Cheating On My Husband With Facebook, Blogs, & Twitter


***Social Media Ruined My Cookies!*****

 

 

 

 

It all started with Facebook.

 

After I signed up, there was no turning back.

 

The universe cracked open & out flowed a drug called–  I will like you “I will validate you.”

 

The addiction began.

 

50 friends.   Cool.

 

100 friends.  Wow.

 

500 friends.    Amazing.

 

I had no idea I was that freaking popular, that freaking interesting.

 

Conversations like—Will you be my friend? Are you on Facebook? Did you see the grumpy cat, the loudest purring cat, or the fluffiest cat became ordinary conversations with co-workers, friends, acquaintances.

 

I became fascinated about where people dined for dinner, bought their shoes, how they made Better Than Sex Chocolate Cake, and where they traveled for vacation.

 

You mean, you spent spring break in Belize sunbathing?  You lucky bitch girl.

 

I could monitor who had new babies, old high school friends, previous boyfriends, co-workers, and read about your perfect kids being accepted into Harvard, Princeton, Yale.

 

I could even stalk my own boys by instant messaging them to get their asses home to mow the lawn.

 

They are no longer on Facebook and presently label me –“The Creeper.”

 

Really?   Meeee?

 

As if Facebook wasn’t enough, I began blogging.

 

Words, syllables, & stories poured out like, well, have you watched The Exorcist?

 

Remember that green slime flying from the mouth of Linda Blair?

 

Um, sort of like that.

 

When Mr. Liverpool asked how my day was, I ‘d retort, “If you read my blog, you’d know. Haven’t you checked my Facebook page?”

 

:::Sheesh:::

 

The cheek of Brits nowadays.

 

So…

 

Saturday, I’d write my blog post while the bacon fried, the ham sizzled, or I baked gooey chocolate chip cookies.

 

And I’d typically hear something like this from the back room, “Kim, will you please get in the kitchen to take care of this bacon?” Or “Kim, can’t you hear the fire alarm? The cookies are buuuuurning!”

 

Yesterday, Mr. Liverpool said in a serious tone, “I need to tell you something important. Now, don’t get mad at me for telling you this.”

 

“Okay, what?”

 

Was the dude having an affair?  Did I do something bad?   Again.   Did I crash the computer?   Did I remember to pay my TJ Max bill?  I simply had to have those black boots!

 

“You’re addicted.” He finally said.

 

“I don’t drink that much wine,” I replied.   “I’m down to,  gosh,  a glass a day.”

 

“No, not the wine, Kim. You’re addicted to Social Media. It’s the first thing you go to in the morning.”

 

Now, if you know me, you definitely know I don’t take criticism well… but I couldn’t fight this.

 

It was true. It was positively true.

 

All I could do was nod knowingly, understandingly, empathetically.

 

After that deep conversation, I tweeted this story.

 

——Darling,  Reader,  are you addicted to your cell phone,  internet,  Twitter,  blogs,  Or  Facebook?

    First of all, I love burnt chocolate chip cookies. Please ship them to me. <3 Second of all, I'm actually a little addicted to your blogs. Thirdly, well, yes. I have a love-hate relationship with social media. And my friends' perfect kids.

    Btw…your husband being from England is soooo sexy. No, I won’t get weird about it but English and Aussie accents rock! LOL to stalking your kids! And the Exorcist is HANDS DOWN my FAV all time fav horror movie, Kim! Oh honey, I would be addicted to social media too if I had the time. I just don’t. You know that precious face of the beautiful soul I live with? Social media or my baby boy? There is no second thoughts there. Hey, a few of those cookies look ok…send them please. We love you so much! 🙂

    I don’t play Facebook, and am enough of a twit without twitter. But yes, I am addicted to the blogosphere. Shamefully so. When I got up (before five) this morning that is where I started my day. And is probably where I will finish it.

    Ah, Kim. Big, gusty sigh.

    I admit I have been addicted to blogging for 6 1/2 years, and can’t possibly stop, even though I don’t get as MUCH validation as I like from it (and surely deserve :))

    For human contact, though, I’m addicted to being in person with others. Facebook etc. doesn’t meet my needs for contact at all.

