Facebook

I have a love hate relationship with Facebook. I love going on there and being able to keep in touch with friends and look at people's pictures but then I hate going on and seeing pregnancy announcements or belly pics or really anything pregnancy related. I know this is wrong of me but it just rubs me the wrong way. These people have every right to be excited and post exciting updates but to me, it's like a punch in the gut. I will never announce on Facebook or post pictures for the public. Maybe I'll make a private album... I don't know. I just know that it really really hurts me and I never want to give others this same hurt. That's just my personal opinion. Although really, today's punch, serves me right. I was snooping and lurking and found out someone was pregnant. It's not like they wrote to me or that it was even on my newsfeed, I just clicked on something which led me to another page which made me find out... you know the story oh too well. And now I feel like I've been knocked off my chair. I've been doing so well this past week with feeling optimistic and positive and looking towards the future but now I feel all down again. I find it really hard when people who got married after me (some significantly after me) are getting pregnant and getting take home babies. It's irrational but it's how I feel. Blah.

On a more positive note though, we get our house in 2 days! I'm trying to keep thinking about this because it makes me happy. To think that this time on Thursday I will be standing in our new house and it will be all ours. No more renting. Our house. :) Here is a pic of us in front of our house that we took back in April when we got the home inspection done.

  1. Well expressed, sweetheart. I'm sorry it hurt you so much but dare I ask who is pregnant? Your situation is giving us all a heads-up on how to be discrete about how to speak to other young couples. We had a baby calf born today ... a bull ..... He looks beautful in spite of being in bred. I'm really enjoying Bunny being here .... especially getting up at 2 am when Daddy fell. (Obviously she also enjoys having someone else type her messages :>) }
    Hope your moving goes smoothly. We're really excited for you!
    Mia is too adorable. Good luck with the potty training. What are you doing with her while you're at work?
    Our garden is doing will .... all caught up in weeding ... thanks to Bunny's help. Daddy gets out sometimes too to hoe.
    Love ya
    Mom

  2. I totally agree with you about FB. It's tough!
    Your house looks so pretty. What a great picture of the two of you. Mike and I have a similar pic of us when we bought our house in '06 with the SOLD sign out front. What a great memento to keep. It's a great feeling standing in "your own" house. I love painting and decorating. Wish we lived closer. ;) Have fun!
