Love? Don't Love?

Things I love:

  • Kids making choices
  • Sushi (Did anyone else see the slideshow on SeriousEats.com today?  Yummm)
  • A clean kitchen
  • Fresh flowers
  • Watching my husband play with kids.  Any kids.  He's a genius with them.
  • Tiny green tomatoes in the garden.  (There are two tomatoes and THAT means I get to use the plural!)
  • Pants that fit
  • Sunshine


Things I don't love:

  • Students who don't show up
  • Charging late fees
  • Uncertainty
  • TMI on Facebook.  I keep thinking I should just shut down my account...or unfriend people...but what if I can do something to HELP them with the trainwreck of a life they're creating?  (Like a well placed comment on my part will help??)  Just makes me want to cry.  And, unfortunately, it makes me sound completely judgemental.  Emphasis on the "mental."  
  • Vacuum cleaners that stop sucking when pollen season hits, and it's finally hot enough to open our windows at night.  And OF COURSE trees release pollen at 5:30 in the morning.  Vacuum cleaner, you worked perfectly until I cleaned your brushes last week.  What's wrong with you??
  • Stomach aches
  • Pants that don't fit.

TMI on FB - you can "hide" them. That's what I do when things get too weird. That way they are still friends, but you can't see their postings. Then when you want to peak in, you just "unhide" their posts.

I like the hide button. A lot. Your feeds will still go through to them but you don't have to read their stuff unless you want to and then it's just a matter of clicking on their profile. :)

I love this idea! May steal it. I was cringing that I was one of your TMI friends, then realized I am "Friends" with your sister but not you. So you are SAFE! :)

Totally with you on the pants, both directions. ;)
