  3. Hi Melinda, Yes, take me off and then put me back on and then it should be fixed so you can follow me again.
    And be sure to let me know when this Festival of Sleep day is... so I can stay in my bed instead of working! LOL!

  5. Festival of sleep day sounds like a good one for me and bears too:) My daughter was born in January on a one of the coldest days ever and in a blizzard too so I definitely know it is the coldest month. Actually it is so cold here in Atlanta this past week I can't believe I am actually living in the south! Stay warm.
