Facebook Finatic!

Hello, My name is Shannon Kieta, and I am addicted to Facebook.
I do need to get a life. Not sure if the four walls are getting to me, or if I just need to make some friends, or if it really is a good thing. I have re-connected with alot of people I haven't talked to in twenty some years, since high school. It is really fascinating to me that we can pick up right were we left off. And for the people I used to work with, whom were like family to me, I missed them terribly when I left to have my son, and never returned to work. It's like a part of me I lost a long time ago that I have rekindled and I love it! Am I making any sense at all? Or am I rambling?
I first signed up a few weeks ago on a Saturday when my husband went hunting in Ohio for the day. I knew it would be a long day, so I figured, "What the hell!" I was so hesitant to do it before, afraid of rejection. Just like back in high school. I wanted to be "cool" and hang around the "cool" girls. I don't think I was ever "cool". Just "me". I really surprised me of how many people remembered me and openly accepted me as their friend. I can't believe the support they gave me when my mom was having surgery. It's really great to have that connection with those friends again. I hope this time, we can stay connected forever. And who knows, maybe someday, we can actually "physically" see one another! Thanks to whoever masterminded Facebook...you are the man...or woman!

I totally love FB. I have reconnected with so many people, and keeping up with the family is so much easier. I am in contact with all my cousins again!

Hope your mom is doing well. Hospitals quite often do not care very well for family.

Blessings to you! Megan
