Note: I am following my own advice (and my heart)... taking a few days to focus on my family and my own inner sense of balance.
Remember: life balance isn't about perfectly managing all the external stuff. The great juggling act.
True life balance is internal. When things get really crazy -- that's when it's more important than ever to stop and take care of you. Or, me in this case.
Charlene has blocked the following Applications: Mob Wars, Farmville, Compare People, Scramble, Word Twist, Mafia Wars, Pieces of Flair, Bumper Sticker, Pet Society, Hatchlings, Barn Buddy, Whoopdeedoo and Hoopla.
Charlene ignored requests to take many ridiculous Facebook quizzes including, "Which Facebook Quiz Are You?"
Okay, so while I really do love connecting with friends and family on Facebook, I'm not a fan of the zillions of applications and quizzes which are splattered all over my wall every single flippin' day. Do I want to know which Harry Potter character I am? Seriously???
Thank goodness for the hide this quiz and block this application buttons. Otherwise, all that "be nice" preaching I just gave you would be purely theoretical.
That said, I have accepted a few virtual cocktails. A girl has her vices. What can I say?
There are a few other exceptions. This was one of them which my kids helped me complete:
