8 Days Down, 23 to Go

Man, 23 days sounds like a LONG TIME! This Twitter/FB hiatus countdown is almost as bad as when I'm counting down the days until LDR and I see each other again. Which is 42 days as of today. :(

I miss my Tweeps! I didn't realize how much we really "talk" to each other, until about 2 days into this hiatus. I miss my fitness motivation. I miss the "Shoe Porn" pics of all the fabulous shoes. I miss hearing about what's going on with folks' spouses, kids, jobs...everything! I *slightly* miss certain folks talking smack about their football teams and trying to clown mine. Slightly. They know who they are. :lol:

I miss our group tv show time: comments on Glee, DWTS, Teen Mom, and all the NFL games. It seem crazy, but it feels weird to watch these shows and not trade comments with the tweeps. Kind of boring.

I do miss FB, but not as much. Being gone from FB just makes me feel like I'm "out of the loop." Like, two people from my hometown passed in the last week or so; I found out the old fashioned way, via my telephone convos with LDR.

But, I am getting my reading done, and my bedtime is more consistent. I start yawning around 9:30 and most times I am in the bed by 10:00. If not for the hiatus, I'd be up late trading comments, recipes, photos and everything else.

For those who were wondering, Dad is back home. He had some swelling in his leg the other day, so he had to keep it elevated. I think the culprit is him not taking his Prilosec. With his limited budget, he wants to spend his money on other things. I can sort of understand. I'm sure he feels like his life is hanging on a thread, and he wants to go out doing the things he loves to do. But I need him to take those meds. I think I'll send my mom some money so she can go to the store and stock up on a few boxes.

So, what have y'all been up to? Is everyone still exercising? Eating healthy? Rebuking foolery? I know y'all miss the FBP posts. I'll be sure to bombard you get you caught up with his foolery when I return. Stop by the blog and say hi! I think I've posted a blog every day since 10/1. :)

Hey lady! You are missed indeed! Believe it or not so much has happened in the few days you've been gone. Everything is still all good, though. I'll have to come back over here and keep up with you. Psssst...don't tell anybody, but I didn't know you had a blog. This is just our secret. Okay? Cool. Take care. LOL

I'm glad to hear that your dad is doing better. And yes, we miss all the FB foolishness. And you totally missed shoe porn that I posted the other day. Oh yeah, I got my witchy ingredients so I just have to get my cauldron ready :P

Kayla - I thought I had posted some links before. Oops! I guess not. Well now you know (and knowing is half the battle - G.I. Joe. LOL) :)

Christie - LOL @ witchy ingredients! That reminds me, I need to do a scalp massage myself. You'll have to re-post that shoe porn when I get back!

Yes you are missed! So much tomfoolery has been going on on both FB & Twitter. I have "other" ways to get in touch w/ you though so I'm happy! :)

It does suck to admit that you are more productive without FB and Twitter. I recognized my laptop was a distraction....yet, haven't done much about it. Lmao.

Baby steps, my dear, baby steps.

I try not to bring the laptop into my bedroom for that very reason. Instead of going to bed like I need to, I'll be sitting up playing on the laptop. LOL!
