Things I Just Don't Get #1

I've decided that I'm going to post things I don't get.

First up.

Why are parents now celebrating their kid's birthdays for an entire week??

I've been seeing it lately on Facebook.

Now, maybe I'm just a fuddy dud or a negative Nancy, but I don't care.

It's ridiculous!!!'

Taking your kid out each day for something special for the 7 days leading up to their birthday?

Calling it "Celebrating (insert name here) birth week"


Teaching your kids to expect a big ta-da every year is just setting yourself and them up for future disappointment.

10 Years

In the past 10 years I:

Broke up with a going nowhere loser who I thought was the love of my life.

Dated a few nice guys and a few more losers.

Partied my ass off.

Got married.

Had a kid.

Sometimes I sit around and think about how quickly the past 10 years went by.

So many moments in my life seem like they happened yesterday, yet at the same time feel like they happened ages ago.

Many nights I wish I had a time machine to send me back, just for one night of carefree living.

Bar hopping.


Walking to the next party shoeless in the college neighborhood because my feet hurt.

Getting in at 4 a.m.

Sleeping all day.

Getting up at 7 p.m. and doing it all over again.

Anyone care to join me?

Facebook, what are you?


What are you?

I've tried a few times to quit you and failed.

I don't even like you that much.

Yet I find myself going back for more.

You are like computer crack.

Why do I even care about status updates containing useless information and pictures of kids taking their first crap on the toilet??

It's so dumb!!!

So, Facebook, here I go again, another attempt to bid you farewell.
