Dear Facebook Friends

Letters of Intent

Dear Facebook Friends,

I love you - I really do. I would not have accepted your friend request if we did not know one another in some capacity. I genuinely enjoy reading about your day, seeing your pictures, and watching you all try to one up each other to be the funniest facebooker.

Now here are some things that I would like to let you know about your status updates before you begin:

Yes - I know you are tired - really we are all tired - 'nuff said.

I think it is cute that you think that I am going to read your status update and suddenly say - "hey that was an amazing status update and I am going to go ahead and change political parties". Guess what folks - not going to happen.

The whole reason that I like to check Facebook is because I like to know what is going on in your life - keep me informed - love that. I don't even mind the mundane, "Bob is going to the store" status updates. I do, however, mind blasting your spouse and telling everyone how terrible he is and how hard your relationship is for all of your 237 Facebook Friends to read. Please don't do that - it makes me uncomfortable. Worse yet is talk bad about your kids, or someone elses kids or really just any kid in general. Yuk and Why?

Facebook drama - I actually check Facebook hoping for drama - love it - HIGHLY entertaining. I do not however want to participate in anyway in any kind of drama. Find someone else to traumatize.

Here is a little Facebook hint for you: Guess what? They changed the way that you update your status now so you can type in your entire story. There is no more need for this series of updates.......

Sally is sad.....

Sally's friend - ??????
Another of Sally's friends - What's wrong honey?
Another of Sally's friends - Hope you are having a great day. I love you!!!!!
Finally Sally - oh it is nothing guys - just some personal stuff going on

Sigh - news flash - don't put it on Facebook!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much my sweet Facebook friends,

Now I gotta go update my status!

Friend Making Monday - Fall Line Up

OK - so I am not gonna lie - I love TV - yep - when the kids are playing during the daytime I keep it off - I am not a daytime TV watcher at all - don't know what is happening on the news, talk shows, or soaps but I tell you what - those kids go to bed and my Hubby and I want to watch some shows!!!!!! We have a pretty good mix of watching shows together - he will watch So You Think You Can Dance with me and I make it through Criminal Minds (with my head buried in a book normally) with him.

These however - are my favs and the ones that I am looking forward to seeing! Are there more - of course are you kidding me? We fill up that TIVO so that during the holidays etc we have stuff to watch. :)

Yes I am excited by The Biggest Loser and you can read why HERE the Cupcakes were born from this show and I am now a proud 148 pounds to prove it. Eight more to go - Come on Cupcakes!!!!!

LOVE this show!!!!!!!

This has become fun because now my girls love it (mostly the 7 year old) so we watch this one together!

Yes - my biggest laugh all week - this show cracks me up!

OK - now we get into the CW teeny bopper portion of our program and I am not ashamed to admit the following shows :)

Hubby and I watched the first one of these the other night - great - pretty people - not over the top - good vampire story - not too bloody or upsetting - I know you True Blood people out there are believers but that one is a little heavy for me - this reminds me of the Twilight series which is obviously what they were going for.

Yes - I am a Supernatural fan - I don't normally like scary but it started because Sam is Dean (which is interesting because his brother is Dean on the show - but anyway) from the Gilmore Girls. Now I am hooked

OK - so I have to admit that I started off watching this one because hubby does stuff like watches So You Think You Can Dance with me and he is the one that actually started off liking it but I gotta tell you - I am pretty much on board now! Good show - pretty people - interesting story - not too heavy - I guess that is the CW formula. :)

Why I like Mowing the Lawn

Yes - I like mowing the lawn. Yes that is an actual picture of me mowing the lawn taken with my phone that is always in my back pocket. Anyone driving by would think I most certainly had lost my mind!


Now that my children are the ripe old ages of 7, 5, and 3 - they can play in the backyard without eating rocks or squeezing themselves between fence posts and I am looking for every second of peace that I can find.

So here are my top three reasons for mowing the lawn:

The Noise

Yes - it is loud - it drowns out anything and everything and I LOVE it when the children come and try to tell me something and they look like this:


and I'm all "what's that - I can't hear you - just a second!!!!!!"

:) Love that!

The Exercise

Mowing is great exercise and I really like trying to get my lines straight. :)

Gives my husband more time with the kids

When Daddy does the lawn on the weekend it sort of takes him out of commission for a lot of hours. This way - I cut that down and he gets to play with us instead of the yard!

***** Note - I am still not a weedeater operator. That one scares hubby a little. I am not the most mechanically savvy person (although you should see me out there with the electric hedge trimmer!) and our weedeater is old and a little tricky.

I want the journey but I wish.....

I could have the rewind........

I have been on this amazing journey. I met this kind man. Together he and I made the three most amazing children. They grow each day. Each day they learn something new and I am so looking forward to seeing what they do tomorrow. I don't want to go back. I don't want the younger husband. I love the one I have now and I love him more every day for each step of the journey that we take together but when it all comes down to it - when we part - I know that I will wish that we could go back - that we could rewind.........

The same goes for my children. I am loving this phase of life - school and soccer and playing outside and family outings that don't involve crying jags or puking. I love my children more every day because of the trip that I am able to take with them but each day - they get bigger. Each day - they are farther away from being the babies that we made and closer to being the adults that we cannot wait to meet.

I am excited for the journey that I am on. I am on it for life and I don't want to go back. I don't want new babies or a new husband - I want to find out what happens with the ones that I cherish but I do have moments.......

Little moments like the night before my youngest - my baby boy - my miracle child - turns 3 that I wish......

I could just rewind - just for a minute - and taste it and feel it and breathe it one more time.

Betcha can't guess

Where this hair came from!
