why facebook rocks

I reluctantly joined Facebook a couple of months ago.

I say "reluctantly" because the thought of joining felt like one more commitment that I just didn't have the time to work into my already over-booked technology schedule.

Then the peer pressure began.

Some of the girls (make that ALL of the girls) that I work with are on it, and I TOTALLY caved. I've never been really good at "just saying no". But that's another post for another day...

I have to tell you, my foray into the World of Facebook has turned out to be a pleasant surprise for me. Yes, it can become a time-sucking black hole if I allow it to (kinda like blog reading!), but as long as I moderate the time I spend on it, it just good, clean fun.

Not only can I talk to the girls from work online, but I can catch up with old friends too. I've reconnected with some friends from high school and college that I hadn't seen or talked to in years...Friends that I would never have been able to find otherwise.

Two of those lost-and-now-found friends are SUPER special to me. The memories we shared together were always held close to my heart, but I just plain missed the daily/weekly interaction of their presence in my life. It's so exciting to be in contact with those precious gals again.

Today, I met one those friends at the mall for a playdate. Our little girls met each other for the first time. I almost cried from the sweetness of the whole thing (I know, shocker, right?). It was nearly impossible for me to get a picture of the two of them sitting still...but here's my best attempt. I just wanted to eat them up!!!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only person alive who was reluctant to jump on the Facebook bandwagon. I have to admit, though, it has been fun meeting up with people I haven't seen/talked to in years.

The picture of the girls is adorable.

Oh, yes, Facebook...I've jumped on the bandwagon myself, although I don't spend nearly as much time on there as I do blog-reading. But I guess it all boils down to way too much computer time for me...gotta work on that...

I'm a facebook-y too (I.love.making.up.words.too)
Anyway, I'm like Jackie too. I prefer the blogging, but facebook is a fun way to get reconnected with friends. Such cute girlies!! :)

Ah! I reluctantly joined a few months ago myself. I am finding it to be much more fun than I had thought because of the ease of catching up with all sorts of people. So fun!
