Aaah! Facebook!

What was I thinking?!

I finally got around to signing up for Facebook; something I've put off for, oh, years now. Not that I didn't want to sign up, I just haven't had (made) the time to do it. I have so many incomplete projects, I just didn't want to add another one.

Well, I did it...I gave in...and now I can't stop!

I just signed up yesterday afternoon and I've spent (almost) all day on it, and when I'm not on in it's in my head...

I did manage to take the kids to the library, feed them 2 meals, bathe them, point out a gigantic preying mantis on the screen door, and administer nap time.

Hmm, I also baked some bread (oh no, that reminds me, I didn't put it in the oven yet!), unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher, swept the kitchen floor, and watered all the plants in the backyard. So, now that I put it that way, I guess I'm not so horrible after all.

I still feel like I'm being sucked into the computer, though. Even worse, now that I've managed to peel myself away from Facebook I'm on Blogger!...and I'm even blogging about Facebook!

What a crazy time we live in. So many things to suck the time out of our lives.
Luckily, my personal tendencies are to be horribly obsessive when I have a new "toy", but after I overload and purge my system I tend to lose interest.

At least I'm still within ear range of my lil'ns, and when they scream I come running (which I've had to do twice now, since sitting down to write this post).

We'll just call this a "phase", and in the meantime I'll have to figure out how to divide myself between Facebook, Blogger, and obsessively cleaning the many choices, what's a girl to do?

Sounds like you got a lot accomplished today. I took boys to the orthodontist and then watched Inkheart and took a nap. Not as productive as you! I know what you mean about Facebook. It can get a little consuming sometimes.

Blogging about Facebook! Life doesn't get any better than this, does it?
