just don’t let it in your front door…


Mommy and daughters by Abigail

I love Facebook, let’s begin with that.  I completely enjoy looking at the pictures people post of their kids, I love witty remarks and I loooove a great quote.

Post election:  I hate Facebook.

I am sad and disappointed, to say the least.  No matter what side you are pulling for… red, blue, or grey (gotta represent the independents!):  BE NICE!

I tried very, very hard not to say mean things about the opposing side.  I honestly think I did a good job.  I even posted about being nice pre-election here.

The mean stuff that floated out there that I deemed worthy to pass on… I copied, pasted and emailed to my mom, dad, and step-mom.   Period.

I found great quotes on Pinterest that I shared… I thought I did a great job weeding out anything I thought would upset anyone.  Nothing I posted on Facebook bashed the other candidate or their supporters.  We are all entitled to our own opinions, I’m fine with that.

Maybe I did not do as good of job as I thought filtering my thoughts and quotes for Facebook.  Although, do know that I honestly tried.

I have been upset for days about Facebook posts.  My parents and husband are sick of me talking about it (so I am turning to my blog). 

My mom made a great point on the phone last night.  She said “You let that stuff right in your front door.”  And, she’s right.  I did.

So, I am closing that Facebook door that has made me so upset.  I will continue to post pictures for my relatives and “soccer-team-family” but that’s it… nobody wants (or needs) to know my every move anyway.

“Just don’t let it in your front door.”

Thanks, Mom.

  1. The blogosphere is so much more understanding and supportive, we tend to attract like-minded followers, whereas facebook isn’t so much about who we are today, its tends to attract all kinds of things we’d left behind and it takes something like an election to realise why the past is often best left there.

    Mom makes a lot of sense. You’ve got it in you too I am sure.
