Whiny Wednesday

  • What's up with the WIND?!?!
  • Is going to be warm or cold - please make a decision....60 yesterday...40s today...almost 70 this weekend?!?!
  • Social media - love it or hate it?  Right now I am hating it...well, hate may be too strong a word...intensely disliking may be better.  (Stepping up on my soapbox now)  I think I understand the need for social media - it is a fantastic way to keep up to date with the goings on of the people in your life that you may not have the chance to interact with on a regular basis - they live really far away, they work opposite hours of yours, etc. However, there are some people out there who can't seem to help themselves and take it to the extreme.  They use it as their personal mountaintop on which they can climb and scream it out for the whole world to hear, whether anyone wants to hear it or not.  If you are a friend of mine on Facebook, you will notice that I do not post every day...well, same could be said for my blog!!!   Anyway, I am not the kind of person who puts it all out there for the whole world to know.  I am a rather private person - and I recognize that some are not like that.  But do you really need to put everyone's personal stuff out there when they didn't even put it on their own page?  I guess I just don't understand the need to be knee-deep in drama, every minute, of every hour, of every day.  Or the need to stick my nose in everyone else's drama if I don't have any of my own at the moment.  Believe me, I have enough going on in my life right now that I don't need to add anyone else's crap to the list.  I just wish they would be a little more sensitive to their "friends" and show a little self-restraint and manners before broadcasting something that is not theirs to share.  Ok - I am done (stepping down off soapbox now).
Hope everyone has a super day!

Going to hop on the Whiny Wednesday train, but can't vent over at my place...

On a non-farm note: The more a man needs me, the less I want him! Why don't they get that?! And on the social media thing: Stupid "relationship" status crap of me not being what he "needs", grrrrr.

I'm with you on the weather, we're doing the 40/70 swing too...

My yards look like crap, but no energy to go tackle them. I'll wait til spring I suppose.

On a non-whiny note, I am drooling over seed catalogues, and have started my first set of seedlings, hurray!
