When do you blog? Advice?

I swear to goodness when I lay my foot down to really keep up on the blogging is when life happens and I slack again. I need advice, how does everyone keep up with their blog? Do you set aside some time every day to blog? Do you stay up after your family goes to bed? I need help, I really do. I want to keep blogging, I have so much to say, but by the end of the day I am exhausted. I need help people, advice is needed from my lovely blogger moms.

Posting without fact checking.

I cannot stand when people post links or pictures on Facebook without fact checking, or just using plain common sense. Every day I see the same posts over and over again that people post and think that it is going to become true. The one that erks me the most is the damn Bill Gates holding up a sign saying he is going to give you money. First off, you cannot be that stupid to think Facebook can track any amount of Likes to even send you a check...COMMON SENSE PEOPLE, but are you that dumb to be able to tell that the sign he is holding is clearly photo-shopped? Look at this picture and please tell me how anyone can think this is real? 

Can you not tell that it is a common FONT? It doesn't even look like he wrote it. I want to bang my head off the closet wall every time I see someone post this....then I want to go to the posters house and bang their head off the wall, because these people cannot be that stupid...or can they? it doesn't take but a minute, you can search and see what you are about to post is true or not, that way you save yourself from looking like an asshole.

Elf on the Shelf Day 2

I slept downstairs last night (see my anxiety post) with Zayden, Xavier didn't have school so woke up around 7am and came down on the couch to lay with us. The first words out of his mouth "where is Chippy" I was half sleep but replied "I have no idea" 

........15 minutes later....."MOMMY LOOK AT THE TREE" how it took this boy 15 minutes to see the tree I will never know, but I thought it was cute. He ran over to see what good ol'Chippy put all over the tree....which is Toilet Paper! 

Chippy strikes again!

The Celebrity Death Posts.

Facebook is an interesting place with many interesting people...but what gets me is when a celebrity dies. When a celebrity dies you get many types of "facebookers" that come up with different things to write about it, but there are always the over sensitive people that have to try to look like the saints from the situation. They take every post that everyone writes personal, and if you make a joke, or write something they don't agree with you are "heartless" and rude".

With the recent tragedies over the past 24 hours I have been reading post after post of how sad everyone is over a tragic loss of a popular actor. If you read down my time line you would think these people knew this person personally, had drinks with them every weekend, and texted them daily. They go on and on about how much of a great guy he was, great father...when in reality they have no idea what he was like in his personal lives.

Then I read down more and there are the people that post jokes about the death, even if they aren't jokes they are little sly comments that bring light to the situation. I feel bad for anyone that does this because the people that are in a state of mourning  take it personal and start lashing out about how rude the jokers are, how "heartless"? Really, is it that serious? There are people that complain that these jokers do not take death seriously....really?

People forget that social media is not for the serious. If you want serious please go to a news page, or to a place where it is just serious conversation. First off, there is no need to get that worked up over someone that you do not know, if your life is that boring to where you have time to reply to people over and over again about a celebrity death, I think you need to get a hobby. There is no need for the posting and re-posting of pictures of that person, RIP'ing that person, we know he/she died. Get over it.

Am I a bitch? Maybe...but grow up people, get a life, you didn't even know that person....we don't care. And we are not heartless because we make light of a situation, some people mourn differently (in no way would i ever mourn someone I do not know) but some people handle death a lot differently. So take a look in the mirror if you are calling people "heartless" and "rude" just because we are not sitting there crying over pictures over the death of someone we never met.

Elf on the Shelf, Day 1

After taking a short and sweet trip to the North Pole to visit Santa, Chippy came back to the Craddock's house and made himself comfy in Xavier's shoe...hanging in the doorway of the living room. My guess he is getting a better view of the boys up there, I know Xavier is keeping on his best behavior now that Chippy can see him in the living room and game room! Good choice of hang outs Chippy!

I wonder what he is going to get into tonight!!!
