Em and I made to the city. The only problem I have is coming up with new and original titles. Also right now, I don’t know if the problem is with WordPress or my router, but I am losing posts. It is very annoying but because that is happening, this post may not be what I want it to be, as in, not as long and no pictures, since the pictures seem to be the problem. For instance, I have been trying to get my review post done for almost an hour and a half. It’s not the writing that is taking so long, it is getting the pictures in the post! There again, I don’t know if it’s my browser or WordPress.

It is making me so frustrated, I can’t even remember what I was going to say here.

All right, my reviews are posted. So Saturday, we got a late start, I had to go to Weight Watchers (up 0.6 pounds) and Em was not feeling great. Fred came with us, I never got a reason as to why, not that I care. First off we stopped at the soupman. Fred kept saying he wanted soup from the ‘Original’ soupman, so we went, Em had a groupon. I got black bean and he got Lobster bisque. On the wall was a T.V. with clips from Seinfeld, every so often a quote from an episode featuring the Soupman was shown and I would laugh, then we would have to explain why it was funny to Fred. After we finished the soup we walked to Bon Chon Chicken for lunch. Another groupon, before we get finished with Em’s groupons, we will probably have eaten in every part of Manhattan. Make sure to check out my review of Bon Chon here.

Next was Em’s appointment to get her nails done, Fred was getting a manicure also. We were early, so we stopped at the Yankee store since I had promised Em a sweatshirt for opening day. She didn’t find any she liked, but I found a navy blue jersey that was half price. While she was getting her gel manicure and Fred was getting a plain manicure, I went to wait for him at Starbucks across from the nail salon, thinking I would go online and check my e-mail, track my food for the day, guess what? It wasn’t working. I was frustrated. After Fred was done he came over to Starbucks and we went to the library, where I let him use the computer and I went online there with my iPod. Such fun, I don’t know what he did, but I checked in with four-square, and what else I don’t remember.

We took the subway to SoHo. It was cold Saturday and I don’t think Em was feeling very well. The original plan was for Em to go look at earrings, by that time she had changed her mind, one because Ashley wasn’t going to be there and two because of the cost. But we still wanted tea so we went to Harney and Sons. Check out my review here. I also bought tea, so as soon as I finish my chocolate rose tea, I can start drinking my Irish Breakfast. The other Irish Breakfast I currently have is going to feed the plants.

We had one last groupon we used, for dinner, at a pizza place called zPizza. According to Em it is in Greenwich Village but the website says it is in the West Village. I didn’t write a review, it is small and you can buy a slice of pizza already made, or you can pick your crust, your sauce, your cheese and your toppings for a custom made pizza. When we were done, once again we headed for the subway instead of just walking up to Grand Central. When we got there we had to go outside because Fred wanted to try on these shoes he saw at Models. They are ‘toe’ shoes, remember toe socks? Well these look creepier. Then to the train, then home and I was so tired, I took my shower and went to bed. Didn’t even turn on the computer.
