Scroll down for another glimpse at this week…

As promised, I said I was going share the “real stuff”on my blog this week. The stuff some may be too embarrassed to share! Scroll to the bottom of my post from earlier this week to see some highlights of the week so far.


As I sit at practices, games and restaurants, I look around and notice that we are present physically, but absent because of the device that is ever present in our hands. I have to question if anything is that important on our phones than our families that are right in front of us.

Don’t you think our kids notice? Don’t you think they are craving our attention? When we were little our parents had to watch our games and talk to us during dinner. What is so important on our phones that continues to pull us away from living in the present?

I scroll Facebook and can’t help but notice we are posting, liking and commenting all day long, even when we are on vacation. There is no way that social media makes the majority feel good. I firmly believe that social media can make us look negatively at our own lives as we scroll and see what others are doing compared to what we are doing. I also believe that social media can make us competitive, jealous and envious. For example, while others are playing in the snow with their kids, I have been on Facebook, looking at their pictures, while my curtains are drawn so my kids don’t even know it’s snowing. I HATE playing in the snow. Our society wants to post that our kids are playing every sport while winning awards, traveling to Disney, earning good grades and getting along all the time. We rarely post the bad stuff, the crazy stuff, the real stuff that we can all relate to.

So why do we make it a weekly, monthly or daily habit? We scroll through and read our News Feed, every post, every day as if it actual news. We like and comment all day long. I have to question what we are missing while we are liking and commenting. Of course there is nothing wrong with scrolling through Facebook and there are many positives, but I find myself not always doing it at the best times.

This week I am going to post on my blog the real stuff, the stuff that will make everyone realize that social media is not as raw and transparent as it should be and I hope you will laugh along with me.

IMG_0158Here are my wedding rings. They have been missing  since last Wednesday. I looked everywhere and treated the girls as if they were POWs while interrogating them regarding the whereabouts of the rings. On Monday morning I found them in the parking lot of

my work. The one is a little crushed, the other perfect. I apologized to the girls. Sorry Dave if you happen to read this story. I will never lose them again.


Speaking of lost…








Posts from my community Facebook page about my missing animals. Sorry neighbors. We didn’t even know they were missing.

    Well said. I sometimes get disenchanted with FB. With that being said I never get tired of pictures and updates from friends and family. On the other hand I do not need to know who is brushing their teeth. BTW we never ever take our phone into a restaurant. I totally get that social media if you allow it can rob ones ability to enjoy the moment. Thank you Kristi.

    I think we all just need to find a happy medium. Do I really need to stay up until midnight looking at pictures on Instagram? ?
