Men have their hobbies....


Sunday we were relaxing in the somewhat warm, but yes sunny weather, and I pulled out the computer to check blogs and look at facebook. After about two minutes, Matt starts singing a song about Facebook, {if I could remember the right words I would share it with you, maybe I will get it out again} and how he is married to Facebook now. I just laughed if off, but I started thinking is that true? I really am not on if very much, I have to give myself time limits because I have found times where I jump from creative blog to the next and start thinking of all the fun things to do, but an hour {or two} would go by and now I have taken way too much time out of my day!! So I quickly got off, and beat him up.

But later on, I was taking to my sister Connie, {sad to say but it was on facebook again, but thats because I got off before doing anything and beat Matt up, right?!} and I told her what Matt had said, she had the worlds best response... " yeah but it's just 20 minutes. and for some reason men are just not interested. that's the difference between us. And one I guess we can be grateful for. Men need their hobbies and we need our friends (and sisters...)".

That summed it up perfectly for me. We talked about the friends we never really see, but feel like we still know because of Facebook/blog pictures, and even those we don't really know. I have gotten some great ideas for things to do with my family, things to make and see how creative people in my ward are { I have to say our Ward has way too many amaxing people to be in one ward....}. We both felt some people share a bit too much info, we both weren't that brave, but it's still a lot of fun to look at...

SO in my response to Matt about his "I am married to Facebook" song, I will be debuting "I am married to: bow hunting, ice fishing, hunting, anything that has to do with the outdoors" song next week. Stay tuned. I am a really good singer.

And Con thanks for the idea, you really might find that hanging on my wall done in cross stich, but i have to find it online for making a pattern.....

Hmmm. Kinda reminds me of something else men are not interested in after 20 minutes...

Oh yes. Thanks for reminding me of that great comment. When you find the pattern for that cross-stitch let me know. We can make it together as we think about all the things our husbands do to keep themselves "busy." Love ya and your words!

Too funny. I agree. It's just a fun way to veg out for a little while. Catch up with friends and relatives. Great post.. and I want to hear this song.

LOVE it! My song for Randy would be really long because it would have to name every sport in existence. :)
