And the hits just keep on coming. . . . today on my way to attend a deposition, I did a quick check of Fac.eb.ook. . . . only to see an ultrasound photo posted by an old friend (someone I haven't seen in over 20 years).  Mind you, an old friend who is 42 years old and has been married less than six months.  Oh, and did I mention that she already has a child?  And that her child is a girl and this baby is (apparently) a boy?

In (what has become) typical fashion, I felt gut-punched.  No feelings of happiness for her, not only initially but for several minutes afterwards.  I didn't post a congratulations in a comment to her photo or on her "wall."  Nope.

All I could think was "Why her and not me?!"

Yeah.  Good times.

My sister suggested a break.  Probably a good suggestion.


  1. Blech. This just sucks. I had my own bullsh*t with FB yesterday and today and am considering a break, too.

  2. I felt that hit, too! From way over here!

  3. Facebook is evil, I'm sorry you were sidelined today. I have been there many time and it always sucks.

  4. S...I left 2.5 years ago because i couldn't take the announcements anymore. Do what you need to do to stay healthy.

  5. 42? Really? One of each? So unfair.....Thanks Facebook, for bringing me down!!!

  6. Proving once again my theory that Facebook is evil. Seriously, those ultrasound pictures should come with warning labels. Maybe we should all post the pictures of our ultrasounds too. You know, the ones showing cysts, fibroids, etc. Mostly kidding.
