Anyone that knows me, knows I'm social media illiterate. You won't find me on Facebook or Snap chat (I'm still not 100% sure I even know what the point of snap chat is) or Instagram. It's not that I'm strictly opposed to them, I just haven't found a need to be on them and now it's kind of my "thing." I'm the only person on earth without a Facebook account. :) (and yes, I still do the ":" ")" to make a smiley face). Even my father - who has a passionate hate relationship with technology has a FB account and knows more about Facebook than I do. What you might find interesting is that, I actually have a degree in Information Technology and currently have a full time job in IT. So, why didn't I jump on the social media band wagon years ago? One word for you - kids! While some might be on Facebook simply to showcase their kiddos and keep in touch with fellow mommas, I have found I have little to no time at all for anything other than cooking, cleaning, sleeping and working (I have to hide in the restroom just to check my text messages). How does one find time to check and update Facebook? I honestly don't know. I remember just before I had kiddos of my own, a dear co-worker of mine mentioning that he didn't know what he did with all his time before kids. I find myself in the exact same position now. I don't know what happened to the last 10 years of my life. It's like I went to sleep as a newlywed and woke up with 4 kids, running from one thing to the next. It's certainly been a joy but I just don't know what happened to the time. Ahhhh...maybe if I had been on Facebook, I could look back and see. Oh snap! (wait! is that phrase no longer cool...oh well, just goes along with the mom territory to be a decade behind on catch phrases...ack! what has my life come to?)
Anyway...all that to say, I have no idea what I'm doing writing a blog and wondering why in the world anyone would want to read it. But, my husband suggested I do something to let people know who we are at Hubbard Family Ranch. I don't know where this will go and like I said, I doubt anyone in the world will really want to read it, other than me. But, since I don't have Facebook...I guess I'll have this to use as my digital journal, so that maybe 10 years from now when I'm saying "what happened to the last 10 years?" I'll have this to see where I came from. Hmmmm "came from?" I guess that would mean I will have arrived somewhere else in 10 years? Who knows where that will be?
