Over the past few years, in particular when we were living abroad last year, Facebook became something of an addiction for me. I think there are two reasons why I check it do many times per day, and look at all the pictures my friends from grade school post:
1. I’ve always been really interested in other people’s lives. That’s why I watch crappy reality TV about divorced “housewives” and like reading memoirs and biographies.
2. I’m a stay at home mom. There are so many reasons why my career is on hold for my little buddy, and I love almost every minute of my days watching Patrick grow up and figure things out. But, there is a void: interaction with other adults, well actually just other people to have a conversation with and talk about something other than milk, dirty diapers, and Legos. While FB doesn’t actually give me face-time, it gives me an almost real-time connection to other people.
Pat has been hounding me about not posting anything on this blog for a few years, so I decided that my resolution for 2012 would be for more blogging, and less Facebooking. We’ve got a pretty exciting year coming up, so hopefully I can share some insights with everyone who reads this site, which I pretty much think is only Kara Lindstrom, and maybe a SPAM robot trying to sell me natural male enhancement products. Read up, share with your friends, and comment on my posts.
