neurotic love & facebook friends

neurotic love and facebook friends, typing those together just seriously made me giggle.  my ramblings today were going to be about facebook friends, and my layout below is about my neurotic dog and how I love him, but after typing my post title, I though wow, neurotic love and facebook friends could certainly be one and the same.

first things first, facebook.  for me facebook is mainly about playing a few games when I'm bored or lazy, or to try and win free scrappy happy things.  I don't post my life business on there.  you'll never know when I am mad at David by reading my wall.  I've been known to use facebook to track what's going on with my kids, but honestly, it just usually ends up putting me in a foul mood when I see something I don't like, and that's been happening a little too often lately I might say. I will sometimes post pics of dogs to share with Jessica and her friend. I truly get tickled every time I use the words, "well, facebook says".  my point is, facebook, for me, does not define nor represent my life, but for some it does, and while I know that, I don't necessarily understand it.  so, when I see that I've been deleted from someones friend list, should I be crushed?  is it wrong for me to find this funny, that a grown adult has taken time from their day to delete me??  and let me tell you, it's not because I'm posting political ramblings or pictures of abused animals, or anything at all.  it would seem that in the last 3 months I've been deleted from 2 facebooks, and I guess I'm just a little shocked at how immature some can be, and maybe confused because I don't know what this is supposed to mean! I do say that with laughter, so please do not think I'm distraught!  these people who have deleted me, they are not just random people, our lives have been entwined, for petes sake, they have places in my scrapbooks!  I'm sure it is supposed to mean something, there is some message they are sending me, like perhaps I don't like you!!! but seriously, why not just come say hey, I don't like you, or I have a problem with this.  because you're deleting me from facebook gives me the giggles!  I'm just saying.  Oh, I should probably say it also lets me know just exactly what type of person they are, and that is much more important than being friends on facebook! :)  and if you are wondering if this is perhaps a message to them, neither read my blog, they are too busy deleting people off facebook! haha

now, on to more fun things, neurotic love!!  my ozzy, he is so neurotic, but I love him so!  neurotic or not, he's mine and I wouldn't change one thing about him!  In this picture, he was not even a year old, and you can see how big he was already.  I'm telling you, he is the biggest yorkie in the history of the world.  The boy is weighing in at 29 pounds and he should be about 7 pounds.  David says he is a giant among his kind, and he is!

This layout is one of the four I need to do with my Gossamer Blue Kit, to get my free album.  I struggled with last months kit, because it was lots of hearts and love and Valentine, which I don't use much of.  I'm not a big Valentine fan, and it's not because my heart was broken on Valentine's day, but more that I see it as a day that merchants want me to spend money to tell some I love them... and please, that's not how I roll. which I think David is secretly happy about because it takes the pressure off.  so, here I have this kit that I'm struggling, thinking I'll do my 4 layouts, but, they will not be ones I just love, and then this!  I came across this picture of ozzy, and he is so stinking adorable.  it's just perfect, and surprise surprise, I love it!  I have to add, this picture of him was before he became neurotic about the camera, now, I have to sneak in and usually I get one shot with the camera.  once he hears the little click, he's gone.

and that is my story of neurotic love and facebook friends.  just remember, if you ever think about deleting me from facebook, it's probably not going to produce the results you wanted.

I love this layout. Not only is the Oz-Dog beyond words adorable, but you have used one of my favorite color schemes. The doilies rock and the "loving these moments" die is awesome.

As for Facebook, I always remember a saying I found back about the time I deleted my account.

"Pinterest makes me like people I don't even know, while Facebook causes me to hate people I do."

That is absolutely the cutest layout ever!!! What a cutie-pie! And I love the doilies and title and twine and everything!!!

I refuse use Facebook. I only opened an account to get a Social Network deal, and I have no intentions of doing anything else with it. Just so none of you get your feelings hurt that I haven't accepted your friend requests. :0)

Friends or not - I love you! Ozzy is so cute and your LO is adorable.

Well if you had to use lovey dovey scrappy supplies on anything, Ozzy is a fabulous choice! Loving the red with the mint green, and really digging the arrows paper! That Ozzy is a very handsome fellow!

Just as long as you love this neurotic facebook friend, it's all good!
Love the layout! That title, the colours, the twine, that paper, that adorable poochie! I've always adored Yorkies, everything but their teeny, tiny size. Ozzy sounds perfect to me. Alas, I think the two I have are my last poochies. Every dog I've had's been a neurotic social misfit and I'm beginning to think I'm the common denominator.
However, I must go now. Cole's making fun of my comments. I think I'll go shame him on facebook.

A 29 lb yorkie??? David's not kidding he's a giant but he's oh so adorable. What a sweet layout. The red is eye catching. Nice touches with the twine.
