Status Update

I’m taking some time off of Facebook.

My need to even post this shows how caught up and bound I feel, because in the long run, who really cares?

But you might care if you notice we are no longer friends or if your page that I once liked has gone down a like because I am not there to like it right now.

Please know that I still like you.

All I know is that I am in a difficult season and the constant feed of information and quasi-relational contact and alarmist news and links and requests have caused me to reach my social media tipping point.

I will continue to write here for those who care to read while bidding adieu to my #1 referrer. Facebook has been good to me that way. Numbers. You have been good to me, too, Readers.

It is for you faithful readers that I offer this vignette from my life.

I am in the car with my three not-so-little girls on the way home from the dollar movie. Boxtrolls.

Me ~ Later today I will be dropping you off at Grandma and Grandpa’s for about an hour. I have an appointment.

Roo ~ Like with a therapist?

Me ~ (shocked and surprised but playing it cool) Yes. You are exactly right. With a therapist.

Roo~ Yeah. So you’ll probably talk about stress and stuff?

Me~ (still caught off guard by how this conversation is playing out) You’ve got it! That’s what I will be doing.

So there you have it. When my kids grow up and people ask how their mom did it with eight kids, I don’t have to worry about them sugar-coating anything.

Lots of hard work. Many meltdowns. And therapy.

Feel free to use this contact form should you need to be in touch. Hugs!

    You ask, “Who really cares?” Well, listen to me, friend: I DO!!!!! πŸ™‚ And many other people, too. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for explaining your absence from FB, and a high-five to you for knowing when to pull the plug on that form of social media.

    As always, I admire you for your realness; and I really do think your lack of sugar-coating is one of your strongest attributes. Those areas in which you feel weak, God shows Himself strong and is glorified through your life.

    I love you very much and respect you immensely!!!
