The magic number today is 9. I have 9 more teaching days with my students. Now to be honest, they have more than that, but I am using up my vacation and sick days, and therefore only have 9 glorious days!!! And…we are projected to get another, yes another, winter storm Tuesday into Wednesday! We’ll see if that pans out, but how crazy would that be? In other news, I took tomorrow off because, HALLELUJIA, I am getting my braces off tomorrow! Finally…two years, one oral surgery, countless rubber bands, buttons, cleats, and cut up lips and cheeks, later I will have a gorgeous set of pearly whites to show off! I am very excited and plan to hop on over to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory the minute my appointment is over and get a delicious, caramel apple to bit right into! Yum.
So, onto the point of my title. I have a dilemma. About a year ago, I joined Facebook and then two weeks later I deactivated my account. There were several reasons. One – Facebook is a black hole of time. Two – I felt pressured into approving every friend request I got, even though I really didn’t want to have anything to do with some of the people who friended me (other than to find out if they had actually become a brain surgeon or were still living it up on their Mom and Dad’s dime – I know shame on me). Three – I was working on finishing up my Master’s thesis and didn’t need another distraction. However, recently, my husband joined facebook again, he quit just like I did. Anyway, he keeps telling me that I should join back up because everyone in my family is on facebook – except maybe my Grandma, but she has gotten pretty computer savvy so you never know.
I just can’t decide if I really want to or not. Then there is the guilt of refusing friend requests, although, I know this is something that I must do if I want to enjoy my facebook experience. Also, I would need to figure out a way to sift through all the idle chatter. Some times it is fun to read, but really I don’t need to know that you just dug out the biggest ingrown toenail of your life, or your dog was humped by a rotweiler at the dog park. Do you know what I mean? I love sharing my stories with you all, which is why I love this blog. So, do I join back up or not? Such a dilemma. What do you all think? How much time do you spend Facebooking, or have you resisted the tempatation? I would love to hear your thoughts. Well, until next time. Hugs, Erica