    I just struggled with Evite and our contact list for much of the morning (at least Mr. Hinckley helped) in order to invite people to our Last Sunday Dinner & Soiree. In-person socializing!

    FINALLY clicked the send button, then came right over here to visit.

    How ironic is it that I had to struggle with technology for much of a Saturday in order to arrange an in-person get-together?

    I love your honesty about your addiction. We’ve all got ’em. The more honest we are about them the better.

    I had to deal with that last year, to walk away. It hurt just like when I quit smoking!! I now have to FORCE myself NOT to head to the office before I do anything else for the day. I had to use the computer as a “reward” to myself AFTER I do something constructive. I don’t Facebook (other than automatic notifications) except when I get there by accident and have to watch that I don’t get sucked in reading everyone’s blurps. I realized right off the bat that FB would be a time sucker and I couldn’t afford that. No more tweets (*sigh*) and only occasional posts. The addiction is very real, that is for sure! But please… don’t go away, don’t leave us hanging out here without you!!!

      As far as Social Media. I am quite aware that this can become an addiction…

      Awarenss is the first step to recovery.

Bloglovin’ is evil because if you think you’re going to get anything done once you open that baby, you’re done for. Hours of pouring over beautiful sites, funny sites all with irresistible stories and photos. UGH, But Kim yours is by far one of my favorites and not to be missed!

      I am mostly addicted to BLOGGING, writing, words, reading about other people.

      NOT facebook so much, although I’m interested in what people are up to, you know?

      For example, what they had in their sub sandwhich!! HAAaa

    Yes, Kim! I’m addicted to my phone. I keep checking my email and often I don’t even realize I’m doing it. My iPad is attached to my arm. I’m constantly working on my next blog, reading my Facebook feed, or checking on Twitter. Also, I love Pinterest. I could lose myself there for hours!. So yes, I’m addicted, too! Take that, Mr. Liverpool!

    RE social media: I’m on the fence. Love blogs and blogging but really dislike personal FB pages–I’m an expert at de-friending and clicking “hide this person.” (After watching 2 people have ugly public breakdowns on FB I got almost physically sick.) No Interest in Pinterest. And I pray Twitter is just a passing fad. Please Lord!!! xxxxx

    People find me addicted to my laptop or phone, but it’s not true. I don’t think I am. It frustrates me a lot when I’m accused of that. A counselor told me less than a week ago: If you look at a poor child who has been starving for years, and who finally found a place where he could get some food, would you consider him addicted or dependant if he tries to stay in that place? Her question made a lot of sense. I’m on FB 24/7 because it’s the place where I feel that I exist.

    Dear Kim, addicted to social media – yes and no, yes, because I believe I spend quite a bit of time blogging and thinking about blog posts and planning new blog posts but then again, no, as I stay away from Twitter and Instagram etc. – there is just not enough time in a day for all this. But then again it is early Sunday morning here and as I am sipping my coffee and everybody else in the house is still sleeping, I just had to read this post…

I’ve been told I’m addicted too. To me it’s like checking in on what’s going on like we did years back with the morning paper….Oh, my kids call me a Creeper too….so you’re in good company!

    Oh, my dearie, how I can relate! I used to be addicted. Getting sick last June set the breaking of that addiction in motion, and going back to school as of October effectively sealed the deal. Honoring a Lenten fast from my personal Facebook is a beautiful reminder of life beyond the artificially-illuminated screen.

    There are worse things to be addicted to, obviously. If it’s not hurting anything other than the occasional too-crisp bacon or slightly singed chocolate chip cookies… *shrug* 😉

    Poor Mr. L. It must be terrible having to suffer through burned cookies! Then again, it’s probably terrible being in love with a writer period, ha! I, of course, wouldn’t know, since I’m the one doing the writing (and probably causing grief to everyone who loves me!)

    Not to my phone, no. Certainly my computer, but I have a good excuse. It is nearly my only form of social interaction, truly. I spent most of my adult life on the road, all my friends live somewhere other than where I live so the only way I interact is through social media. I am trying to change, I am but it isn’t easy.

    Add to this, I am currently looking for work and this is the best and only source.

    Addicted? Well Yes.

    But without this, I wouldn’t know you, so I think I will keep this one sin.

