Categorize your friends!


I have an idea. 

You know how you can break your facebook friends down into  groups? There’s acquaintances, close friends, etc. Well i’ve devised a way to categorize my facebook friends. So here, in no particular order are the categories:

  1. friends who will help you move (see also “friends with trucks”)
  2. friends who will pick you up from the airport
  3. friends that will pay for dinner
  4. friends that always “forget” their wallet
  5. friends that give good birthday gifts
  6. friends that have guest rooms in their house
  7. friends that drink (see also “friends that like wine”)
  8. friends that don’t drink (see “friends that are boring”)
  9. friends that will go out on a friday night (see “single friends”)
  10. friends with kids
  11. friends worth inviting over
  12. friends that like wine
  13. friends i will never see in real life
  14. friends i only accepted a request because i felt obligated
  15. friends with convertibles
  16. friends with trucks
  17. friends that are fun (see also “Friends that like wine”)
  18. friends that are depressing (this is an empty column because much like a trash bin it needs to be cleaned out)
  19. why am I still friends with these friends (see above)
  20. exes (i’m stunned that people are actually fb friends with their exes)
  21. Under 18 crowd (hide all posts due to too many acronyms)
  22. funny friends (not to be confused with “fun friends” not all fun friends are funny)
  23. friends who post too many pics of their kids
  24. friends who don’t post enough pics of their kids (Annie)
  25. friends who only stir up trouble (see #18)
  26. friends who leaves embarrassing comments on every post that you must go back later and delete
  27. lurkers (you know who you are)
  28. friends that aren’t really friends, they’re coworkers that I purposely omit from every update so they think i’m boring and don’t post at all but I really I just don’t want them to see into my personal life. 

I think that pretty much narrows it down.

To split them or not to split them.

Lots of people have things they want me to write about. Some ideas are really interesting. Remember when I used to get writers block and I would have you guys give me a first sentence? Those exercises are SOO good for me.  Then there's times that I want to get really serious and heartfelt, but i'm not usually drunk when I write anymore so that's out.

So I've decided to write a blog asking you for advice. Advice that I will, in turn, totally ignore and do the opposite of.  So here we go.

My kids are 6 and 8 years old. My oldest is a boy with autism, and my youngest is a girl with "i want to rule the world" syndrome.

When we first moved into this house they each had their own room. Every night my daughter would ask my son if she could sleep in his bed. He always said yes but he didn't like to say yes. sometimes he just wanted to be alone.

This went on and on for about 2 months. She just couldn't, or didn't want to sleep alone.  So I disassembled his room and turned it into my craft/office room. They share a room now. 3 months later and my son has HAD IT. She is terribly messy and he is beyond neat. I let him reclaim half the office which is now his "office". the only thing in the other room is his dresser and the bed they share. I figure  they'll still be sharing a bed but at least now he has is own space.

Well now he's decided he can't do it anymore and he needs to completely break free of her. He needs to be on his own and she needs to learn how to be alone.

So the question is: how do we break her habit of not sleeping alone?

p.s. since his bed is now in the guest room I think I want to buy him  a cute little twin size bed. Something small and only big enough for 1.

What say you?
