Sickie heads and stuff

Kennedy and Keeghan both have head colds this morning. They are snotty and whiney and Keeghan's a little feverish so we stayed home from church and are laying low. Later I have to take Kass and Kam out to get their arms looked at from their TB test the other day. Looks good to me. Kam has a slight bruise on his but he moved his arm when they stuck the needle in. It's 39 degrees here today! WOOOHOOO Not.

Right now, Frank is watching his most favorite episode of Spongebob. Ever. He's reciting the show and Kennedy is looking at hime like he's insane. Yes, he is a grown man. I'm pretty sure. On that note, I love iCarly. Yeah yeah yeah. I'm a grown up too. I think.

I realize I haven't posted about books in awhile... that would be because I'm still reading the book I was reading a few weeks ago! LOL I'm reading Good Grief by Lolly Winston. I don't know why it's taking me so long... I guess because I didn't read while the kids were out of school. I have lots of books on my "to read" list.

Last night and this morning I added LOTS of new blogs to my blog roll. Seriously. Go check it out. If you're not on there, and you'd like to be, too bad! Just kidding! I probably just overlooked you, so let me know. If you're in the wrong category, let me know that too. If you have an adoption blog, it's on Kellsey's Blogroll.

Speaking of my blog... do you all still see my favicon? (That would be my little Special K logo up in the nav bar by my blog name.) I think it's disappeared... but maybe it's just me... or maybe it's internet explorer... can you firefox and safari people see it? I think I want to download Firefox... any pros/cons to it? Frank's been trying to get me to do it FOREVER and well... I'm stubborn.

And now, to end this random post, I leave you with a random picture. Don't you love his color coordinated paci?


Have a blessed Sunday!

I use Firefox and I can see your little special K icon. :)

Hope everyone feels better soon!!!

Ann said...

Ok I have both Firefox and Safari. I just checked and I see the "k" in Firefox but not in Safari. I prefer Firefox but its also what we have on campus so I use it a lot.

It's cold here this morning and there is thick frost and fog. I just want to climb back in bed and stay warm. Hope everyone feels better soon.

Keeghan is so cute!

Erika said...

I have Firefox and I can see your special K icon. I LOVE firefox and encourage you to try it!

Sorry the little ones aren't feeling well. That's so tough when they are sick. I hope they start feeling better soon.

I use Firefox and I do see your icon. I have used Firefox for years. I rarely use IE. There are some things that won't work with Firefox though. Very few things and it's never bad enough for me to go back to IE. If I really need to see something and it doesn't work with Firefox then I'll use IE for that one thing, but then I'm always right back to Firefox.

rebecca said...

I can see it. IE won't let users see them anymore....

Mom of Army Brats. said...

I have Firefox, and can see it

and its OK about icarly. I like Drake and Josh

Mandy Greene said...

You must use firefox, it is way better than any of the others and I can see the logo but the other day I couldn't. It was some weird looking thing.

Amy© said...

I heart Firefox! And yes, I can see your cute li'l logo! :)

Hope the kiddos get well soon!

Karen said...

39 degrees would be WARM here!

I can see your Special K in firefox. I sometimes have it showing in my bookmarks, too! but it's an intermittent thing. Haven't been able to figure it out yet.

I LOVE firefox! I won't go back to explorer. I love the plug-ins you can get for firefox, too. My favorite is AdBlocker (you get plain white space, instead of annoying ads).

waldenhouse said...

I feel your pain on the sickies. My boys are on round 37 of cold/sinus/cough and congestion junk. Summer anyone?

And can I just say that blogroll of yours is something to behold. As if I didn't spend enough time on the computer already!

Jen said...

I have Firefox and I love it! I used to get annoyed with the internet all the time and then I switched Firefox and I just surf away with no issues! And I can see your Special K too.

momof4as said...

I use and love Firefox and I can see your "Special K."

Yes, love the color coordinated paci! Hope everyone gets to feeling better. Arline has a friend over (whose name also starts with A, lol) for a sleepover so she is soooo happy... I'm just waiting for the fighting to start, right?

Anonymous said...

Hi Renee, I thought you had forgotten about me with that book but you just answered that! lol Robbin in Chicago

Courtney said...

First of all, I will join you and Frank and be an adult and admit...I LOVE Suite Life on Deck!!!! But who doesn't?
I have Firefox and can see it!
Keeghan is as cute as EVER...color coordinated and all!

Liz said...

I see the K. I love Firefox. I switched as it seems to be much more stable than IE, especially for some programs and games that have a lot of animation and flash player use.