    I love you.

    Its a difficult one for me. I started out with FB because it was a good way to keep up on events with my daughters who are spread around the country. Then I started Blogging because ‘her indoors’ was overloaded with my crazy musing, and I found only a blank screen had the patience to listen to me, then I got picked up by a publisher who has just told me, when I mentioned someone had reviewed it, to “Pump that SEO”. Now I’ve no idea what that is, or what it means, but it certainly doesn’t mean, go into the kitchen and see if the bacon is burnt. That would be GITKASITBIB, which might catch on soon in my household.

    HAHAHA! I’m trying to be better. Definitely not addicted to my phone (ask my family – I’m always forgetting it.) Trying to be better about Facebook and Twitter (and Instagram). Though I did find it 100% necessary to Instagram/Tweet pictures of every winery my husband and I visited on our 20th anniversary trip to Paso Robles this past weekend. Not sure that was really necessary. Or appreciated.

    The answer is obvious, isn’t it, Kim? Less social media, more wine! (And more you, of course!)

    I had to uninstall Facebook from my phone because every moment between breaths I was checking it. For what? Oh, you know, Kim…nothing and everything! Something!
    How does it happen? I’m addicted, too. Perhaps we could start a support group. Online. Oh, a new Facebook group? FBA.
    Love you!!

    Throw some frosting on those puppies. I inadvertently made penis cookies for Christmas…they were supposed to be candy canes…and someone on twitter said “Frost them!” …. they turned out to look like circus dicks.
    I totally get the addiction. I try to step back from time to time. You need to…cause no one is cleaning the toilet.

    YOU do not even WANT TO GET ME STARTED about social media! However, I have really CALMED MY BUTT DOWN about #####s!! I hate being defined by a NUMBER but in the industry that I am in, it’s ALL ABOUT your FB fans and followers, twitter followers, instagram followers, etc! AHHHHHH!!!! It’s so annoying!!!!! Why do we define our self worth by our social media numbers! 🙁

      People actually do define themselves by how many hits, friends, etc…

    Well….I have to admit I am always irritated by the addiction to social media that everyone seems to have. However with that said, I opened an Etsy store to sell fabric a few weeks ago and I swear I just want to say fuck (I also LOVE that word Kim) my job and stay home and pin, tweet, like, follow, and post everything I come across in hopes that somebody will buy my fabric. A girl can only dream!
    I have actually told my kids that I am closing my facebook account a couple of times and there I am sitting in the bathroom back on so they will not see me. Good lord! Craziness!
    The only time I can put it down is for a good book.
    So yes I am also cheating on my hubby but he still loves me a bunch.

    I’m smiling as I write this. I doubt if there are any bloggers out there who aren’t addicted to social media. The two most certainly go hand in hand. As for the cookies, I’m sure mr Liverpool was more sad about those than the addiction. 😉

    Hubby and I often joke with each other how it’s hard to remember what life was like before our devices. There are time we make an effort to not pick up the phones (like when out to dinner), but too often we reach for a phone or a tablet out of boredom or lack of anything else constructive to do, like the way we’ll reach for a bag of chips or a brownie when not really hungry.

    Addiction is definitely the word for it. My husband use to hate it more until I finally started making a little money from my blog. If we’re on an official date night, I try hard not to get the iPhone out of the purse, but it does make me a little twitchy 🙂

    Yes, I’m’ drawn in. Especially on those cold weather days. The recipes on fb rock, I love the cute animal pics and videos, and connecting with relatives I rarely get to see.

    And of course reading your blogs.

    The first thing I do in the morning and the last thing I do at night is check my social media accounts. I am hooked. it is like crack and I can’t swear it off. Sometimes? (OK, all the time) I check my phone in the bathroom…

    I think I’m addicted to blogging. The rest I can do occasionally. And I even schedule breaks from my social media.

    That said, I’ve been to a blogger’s conference and I have seen some serious social media mavens.

    I used to be, so I know how this feels. But I’m made it a point to not touch social media when the kids are awake or when I’m with my husband. Naptimes, evening time – when everyone’s asleep, while using the bathroom….times when I’m naturally alone – those are when I try to all things social media. It’s a little hard to do, but family first! 😉
