To Facebook or Not To Facebook...

I am seriously considering getting back on Facebook.

Yes, I said it.

I have been off for ten months.  Have I missed anything in that time?  Well, I have missed keeping up with some friends that don't live near me, or that I don't see regularly.  That is definitely a loss.

I have also missed out on political one-liners that get on my nerves, seeing parties or outings that I didn't know about, and being irritated with people who put on a fake face for the world to see.  That is definitely a gain.

I have gained the time I used to spend looking at Facebook on my phone.  If something really exciting happens Nevin or Tony (who are on Facebook) will tell me, anyway.

I thought I would do better at sending emails (maybe even real cards) to those friends I kept in touch with on  FB, but it hasn't happened so far.

What to do, what to do.....

Status Report for October

Sitting:  at the coffee table with my laptop.
Thinking:  the boys better get up if they want breakfast before Bible study.
Sensing:  that I will have to get off the computer and go pull them out of bed.
Wondering:  if I can just mentally will them to get out of bed.
Debating:  whether to make Chicken Enchilada Casserole of Alice Springs Chicken for dinner tonight.  Both recipes come from Pinterest (note, below on your right, you can follow me there).  
Wishing:  someone would magically show up with dinner tonight.
Asking myself:  why I moved to the country where no one delivers.

Oh, yeah, this is why we moved.

Deciding:  to go with Alice Springs tonight, and make the casserole tonight for dinner tomorrow.  Glad that is settled.
Telling anyone who wants to know:  that I woke up this morning and did my individual Bible study and did (most of) my wii fit exercise, and I am ready to face the day.
Glad:  that my dvd of Richard Simmons Sweatin' to Disco (something like that) is supposed to arrive from Amazon today..
Perplexed: at why everyone doesn't like Richard Simmons.
Hoping: that the weather will be good this weekend for Rockport Baptist Church's Family Camp!
Counting on:  a good time of fellowship, no matter what the weather may bring.
Thanking God: for my husband and sons, our home, the beautiful weather outside my window today, plenty of food and overall good health, the opportunity to share in my sons' education today.
Looking forward:  to Family Camp!
Tasting:  my freshly brewed coffee, and already considering my breakfast options!
