Bloglines issues?

I track all of the blogs that I read through Bloglines. Admittedly, I haven't been reading blogs in quite a while-- not since I took 4 1/2 months off of work. I'm back at work, and into my regular routine again, so I was looking forward to catching up with everyone. But, much to my dismay, all of my subscriptions seem to have disappeared from Bloglines. I checked my blog to see what was listed there, and sure enough "Blogs I Read" is empty. It was all there yesterday!! I'm hoping that this is just a temporary Bloglines glitch. Otherwise I will have to attempt to recreate the lengthy lists of blogs that I follow.

So, to all of my fellow bloggers-- I miss reading your sites and will try to start commenting again regularly, just as soon as I find all of you again.

In the meantime, I returned to work on Monday. As of today, I am only partially set up to do my job. The office has moved to a new location. I knew this before I left and was not the least bit happy about the move. In fact, I was pretty close to leaving my job over it. I chose to take an extended leave of absence instead. In hindsight, I'm glad I did. As it turns out, the commute really isn't any worse (I hate admitting that!) and the office itself is better than what I left.

What I am not happy about is getting up in the mornings. I had gotten used to sleeping in until 9 or so in the morning, and 5:30 a.m. comes awfully early. I also wasn't thrilled about wearing "grown-up" clothes again. My work shoes had dust on them. I keep telling myself that it's good to have a routine, but I'm not yet convinced.

Well the bright side is you have a better office...I can lament the getting up at 5:30 part...although I don't work through the week, I still get up at 6 a.m. so that I can get the kids off to school on time with lunch boxes in hand :)
Repetition will get your body accustomed I'm sure....or I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Wow, you got someone who works at bloglines to respond to your message. lol! I've recently been switching back and forth with bloglines and google reader. I didn't use google before because I didn't have an account and then blogger made the merge. But I haven't had any problems with either one.

Bummer about Bloglines, Juanita. Mine is working fine at the moment. Hope your list turns up! I would HATE to have to recreate mine.

Hope you get adjusted quickly to your work schedule. I'm currently looking for a job and I know it will not be pretty when I have to start getting up with the chickens! (So to speak...)
