Sunday afternoon chit chat?

Is anybody around this afternoon? It's a rainy, lazy Sunday afternoon for me, just lounging around and doing a little bit of online shopping. How bout you ladies?

    I'm watching football and I just ordered a bunch of wedding photos as Christmas gifts. It's the only year of my life that I can be this disgustingly narcissistic for Christmas, and I'm going to take advantage!

    I'm watching football and having a really lazy day/weekend with H.  It's the last day of his leave and one of our last Sundays before he leaves so we're taking full advantage of a lazy football Sunday.

    I just got home a little while ago. I just ate dinner and relaxing now. I had an awesome time visiting my sister and parents. I'm excited to go back for Christmas now. 

    So I hid one of my best friends on FB today. I love her to death, but she is one of those that literally everything she puts on facebook is about her daughter, and she does it all day. I just couldn't take it anymore. I love her, her daughter, and her entire family, but I don't need updates every few hours on it.

    GG, I have every reason to believe that in my newlywed state of overshare about love for H I have been hidden by everyone. 

    It's my own fault, and I'm okay with it.

    I just got back from my FILs house...I dropped FI off at the airport and drove home. It was a great week and we got a lot of wedding stuff done. Engagmenet pictures, bought our invitationes (black friday ftw), met with the priest for Pre-Cana, decided on a cake place, and overall had a great weekish. It's a little sad to be back in my lonely apartment now. =(

    Stan, but yours are funny. You don't whine about missing him like other spouses I am friends with.. I can deal with cute funny stuff. I can't deal with annoyingly mushy stuff when a person sees their significant other every day. That gets annoying. Anddd thats not all you post about, you have other things too. 

    I am friends with a girl whose H is at the same training as my H. She literally posts every day about missing him, and how she can't wait for him to get home and how this is so hard. I feel like saying lady, he's gone for a month, what are you going to do when he's deployed? Deal with it.

    <div>Yeah, I totally know what you mean. I'm only friends with H's boss's wife on FB, so I don't see anything annoying, because she isn't. But I deleted a lot of military spouses before H left because their deployment statuses were too depressing, even if they were very loving. Everyone IRL expects me to be bummed out and act strangely when I'm not. I miss my H man, but I'm not going to tell anyone besides him and God if it's hard, kwim? And by the time I get to talk to him, it's not even hard anymore (Lol. That's what she said) ,besides when he tells me he had a difficult flight or something. ETA: And even then, by the time he tells me, he's obviously gotten through it and is alive and well, so I try and be supportive and silly then to help him out, and then cry a little later or whatever girl thing I feel I need to do.</div><div>

    I hate to admit this, but I keep a couple of people as FB friends because of their ridiculous status updates.  They drive me nuts but entertain me all at the same time.  If I know what your unborn child will be named, your exact due date, when you decordated the baby room and when the carpet got put in, and we haven't talked in 6 months...I think you put too much on FB.

    I'm sitting at home waiting for my little brother and his girlfriend to come over for dinner--they're visiting her family and I haven't seen them in about a year, so it will be fun to see them.  FI got called into work (for the second time this weekend) so I'm hoping he gets home at a decent hour and gets home in time to see my brother.  There was a third carjacking in our area this week, and they needed everyone in to work the investigation--all the victims were older adults (65-75), which is really sad.  Hopefully they catch the guy asap!

    Posted by WishIcouldbeinthe'stan[/QUOTE]<div>Exactly. I don't need everyone on FB to know that I miss him or anything, obviously my H isn't gone that long right now, so I am really ok anyway, but even when we were long distance and such, I didn't blast it all over facebook. Maybe, maybe, once in a while I would say something like I want to go on a date or something, but that would be it. </div><div>Although, I do post about missing my friends back in my hometown sometimes. Last weekend one of my best friends got engaged and was having a huge party with family and friends to celebrate. I really wished I was home then and I had a status update about it. </div><div>

    Stan-Your FB makes me smile daily! 

    I'm attempting to bake my own bread.. it hasn't been going well at all!  And I'm a pretty good baker!  The dough didn't really rise much, but I'm hoping that's because it's a whole wheat bread..  It's in the oven now, so we'll see! If it's terrible, the chickens will feast tomorrow!!

     Oh! and I chipped a tooth.  It's not bad at all, just annoying for my tongue to keep running across.  I'm going to call my dentist tomorrow to see if he can fit me in to just file it down.

    I have a separate FB account with just spouses and family members from the command, and most days when the ship is gone I can't even stand reading messages.  I miss my husband when he is gone, but I don't need to blast it on FB to gain sympathy from people.  I'll probably make a post once he is gone to let our family and friends know, and then maybe a few here and there.  

    Not gonna lie, those of you who are my FB friends might end up blocking me fromt posts about the house.  Everyone at home keeps asking for pictures and updates on our situation, and it's a million times easier to just post on FB than to text everyone.

    House things don't bother me that much either. I just get bothered when a person only ever posts about a certain topic ALL THE TIME whether its their child, husband, hating life, or vaguebooking. 

