Should I or Shouldn't I?

Friday Follow

     Here we are at Friday Follow once again, and I find myself with a 'should I or shouldn't I?' participate attitude. If you remember I broke the rules a few weeks back, and openly declared I was doing so. I even lost a few followers, but that's ok,  I did invite them to stop following me. (it was only a couple anyway.)

     That being said, I like, no I love, Friday Follow. I think it's great, I have made new friends, found  interesting new blogs, and gained new followers who like to read me. Great idea guys! So I am back, and at it again.

     Now onto me, or us. I worked today, but had to stay home yesterday because both my kids are sick. They seem to be on the mend now, but it got pretty hairy with 2 kids having stomach flu. Now I'm feeling a little off, but at least I can take Pepto or something, that helps.

     Being a single mom, or any mom for that matter, makes for some hard decisions. I had to stay home with them yesterday, all the while feeling bad about flaking on the guy I'm working with. We are in the middle of a few projects and I know he is counting on me being there to help. Today Grandma (my mom) was able to sit with SPF, and I took HM to a daycare at a local hospital for moderately ill kids. (I love that place! They are staffed with nurses, and they take his temp., give meds., give advice, etc., such a GREAT idea! Drawback-super expensive, pretty much like working for free.) But then today I of course felt bad for leaving my sick kids. Can't win for loosing, it's crazy. But we are all home together now, and they are doing much better.  Now it is I who has a sick tummy, I guess it's more Pepto for me......

  7. I don't get it. Why would you lose followers for participating in Friday Follow? I guess I'm not blog savvy enough to understand that one. I think it's a great way to meet new bloggers so I'm glad you stuck with it.

    Thanks for stopping by the Cellulite Investigation. Please don't work too hard to bring cellulite back, er... I mean... to bring it "in" for the first time in human history. My blog would be out of business in no time ;)

  8. Don't worry Melissa, I seriously doubt it will catch on! If you click my link it will bring you to a FF post from a few weeks back and you will get it. Thanks everyone for stopping by.

  9. I love Friday Follow too and I alwasy consider rebelling against the 100% giveaway blogs. Especally when the blogs are goveaways from other sites. I just don't get it! Anyway glad I found you and I am following!

  10. Your kids are adorable! I am now returning the follow!

  11. I always look forward to Friday Follow! I'm glad you're back to join in the fun again. The more the merrier!!

  12. Hi, thanks for follow my blog. I'm already a follower from past FF.

    Enjoy the weekend.

  13. I found you through FF, and to an extent I must agree. I have come across a few blogs now that obviously only put their blog on their to gain some traffic etc, some don't even put the logo of FF on their blog. I have gone through some many stages in my blog. First it was ONLY to find the frugal stuff/coupons, but really I was a dime a dozen, and I didn't get a whole lot of time to write things I wanted to write. Now, I do the giveaways on weekends, follow the meme's but put my own personality on them, and have the frugal stuff on a separate page, It takes awhile to see where you fit!

  14. following you back -

    i have found some great blogs through ff - but agree about some who don't really participate.

    have a great weekend!
