So I’m on lock down tonight, meaning I have little money and it's raining this evening. Two kids, me, and Darren inside. Fun.
But, there is my favorite pastime…..Facebook…a world where everyone is happy. I get to read: My child received the overachieving, well behaved, obedient kid in the whole world certificate/scholarship/trophy. My husband bought me a $10,000 diamond and we are soooooooo in love. My family is going vacationing in the Bahamas for the whole summer. I just lost 500 pounds drinking special tea. I went shopping all day and my husband says spend more money! Lol. He is sooo cute! My kids just told me I’m the Greatest Ever and set up a lemonade stand so they can send me to the spa. My boss just told me I’m the best employee ever and I got a $1,000 dollar raise!
…etc. etc. etc
So now I’m officially depressed because everyone is so blankety, blank happy.
Let’s see, what could my Facebook say this week: Our van broke down in the middle of the highway, we don’t have the money to fix it, if I see one more hospital bill I’m going to scream, getting my son interested in school was a real challenge, my baby screaming tonight is driving me nuts, my work is overwhelming me, and I can’t fit into any of my summer clothing so I have to wear winter clothing like a weirdo because I can’t resist ice cream and lose the baby weight…(cough)…that would be my six year old baby. Did I mention I had a
fuss debate with my husband last night?
Man that Facebook status just stinks. Hmmm. Time to give my status a little face lift!
-our van broke down in the middle of the road (FB status: Our van is undergoing exciting repairs in the shop. Can’t wait. J)
-we don’t have the money to fix it (FB status: I live for good deals, plan to pimp my ride with antiques.)
-if I see one more hospital bill I’m going to scream (FB status: My mailbox is overflowing with people who can’t wait to hear from me. It feels so good to be wanted.)
-it was all we could do to get my son interested in school because he would rather act like a wrestler who sniffs Red Bull everyday (FB Status: The school says they have never seen anything like my son….soooo proud of his special energy.)
-my baby screaming is driving me nuts (FB Status: I’m Super Mom with Aspirin. He.he. ha. Ha. Loving Life.)
-my work is overwhelming me (FB Status: It is so fulfilling to be busy…I am most important at my job.)
-I can’t fit into any of my summer clothing so I have to wear winter clothing like a weirdo because I can’t resist ice cream and lose the baby weight. (FB Status: Trying on hot new fashions. Scarves and pants all the rage this summer. Plan on doing some sweet heavy lifting tonight.) *special note- add a picture from the neck up.
-Did I mention I got in a little argument with my other half? (FB Status: I just love how passionate my husband is, had another interesting conversation, lucky!)
Great! Now I’m ready to post my life on Facebook.
I smell another new job idea!
