It has been one of those weeks. The ones where I do my best to get to bed early, get to the office early and avoid doing laundry. So my weekend is being spent running errands, doing laundry and those much needed naps.
I also had a moment this week where I realized that a “friend” defriended me from Facebook. Now, it isn’t that big of a deal but I had to laugh once I finally realized that I was down a friend on there. Sometimes the memories of those people you knew way back when was all just a facade. The reality is while someone goes on and on during a drunk moment about how nice they are that maybe they protest too much.
So Stacey and I got a good giggle out of it because really, we are all grown adults but if it is necessary to take that step, then by all means. I had realized fairly quickly that this friend was someone I really didn’t want to be around. I have issues but I am pretty honest about them and I laugh about them.
We also talked about when a friend is dating someone and the relationship ends. All of the sudden, the ex is defriending all of your friends. Why? I am still friends with some of ex’s friends there. It really isn’t that big of a deal.
But I guess FB has taken on a whole other level, one that makes people over share, post vague updates to get responses and scream about their baby daddy (thank goodness my newsfeed doesn’t look like that, try Lamebook for some funny posts).
I may share on here that I had female issues last year and certainly between friends, we chat about all kinds of TMI items but FB? My parents and their friends are on there! I will save the comedy bits about my uterus and share them in a different place. Thank you very much!
I also love the updates I have read on a thread of a message board that I visit. I know that you don’t care if I am ovulating, going to the OB/GYN or had a massive poop today. I can be tacky but at least I know where it is appropriate.
I get a giggle out of FB, love reconnecting with people from my past and seeing them with their families but I guess I have never really gotten to the point of deleting someone from my list because of something silly. But then again, I may be full of quirks but I have yet to really use them as my crutch in life. I am who I am.
Now back to my laundry. The cat refuses to help me with it so I am on my own.
