I used to have a myspace page (still do, just don't use it), now I have a Facebook page and I have become enslaved by it. I don't seem to be able to walk past my laptop without checking my page. I am not sure what I think I could have missed, but the urge is so strong that I must check it.

All that being said, I am thankful for it. I have found many old friends and have made some new ones. In some ways, it is my connection with the outside world (lame as that may seem). It seems as I have gotten older, I am more satisfied to be at home. Bob and I have always been very different. He used to want to be alone and I wanted to be with other people, but it seems now that we have changed roles. I am not sure why, maybe it is because the idea of going places with two kids just seems like too much bother. Don't get me wrong, I love my kids and am thankful for them everyday, but sometimes I just want to be alone. Sometimes I joke about not even being able to take a crap by myself. Maybe I am not joking.

I have also found that I have less and less friends as I get older. When I was younger, I was always one of the guys and most of my friends were guys, besides chicks were always too competitive. Now I wish that I had more girlfriends, so that I could have somebody to talk about life with. Sure I have made many "mom" friends, but I have no friends that I just talk to because I need or want to. Friends in many ways are more precious than family (other than Bob or the kids).

So be good to your friends, love them, take care of them and talk to them, they might really need you...

It has been forever since I posted anything on here!! I am sure that I no longer have any readers, but if you do happen to stop by, hello.

I should start blogging again, but for now I have to get through next week. Sophia is starting kindergarten. I was sort of down about it last night, but I know she will love it and make new friends. Nick starts preschool the following week and that is just so hard to believe! It seems like only yesterday we were waiting for him to be born.

Time moves on and kids grow up too fast...
