I’ve been on Facebook for a very long time. Since 2013? 2011? Something like that.
Recently, my Facebook use has gotten a bit excessive. As in, scrolling on Facebook has become an unacceptable time-suck in my life.
I am connected with far-flung family and friends through FB, as I have lived all over the country, and so do my friends and family, so I don’t plan to quit it completely, but I haven’t been on for over a week and the lack of daily scrolling sessions has not been in the least unbearable.
After this past week of total blackout, I’ll likely go back on sometime this weekend, but I will avail myself upon the scheduling software available to assist me in establishing/keeping limits on my use.
My Facebook habits have been causing issues in my most important personal relationship and I will never let a computer program get between me and real-life Human Interactions.
I spent another wonderful weekend with my Love in Woodbridge.
Earlier today, we went for a walk at Lodi Lake Park, where we usually ride our bikes.
We walked past the lake, and walked the loop through the nature preserve.
It was pretty warm, but we saw the deer and squirrels galore.
On our way back, past the playground, there were many people along the lake side, and right when we passed, not 10 feet from us, a man pulled a limp, maybe 2yo, boy from the water.
I think the sight will haunt me for a long time. It was truly awful.
Matt and I both called 911, but Matt’s call was better as he has a local number (I still use my old Fresno number). Emergency dispatch had him stand right next to the baby, as folks were performing CPR so that his location could be tracked.
Emergency vehicles arrived and took the baby right away in the ambulance.
After we got home, Matt found an online news article, stating that the baby boy had died.
Woke up a bit late this morning but still had time for that 1st cup of coffee with my girl. You all know Emily.
Work was good. Stayed busy and generally cheerful the whole day, so yay!
Found out that my pedi spot (Signature Nails in Vallejo) is open with limited folks inside. Couldn’t wait any longer, so I made an appointment, picked up a small frappuccino (because pedi + coffee = happiness), and now I am comfortably ensconced on a massage-y chair, while my feet are pampered. 👑
I spring for the #3 pedi, which includes: scrub, mask, hot stone massage, paraffin foot soak, hot towel wrap, and RAPTURE!
I came home to my sweet girl, and I am now relaxing…admiring my pretty toes:
I’m going to sleep early tonight, as I need to be at work by 8am.
After work tomorrow, I’ll head east toward my heart:
