Nothin' Much!

We're not up to much these days. I'm enjoying my last couple of weeks of summer. Very soon (too soon), I'm back to work. I'm still working on re-organizing -- or should I say organizing -- my house.

Today Morgan went to see her daycare teacher (I've been taking her so she doesn't forget her), and then we went to the public library. And then I came home and did some things around the house. My days of being a stay-at-home mom are almost over -- at least for nine months -- so I'm just going to enjoy it. I'm going to be soooo sad taking Morgan to daycare in a couple of weeks.

Well, I've decided to venture out a little more into the world of online socializing. Backstory: In the past, I avoided MySpace, Facebook, etc. because I didn't want to associate myself with anything COOL. That was because I was a young teacher at a high school. Every day I encountered a co-worker that thought I was a student (I worked at a very large school my first year, so there were 250+ faculty and staff) and high school boys that (*gasp*) thought I was hot. So in an effort to associate myself with the older crowd and make myself less cool, I stayed away from the MySpaces and such.

Then a couple of years passed, I came became more comfortable with my age at work (I also moved to a school with lots of young teachers), and I probably became less cool. So I finally joined Facebook a few months ago (I managed to avoid MySpace altogether. Just a little to high-schoolish for me). And I like it well enough. Connected with lots of classmates from high school and college, blah, blah, blah. But I still take it pretty seriously and don't be"friend" anyone I don't actually know. Okay, maybe there's one or two people I don't know, like one of my favorite authors (and it's her personal page, too) who actually grew up with a girl I went to college with. So I'd say 99% of the people on my friends list are people I know. There are currently 30+ people waiting for my confirmation...I don't delete them until I'm absolutely sure I don't know them. For example, folks that go by their middle names in real life sometimes put their first names on Facebook, and I think I don't know 'em. Then when I find the time to actually click on their profiles and realize who they are, then I befriend them...

Whoa, I'm sooo off the subject here...

Anyway, I'm sure you've heard of Twitter. Maybe you have a Twitter account. I joined a couple of months ago because my employer tweets updates (that is the correct terminology, right?). But I hadn't signed in since that day. Well, after hearing about Twitter all the time on TV and reading articles on its rise in popularity, I've decided to try it.

Now, if you're not familiar with Twitter, but are familiar with Facebook -- think status updates. That's it. That's all Twitter is. And as a person that never really updates her "status" on Facebook, I didn't think Twitter was for me. Well, apparently, psychologically, people enjoy reading what you ate for breakfast this morning. And that you're on the beach getting some sun. I wish I can remember the article I was reading in the doctors office last week that talked about the psychology of Twitter...

Then I ran across this article today, that talks about how Facebook folks are moving to Twitter. Now that I'm a part of the online socialites, I have to stay up to date! Plus, I'm a technology teacher. I need to be dipping my spoon in the online hot spots. Sooo, I've said all of this to say I'm going to try Twitter. I'm going to install it on my phone and tell you when I'm about to put some hot dogs on the stove. That I suspect a stinky diaper. That I've been waiting to see the dentist for over an hour. Not my style, but we shall see.

Anyway, whew! Did we get a little wordy today, or what? :) Here are some pics from today (just hanging around the house).

Still in her PJs...she loves to hang out on Mama and Daddy's bed.

Playing around...

"Like my orange toy?"
"Mama, I think I want to play with your camera instead."

All over the place.

Me, holding the camera, thinking, "What in the world is she looking at?"
Guess I need to vacuum! Our very first case of "baby finding something you didn't even know was there!" Caught on camera! LOL!
Doesn't this face just LOOK guilty? :)

Have a great week everybody!
