I now have a favorite spot to sit.
And it occurred to me that maybe this isn't a good thing.
I am going to wear this part of the couch out way before the other areas get worn out.
I will have to rotate myself around the room. I'm going to have to set up a schedule.
You think I jest.

So, back to the reason I started another post this evening.
I am slowly starting to delete 'friends' because sometimes you just don't want to know.
Know what I mean?
Like, for example, I don't need to see those photos. You know the ones. Seeing them just makes me sad. I guess the upside is I end up praying harder for the kids (yeesh, OK..."Young adults") who are getting helladrunk in clubs, bars, restaurants, backyards, basements ...
And, on the other end of the spectrum, I don't need to see photos of a great, fun-looking party and know that my kid wasn't invited. Those make me sad too.

Maybe I'm just overly sensitive.
Yeah, that's probably it.

But I'm guessing that there have been others who've been hurt or saddened by what they see or read on facebook. Yes? No? Anyone?

Maybe it's just me then. Could be ... I have been PMSing for 30 days in a row (menopause here I come) and I am a walking puddle of emotion lately.

I was tempted to cut myself off from Facebook entirely this evening, and then I remembered Scrabble.
I love Scrabble.
And messages like this one from Candace (who used to work with me at Billie's):
"So my daughter come home from work the other day and says 'hey mom guess what I found?' She was site foreman, and was closing up for the day, when she found a calculator that was left behind., for some reason she turned it over and almost dropped it, on the back of this little solar calculator was written, "Billie's Country" wow what a blast from the past......"

So I guess I'll keep Facebooking for awhile yet.
But can I make a suggestion to other facebookers? If you say one thing, don't provide evidence of the opposite on facebook.

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. I am SO comfortable in my own home. That is a good thing. I love it here.
2. Clint should be home in the morning. I've missed him. It'll be good to have him back.
3. Andrew will be back in Canada on Sunday night. Yay.

You don't have a purse? Seriously? Girl, we have got to get together and go purse shopping for you.
I love purses. LIke shoes, they always fit.
