Facebook is one thing that has taken up some time in the last week. Once you join, you become addicted and have to log on every few hours to see who has accepted your friend request, or responded to your message, or posted a new status. I find that after a week, I need log on only once a day to check on things. But what a great way to connect with old friends, I've found friends from high school that I never thought I'd catch up with and some that I wasn't even that close to that I enjoy corresponding with.
Also in the last month, my beautiful daughter turned 12 amid home-made clam chowder and a new ipod. She is turning into the junior-high schooler I always wished I'd been - pretty, confident and in charge of her own wardrobe. She also participated in the 6th grade concert playing her bass in the orchestra.
