Blogging vs. Facebook

I've noticed over the past year that no one blogs anymore. Everyone is doing Facebook. I enjoyed reading the happenings in friends and families lives and somehow Facebook seems "fake" in many ways. Random posts about weird things in many cases makes me wonder. Going private for many is strange to me when you read some of the stuff they post on Facebook...and the games, holy moly how do these people function? I mean they are on the computer 24/7. I barely check Facebook or blogs anymore and I am inundated with a million requests for stuff from apples to zebras.
Oh well, I will continue to blog as it may turn out to be my life's journal when I am done.

Worked my butt off Saturday trying to catch up on three weeks of yard work - with the summer rains, I'll be behind again on Monday. I am so grateful for the rains, though - I have loved the summer. I always appreciate the beauties that surround me.

Just a short time until Jenna has her baby and I am so excited to be a grandma again. I can't believe it is almost time for this new little one to make her appearance. I don't know how Jenna is gonna do it - raise her from a distance. I have a feeling that Bailey will like her until she realizes that the new baby is a permanent fixture :o) - Bailey tickles me - I LOVE her quirky personality. Gunnar is quiet and reserved and I LOVE that he is kind. Kamryn is a talker and is starting to blossom and loving meeting and talking to people. I LOVE that she is HAPPY and Trentin is a sweet, quiet little guy. I LOVE that he is SWEET.

Jenna and Weston are doing well - he is such a hard worker and good husband and father. So GLAD he picked her! Tad is loving the mines again and is happy in Morenci. Just need to find him a wife so he can start a family...any ideas?
Troy and Maggie have had some struggles and hopefully can overcome them. I worry to death about Maggie and she doesn't seem to get it. She will be the death of me and I thought that was all behind me when she got married. Guess it shows, you truly never get a break from the worries of your family.

Hoping all is well with everyone. Much love and have a happy week.

I told all four of them to "smile" and this is what I got. Sadie's expression says it all!

I agree with the FB/blog thing. I still blog because I like to print out each year into a book as my scrapbook. I also like to read what is going on with people on their blogs and wish more people would update them.
Congrats on the new grandbaby to be. How exciting for Jenna and for you! :)
