Facebook Finds

I joined Facebook to keep up with my teenager, but really never paid too much attention to "socially networking" on it until I learned to play Uno, Farm Town and Farm Ville. (BTW - I need more neighbors so I can hire plowers :))

When my mother was pregnant with me, she agreed to be followed by a student from Case Western University in Cleveland, OH. That young doctor ended up delivering me. I believe I was her first delivery and my mother kept in touch with her and she with my mother after my birth. In fact, she gave me a little stuffed animal that I still have. When I was 10 years old, my family moved from Ohio and while I had several phone calls with that doctor, we eventually lost touch with each other.

I celebrated my 44th birthday last week and this morning when I got on Facebook to check my farms (LOL), I saw a friend request from the doctor that delivered me. What a trip!

That is so cool, I have found some old friends on Facebook, and some have found me. I stay away from the games...already spend too much time there. We could be Facebook friends, if you would like that, request me. Glad you are back in the USA.

What a trip! That's amazing. Facebook is the one place I haven't dared to go online . . . I spend way tooooooo much time online as it is. I just don't think I'd ever get off the computer if I added anything else.

Happy birthday! Welcome home!

Oh, that is sooooo cool!
I am with Mom #1 though, I have a fb account but its the last thing I check. I just don't have the time for another big commitment like that lol!
