This is my first 7 Quick Takes Friday from my new blog. I REALLY want to get in the habit of writing more often. I am finding it a bit difficult to break my unintended silence.
For the past couple of years I have fasted facebook and blogs for Lent. This year I will fast facebook again (which means fasting from Farmville, my most ridiculous addiction yet.) The only exception to that is that when Meg, our daughter, turns 13 on February 23, I will help her set up her facebook account and I'll log in long enough to accept her friend request :) but I won't update my status or read any feed or...(I do think this year that I am not going to fast blogs.)
I have thought a lot about the whole fb thing. For sure we would not allow Meg to join before she is actually 13. Meg has not been overly into email or anything else, and she is responsible, so I feel comfortable letting her get on, especially because she has friends and family all over the globe.
Troy and I have been working on getting some healthier habits going, especially eating. We just finished the first 2 weeks of South Beach, we both feel better, and our clothes are roomier :) We were very good and did not even cheat with Nic's birthday ice cream, Nic's birthday cupcakes, or Nic's birthday pancakes. That said, we are definitely enjoying our strawberry & yogurt smoothies this morning :)
I have been bracing myself for the new fb layout that everyone seems to be whining about today. Still haven't seen it. I wonder how many new layouts I'll miss during Lent :)
We have finally had some sun again. Driving to work has been amazing...headed right into a big orange sunrise. Love it.
I finally found some whole wheat pitas here that are good. Usually they just seem like they are "off" but these seem like they are going to be much better.
Nic, our son, turned 10 last Sunday. No more kids in single digits! He had a great birthday. I have to say that I enjoy my kids more and more every day as they grow. I am blessed with the person each of them is growing into.
