Why I'm taking a break from Facebook

Why I'm taking a break from Facebook.



by Tim Storey on Thursday, July 7, 2011 at 1:17am



I wanted to give a more complete answer to so many who have asked why Iím shutting my Facebook account off. First, Iím not deleting it, just shutting it off. I think all my photos and friends list will still be active if I ever re-activate the account.

This is not meant to be dramatic; itís just a statement of fact. I donít know how much time I have left on this planet. Does anybody really know? But, when youíve had two bouts with cancer, it just makes you really think about this. The fact is; I have so many things I still want to do with my life that I donít currently get around to. I have un-written songs in me, ideas for books that are just that Ė ideas. I am a crew member of another online forum and I have projects that I want to do there that I havenít had time to start. By the way, I invite any of my Facebook...

The Juggling Act.

Posted 07-03-2011 at 03:45 AM by MichelleluvsChristmas (Michelle's Christmas Blog!)

So I have started my new job as of yesterday and it has been an interesting couple of days so far. This particular agency offers shelter for homeless youth. They can come and stay the night, eat, shower and do laundry before leaving at 7 am. I was nervous at first, but the staff seem to be very welcoming.
However, I have become increasingly nervous about juggling school full time, 40 hours of work, and maintaining a relationship. It's almost scary that I have so much on the go, and part of me wants to curl up and not leave my apartment.
Then the other part of me, says that I can do it but I need to take it day by day.
I have worked so hard to get to where I am and I just don't want to become over loaded because I know I am a total nightmare to deal with when that happens. I also need to be able to find time to have alone time, and relax. I don't know how other people cope with so much on their plate, but I give them my respect.

Turning 60

Posted 07-02-2011 at 04:51 PM by caninemom3

It has been such a nice weekend so far. It has been sunny and warm and Summer is definitely in the air. It just happens that this day is a birthday that is bittersweet. It is the 60th birthday of my belated husband David.

When David was here one of the wonderful things about his birthday, aside from celebrating him, was that it was about that time of the year we began to plan for the coming Christmas Season each year.

It was always so exciting !! David loved Chrstmas almost as much as me. He definitely became the same little kid I do at Christmas. Each year at Christmas he spared no expense or time in making sure everything was as perfect as it could be for me and really for everyone.

There would always be a night, usually just before Christmas by about a week, where we went to his mother's house and he wrapped one by one the gifts he had bought me and would bring them into the living room to let me see them, shake them and wonder. Each ALWAYS...

All things Christmas!

Posted 06-26-2011 at 11:59 AM by MichelleluvsChristmas (Michelle's Christmas Blog!)

It sometimes makes me laugh how much I love Christmas. I remember when I lived in a group home, I took the tree in January while still decorated and placed it in my bedroom so I could appreciate it all year long!. I was made fun of (in a good way) by the staff and other residents, but they always told me it was what made me special.
I happen to now work at the same group home that I lived in 6 years ago. It's so amazing to be there around Christmas time, when they have no where to go. We come together, make a turkey for them, and we are given a nice budget to get them gifts.
This is a big reason why I love Christmas, being able to see their faces on Christmas morning. It's truly a blessing.
I could cry just talking about all the things I love about this holiday. Coming on this site every day truly makes me feel at home, because for a long time I thought I was the only Christmas nut.

Crazy weeks!

Posted 06-25-2011 at 09:43 AM by MichelleluvsChristmas (Michelle's Christmas Blog!)

What a crazy week it has been! I celebrated Father's Day with those who have been father figures in my life, graduated Monday, got offered a new job on Thursday and today (Saturday) I have a wedding to go to.

It's almost intimidating to see all this change happening all at once. It scares me because things are finally working out. I will also be working full time and doing online courses full time which is scary as well. I hope that I can push through with a normal amount of stress.

I think the best way to combat stress for me is to come here on MMC and just chat with everyone. I always love seeing everyone's pictures that they have posted in their albums! Such beautiful families and lovely decorations, and it just warms my heart. I cannot wait for Christmas to come, for the snow to fall, and to really be able to appreciate the true meaning of Christmas.

The best moment I had last Christmas, was skating in a public park. They had the barrels of
