And so I slack....

I have become a blog slacker. What can I say? It's summer, and since Axel is stuck in this God awful halo, and it has been hotter than Hades for like a month, our summer has been very boring! I don't even think I've taken pictures since the 4th of July.

The other part about blog slacking is my blog reading. If you don't use Google Reader, you will spend a lot of extra time clicking around to all your favorite blogs. With GR, all your blogs are in one place! You can see who has updated and read their posts right there. It even puts the number of unread posts behind each blog name.  It's great. It's convenient. It's a time saver. But I haven't even been doing that. I am behind on my blog reading, so those little numbers behind each blog name have been growing at a rapid pace.

There is a special place on Google Reader where you can "mark all read" and start over. It will wipe out all those numbers behind the names and you won't be behind theory. But I can't do it. I can't click that button. I feel like if I do I'm going to miss out on something; some big announcement, a child coming home or amazing pictures of someone's vacation.

So this morning I went to google reader and I did it.

I checked the box.

How's that for an exciting summer?

Blame it on the heat. We are totally slackin' here too. I feel bad but I'm wishing my summer away! Pining for the cool crisp autumn days that are so very far out of reach.

You are not alone.

I'll call you.

I rely on my reader too, but also have such a hard time clicking that mark all read button too. It is nice not to feel behind though, isn't it? (or at least not behind in blog reading!)
