Annoying Facebook Posters

I’ll admit it.  I’m a bit of a Facebook addict.  I check it several times a day on my phone and often keep it open in a window on my computer while I work at home.  I can’t help it.  All of my friends and family are there and I want to know what’s going on in their world.  But then there are these people….and yes, they are friends.  Not close … [Read more...]

Noise Filtering

silence

At some point this past week, it struck me how "noisey" my life is. Of course, working in a school, that's a given. But that's obvious noise. So is the television...so is the radio in the car. The silent noise was what gave me pause, and mainly about the things I read online. The blogs I read...the posts on social networking sites. It seems as if it had suddenly become a … [Read more...]

When Facebook Meets Tragedy

  My family has suffered an incomprehensible loss this week, and if you are a regular reader, I do want to reassure you that I, my husband, and my son are fine in the physical sense.

It starts with someone sharing a little too much information.  Maybe they … [Read more...]

When you leave notes by the computer to remind yourself when your crops will be ready to harvest, you might have a Farmville addiction.(These notes belong to my husband, who is on vacation this week and who recently got sucked into Farmville. Please pray for him.) … [Read more...]

Girl Goes Geek

I've written in the past about how slow I am to adapt to technology, but today I outdid myself and here is why I deserved the two slices of cheesecake I had today.I was already super annoyed by the fact that my laptop was missing a couple of keys (the darn things just pop off and hide, apparently) but to top it off, the space bar on the keyboard popped off and the spring … [Read more...]

Gamer Girl

mario game

Once upon a time, I used to belong to a parenting forum and some of the women on there actually admitted to playing online games like World of Warcraft and The Sims and things like that. I honestly never understood the appeal. I likened playing online video games to something teenaged computer geek boys did. And for crying out loud, where did they find the time to play games? … [Read more...]
