Hi everyone. I’m taking a social media break for a while. There have been too many fights and too much politics and I don’t have time for it. I need to get back to focusing on the things that really matter: friends and family. Please feel free to call me, text, or even stop by if you’re in the area. See you in a few months!
Just one more thing before I take a social media break. I really liked the season premiere of Walking Dead. Now that I’ve seen it, I have a bunch of your “Walking Dead” posts to go back and comment on, but then I’ll really be off social media for a while. So please don’t message me here. See you in a few months!
I know I said ten minutes ago that I’m taking a social media break, but I just made The. Best. Avocado. Toast. I’ve never found an avocado before that so perfectly fit all the toast. Check out the photos, and I put a few more on Instagram. Anyway, I’m about to head down the block to visit my sister, and then John and I have a road trip planned starting tomorrow. See you next year.
OMG. My sister makes The. Best. Lipton. Tea. Here’s a photo of our mugs, and one of her cat Dave. That’s really it for a while. See you on the flip side.
One last thing before I take a social media break. My sister and I just sat down to watch Stranger Things, and now I understand what you meant with all of your posts! What a great show. Rita is annoyed that I jumped on my laptop three minutes after we sat down, but I had a lot of #StrangerThings posts to comment on. Sorry, Rita, you know I love you. Can you please move the baby to the other side of the couch so I can have the green afghan back? Anyway, Stranger Things is great, but I’m getting off for a while, so please don’t respond. Catch you next year.
I’m still about to take a break, but one of the neighbors just tagged me in a post saying a kid at our son’s school got harassed today because he has a disability. Just a reminder, please keep political posts off my wall. I don’t have time for politics now. Take care.
Even though I said three hours ago that I’m taking a social media break, I wanted everyone to know that I just got home from my sister’s. In fact, my life suddenly seems pretty quiet. So give me a call. Or text. Or stop by. OK?
Even though I said three hours and fifteen minutes ago that I’m taking a social media break, I figured I’d check in one last time, and I noticed that Nadine from church “liked” everyone else’s Stranger Things comments except mine. SMH. Eff you, Sister Nadine. And your crèche better not stick out into our yard again this year. This is why I’m taking a break. Why does everyone have to be so angry? See you in a few months.
Someone just PM’d me an article about how our son Evan’s history teacher was arrested for participating in a peaceful political protest this afternoon. They’re setting up a GoFundMe to help him with legal bills. As a reminder, I don’t have time for politics. Thank you.
I just wanted to wish a very happy birthday to James Franco.
I got a text from a friend saying my post about the teacher seemed insensitive. I don’t want to give the impression that I don’t care. So I figured I’d share my thoughts on the situation: There are no words.
Here are links to my posts about the teacher on Tumblr and Twitter (“There are no words” and “There are no words.”)
John and I are heading out on a trip to the Poconos for the weekend, even more reason I won’t be on social media. See you next year.
LOL. I am so scatterbrained, I can’t remember if we set the burglar alarm. Anyway, back Tuesday, 5 pm!
I wanted to share something. Tonight we were all sitting around the campfire, just enjoying the scents and sights of nature, not talking about politics or any recent events. We were singing campfire songs in unison, and I had a revelation. Isn’t “Found a Peanut” the same song as “Darling Clementine”?
We’re back home, and the jewelry’s still in its hiding place (the fake copy of Animal Farm in the garage) LOL.
What’s the password to get to my list of passwords?
OK, everyone, I need to get some things off my chest. I originally started checking this site two years ago for dog pictures. Then other people started posting their every thought, meal, and trip, and I began doing the same. It became hard to quit. I’ve been trying, but it’s difficult. My family is angry because I spent our vacation checking social media, and I just got a text from my sister saying she’s at my husband’s business dinner because I wouldn’t get off the computer to go. It also looks like I have a legal document in my e-mail from John. John, if you want to work on our marriage, why don’t you text me so we can discuss it IRL? And to Evan’s history teacher, if you happen to read this, please PM me as soon as they let you out so I can stop by with some avocado toast. There are no words.
