About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.


Yup, I’m a Twit!

Facebook Has a Purpose

I know that sounds nutty, but it’s true.  Remember my story last week about the high school boyfriend?  Well, he’s on Facebook.  I consternated about sending him a message, I went back and forth, and finally decided to do it.  I kept it very short and simple, told him I’d been thinking about him and that I was sorry for the way I had treated him, and that I hoped he was doing well.

He responded.  The first two words of his message?  “It’s okay.”  After 18 years of guilt and regret, those two simple words made a huge change.  He said he’s doing well, and is happily married, and to tell my parents and brother hello.  Mom’s going to shit when I tell her.  😀

I have no idea if we will actually keep in touch or if that will be the end of it, but I am so glad that I took the chance.  And if it hadn’t been for Facebook, I probably wouldn’t have.
