Time waster.

I have my Christmas cards finished (hooray). I have wrapped and mailed all out of town Christmas presents (yay!). But... I still need to wrap EVERYTHING for people in town, I need to do a lot of Christmas baking for my family and neighbors, and I need to start preparing for Christmas Eve dinner, which I am hosting at our house for 20+ people.

So how did I spend my day? Not on anything Christmas related. I messed around on that time-waster, Facebook. I have reconnected with a lot of old high school and church friends from Atlanta there, which has been quite fun. But Friday, someone invited me to join a Facebook group comprised of friends from my church in Houston (where my parents moved while I was in college). Today I have been in touch with several people from that period of my life who were very dear to me but with whom I'd lost touch. One guy posted some 400-odd pictures of our old youth group. I haven't even come close to looking at them all, but boy, did they ever bring back great memories!

So, did I accomplish anything of substance today? No. Did I have a wonderful, wonderful journey down Memory Lane? Yes!

Tomorrow, though - no computer for me!

I am guilty of staying on the computer way to much some times.

What fun though on a trip down memory lane.....

I think that the people we love, both past and present, are very Christmas-related, so yes, you did spend time on something that I think God enjoys knowing you enjoyed...thinking about those we love...that is what it is all about, sweet Eloise.

I need to be SUPER productive for the rest of the day, but am lacking motivation too. Watching movies and catching up on blogs is so much more appealing.

time waster, but such FUN! And you deserve it.

So enjoyed your card...the picture is so wonderful!

Except for church, I've been snuggled in my bed with a heating pad and a good book:-). Back to work for me tomorrow, too!

Time enjoyed is never wasted.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Merry Christmas!

Too funny -- just two days ago I got an e-mail thru Facebook from a guy I met back on a trip to London in 1986! I remember we had a romantic evening walking through St. James Park on a cold winter night. Anyway he somehow found me and wrote. It was sooo wild to hear from him - he's married now with two kids! Facebook is amazing.
