A counting we will go...

I just updated my counter on my blog because my first one died. Last time I looked it was at "444." I just got a more sophisticated counter which will not count my hits to the website. So, now I'll see if I am doing the majority of hits on my own blog. {smiley face} Of course, this new counter has site statistics which will be a huge timewaster! I can see how many first-time visitors, returning visitors (Hi Lauri!), busiest time of traffic, etc... They also have this really cool guestmap that you could add to your blog ~maybe after my master's thesis is done!

Grad Update: I spoke to my grad coordinator on Monday. We had a phone appt. at 1:30 p.m. I waited by the phone, then it was 1:31, 1:32...1:34. I just decided to call him, and he apologized profusely for forgetting about our phone appointment that took me 2 emails to set up. I asked him how I should read my interviews now that they are transcribed. He said I should view each one as a movie and review it. Then I should write down a maximum of 3 themes that emerge from each interview. Now to get motivated to do it!

Work News: I find out on Thursday {May 1st} what my school schedule will be for next year. I heard a rumor that I will be at one school, and I heard a more recent rumor that I'll be at 2 schools. I saw one of my prinicpals yesterday, and she wasn't spilling anything.

Rambling: Do you believe it's May already? I started signing up my kids for summer camps this week! I signed S* up for a Farm Camp at a local farm... I hope he likes it!

Question for you: What do you do with interesting tidbits of information that you read in magazines. Case in fact, I just read something about cool restaurants Portland in the "O" magazine, and I hate to lose that information. I was thinking of saving the page, but I have pages floating around that I never reference. Then I was thinking of making an excel spreadsheet, but then I thought it was way to obessive... Ideas? Thoughts?

Thanks for stopping by!
