Facebook sucks

I knew it. I gave in. I tried. I received like 55 friend request emails, two "Welcome" emails from Facebook itself, and I allowed myself to get all excited to see what the big deal was but OH, wait--I cant login. Facebook doesn't recognize my email address as linked to my profile and their super unhelpful customer service sent me directly back to the "Help" page which was also nothing but a hugely unhelpful timesuck. So basically my profile exists on Facebook but I cannot do anything with it because I cannot log in. I have managed to waste all kinds of time on Facebook, trying to figure out how to solve this problem, without even Facebooking!!

So anyway. My long awaited arrival to the Facebook was a hoax, even to me. I apparently won't be socializing there.

We are heading to Utah tomorrow and I am finding myself sort of freaking out that Eli is going to miss a whole week of school. I know, it's preschool. But it just kind of reinforces that nagging feeling that I have had ever since Tate was born..."Ok, I am a real mom now. Whoa."

Here are some pictures of his first day that I forgot to post. He loves it. And when I picked him up yesterday, his teacher enthusiastically greeted me with the encouraging words, "Oh, he just keeps getting better every day! He didn't bite any friends today and he brought his listening ears." Music, I tell you; you will never understand how happy this makes me until you have an Eli. Needless to say, he had a bit of a rough start but I think preschool is definitely starting to serve its many purposes.

I was going to ask if you were aware that E is picking his nose in both pics- but Allison covered that. Yahoo fantasy sports has given us the same problem- down with Facebook & Yahoo. Your hair is so cute!

Eli is freaking adorable. He looks like the toughest little dude and ALL BOY. Thats my kind of kid. I think it would be fun if we could get all of us together with all of our kids and watch each of our friends be parents. It would be funny, a little chaotic, but funny.
I have to tell you this "facebook sucks" part of the post totallly cracks me up. I think I would hate FaceBook too if I didn't know how to log on... or if I was computer illiterate. hahahahahahahahaha, but I tease you because you are probably one of the smartest girls I know, or atleast think you are, lol and I loved that you couldn't figure it out....is that completely horrible to say? hahahah, well you know I love you!
