Facebook and Random Thoughts

Stumble Upon Toolbar

Have y'all caught on to Facebook yet?

I used to think it was only a forum for teenage girls to plan to beat each other to a pulp, but it is so much more than that!

My friend, Michele, pestered me to join for over a year, so I finally did, because if there is anything I insist upon, it is promptness.

To my delight, almost as soon as I joined, one of my best friends from high school found me! She was one of the bride's maids in my wedding and joined the Army shortly after. We lost contact even though I tried several times to find her over the last 22 years.

I was overjoyed to catch up on her life (she is a grandmother!) and we communicate frequently now through Facebook.

You should try it! You can even leave wacky messages on your blogging buddies' "wall".

In otherly random news, my husband and I managed to be seated 6 children apart during Sunday morning worship, but we caught each other's eyes when we witnessed my son tenderly tying his 4 year old sister's sash that had come undone on the back of her dress.

He didn't even tie it to the leg of the chair either.

In that instant, I purposed not to pull over at the local elementary school the next time I pass by and ask him to check the air pressure in the tires and then peel out and hope the school officials there could do something about teaching him long division without the crying and the whining and the pleading (and that's just me).

Not that I have ever thought of doing that before. I'm just sayin'.

That is hilarious---he didn't know what all was at stake when he chose to tie that bow!!!

And yes, after at least a year of being pestered...I joined too. It's fun!

Yes, I joined Facebook after being pressured by friends at church. I am going to write a post soon about it too, because I found a high school friend who now lives in Belgium, and we just had a reunion when her plane had a layover at a nearby airport! Fun times!

I'm on facebook, Connie. I'd love to add you to my friends list but I don't think I know your last name! If you're interested, look me up.

Facebook isn't just for teens anymore. I too joined after being pesterd by a friend. Then I had my husband join and it's so much fun. We have also been able to reunite with highschool/college friends. It's just such a fun and easy way to keep in touch!!

I have those moments of wondering if I should "STOP, DROP, and ROLL" out of there too, and then they up and do something sweet and I just keep on trucking home.

I love facebook! But then again, facebook was all the rage for college students when I was in college. Originally, you had to have a college email address in order to join. Which is why my login is still my (now defunct) college email address.

Too funny! Yup, I've had those ramblings occasionally as I've passed the elementary school!

Oh, I have basically become addicted to Facebook! It is so much fun!