Lynette said...

I use IE and I can see it!

blueviolet said...

I use Firefox and I love it. I stopped using IE a few months ago and I haven't missed it once. And I do see your special K! Cute!

Cammie Heflin said...

Ok I admit it, I love ICarly too!

Bethany said...

Yeah, I'm in Firefox and the icon is there. I have/had one on my PP site and I found it seemed like sometimes it was there, sometimes not. It is the haunted internet. LOL

Leah said...

When I was on my PC, I switched to firefox about 2 1/2 years ago. You'll LOVE IT! It does NOT have the issues that IE has. In fact, I don't think I ever had one problem with it! Yes, your favicon is visible to me on Safari.

Ruby said...

I still see your little special k thing. I also use firefox, you won't regret it once you download it. I am very happy with it.

Lu (Lucille) said...

I use firefox and wouldn't want anything else! Microsoft even recommended it recently when they discovered that people can take control of your pc due to a security issue with IE!

And yes, the K is still there BUT!!! you don't have a Poppy on your sidebar! It's okay, I did nearly faint but I'm okay now.

TheAlbrechtSquad said...

I use firefox and I love it!!!! I can see your special K. I had a lot of problems with viruses on IE, there are so many little cool things that come with firefox.

I love iCarly too. We just watched the one of them in Japan and I totally cracked up.

♥Lisa♥ said...

I use Firefox and can see you K. DH keeps using IE and i keep telling him not to. I use to use IE and finally got fed up with it!!

I like icarly too. I ALMOST made it a no-go show because kaitlen was throwing some MAJOR Sam attitude. I got her to stop that so all is good, lol.

omgosh, im soooo sick of SB but i know he'll be in our house for many many yrs. Which one is his favorite episode???
i hope everyone is feeling good quickly.

Shari said...

Keeghan is so darn cute! Not only that how many pacis does he use at one time?

jeri said...

Go to Firefox. It's wonderful. You will love it.

Patty said...

I can see the K in internet explorer. :)

Hope the kids feel better soon. DJ was sickly yesterday with his cheek but fine today.

Karen said...

I would love to be linked to your blog roll. Thanks to you & Rebecca I just set up my blog yesterday.

Lora Leigh said...

I downloaded firefox last summer and 2 weeks later my computer crashed. Not necessarily because of the firefox but I wouldn't download it again.

marlene said...

I think that between having the kids home AND having Frank home AND having to write an AUTOBIOGRAPHY would be perfect reasons to not be finding time for reading your book!!! LOL

narretto said...

You can link me to your blog roll if you would like. Is that part of K's paci collection in his hand I see? Cutie pie. And as far as iCarly...you are definately not the only adult watching lol

Ragdoll Billie said...

Thanks Renee for adding me to your blog roll. There just is not enough of me to get around and socialize as I would desire. A good day here, and then two bad days there. Still recouping from last week's treatment, and now back surgery scheduled for Thursday.

I opened four browsers and Firefox (the one I use all the time) was the only one that showed your favicon. I have made me a ragdoll to depict my myasthenia, and I think I will do the same with her. You have inspired me. That's how it should be, all of us learning from, and being inspired by each other.

Lynn said...

I don't see it but then it's probably just me since others can. I've used Firefox for years now. I love it because I can pull up tons of pages at a time when I sign guestbooks and can easily go from one to the next. There's a lot more I like about it...so go ahead and download it! I use Thunderbird as my email program, too.
So which episode is Frank's favorite? Inquiring minds want to know! Do I have to wait for your next Q&A post to get the answer?

Always here praying!
Luke 4:18-19 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Kim said...

Such a cutie! Your kids have beautiful eyes! Thanks for posting about books. I'm always looking for a good book to read!

AF Wife and Mommy said...

I am using Google Chrome and I see your Special K Icon. I love the Binkie, Ashlynn has the same one. Now as for books have you Read John 3:16 (I am not sure of the aurthor of the top of my head and I lent the book out) I think you would love it. I also just read Home Another way which was and awesome book as well.

JennyH said...

Well, like most everyone above me-- I use firefox too. My hubby talked me into it. It took him awhile! But now I like it much better than IE. I say- try it.

Hope everyone is getting better.

MyCrazyLife said...

Love the picture of Keegan. :)

Mary said...

My husband converted me to Firefox awhile ago and I love it!

Angela M. said...

I still see the Special K symbol. I do use Firefox though. Jamie and I both use it and really like it. It just is more convenient for me in many ways. :)