    I also dislike people that post some kind of status every time they have a fight with their SO. I don't need to know every time you have a fight with your signifcant other, thanks. I have a friend that used to do that constantly. One of my best friends and I would text each other whenever a new update was posted to joke around about it. 

    In other funny news of the weekend, my 3 year old niece is way too quick witted and a smart ass. I told her to come help me clean up the markers, and she got mad and goes to me "I'm sorry for your face". I go what, and she repeats. I  ask what that means and she says "you have a mean face". 

    It was so hard to keep a straight face as my sister was disciplining her about being nice. I had my hand covering my mouth trying not to laugh. 

    Now my sister and I will be fighting and one of us will go "i'm sorry for your face".

    A friend of mine from HS (side note: we were never all that close, but she did meet her H at my 17th birthday party!) just had a baby and she does a daily baby pic.  I could understand if her family lived far away, but her entire family lives in our town.  He's like a week old, all he does is sleep which doesn't really make for interesting pictures. I finally hid her, and then wouldn't you know that I saw her at WalMart and she asked if I'd seen the pictures of him, so then I felt guilty for hiding her.  Not guilty enough to unhide her though!

    Haha Ggirl sometimes kids are hiarious without even realizing it.  

    Yeah I think my biggest pet peeve about FB is "vaguebooking", which i didn't know was a term until reading your post.  I want to scream when I see those status comments, then of course someone asks what's wrong, and the response is "I don't want to talk about it."  Then don't put it in freaking FB!

    And I agree that it's annoying when people only post about one thing.  LIke always about their kids, or their H, or their job.

    </div><div>I get that facebook is an easy way to communicate when family is out of town, but there is also email too. I don't mind updates about the baby and the pregnancy and pictures, I just get annoyed when its all the person posts about their baby. In the case of my best friend, its like she became a SAHM and went crazy. Literally, every single thing on her facebook is pictures of her child, what thing she said today, what their plans are for the day, what preschool she is going to! (she's not even 2 yet).

    Vaguebooking is the devil! I do it, but I cop to it so I don't get those, what's going on? posts. When my best bud was doing IVF (and I was doing her injections), it was almost impossible, because I was so excited and nervous. 

    Sami, do you have any cute DIY wrapping ideas on your pinterest? I could go check of course, but every time I go near your pinterest, I'm sucked in for at least an hour because it's so full of goodness!

    I'm rather anti-FB-status-updates unless they're necessary to convey information.  FI is guilty of posting his every thought, exercise routine, and meal.  I give him a lot of sh*t for it. 

    Although I've become a proud Momma of my puppy, so I've posted a bunch about her!  But she really is remarkable (I know, that's what everyone says about their puppy or child, but it's true) - today we built the weave bar (clicky - not my dog, but an example of the exercise and similar to the type we built) and the super-low jump (clicky for example video - she's a pup, so we are keeping it super low as we don't want to have her doing big jumps to hurt herself).  She's doing the weave bar, though only with guidance, and she's doing the jumps pretty consistently.  And she also learned to lay down and is starting to learn to roll over!  Super smart.  We've only had her a week!

    Okay, okay, I know - I'm a pain, and mildly obsessed.  I would understand if people on FB hide my posts if they aren't dog people.  I am honestly not much of a dog person in general, so I totally understand.  I don't hide people often, but I might be tempted to hide me.  That's sort of my threshold - I always ask if I'd want to hide me based on my posts before I post something.

    Stan, I think your FB posts are fine.  They're cute, and newlywed-y.

    I do have one very dear friend who I hid her posts because all she does is passive aggressive comments towards her ex and his family.  It's really ridiculous.

    C-its brand new to you though so it probably doesn't bother anyone since you just got her (and she is pretty cute to look at)

    My H almost never updates his status, unless he's been drinking haha. Or the most recent one is because he was signed on at work and his buddy updated it. Of course it had to with the mustaches they are growing (gag me with a spoon).

    I'm hoping I get an iPhone for my birthday or Christmas, and if I do, you better believe I'll be creating my own YouTube channel for my pup!  Then at least my FB friends won't have to deal with as many posts, and I can still brag.  I can't wait to videotape her and show you all - you must think I'm crazy, but just wait until you see!

    Going a long with annoying facebooking...I know a girl that is married to my friend's brother, I think that is the only reason she saw fit to add me as a friend. She is 3 years younger than me, has been married for 2 years and has a one year old and another baby on the way. her Husband is in the Navy, so we have talked maybe once about it. I'm pretty sure her graphic statuses make me never want to have children. EVER. 

    The kid is a year old and she still posts statuses about how he won't sleep through the night, and about 100 pictures a day of him.. all doing the same thing.  She apparently has hard pregnancies, or she just complains a lot...because my news feed always has one from her about feeling sick or not being able to eat... I understand people have hard pregnancies, but most people don't really care if you have heartburn or just threw up, unless it is your doctor. It is just TMI.

    It was 90 degrees in Southern Cali today. There was a horrible wind all morning and I have sneezed about 500 times today. So I was feeling a little miserable until FI came over after work. :) Sad the long weekend is over though.
