Working Mom Wednesday


Not such a clever title for this post. But it's 5 am here and I am up because my allergies are so bad I can't sleep, so I really am not feeling "it" right now. Nonetheless, that is what I love about Working Mom Wednesday's... I don't have to think so much.

Here are today's questions:

What do you consider necessary to get through the day? (items, routines, coffee, etc.)
Right now I need a cocktail of allergy medicines just to function thru the day. I broke down yesterday and went to one of those Take Care clinics in a Walgreen's, and let me tell you, those things are great. I was in and out in a half an hour! I think I actually waited longer for my prescriptions to be filled .
But back to the question- other than that I can't really say I NEED anything to get thru the day. I'm not a huge coffee person, though I do tend to stop at Starbucks for a Grande Iced Toffee Nut latte if I work a morning shift. Not out of need, but because they are super tasty! I guess if I had to pick one thing it would be lip gloss, more specifically, Burts Bees pomegranate. And not to be super corny or cheesy but- a kiss from my husband and snuggles from Jack.


What do you do on your commute to work - listen to the radio, enjoy peace and quiet, etc.
At my old job my commute was an hour plus. So my morning commute consisted of Starbucks and listening to my favorite radio morning talk show. The ride home was listening to the radio/iPod and catching up on missed calls. Now I thankfully only have a 10 minute ride to work, so I usually just listen to the radio!

So there are my answers... Now I have 2 questions of my own! ( well 3 technically)
 Does anyone know how to merge to Blogger Blog's. I want to merge this blog with my Mama Insomnia Blog, because I want to go by that name from now on. Is there a way to merge this one into that without losing all my followers, etc.?
-and-
Provided I can merge the 2, I was looking into giving Mama Insomnia a little face lift. Does anyone have any tips/tricks for sprucing up your blog. I know the basics, like getting new layouts and backgrounds from sites like Shabby Blogs, but other than that I am lost. Any tips or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
And last but not least, I decided to join a blog community in hopes of meeting new blogger's and gaining more readers. I'm just getting started so if you like what you see here please click on the button below (or to the left) and vote for me! Thanks!!

Found you through Working Mom Wednesday. I love your blog and I'm following you now. I have no idea on your questions though. I tried doing my own "sprucing" and I wasn't happy so I paid for my blog revamping. Your blog is cute but I agree that change is good. Good luck with the merge!!

I found your blog through a google alert I have set up for working mom. The first thing I thought was that I LOVE the name. I can't believe you want to change it. They only way I know to merge is to tell your readers that now you will be directing them to another place and to send them over there.

If you are looking for communities you should really check out SITS. Here is a link to their blog frog: http://www.theblogfrog.com/757946. Their community is over 7,000 women strong and they work by supporting each other with comments. Their blog is at www.sitsgirls.com.

Blogger has some new templates and options to use, if you didn't want to just download a new background or whatever. I have been debating about changing my blog name as well and purchasing my own space... but I've too busy to really do the research I need to. Good luck with merging your blogs, I wish I could help!

no idea on the merge thing... i think you'll just have to tell people you'll be blogging over there now. don't even think there is a way to get all your blog posts from here to there either. sorry can't be of help!

as for sprucing it up. what are you looking to do?? you look like you have a pretty good layout now.

and I voted for you on picket fence!! i'm over there too, so feel free to vote! ;)

and yes, check out SITS. not only do you get to meet other great bloggers, but eventually, you'll have your featured SITS day too!!!

You poor thing! Will pray for those allergies. Please let me know where you find the best tips for sprucing up the blog. I am such a novice and trying to learn the ropes myself. Good luck with the merge!
