Beginning to Loathe Facebook



Remember when Facebook was just for college students? I remember trying to figure out my college email password so I could get logged on Facebook. Then I remember someone asking me if they could use my college email to sign on. I can't remember who that was for the life of me. There are reasons why I love Facebook. Don't get me wrong, I don't know what my life would be like without it. Everyone who is everyone has a Facebook. It is a great tool to share photos with your family and friends, update people on your marital status or lack thereof, sharing the big news that there will be a new addition to the family (me times 3), or just notifying people what you did that day. 

However, there are things I HATE about Facebook.

1.  EVERYONE IS ON FACEBOOK. That includes my parents and my pastor. I have to watch what I post on Facebook so that I don't offend anyone or make sure I told my mom something before I post it on Facebook.  Soooo glad my grandmother is not hip to Facebook yet.

2. YOUR BUSINESS IS MY BUSINESS. I hate when people post stuff like "I had a bad day : (" But they don't explain the bad day.  And when you ask them what is wrong they say, "I can't even...right now." WHAT?!! But you wanted people to know you had a bad day. I really want to know why your day was horrible. 

3.  NOT GOOD FOR SOLICITING ADVICE. I posted a general question. "Where can I buy poodles?" and then someone likes the status. Why are you liking my status? Answer my question! I want to know where I can purchase a poodle not that you like that I want to know where to purchase a poodle. 

4. CHANGING IDENTITY. A couple of times people have tagged me in a picture that wasn't me. And of course, my mother asked me who it was. *Kanye Shrug* Beats me. 

5. IF YOU LOVE JESUS LIKE/SHARE THIS PHOTO OF JESUS, IF NOT KEEP SCROLLING. I am so sure that Jesus doesn't care if I like His photo or not. I am sure he want me to so other thing with my time instead of "liking" "His" photo. (I do love Jesus, you guys)

6. LIKE/SHARE THIS PICTURE IF YOU CARE ABOUT THIS GIRL WHO HAS SOME DISEASE. I am sure that me liking/sharing this picture will make this girl's disease disappear. So I don't sound so mean, I heard of this picture of a girl who is bald going around Facebook saying "This lady has cancer and she looks better than 90% of the women on here." This lady actually went on the news to say she doesn't have cancer. SMH.

7. WHEN FEMALES CURSE FACEBOOK OUT. I have seen this so many times. A female will curse and use all caps telling another woman to stay away from her man. Why are you cursing at Facebook and the rest of your Facebook friends. Please call that young lady and tell her how you really feel. I have since deleted people who do that, I don't need that kind of drama. I have enough with my kids.

8. NOT IN ORDER. I hate when I log on to Facebook and I see a post from 22 hours ago, then the post directly below was 15minutes ago, and then the post below that one says "yesterday". Why are the posts not in order?

9. 1/1000 PEOPLE SEE MY FB PAGE POSTS.  I sometimes skip posting anything on my Facebook page because no one sees it. They want you to spend money promoting a post to people who aren't subscribed to your Facebook page. That is why I started a Facebook group called Love. Post. Blog. (Shameless Plug).


Sorry for the late post! Happy Monday!

I Woke Up in a New House! + Giveaway

If you noticed or cared, I have not been blogging alot lately. Only because we got a new house, got 3 trillion boxes to unpack, and we have 3 kids who could care less and can't help unpack their own rooms. But I do love my new home!
My oldest son has his own room, which he is totally excited about because he loves saying "I am going to watch TV in MY ROOM." Lol, gotta love this kid.
It has tons much more space than our 3 bedroom apartment we had in Texas. I mean look at our backyard. It is fenced in, so my boys can play safely outside.  I might need to invest in some patio furniture. The only thing about being a military family, you are afraid to buy big pieces of furniture because you may not be able to fit it in your next home.

So I had to to buy a few new items for my new home. My daughter received some new bedding for her crib.  I love the tulle crib skirt. My two youngest share a massive playroom now. That way both of them have room to dump all of the toys and millions of legos on the floor without it reaching my living room. I hope!
My oldest son got a new bookshelf for his books.
I hope to have more pictures to share once we get rid of all the boxes. It was a bit overwhelming opening boxes and figuring out where they belong. Hopefully we will be done by Easter and our home will look like a home.

I feel so truly blessed and thankful to God that he gave us a new home and fresh new start in a state closer to our family. I couldn't be more happy.
