It's so easy in life to substitute one thing for another whether it be good or bad. There's always a need/want that wants/needs to be filled.

I'm not trying to get "deep" here or anything, but I did want to make a confession. I've been doing a lot of substitutions.

And it's all Facebooks fault.

You see this little ol' blog of mine hasn't seen much action these past few months. You could say I fell off the hypothetical blog-wagon and that would be half true. Time and energy just haven't made blogging a priority in my life.

But I have Facebook and that has provided me with an outlet to briefly get those quirky thoughts that would have normally evolved into a blog post out of my head. And that's a good thing in one sense.

I like having the option of stating what's on my mind for the whole Facebook world of my friends to see, not that it's anything of importance, but usually a random thought here and there.

So, just to recap for any of you who read my blog and are not listed as a friend of mine on Facebook, here are my "what's on your mind" posts, or my "mini-blogs" for the month of August.

  • The sandbox is SO overrated!

  • Taste of Cleveland wasn't all I thought it would be. Oh well. Up next, Popcorn Fest.

  • Has anyone used Skype before?

  • Went to check on Luke who was playing with chalk in the driveway, and I asked him what he was doing. He replied, "I'm chalking." I didn't know you could use that word as a verb, but I guess when you're 4 it's quite alright and pretty cute if you ask me.

  • Skipped step class tonight to have dinner with the family and in-laws at Cheesecake Factory - no regrets!

  • Wow my muscles could use a massage right about now.

  • Watching the movie Bridge To Terabithia with my boys. Looks like I don't have to wash my eye make up off tonight. Geesh!

  • A cupcake and coffee for breakfast. Not a bad way to start the day.

  • I almost had a panic attack. I thought I ran out of wine. But I'm good now.

  • At doctor's office waiting to get Carson's cast off. (August 26th)

  • Anyone want to take a guess as to how many infections were found on my oldest son's computer? Go on, give it a try.
  • So the correct answer is 368! Ridiculous. Needless to say, the computer is dead and is not getting fixed.

  • So I asked my 6 y.o. if he was excited for his 1st day of school tomorrow and he replied, "I hope I don't have to sit next to any girls." Typical response from a 1st grade boy.

  • I am so hooked on hummus.

  • Today's equation: Humidity + a whack job haircut = mushroom head = eternal ponytails.

  • My 4 y.o. just pointed at a martini glass and asked why I don't use that one? I said, "because it's for martinis." And he replied, "Oh, it's for your teenies."

  • Went to the Dr. and found out I have some type of eye infection and have to wear my glasses for the next week. I hope they stay on my face when I'm jumping around at the gym.

  • Enjoyed a good 2 hours at the gym tonight and subbed a few classes. Good times. Wine and bed. Goodnight!

  • Heading up to Chicago for the Edwin concert tonight!

  • Will someone come over and clean my house for me please? I'm just not in the mood.

  • $75 and 2 cuts later, I'm still not happy with my hair. Ugh. I miss my Indiana hair stylist.

  • Just popped in the movie "The Goonies" - and in 80's style I am watching it via VHS tape. Am I authentic or what?!?!

  • Chop, chippity, chop, chop.....

  • To chop or not to chop? That is my question.

  • Was greeted by a snake and a toad while sitting outside in the front yard this evening. Sorry Becky for screaming in your ear when we were on the phone!

  • I should still be sleeping, but my mind is running. Looks like it's coffee time.

  • Lovin' the Cherry Kiss Martinis tonight - thanks Kristin - wish you were here!

  • Just watched "I am Legend." I think I may have some bad dreams tonight.

  • Oh sunshine, how I adore thee.

  • Woke up to a yard full of trash and toilet paper. Gotta love those rascals, I mean adolescents.

  • Wishes someone would just buy our house already.

  • Ready for a shower and a tall glass of water!
