Social Networking is not for Families

My entire family is now on facebook. It's really annoying. I don't feel like I can update statuses without thinking twice about what I'm saying. My mom is now on there and I really don't want a phone call about why I'm depressed about the weather or why I feel its appropriate to let every know about blah. It’s not like I hide anything from my parents, but I feel more watched. That's the super annoying part. I know I can limit my profile and things from them, but then it really does feel like I'm hiding stuff and I'm really not. I think I'm just annoyed. I'm sure I'll get over it until I get a phone call about something stupid.

GFHS is still facebook messaging me. It's lost all of its entertainment.

Mother's day was hectic. I hope all the momma's had a great day! I sent my mom purple tulips and Dave and I took her and my dad to lunch. We then came home and cleaned the house and had his parents over for dinner. It was fun family time but I was wiped out by 9pm.

So I need suggestions for reading material.

Ok. so i'm in the same boat with the family thing. and I really don't even like my family. and sometimes i like to share that because...well...because it's my facebook/myspace/whatev. it annoys me bigtime. i hate it. sometimes i just want something incognito...something just mine for just my peoples. *sigh*

Reading material-I'm needing some ideas too. I have bookshelves full of books I wanted to read at dome point, but I have lost interest, and in 4 LONG days I will be able to read something besides pharmacy stuff!!! Ok so you have read twilight what about the Host? It was good. Have you read the Poisonwood Bible, The Shack? I haven't but they have been recomended to me. I will keep thinking and get back to you...

I have really learned to limit what my facebook status says..no family on there but still I really don't need the girl from my 7th grade class or one of Jacob's teachers knowing that I am still drunk from the night before...lol

I.so.agree. My family isnt on fbook, but I have tons of co workers and stuff on there. I feel like I have to edit EVERYTHING. I have 4 privacy lists.. some cant see this, some cant see that.. It's all very frustrating.and it's not b/c I'm some cuhrazy lush, but just b/c I dont need my coworkers knowing every single thing I think! I even think "shit. I updated my status at 3.. will my boss see that and think i wasnt working?"!
