Google Reader

Damn they are closing down today and I do not have (yet?) an alternative. I really liked reading blogs through that reader.
In the meantime, not knowing what to do, but knowing I must have a list of my blogs somewhere, I transferred them all to my favourites list. A process that took sometime, and unfortunately in the process I think I have lost some blogs :-(. MN - that would be your blog, I have Skating on the Edge, but not the other one, so please can you send me? [if you don't want it to appear then to my e-mail: greentamshaATyahooDOTcoDOTuk ]. I hope I haven't lost any more blogs.
Currently I am in the process of moving them to my blog, but I don't like that as a solution, so I still have to find something. It only gives the last post and sometimes I am behind on my reading and want to catch up reading more than just the last post. Another problem is with blogs that go private - I can't and shouldn't put such blogs on my reader, but how do I keep updated?

my bad mummy moment - circumstances not so much important, mainly she was tired and I was trying to get her to go to sleep, and now she wanted to eat. Anyway I got very cross (I was actually already hot from something that had nothing to do with daughter) and opened and closed cupboards with a bang. To which my little sweet daughter came up to me for a hug. URG. Yes, we had a long and tight hug, but this is not how I want it to be.
Lately, it's been difficult. Two was wonderful, absolutely great! Yes, there was the week in which she woke up at 4 am and screamed [thank you sister for reminding me....] and the odd tantrum, but mostly it has been a time of growing, of becoming a child, of developing language skills and very basic social ones, of becoming more able to do things whether to jump from a high point without hands or doing a somersault or cutting with scissors [=her hair! did I tell you about how she cut off a big chunk of her hair? lol]. But three? [yes, bad mummy moment number two. My daughter had a birthday and I didn't blog about it :-( I do hope to do something to celebrate her birthday, but really I hadn't had the time (plus didn't yet have a party)]. Okay three is bad. She is crying (that is, real cry, not her pretend playing she is her baby cousin and therefore crying, because babies cry, which can go on for quite some time, I just learned to tune off..) a lot, wining and just plain being difficult. And I am very much back to shouting at her.
So I want to start this not shouting challenge for a year again, this time maybe documenting the process on a blog, I think I'd rather do so on a new blog, not sure if private or what. Though it will have to wait as I am in the - tests/papers to hand in time zone plus a last minute project of moving all the blogs I read to my favourites as google reader will seize to exist at the end of the month and I still don't have an alternative reader :-(.
