Week #1....I am actually making it! Haha haha...ha......ha

I have officially gone a week without my facebook. :) In this time I have been really busy, so I haven't had too much time to lament and sit in sack-cloth and ashes and cry, "Woe is me!"

At this moment, I am very glad that I did. It is kind of...freeing in a way. I don't have to get on every 2 hours
and gawk at people's pics and get frustrated at everyone's complaining.

Forgive me. I made myself a promise that I would not use my facebook to complain. Ever. Well, it was sorta a promise. I hope kept it. But I'm not here to talk about facebook, believe it or not. I'm supposed to be taking a break from it.

It has been super hot here in KC this week. People come into Walgreens practically panting. This is how a typical conversation goes.

Me: "Hi! You doing OK today?"
Customer: "Pretty good. Just trying to stay cool. It's hot!"
Me: "Oh I know! I'm so thankful I work in the air conditioning!"
Customer: "Me too!"

I promise you that is what 98% of people say. And me too. =)

So tomorrow is my day off. I hope to get a lot done. I have this To-Do list which mostly consists of staying in contact with people. It goes something like this:

1. Call all grandparents.
2. Call Walgreens in Neosho.
3. Call 2 OBI friends
4. Text 2 OBI friends.
5. Write 1 OBI friend.

Isn't it pathetic how I have to put down a reminder to text someone?!? It is extremely pathetic! I just happen to be a terribly forgetful person.

Only like 6 weeks and 3 days till I go back to OBI! I am super excited!

Goodbye, Facebook! (I'll miss you. )': )

A lot of you, or some of you at least, my have noticed I deactivated my facebook page. Lord willing, it will only be temoporary.
 There are serveral reasons for this action. Yesterday I was reading in the Pentacostal Evangel about David Wilkerson. In the story, he sold his TV, which he used to watch every night from 12:00 am to 2:00 am. He asked himself, "What would happen if I dedicated those hours I watch TV to prayer?" And from that single commitment, his ministry was born. For those who may not know, David Wilkerson is the founder of Teen Challenge. He died in April, but his life and ministry still live on and speak to us me, today.
   Social networking for me, is my downfall, I guess you could say. It's like a habit. No, it is a habit. I do not believe it is wrong by all means, but it is wrong when you put something before God. So, I deactivated it until I can get ahold of myself. It's really sad when something runs your life, besides God.

  There are a few other reasons, but that is the biggest reason.

  So, I don't really know if anyone will read this because not that many people follow my blog, and I can't put it on facebook that I updated it. But I'm not heartbroken or anything. Hopefully I'm going to start blogging more. I like it, whether anyone reads it or not.

So, cheerio, I'm off to go shopping with my aunt and cousin before they leave for Neosho. :)
