Don't judge me for my farm

What? Where have I been?

Maybe I spent a couple weeks lying on the beach in Carlsbad and eating doughnuts.

Or maybe, I got new ipad for my birthiversary, and I've been playing all the apps that have been on my phone for a year (farm story) but seem a lot more interesting LARGE, watching movies I can rent on itunes, breaking into my parents' kindle account (31 new books. Don't hate me cause I got the new Anna Quindlen that had a 50 person wait list at the library), and otherwise becoming completely brainwashed by Steve Jobs and his lovely technology.

Or maybe, both are true.

And to all the people on Facebook I ridiculed for having online farms: I'm so sorry. Sometimes you just can't stop yourself. I see that now. And sometimes it just feels good and very relaxing to get some virtual dirt under your nails? Is like therapy, maybe? And people should just respect that and not make u feel bad if u need to earn money for your grain silo instead of cooking dinner, cause summer is long and five is a lot of kids, especially if they are loud and smart and hyperactive and bored, and it is 115 degrees outside, which is nearly too hot to swim. I really love all of them but school starts two weeks from today. And I'm not sad about it.

More later. I need to go harvest some melons.

What's your therapy?

I just had to tell you that I am laughing thinking about you "harvesting melons" when you are probably nursing a baby, it was just a funny picture. Sorry if it is inappropriate.

I'm glad you have a farm. Everyone is so into buying local. Good for you!

I like your layout! I don't know how you haven't gone insane with 5 kids in a house all day due to Arizona heat. If you need Farmville to get you through, so be it!

My therapy is reading...keep thinking I wanna get a kindle.

Yeah. I had to go cold turkey on Farm Town on Facebook. I knew I had a problem, cos I worried that if i took the kids to the park, I wouldn't be home in time to harvest my crops. I'm 8 months clean now. I'm 8 months clean...
