Well I made it about 10 days off facebook and then I had a question to ask and once you google the question and do not receive the answer you are hoping for, where else do you go?  🙂  Facebook.  But ... I am not spending as much time on facebook, at least. I am... Continue Reading →


10 Day – No Facebook

I have to admit, I really don't even miss it.  If anyone has anything important to share with me they message me and vice versa.  Can I make it to 30 days!  It is looking more promising that I will.

YiaYia and her grandkiddos …

I worry about my grandkids sometimes. I so hate for them to suffer as kids often do at their ages with friends who won't be friends anymore, feeling like no one likes them, etc.  They are all such sweet kind hearts and that sensitivity is such a gift but it also can feel yucky.   I...

No Facebook – Day 7

No Facebook ~ 5th day

Yesterday was another no Facebook day.  Today I have to go on long enough to do a writeup on our local paper's facebook page and then I will deactivate again right away.  Having just said that, now I'm worried that my posts disappear from the Reporter's facebook page when I deactivate.  I have asked my...
