Two Things

Number one, after 36 years I finally need glasses. I blame it on all this blogging. In the last year I went from working out in the world to spending my days in an office, on the phone, in front of the computer.

In the last month I have been coming home with headaches and having to squint to read all of your insightful words. I have been diagnosed with a stigmatism in each eye. I guess my cornea are no longer in focus. New glasses next week. I am not looking forward to the hassle of glasses but I can't wait to be able to see again without squinting.

The moment I realized that I could see better with the lenses my eyesight got much worse. I went from not being sure to hyper aware of my poor vision. The clock keeps ticking.

Number two should be a post of its own, however I am going to do it here and now. Hello my name is Peter and I am a Statcounteraholic. I have been addicted to Statcounter since the day it came into my life. I remember it like yesterday. I got the code, placed it on The Tutuboutique and I haven't been the same since.

The ability to see who and more importantly how people browsed through the store fascinated me. The fact that it was real time and every once in awhile I could watch a customer place an item in their cart and proceed through check out was a rush.

There are two things that annoy the hell out of me : One, is the locked referrer, makes me crazy, I need to know where you came from. Two, AOL reloads the counter every time the user opens another page. AOL distorts my unique visitor numbers and it makes me cross.

Now with the blog it is even more fun, albeit a little disappointing. Tell you friends to stop by so I can watch my Statcounter count.

I've decided *not* looking at the stat counter is better for ye old mental health. Trying to act on that theory is an entirely other thing.

Happy to raise your count! Sorry about the eyes. My hubby is dealing with that and I know I'm not far behind. *sigh* Looking forward to reading about the weekend semi-alone with the kiddos.

I just found you from the Carnival of Family Life (but you must know that from your statcounter right?). I liked your Spit Up, and told my readers to look for it.

Also, I'm almost 36, and I feel the eyes starting to go. I think it's inevitable.

Statcounter is so immediate... for that I like it. I've really enjoyed Google Analytics as well. You should give it a shot, but I think it only displays new results every 24hrs... and I'm sure by now that by now you require much higher doses than just once a day! My stats are terrible, so I'm not sure why I look at them but still... I do.
