Don't get me wrong. I still hate the new design. I know it's not going to change back and that there will probably be another redesign before the year is out just because they seem to be on a six month cycle. I think a lot of the applications are more like viruses and and I am not a fan of all of my friends getting targeted with advertising meant for me. In other words, this is not a love song for Facebook. But in the past six months I have connected with so many friends from my past and my present that it makes dealing with the ever present updates and losing the day's events. (I think there is a birthday today, but I can't find it on the page to send a note!)
Yesterday and today for example. Yesterday a friend of mine put up a note that is based on the movie Pay it Forward (which I now realize I should have put in my top 5 movies) only this is Create it Forward. The deal is that you post the note on your profile and the first 5 people who respond will receive something made by you. There aren't that many guidelines other than that. So far I have 4 takers for something I make.
Today I woke up at 4:30. Excuse this time - Sammy woke up which got me up and knowing me, just haven't gotten back to sleep. Not fun. So I went on Facebook for a bit and wound up talking with a good friend from high school. One of those friends that I felt close with but wasn't sure she felt the same until today - so that is a great way to start the day.
I am very lucky. I have more friends than I ever thought I did. It took a website to teach me that.
How very ironic.
PS - Sammy update. He said "star" at preschool yesterday. Haven't gotten him to say it here, but he said it at school!
