Wasting Time....

This is me waisting time
I have been sucked in. So a friend of mine invited me to view some pictures of her on facebook and I haven't seen her in a long time and I was really excited to see what she was up to now. So I had to join facebook to see them. And then you won't believe the assault that followed. I suddenly get like billions of emails saying so and so has added you as a friend and then you need to confirm that they are your friend and then on and on until you've seen and read everyones pictures and profiles and have a totally dead bum cuz you've been sitting there so long. *Sigh* Really I'm so happy because I found some long lost friends of mine from like elementary school and junior high! Amazing... But my children have suffered the consequences of neglect. Savannah just now got panties put back on after running around in the buff for most of the morning (she is dressed now) and Chase was soaked through with slobber and beside himself with teething discomfort. Then theres like these games people were inviting me to play and I don't know what I'm doing... someone ducked me???/what? Yeah like duck duck goose....and other friends of mine have their own mafia....I just feel like this is making my A.D.D.worse (not that I actually have it) but I think I'm gonna get it...there's all these places to click on stuff and then people are clicking on you and writing stuff on your wall....(panting) I'm out of breath. Oh jeez, I went on there for like way to long, talk about a run-on sentence. I think the whole experience was worse because Joe and I refuse to join the rest of the world with high speed internet. Thats right folks we are on dial-up...so be patient I can't play duck, duck, goose or help you take over any kingdoms until I attend to real life.
Please note the heaping laundry basket in the background of this one.... and there I sit.....I am such a brain washed zombie!

I know how you feel Rachel! I have also been kind of sucked into this Facebook thing. I have really enjoyed finding old friends and seeing what they are up too. At least our kids are all still alive! :)

RACHEL! How the heck are ya!???? I have to tell you I laughed out loud when I saw that YOU had commented on my blog about peaches because as I was writing "How could you not love a peach?" a random thought from a long-ago rodeo popped into my head "I'm as warm as a peach!" and I wondered where you were and what you were up to. Wow - ironic. (Do you even REMEMBER that rodeo?)

I'm SO excited to see you on blogger - amen to the whole facebook thing...I don't get it - in fact, I don't check it all that often because I do get sucked into it so deeply and then feel stupid and guilty that I just wasted all that time doing absolutely nothing. But I love blogging and keeping up with others' blogs (which some might argue is still a time-waster...oh well) - so I'm SO excited that you found me. I can't wait to go through all of your archives and see what you've been up to over the past while.

Ahem. Sorry about the long comment. :)

You are so funny, only because I'm the same way. I haven't jumped on the facebook bandwagon, because I already spend too much time on the computer...but, if you've found anyone that I know, from our Darby days, let me know!
