Farmville

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

I’m an addict.

I thoroughly admit it.

I farm daily on an imaginary farm in order to earn coins, points, and prizes.

My latest venture…obtaining “Mastery” for all the crops that are offered…meaning they must be planted MANY, MANY, MANY times.  Each crop takes a certain amount of time to grow and if not harvested in time will wither and all coins/work are lost.

It is a stressful game in a way.

How ironic that I use it in order to de-stress 🙂

I know that it takes me away from “real” life, but it is so addicting 🙂

Are you a Farmville addict too?

p.s.  I have to say though…I have NEVER spent REAL money to buy anything on Farmville.  So I’m not as bad as I could be.

We’re still suffering 90 degree days here…hot and humid.

Can’t wait for a break.

Happy 66th Birthday Mom!

*postdated for Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Happy Birthday Mom 🙂

66 years…WOW.

I know I don’t feel like I’m 37 so I can’t even imagine what it’s like to not feel 66!

In 1944, the year my mom was born…

**The average cost of a new house was $3,450

**Average wages per year were $2400

**The cost of a gallon of gas was 15 cents

**A loaf of bread cost 10 cents

**Franklin D. Roosevelt becomes the only president to be elected for a 4th term

**The GI Bill of Rights was passed

**The CIA was formed

**Kidney dialysis and sunscreen were invented

**15-year-old Anne Frank is captured and sent to a concentration camp

Don’t you find history fascinating?

Mom…I love you and wish you a year filled with happiness.  I miss you.
