Carter now pulls up on any and everything that he can and he LOVES to walk while holding onto something. This weekend, Justin was running a race in Oregon so I had the little one to myself all weekend. Since it was rather hot on Saturday, I decided to go to our neighborhood pool. I was shocked that no one was there. I know we’re pretty much out of pool season, but you know, it was 85 degrees so to me, that’s still pool season!!! We had the entire pool to ourselves too! I usually put Carter in a float and we get in the big pool together, but the water was a little cold for me so instead, I put his float in the baby pool. That pool is only 1 foot deep so Carter could have literally stood in it if he wanted, but he used his float to find a more entertaining way of keeping busy:
Love him :)
On another note, today marks 4 weeks since I got off facebook. Let me just tell you, it’s been pretty incredible. I have no idea what is going on in other people’s lives and honestly, it’s rather freeing. I don’t see the insane negative comments and slander going back and forth in my newsfeed due to football season, I don’t see complaints left and right about people’s jobs or families nor do I see those insanely crazy “please pay attention to me” type of status’. I find that I am much happier, literally. My mood has been so incredible because I am off facebook. There have been moments though that I have wanted to bring my page back. No addiction goes away without the desire to get that craving filled hanging over you like a cloud. But honestly, the temptation has been so much less than I expected. I have plenty of other things to keep me busy and I am truly just enjoying MY life instead of knowing what is going on in everyone else’s life. Even if you get off facebook for just a week or even a month, I suggest it!
