Addiction. Admitting that you have a problem is the first step, right?

So.  It’s official.  I am addicted, like millions of my “friends”, to Facebook.

I check it dozens of times during the day.

I have reconnected with half of my high school graduating class, old friends from when I was a little girl, people I have worked with over the years, old boyfriends…heck…my parents have a facebook page.  Half of my family is on there.  Even the hubby has a page.  He found his cousin that he hasn’t had been in touch with since the 80’s.  It is amazing.

Yesterday, I found out that a girlfriend of mine from high school is married to the former partner (cop) of one of my clients from the vet hospital.  They are close friends.

Six degrees of separation, my shiny white butt…..

But I am addicted.  I should be doing anything else besides facebook.  But I can’t.  It is just too cool.

The kids had a pretty good night.  Daniel was up once in the night, but Melissa slept right through.  They woke up when they heard the hubby get up.  He is off work today but is having extensive dental work done and the dentist is more than an hour away, so he left the house before 7 am.

And it looks like our “Date Night” is going to be somewhat truncated.  We were checking out movies and movie times ($11 per person…what a rip off) and the hours that the Mexican restaurant that we want to go to.  It turns out that there is just no way to do dinner and a movie.  It will have to be one or the other.  Our babysitter will be here at 7.  Even if we drive right to the theatre, we won’t make it to the restaurant before they close.  And I really want authentic Mexican food.  Oh well.  I guess we will have to figure out something else to do to fill our couple hours of free time…..

Oh, and Melissa has a new trick.  If you ask her where her nose is, she will point to it, then proceed to stick her finger up it.  Cute isn’t it?

And if you really are interested…please feel free to check out our video collection here……

Must run….kids fighting over toy….

    I can totally relate to the situation of not enough time when you’ve got the babysitter coming to watch the kids. We usually have to choose between a movie or dinner and we usually opt for dinner so we can talk. Here’s another option…if you have time, maybe you could go to the movie and then to Starbucks for a quick coffee.

    I have Facebook too and I can see how it can be addicting!!!

    I am sooo addicted, too. Just like blogger. In fact, I am sitting in training for work right now trying to get away with looking at Facebook and my favorite blogs. I have to add you to my Facebook Friends!!!
