So my mom joined facebook. My mom can barely turn the computer on. I can't figure out why she joined. I use to have this blog linked on my profile page for friends. I removed it before I accepted her friend request. You can't ignore your mom's friend request right? I am her only friend so far.
I asked her why she joined. She said she wanted to see how it worked. If she was reconnecting with friends, it wouldn't seem so weird. I got paranoid that somehow she heard I had this blog, and knew she could find it on my facebook page. I don't think that is the case anymore. At least I hope it is not. It is not like I post inappropriate things on this blog or on facebook but it is nice to have places to share my thoughts without worrying about offending my parents or in-laws.
I talk to my mother at least 3 times a week. I write a family blog that she reads. We do not need to connect more. I can't help but feel like she is picking up the phone extension and spying on my conversations. I caught her doing that when I was in 7th grade and tried to meet a boy at the movies for a date.
So I'm ticked off that I can't figure out why mom joined facebook. If I know you in real life, please do not let it slip that I write this blog to my parents or in-laws. I value these "private" conversations too much.
What is ticking you off this Tuesday? Feel free to share in the comments.
