Getting here is half the fun

I’ve been MIA this week, thanks to being knocked on my ass by some sort of sickness on Monday and Tuesday. Cue high fevers and lots of sleep.

Of course, when I started feeling better, things kicked into high gear because getting sick 2 weeks before Christmas? After only 2 weeks back at work? Yeah, crazy pants. I haven’t even started my shopping (hello Sunday, I hear you calling), I desperately need to finish a few major things at work before the holidays, and oh yeah, I have family coming in town exactly 10 days from today. It’s the most wonderful time of the year and all.

But occasionally, it’s nice to take a little break and remember that I have a blog, and that I used to like to post here (oh, and hey, I used to get traffic here too!  Hi to the 5 of you that still read–love you tons!!), so I thought I’d have some fun with Google. Ah, yes, the ever popular “searches that brought people to this site” post! Enjoy!

The top searches lately are:  “husband is a douchebag”, “boyfriend is a douchebag”, “is my husband a douchebag?”, and my favorite “is it ok to call my husband a douchebag?” (and about 80 other iterations of the question/statement including douchebag). These all land on one of my favorite pregnancy posts: Signs your partner might be a douchebag (Childbirth class edition) . Of course, if you’re asking the Internet, I’m sure you already know the answer…

“Excuses for not voting” is another top contender, which references this post: Top 5 Excuses for Not Voting on November 4th. I guess people are always looking for a reason to not get involved, right?

“Why the Internet is bad for pregnant women” is one of my all-time favorites. I mean, I think the Internet should practically be banned while you’re pregnant, at least if you’re even a little bit into researching what could be happening, as it inevitably turns into “OMG your baby is going to DIE if you even think about having a single slice of deli meat.” Anyway, I think that search leads folks to 6 surprising things about pregnancy, all of which still surprise me even having gone through the whole shebang.

I’m willing to bet the people who are searching for “boobies” don’t get what they’re looking for here: i love boobies.

I’d like to hope that the people who search “crazy neighbors” don’t have the stories I do. For their own sakes! Crazy Neighbors

And, of course, I’m getting lots of c-section searches. Lots and lots and lots all asking about tips for c-section. I’m nothing if not helpful: Tips for c-section recovery.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest you start your Christmas shopping early next year. Like August early. You freak out every year, and it’s not like you don’t know when to expect it.
