It's a wonderful facebooky world!

I love Facebook. I love keeping up with friends and family that live far away, and also the ones that are right here in my town. It's fun to read what funny thing a friends' daughter said, or what crazy antics their boy has been up to, and without Facebook, I'd probably never know. It connects me to people I wouldn't normally know...when I want it to. :) It also serves as a personal journal of my daily life. Most of the time I keep my updates light, and try to put a funny spin on them. I started thinking the other day that I should record these updates here, on the ole blog, for my future memories. What better way to look back in 10 years and see what life was handing me in April 2010! So here are some of my favorite Facebook updates from this last month. They all start with Shelley...then the update. So here we go!

(Shelley)...thinks it's a Starbucks kind of day. totally exhausted, but apparently my kids aren't! I am praying they are finally all asleep. After hearing...MOM!...about 243 times in the last hour, my nerves are frayed! Did someone slip them Starbucks when I wasn't looking?

...Kids play tent, rocking horse, soccer goal, jump rope, doll high chair, and 2 bikes. Category? Things I had to move to get to the treadmill this morning. I think it's been too long!

...Finally got to mend all the clothes that needed mending. Think Austin's Christmas sweater will still fit next Christmas?! I was a little behind. :)

...It's a perfect day for playing in the rain!

...Another day, another trip to urgent care. I wonder when they'll give us our own parking spot?

...Potty training Austin...take 2. Any suggestions are welcome!!!

...Stinkin' tooth fairy. at Annie's first kindergarten event. Mercy time flies!

...Our plans for a relaxing day at Razor Ridge got canceled when Jason threw out his back first thing this morning. :( Thanks to Nana for coming over to help me this afternoon, and Uncle Chris for unloading the trailer! I am thankful for our family!

...just caught Austin trying to eat sugar out of the sugar bowl with a 1/2 cup scoop. That would not have been good. getting my car detailed right now. A normally 45 minute service has taken 1 1/2 far. I'm thinking they've figured out I have kids. :) thankful for my handy husband, who fixed our mailbox tonight! No more leaning over a cliff, or using the kids "robot claw" toy to get to the mail. I'm sure our mail lady thanks him too! :) up this morning, fixed my coffee, and slipped my "indoor" shoes on so my legs won't hurt while I run around the house. I am officially my mother.

...just managed to transfer a sleeping Austin to the car, and keep him asleep! I call that a miracle! trying the "naked in the backyard" method of potty training today. Lord help me! off to color eggs at Grammies house! My green hands will look lovely at church tomorrow. :)

...had a WONDERFUL girl babysit my kiddos today while I ran errands BY MYSELF! Thank you sweet Chelsea! Now Jason's tucking Annie into bed, and I'm listening to Ellie help Austin play computer games for a few minutes before their bedtime. Ahhh.....:)

That was fun!

Yes what a great idea! Do this at the end of every month....then you can look back years from now and see what life was like! I may do the same thing!

That is a great idea...did it take you very long to do it? I wish FB offered a way to print them off or something! :-)
